Sand, tumbleweeds and sports in Bishop, Calif.

Discussion in 'Journalism Jobs' started by big green wahoo, Mar 20, 2008.

  1. From JJobs. I used to cover preps in the Antelope Valley up by Edwards Air Force Base and teams from Bishop would come chugging over in their buses after rides that seemingly went on for hours. I would have to imagine if you take this job, you'll have an appreciation for how the Jawas lived on Tattooine (sp?), but correct me if I'm wrong.

    I will correct you -- partially.

    You apparently didn't get out of the AV to cover stuff north of Mojave, because if you had, you'd realize that Bishop isn't as much desert and sand as it is hills, partial-forest and valley.

    Yes, the Bishop teams had one hell of a schlep to the AV, where -- because of their school size (it is roughly twice the size of most of the other teams in the league) -- they'd usually pound the crap out of the AV teams in football and be ubercompetitive in virtually everything else.

    Exactly. Bishop actually isn't too bad, though it is quite remote. And you can be in Tahoe in about four hours ... and 15 minutes.

    Bishop is pretty sweet actually, Lone Pine is nearby, the Sierras are right freaking there, Vegas isn't too far away either.

    Not just Chamber-speak: Great hiking, biking and fishing in the area. Two of the 14ers I climbed are within an hour of Bishop. Reno-Tahoe is an easy drive too. The job? Preps seem to do well in their classifications. Outdoors, of course. The pay won't be much, but for California the cost of living won't be that much either.
