As far as climate, Las Vegas is very agreeable. Does it get hot? You Bet! Does it get cold? Yes it does. It's not exactly as moderate as Southern California, which is ideal, but it's livable.

It's also where Paul should be, now that he's approaching senior citizen status. However, politics rears it's ugly head, so he must put up with the chilly winters in Ashfork. Or, Gold Canyon's nice, I hear?

Good hunting. El Bee

You know, to each his own.

I despise Las Vegas, personally.

My baby sister has lived there for 20 years now. Which is why I visit the place two or three times a year. She's stuck, by a divorce/joint custody situation. She hates the place too though and would move out of there in a heartbeat if she could take her kids away from her ex.

Things I don't like about it. Crowded, two million people. Filthy - outside the main tourist areas just trash in the streets everywhere. Crime - my sis live in a "nice" neighborhood in Henderson and every house has bars on all the windows and security doors and shit locked down like bands of roving thieves are coming through every night - which they ARE. She even suffered through an attempted home invasion, they picked the wrong little girl for that though... Traffic, it's nasty, by my standards anyway and people visiting from other places tell me the traffic here where I live is bad. Drunk drivers everywhere, all the time, empty liquor bottles on the sides of the roads - car insurance rates there are astronomical. Etc.

It would take a lot to get me to live there. That's just me though.

Well, you know a hell of a lot more than I do. I was just speaking to the climate part. I visited a relative of my wife, in Henderson, and this part of town was definitely upscale so that's all I know, a gated community.

Other than that, all I know is downtown and I only stay in 5 star properties.

Boy, there must be quite a story there, home invasion with the wrong girl!

I have to say, females with guns or while hunting is actual porn, for me. Nothing interests me more than a good looking chick pursuing the shooting sports. We need a lot more of it because the usual portrayal is that guns are icky and masculine.It's too bad the way the Media beats up on females posing with game, such as recently in Africa with a giraffe and in Scotland with goats. Too much judgmental opinions.

Good hunting. El Bee

I appreciate the input. Kinda what I figured. My daughter must live on the right side of town. I thought it was nice ?

Traffic yeah might be a problem, nothing like around here.

If, I do it. I need to live & work in the same part of town. Nothing permanent maybe a year test drive ? I've lived around here almost four decades now. My daughter along with my grandson seem hell bent on staying there @ least a couple of years.

My work has really changed lately. I might need something different ? Hell, I made a call to a guy yesterday & basically got hired if I want the job.

I miss my family something terrible.

Dave I hope you figure it out. I also see a lot of change in the works, not sure its all good either.

Every week someone I know or know of, is moving out of Kalifornia. All motivated by politics and our new governor that IS going to change this state into even more of a shithole....and Im going to pay for it all. I sit here and stew about it every day...I see the crime, the shitty people, and the money thats being taken from me, and Im just pissy about it every day.

I crave peace and quiet...and I am always eyeballing places that have it, out of state. My wife doesnt like what I like, and thats a problem, plus..we just arent in a position to just get something somewhere and call it good, have to have income. Same as most I suspect. Im trying to come up with a plan, been a little serious about it lately too....so I feel ya...at this point I would have to reinvent myself and do something out of the box perhaps...dont know....maybe Ill do nothing...but hell, I may be forced to at some point.
Its clear to me though...things are a changin'.

Yes, ok. But keep in mind that with social media, TV and everything else, the culture is amazingly homogenous. What that means to me is that society, the current rotting core is mainly like a malignant growth coming out of Kalifornia and affecting your favorite state, little by little. It's quite commonly observed that these assholes pull out of Kalifornia and immediately set up Kalifornia rules where ever they buy into. They work their little fanny's off changing paradise into something like they left behind in The People's Republik. I've seen people, in videos and on TV in Ohio and Alabama and they sure as hell look and act just like people on the street in Hollywood and South San Francisco. Blame TV, the Internet, FaceBook and Twitter. Have you noticed that nobody has a regional dialect or accent any more?

Well, pretty soon the whole damned country will be acting just as stupid as Nancy Pelosi. And voting for Kamala Harris for President. (I hope you threw up a little in your mouth over that comment)

As far as that goes, it's a fucking BEAUTY CONTEST! Vote for Beto, Vote for Pedro, Vote for Ocasio-Cortez! Vote for Michelle Obama/gag! You don't need any "qualifications" to be President any more. There are at least a half a dozen moderately hot chicks in congress forming exploratory committees. I'm seriously considering it, myself; just another pretty face, but who knows?

