    thanks for replying. i am glad to hear you are getting great pay and you love it out there! i am with american mobile and was told by my recruiter not to expect anything more than 28 per hour in NM. i am going to work at presbyterian in alb doing med surg. i dont have tele skills or acls but i do get along well with my co-workers, have a good attitude, show up to work on time every time ready to work. i say a little prayer every morning asking God to help me be part of the solution and NOT part of the problem!
    anyway, so glad you are liking your assignment. i cant wait to get out there and do some hiking in the sandia's and some powdery skiing up at taos. suzanne
    Try Wolf Creek! It's just over the border (<4hrs away). More snow than anywhere in Colorado, and we just rented a huge 3 bedroom house for $100 per day ($33 each after we split the cost!). Also, the Pagosa Springs are up there and you can soak after a long ski day!

    Let me know if you need details.
