The Drifter, a work in progress
The Drifter

          My name is Herman N Pike. I'm 28 years old in 1988. I just lost my job at the Dane County Regional airport in Madison, Wisconsin. I've been working here for the last 7 1/2 years.
I need help.
I'm trying to decide where to go next. I have several choices, but I'm unsure which is best. I could go to:
1. Lansing, Michigan
2. Minneapolis- St. Paul, Minnesota
3. Tulsa, Oklahoma, where I was trained.
4. stay in Madison in the vain hope that something will turn up within 50 miles of here
5. or you could suggest a place.

Finding work as an aircraft mechanic isn't easy in the best of times
And these aren't the best of times.