Excuse the rambling. I'm done!

Good hunting. El Bee

edit: Or, more likely, I'll buy some nice little property just outside Safford and POST IT, just like every other Kalifornia Fuck does.

I worked in Lost Wages for just a few too many years and it was a shithole then and the traffic was a nightmare for me. The insurance quadrupled from where I was from,Ely area. The wife made us move back up north to, at the time, Gods country but Vegas and Reno are just suburbs of Commifornia and the socialist mentality.It is like a pandemic this mind set those brainwashed assholes have.
Got rid of the place up by Ely and the daughter got a nice place in Tennessee with acreage and two homes for what a lot with a piece of garbage home costs out west. Cheaper actually. The demographics are amazing and very conservative, to say the least. As an example, the landscapers are all white people. When have you seen that for the past 20 years.
I thought the movie "Wagons East" was funny but then when I saw "Idiocracy" I thought the same. Now I am a believer that both of those were not comedies but documentaries. Also I might add that the weather here is a bit on the muggy side in summer but it is the middle of January now and as I check the outside temp it is a chilly 48 degrees. Had to put on a cotton long sleeved shirt to go out calling, with no luck I might add, this morning. I feel for you that are stuck in the Workers Socialist Paradise. But, so goes life.

Yes, one of my co workers is retiring this June. He is originally from TN and his 2 older daughters have gravitated to NC..both teachers.., so he is selling out and moving back to TN or NC one or the other. They love it back there. My old boss sold out back around 2004-ish when home prices were real high. He couldnt move back if he wanted to, but he dont want to.

I’ve got about 8 more years until i can retire that will give me 38 years there. That’s enough. Then I’m the hell out of this (Salt Lake) Valley for sure. It’s getting bigger and bigger every year. And a lot of the growth is California people coming in and bringing there bullshit politics with them. I don’t even recognize this valley anymore. I have a nice 1 acre piece of property in a small Central Utah town just waiting for me to start building a house on. Hope to get top dollar for my current house with all this growth plus it will be paid off by then too. Probably will start building in about 7 years so it will be done as soon as I retire.

12 more years for me and I'm outta here too.

Got a house with a good well and 20 acres of sagebrush between Caliente and Pioche. Wife is even gradually warming up to the idea.

Long way from now till then and no predicting the future. We'll see.

Yes, well. Maybe you guys know my story and maybe you don't? Just saying; sometimes these long range plans, "12 years from now" etc. they have a way of "changing" unexpectedly.

I used to wonder about all the options, real estate property values, even the tempting differences between applying for social security at various mileposts, I even added it up, in fact.

But, for me, it was something my employer thought they expected of me and just like that, I came home that afternoon and told Nanc, I quit! They don't know it yet and wouldn't know it for six more months but I just said, I gotta do it, and even though she was seriously concerned, she supported me. And, boy did I fuck over them, thinking I'd be back in that six months, a leave of absence. So, I actually and secretly retired in June, on my pension, and was vested, but I didn't turn 62 until September 1. I was able to retroactive my retirement three months before, a loophole that was coinciding with my medical insurance. It was complicated, but fell in place beautifully.

That was 14.5 years ago and I can't say that I have regretted it ever, and "they" didn't know what hit them. I'm not saying I was the "indispensable man" but oh my god, did I piss off a bunch of people, people that thought they had me boxed into something. So, I just ran off half cocked and got lucky, stupid lucky and I admit being smug about it. They fucked with the wrong asshole, there was a little drama and yes, I'm still peeved about it, but I don't mind retirement at all. I was already burned out.

I can't be any more specific, but even when Nanc died, I shouldn't have been covered and even though I had left the company two years previous, they covered it because they still carried me as an employee, all the while thinking I was going to come back to work, still thinking they had me boxed in, like I didn't have a choice. That $200k worth of her hospital bills were covered, it felt like a friggin! miracle, even though I lost the best friend I ever had and ever will have.

So, yeah, it was sudden and unexpected and I might be better off if I had not had that little temper tantrum, but I don't regret it because I did beat the bastards. Just be careful about all that calculated planning. I'm sure Bezos never thought he would get caught with his pants down and lose, what the hell is it, half of 140 billion dollars! You just never know what the future holds.

