    Pretty much, and I think they've interviewed everybody out West at least once. Hell, I interviewed out there.

    It's nice, but Brookings is the SW corner of Oregon -- two hours to Grants Pass (closest "city"/I-5 onramp); four hours to Mt. Shasta, and almost five hours to Redding or Shasta Lake.

    It may be pretty on the coast/101, but it's also pretty isolated.

    I wonder if somebody backed out, or they froze the position for a spell, because I know this has been posted recently. The pay isn't bad, and if you could work your way to Bend, that wouldn't be a bad thing.

    I did some camping and hiking in that region last summer. Beautiful. Isolated (which is a good thing, as far as I'm concerned), but beautiful.

    The twice-weekly may have offered more money and better bennies than the daily.
