    Well, two ER calls today. Both receiving facilities *****ed my partner and I out about not diverting to a more appropriate facility.... ie, Doctors being lazy and not wanting to deal with what their being paid to do.

    24 hour shift we can sleep on. Any suggestions for passing time? NV- good man, way to get the stress out. As far as the 7 person transport. I saw 6 the most at one time. There was a 4 man crew for training, the PT and a family member. Looked like a clown car lol.

    SoCal people, how you dooin'?

    It's a bit chilly, round 35 at night for the last week or so. Personally I like cold weather in Cali, we dont get much for a change of seasons so the cold windy weather reminds me of the Christmas time we never really get. Trust me 70-80 and sunny does get old after a while..... say 22 years
