We made it, after a bit of a delay (the bus sort of froze up near the Kansas-Missouri border) and are settled in. As for the Inner Prop, his supervisory chain had a sudden emergency at the top - so everyone got bumped up a spot. While I was tossing and turning and getting a couple of hours, the Prop already started working. This, mind you, just before our 2AM-2PM shift begins. Throw in some transit time, overlap for shift change and...well, you see what I mean.
More to come, if it warrants mention.
"Hey 'Prop. C'mon, it's time for our shift!"
