Aha of course you decide to go to the dreaded New Mexico. Go to Blakes Lottaburger, surprisingly good regional fast food.

They were pretty easy to deal with and the temporary lasts a while. Testing in Santa Fe and Roswell I believe.

Sent the money order today so hopefully I'll have the temporary license within a week. Just gotta study their SOP and hopefully I'll be good to go.

I picked up a shift in El Paso, TX, and then I drove into New Mexico to get fingerprinted. I am very stubborn and don't like trying to new things like snail mailing fingerprints. It's either electronic or not at all! Haha, just kidding... I want some licenses in states like Missouri, but I am dragging butt on it because I don't want to figure out fingerprinting by card and snail mailing it. XD I really really really hate that I can't just go to my local fingerprint shop and just get it done electronically. I was able to do Colorado and Texas via California, but it won't let me do things like Missouri or New Mexico. I had 3 days total off in El Paso so I figured I'd just make a short trip one of those days.

What, are you collecting the complete set of paramedic licenses? Lol.

My company pays for everything. Like when I get this New Mexico license, I can pick-up shifts there. They'll pay for my Uber, rental, flight, hotel, gas, and $50/day for food between shifts. When I leave my house to go to the airport, I clock in. When I get to the hotel, I clock out. These shifts I pickup are overtime on top of it. Sometimes they pay decent bonuses like $250-$1,000 to pick-up these shifts. I love traveling and exploring. I have no significant other or kids. More licenses means more bonuses, overtime, and travel for me. It's a no brainer for me. :]

Wow who do you work for? I am off 5 days a week, and I can trade shifts; so I can work Sunday Monday, week 1, and Friday Saturday week 2, and have 10 days off and use no leave to do it.
Even though I am married I am bored, and my wife doesn't mind when I leave. LOL
