Moncton - My working vacation
"A Texan in New Brunswick: Side by Side comparisons"
In Sept I was sent to Moncton, NB, Canada by ExxonMobil based in Dallas Texas to - for all intents and purposes - train my replacements. Such is outsourcing in the tech support world. Thankfully accents were taken into account and the Canadian heldesk was a joy to work with. I stayed 3 weeks overlapping to October and I had to come back. After much whining, they did indeed send me again during Jan -Feb. I think it was really because I had once lived in Fairbanks Alaska and therefore could handle the weather better than most. Moncton had 3 blizzards the week before I arrived so here was no lack of snow. Cold - but it was no Fairbanks. The Fall prior I had spent was simply gorgeous. There are a lot of trees in the town and very little urban decay.
I'm writing this from what I feel is my final business related trip here and I'm making plans to come back in the summer and bringing someone special with me.
Most of what I'm going to write in here will be in comparison to Texas.
Moncton - 3rd floor walkup on Archibald St. 1977
"How did I get here?"
I joined DAVID JAMES BAND and we went on a tour of the Maritimes ended staying in NB 4 or 5 years. I took an apartement well 2 rooms on the 3rd floor lot's of fun dragging the gear up the stairs. When the band buisness was slow I drove a school bus for Moncton Transit and met other musicos who also drove a bus. Sometimes after a heavy snowfall, I would clean the switches in the train yards at CNR that paid good too. One weekend when I wasn't working my girfiend left me our 8 month old daughter and went out, well the kid swallowed a piece of apple and started to choke I had to turn her upside down and tapped her back to dislodge the piece of apple.
