    I'm just getting done updating my application for the county and getting ready to put together a packet for faxing to a law enforcement agency.

    Why the application you ask? Because I got notified today that I'm getting promoted. BFD since it's only a couple of hundred $$$ more a month.........

    Of course I spent my lunch time today in the supervisor's office on the phone (personal cell) talking to a deputy 'back east' about their open positions.

    Ain't life grand, getting promoted by the job I'm trying to leave?

    Just for those keeping score. I like my job, it's about the best I've had since I got out of the Army. But the low pay, the a**hole city folk and who the heck in their right mind wants to stay in CA are all legitimate reasons to find a job somewhere else. And the funny thing is the job I'm applying for 'back east' pays just a tad less than what I'm getting now............

    But have you compared the cost of living differences? There are some cool online calulators that can help estimate the difference. You may find that tad bit less money actually goes alot farther and you end up with more left in your pocket at the end of the month. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Don't even have to. I know this place is a lot cheaper to live than here in CA. The only problem is going to be housing. With 4 dogs and needing a place with a garage and this town is WAAYYYYYYYY small, I'll probably be a bachelor for awhile until a house opens up, that's if I get the job.

    Of course I'm doing this while getting started on a winter build-up of the K5 /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Of COURSE! That's the way things are... You will prolly be asked to relocate just about the time you have the rear axle out of the truck and all opened up. I have been putting off my build up for the same reasons. Plus I need to get back up to the ranch for some more measurements and photos. So mine is sitting as-is for the time being...

    BTW, I just found out that if we put the bordello on one of the detached propertie and the bar and casino on the other, we will be ok with NV state law. Now I just gotta see if we can extend the runway by 1000 feet to accomodate the DC9...

    Good luck Bubba... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    That's why I'm stopping the build-up until I know more. Haven't even really started on it anyway. I've done some prep work to parts and have the rear-end that's going in torn down, but the truck is staying drivable until this is a go or no go.

    It's an SO. Don't want to give it out all at once and I've been dying to use this line for some time. This will tell ya where at.

    Now the state is a dead giveaway, but the exact location is in these lines also. Now it's not the words that are the hint so much as one of the characters in this scene. If you've seen Young Guns 2 a few times, it should be etched in your brain.

    But before the guessing begins, be careful because the first answer you think of "might" not be the right one..
