UPS 30 (heavy)

Yesterday (4/3/2009) was my 30th anniversary as an employee of UPS.

Still looking for steady work, though...  :)

Speaking of UPS, etc., the Mt. Redoubt eruption in Alaska has caused problems at the Anchorage airport and thus, some of UPS's planes coming from Asia have been diverted to PDX. I've found a cool site ( that lets you listen to air traffic control in various cities, including Portland. It's fun to hear a 747 coming in, contacting the Portland Tower, "UPS 68 Heavy, clear for landing on runway 28 Left."
