    we were en route from a seismic survey in El Centro headed for Tonopah or something. Twenty five of us, mostly under 30 years old with petro per diem in our pockets. I think I was the only one that didn't gamble and the only one that didn't lose every penny they had. General manager had to give advances so people could eat until payday.

    Wife lost a quarter once in Central City. Just played one game.
