Ok. I will check into that. Went by Friday to check on where I am suposed to be on Monday, then went on down to Sabine Pass and on out to where hiway 86 ends. That was super cool to drive down the beach.

I live in Bridge City just north of Port Arthur. What kind of work are you looking for?

I am an electrician working out of Lu479. I start tomorrow at the valero plant. Hope it lasts for a few months.

Re: new to the area

You can go to Spindletop, shows the oil boom of Southeast Texas. I found it very interesting. I knew a little bit about it but not much since I'm not from around here. Also in Orange there is a museum with old guns...has alot of paintings and other things about the old west. Those are pretty good family things I guess. Whenever you want, Im sure a couple guys from around here wouldnt mind going and having a few somewhere.
