they'll find my body on the Konrad-Adenaur-Strasse

2004-05-04

Can I follow the 22 step directions below on no sleep, in a foreign country and in under three hours?  Oh, have I mentioned that these are not door to door directions, because Map Quest has never heard of the address that I'm supposed to be at?  I'm thinking no.  I'm thinking that if I even attempted it, that either I or some innocent German would die.  So that means that I have to fly out on SATURDAY instead of Sunday.  And even a full night's sleep and 12 hours of free time does not guarantee that I will ever see the Kronach plant.

So I'll get in from the preceding week's audit on Friday night, spend one night at home, and leave for two weeks!  A year ago, I thought that 24 hour IT support and wearing a pager was the worst thing that my company could do to me.  Now that looks pretty good.

I do hate the whole "Americans are scared of foreigners and foreign countries" thing.  And here I go being afraid of the German highway system.  But I get freaked out about driving anywhere, so maybe its not so bad.
