    Are you stoned? The whole State is 4-wheeling and dirt bikes and so on. Just have to get yer permit for off roading and you have the whole State to play in.

    If you plan to move to Oregon or Washington, look at the trans-system website. Plenty of year round freight and Western Regional or Northwestern Regional. 3 companies under one umbrella company. Have some terminals in California also. There's no personal state income tax in Washington.

    Navy vet-USS New Jersey (BB-62)/USS Vreeland (FF-1068)

    That smiley face is supposed to be an 8, but can't get it to go away.

    Redfin website is a good site to look for housing if you move; houses/condos/apartments for rent or sale.

    Thank you Chinatown Ill be sure to take a look. And thank you for your service as well. The Navy was a different place in your day. It must have been amazing being on a Battleship.. For all the advances the Navy has seen and the capabilities of the ships I served on. Nothing compares to the awesomeness of a Battleship.

    That old battleship was like a floating museum. They were obsolete after WWII in reality. The Navy realized that during Vietnam; they never could get the powder mix right for the 16" guns when they started remixing the older powder with the new powder. The Navy was fun before political correctness ruined it. I went AWOL once in Hong Kong for 3 days, but they couldn't do anything about it because we were with the XO & he said he gave us a direct order to stay with him in a hotel room full of booze and women. If that happened today, careers would be ruined and lots of brig time. The motto back then was, "when in a foreign port get stewed, screwed & tattooed." Those days are over!

    The XO was one of a kind; came up through the ranks from enlisted & had the Purple Heart.

    Hope I didn't seem crude, but that's just the way it was at that time. Even an E-3 could stay 20 years if he wanted to. The detailers in Washington dispatched them as Leading Seaman/Leading Fireman/Leading Airman, etc.

    Good memories of the Orient; that's where many of us now spend a lot of time.
