I'm 9 hours into a surveillance with no ending in sight.  Single man unmarked units so no one to even talk to.  ARFCOM on my smart phone is the only thing keeping me semi-sane.  Oh God let it end........

I wish.  $40 or $50 in taxpayer ones wouldn't be bad.

I see you, that smart phone is lighting up you face as you sit in the car.

Most miserable job, especially if you're in a semi-secure environment, middle class neighborhood, etc.

Are you in a surveillance unit that's cool, or sitting in a unmarked with dogdishes?

I'm on a dope team.  Lots of time to sit and think on surveillance.  I feel your pain brother.

Order up a pizza ala buck savage.  

Stay sharp

We're in 'cold' cars.  Late model lease vehicles.

We're in the same boat.  Problem is that we are on 'doper time'.  I swear it amazes me that they can get anything done.  The load was supposed to be here hours ago.....

Man I had no idea that phone was so bright.  It can be seen all the way to Illinois, holy crap!

I did it for 11 hours one day.  Luckily, I was in an RV, so I had a place to "go".  I feel for you, man!

Patience is a virtue - so sayeth the good book.  
All things come to those that wait - so sayeth the good book.

However - I recall the saying of my youth - God helps those who help themselves - ergo - get some when the shit goes down!

Stay safe and vigilent...

+1  Always have a wide mouth bottle with you. (Gatorade bottles work well!)

A few hours is one thing, try sitting in a hole covered with camouflage for a week.  Surveillance alone really bites though.

Don't take orange Gatorade with you. Too easy to mistake which bottle is for drinking and which is for, well, you know....
