    Wish you the best.

    Socal is Over Rated anyways and I'm sure in NV. You'll be saving much more in cash.

    You have each other and still have your truck.

    If you miss Socal enough, you can always come back.

    I hate companies that do that to long term employees. I've seen my company downsize people that way or better yet, fire them for anything. Watched a long term 33 year employee get fired for nothing and what happens to her Retirement? Sigh.

    I wish you the best.

    I know for a fact there are places in Mississippi that are still like that. The only way to watch tv is satellite and the only interent is dial up, and that was only recently that that happened.

    The So Cal crew is gonna miss you. You were the first person I met from TW and most definitely represented So Cal as a leader, organizer, shit-giver, and someone that was always willing to lend a hand on a install or repair. I am sure the Nevada guys will have no problem jumping you in! You already lived in the sticks so not much of a change. Good luck to you and your family!!!
