I have just taken a new job in Great Falls, Montana. A new state and new areas to explore.

I debated about bringing up where I was applying, as it is so early it really means nothing. But what the heck. Big Bear Lake sounds interesting, even though it is a tad to close to LA for me. I like the LA area in general, but driving there on a regular basis blows. I went through there just before I moved to Alaska. Big Bear Lake was in the general cruise parameters while I lived in Goodyear, AZ. I came down from Lucerne Valley on RT 18, and continued south on 38.
UK was all over it.
But the first road to hit, if I moved there, would be 247 from Yucca Valley to Barstow.
Big Bear is in a serious FIRE HAZARD area. They get nice snow there, but there are opportunities to head south, as in DOWN in elevation, to escape if needed. Palm Springs is an area in which I have played a little golf. But there is a LOT more to check out!
Meanwhile I have just applied for positions in Lihue, Hawaii, Lincoln, Nebraska, and LA!!
Lihue, probably not qualified. Lincoln, definitely qualified. Wished it was a bit more west. LA? I thought I would NEVER apply there, but money is a funny thing. And I am qualified.
Hey Dave, good luck on that diet.
Finally, word from Idaho is not good. CYBERSUZE took a tumble while mountain biking outside of Boise. She broke her hip, but did not know that for sure for some time. She rode back to town, most of the trip being downhill. LUCKY. She was with her husband. They went to an emergency room in town. She was told it was broken and should see a specialist Monday. Meanwhile she is using a walker to bumble around.
The folks have a big anniversary in a few weeks, and Cyber needs to be in Kentucky. It is a rare occasion we all get together, the six of us KENTUCKYS. It will all be good.