I have heard several people say, with conviction; Oh I'll never be able to retire! Maybe not but to me it sounds wretched. Never retire? Just one day, you don't call in because you're dead, and that won't look good in your file now, would it? So, go ahead and plan ahead. Maybe it will work out just like you planned it, in 12 years or so?

Good luck and good hunting, when you get a chance!

Ain’t that the truth. Can’t believe I have worked at the same job for 30 years. Seems like I just started looking back but it also seems like a long time. Lol

Speaking of being semi retired, I really can’t complain to much I only work 3 days a week(13 hrs days) so I usually have a 4 day weekend. Unless I’m working some Overtime.

Caliente & Pioche ? I went thru there a few weeks ago. Around 4am My wife sound asleep. I'm not sure how she could sleep ? with me behind the wheel ? We were trying to get ahead of a storm.

Didn't work out snow packed roads for quite awhile.

I would guess it to be pretty good country ? I would have to check my map. I felt like it was high elevation ?

It didn't take long to get to Conner's pass. I believe it was called. Elevation 7722'

I thought I had it all set up to retire, had work 16 yrs at a power plant left there and bought a tire shop. Well after 20 yrs in the tire shop some young guy came in with a banker and said he would like to buy the shop. I sold that suckers before he changed his mind.
Well I was 59 when I sold to early to retire but I was coming up to have my knee replaced, so I thought I would get the knee done then see what would happen. About a year into my little plan my daughter come back from college and tells us that she's going to get her masters, didn't see that one coming.
Two and a half years latter and a big chunk of my little nest egg gone. The wife says I need to get part time job four 5 more years to make up some of the money that the daughter took for school.
So here I'm am, maintaince man for 38 hud homes for the next 4 yrs. Then we're going to load up the camper take the dogs back to my daughters place because they were hers anyway and head north where every the road takes us.
Now this might sound like a plan, but for me it's a dream. Right now we have 5 grandkids from the 2 oldest boys, still got one more boy and the daughter to go. It's birthdays, ball games, horse shows, pig show and just about anything else you can think of.
Wouldn't take anything in the world for my family, so you guess it, I ain't going no where in 4 yrs but to what every function the kids got going on at that time.
So to all you guys that got a plan I hope it's works out!
GOOD LUCK ON THAT!!!

Dave A, the grass isn't greener on the other side.
Get use to driving down to see them.
You couldn't get me to even drive through L.V anymore.
I'd take a 500 mile detour.
HEAT! You think the valley is hot.
No I don't have kids so don't know or understand this thing that grandkids take over your life.
Hell you can fly down and back cheaper than you can drive it.

After this summer I'm retiring. More or less 40 seasons on a mountain top. Most people think I'm crazy.

But here is the thing. Neighbor at the other place. She was the soul bread winner. Worked everyday she was 62. She got sick this winter was on antibiotics. Getting sicker by the time the husband finally convinced her to go to the hospital it was too late. She passed away.
I want to at least have some summers off to go enjoy life. Might be tough here for a few years. Might have to find a summer part time job up here. But at least I'll be sleeping in one bed not 3 different beds in a weeks time.

We found a good place here. The trapping/calling sucks big time because every other guy is trapping and screwing up the coyotes or you have guys calling that shouldn't be let out of the city limits. 98% of the trappers only want to trap cats. But they are still screwing with the coyotes. It's been a huge learning experience up here. It's a interesting challenging hair pulling experience full of frustrations. But it isn't boring.

I do appreciate everyone's opinion or I wouldn't post asking for one [Big Grin]

The problem is when someone is your heart & soul my daughter. Is just that. We are so much alike it would crack y'all up !!

I have no need need to follow her around. Except I love her more than anything. I was pissed when she moved to Houston about a year & a half ago. Then to the Vegas area last summer.

I kinda get it though. Two winters ago was really rough. Helped run her out. She will go somewhere more suitable for me @ least ? some day.

I think I did mention it was likely a year deal for me to move. We fucking plan & plan..Yeah-fucking yeah. We ain't living for fucking ever !!
I guess when everything is just right & my grandson might be ten. Trust me I'm taking all kinds of shit !!
It will all be Ok then ?

Thank you all. I'll ponder probably another month or so ?
