Get in shape, lift some weights, study your state's vehicle and criminal codes. you will do fine as long as you have the correct attitude.
Yeah, getting my ass in better shape before I go is priority #1. I was an inspection mechanic at my last job, I was there nearly 6 years, so I have an extensive knowledge of vehicle laws because of doing inspections.

I am planning on heading to Florida to see my family this winter maybe. I may have to make it a short trip because of my new job I really don't know if I can get off work for a few days. If I do make it down he already told me we're going for a ride.
I am definitely staying up here though. I love where I live and have never been anywhere that would convince me to move. I love snow! Riding fourwheelers in the winter is one of my favorite things to do!
That's something that's already in my head. I don't know if I'd be happy doing it or not though. I'm not the world's biggest dog fan. I do like dogs, I just have had bad experiences with them.
