    Well, guys the inevitable has happened. I'm being laid off this Friday after 20 years doing the same job. It is not an easy thing to go through. But I'm saying goodbye as Chelsie has gotten a job offer at the Casino 10 mins from her dads house. So we are moving up to northern Nevada 30 mins south of Lake Tahoe to a small town near Wellington NV. called Topaz Ranch Estates. We will stay with her dad till we can find a place to buy. I just wanted to say bye to everyone and thank you all for friendship and all the help you ever lender me with my truck or anyone else's. I'm gonna miss all you especially the close nit little offroad family we have become. It has been a pleasure knowing you all. Hopefully we will see you all here and there when we come to visit family. Once again thank you all for everything you have ever done for me or my family. It's been awesome being a part of this SOCAL Tacoma Crew. You guys are the best. :(

I remember around this time last year I went on my first trip ever with you guys in the mojavi.. Had a freaking blast. Thank you for the hospitiality you and your family has showed me through-out all these years. Even though we will still be in touch. :D

    And hit up Jberry. I think he is somewhere around that area..

    This sucks, man... It's getting harder and harder to deal with as it gets closer to that date, Mat... Wish I had the gas money to help you move. I wanna see this "Nevada" you speak of.

    So it finally happened. Is was something talked about. Not something that was actually gonna happen. I wish you luck and you all of us will miss the reckless crazy fuck that beats the shit out of his truck in the name of froadin. Better mosey your way back for superstition. Your already on that list. No going back.

    You say that like you're moving real far away, Vegas is just around the corner! I was just there a couple of weeks ago checkin out family member's new house and chillin at Lake Mead. Cost $83K there where something similar would probably cost $250K here, it's ridiculous. Good luck with the move.
