  1. Checked into that first. Yuba City is the lowest COL I've seen in CA. Apartments not much more than TXK. And, absolutely, we'll get together. Dave
  2. Thanks, Travis. Yes, pretty awesome...especially the work. However, I intend to keep my hat in the ring closer to home. Much to like about CA, but it might as well be overseas from here. Dave
  3. Thanks, Jeff. I am excited, but will continue to look for something as lucrative closer to home. CA is very nice, but just too far away. Dave
  4. You will always be welcome in my home, my friend. Still have many unfinished discussions. Dave
  5. As posted in Announcements, Pilgrimage 2020 planning is underway and an agenda will be posted soon. As Roy posted in Announcements, it will remain Forum driven and procedures instituted to elect a new committee member for next year and into the future so no one gets run down and to ensure continued Forum leadership. Christy is drawing up procedures and such to pass on to the new members which will simplify carrying on. New event locations in Hope will be used, but the old ones will remain as well. Stay tuned! Dave
  6. Secret only. No drug test required. Wouldn't matter as I've had none in years. Dave
  7. Thanks all. I rather doubt anything will throw up a red flag in my background. It's only secret, and I had that in the Army. Dave
  8. No question, Elden. Military drones are very cool indeed. Dave
  9. Should be fun, Elden. I'll keep my hat in the ring for positions closer to home. Easier to get a job when you have one. Dave
  10. I knew that...but just like you I couldn't resist. Dave
  11. In my case, all pay and no work. 😂 Actually, they will get more from me than the average government employee...but I've been told my only function is to oversee contractors and see that they do their jobs. Not much work there... Dave
  12. Well, to answer both your questions, you are welcome to come visit for as long as you like. Much to see and do nearby...and legal weed besides if your tastes run that way. As to the house, I will keep it for a while in case my son decides to go to school here, in which case he will rent it. Dave
  13. Yes, it's very close. Dave
  14. Well, looks like Dave is off to California for a few years. I'll be managing development of training materials and simulators for Global Hawk and other recon drones at Beale AFB. Decided to do this because I need the money to get my building here renovated both as a residence and as a Listening and Performance Center. Every reason to believe the note will be paid by renting out the hall for recitals and other music performances. Hate to leave home, but Feds are some of the few who actually practice what they preach about discrimination. Besides, I love my work and the Federal benefits are superb. Plus, as the Chinese say, the job is an "iron rice bowl." Don't have a start date yet as they are working on the background investigation, all 37(!) pages of it. Damn long way out there, but I hope to get a Tesla S3 while there to assure my ability to get around in the future, as well as being able to let it do the driving when I drive home. Dave
  15. Knowing the Patrician for the classic it is, get those pix up and you are likely to find some interest here. Dave
