    Ah, you're a power plant guy. I was in General Construction and traveled around the state working on tower lines, 230kv pole lines, and substations. Even did a little work at a hydro plant once. It used to be a great company, don't know what it's like now. Been away for 9 years. Happy Hunting - and don't get fried!!! LOL

    I used to work for DOD in San Diego.

    I saw the sutro baths on a PBS TV show with Huell Howser.
