I hated traveling for work and not getting paid for being stuck out of town on my free time so I found things to study and learned about crap that would get me a job not spending time in hotels.

I do a good deal of cooking, its cheaper than going out to eat and you get more variety. the town I am in now has 450 people living in it, the whole county has 1400.

If you are in an area for a while, make some friends and hang out. I go to local forums for hobbies I have and meet people.
That sucks. per diem puts about 1000 tax free dollars a week in my pocket. i would never accept an expense account.

I'm in Chicago for the week. I will probably go get beer and sit in my hotel room the entire time and not go anywhere. Too afraid of getting lost and being stabbed in the face.

I do have to say that it sucks when you go someplace for work and have Zero time to do something you enjoy. Nothing like spending a week in Florida or Cali and never getting out on your own.

When we were in San Antonio we used to hit the go kart tracks. Galveston was always a good party town on weekends when I lived in Houston.

I just got back from Orange County today. Spent 5 days there and the only area I saw was the hotel, the hotel lobby, the hotel pool area, and a little strip mall across the street. I go to Spokane on Friday.
