Okeedokee, that's about where we are for a similar shop. One thing won't get dramatically more expensive when we move!

Did Jen have a choice in the PCS?  I think things have gotten worse over here since you left. Don't get me wrong now, it would be nice to see your smiling faces again  but the island has been going downhill, like most places I suppose though.........

Not really a choice, no. I was hopeful for Monterey, but it wasn't on the table. She applied for two places - Hawaii and Whidbey Island, WA - and obviously got Hawaii.

What's been getting worse (or is it everything  cheeky?)  I certainly had some reservations about going back. It's a big move. We don't know exactly where she'll be working, so we can't begin to estimate where to try to live. Cost of living is, obviously, atrocious, and salaries aren't really commensurate. Jen is cushioned somewhat by her military-ness, but only relative to her current pay. I'm a bit up in the air for work still.

Other than that, it all sounds perfect!

The new Cycle World .........  a mix of the old and Motorcyclist ...... nothing like it ever from the American press  ...... awesome ! !   Count me in as a subscriber ! !   waytogo   waytogo  waytogo

Got the December issue of Cycle World recently and sat down last night to read it. You know, the Sat. eve, beer, smoke, blues-rock & motorcycle race / movie night in the garage. Have been meaning to send my check and the business reply mail subscription renewal thing into Cycle World.  DAMN ! ! !   Angry  Sad  Angry  Sad   Wouldn't you know it ? ?  Now they are gone from print too.  Read that mag from cover to cover like the precious thing that it is.  Such an old time luddite I am.  I think it is a seminal moment in motorcycle publishing. Digital will never be the same.    Cry  Cry
