Yep on the ups and downs. I was 150 for forever and then was kinda a truck ass with the partnership went to 189 then put bags back on and within a year I was back to 150 but since the storm and this mess I went to 141 from stress. Hoping I fit back into my clothes again. I was like wtf all my nice stuff looks like itís falling off me. Had to buy a new black polo today that fit me for tomorrow. Haha

No more reality. It sucks. I'm sick of adulting. It's a drag.

You're gonna wanna take a long hard look though. Lots of logistics to go through.
this sorts south western/centralish oregon, medford/grants pass is pretty awesome.

definitely 4 seasons all mild.

few weeks of 100+ in the summers.

decent amount of rain, snow sort of, more like heavy frost to me...

booming area, great restaurants, shopping, first class medical....

GREAT fishing & hunting....

Reasonably low property tax rate too? I know Jordan Valley is really low, but there is a reason we pass thru.

North Eastern Oregon is reasonable too, with lots of hunting and fishing, in actual MOUNTAINS Middle of nowhere though


For a builder Cali had firestorms that destroyed over 5,000 homes that need to be rebuilt too. Just as much damage as a hurricane in a different form.

Wow! That's awesome! I'm afraid California is a little too far to the extreme for me. I think 40-100k population is limit for my country behind. I'm terrified of California. Can't even visit. I don't know how you guys can handle it!
But thanks for the honor of the offer.

I'm sure it's awesome. I love those area's to visit. I just couldn't see a raised up Florida boy making it out that far west. Who knows though.

Kinda depends on what kinda Florida he grew up in.

When I'm rich from all my construction work I'd love to get a chunk of dirt outside Jacksonville or Murphy.

Cool spot over there.


But then I'd need another one in Northern Idaho.

Then I'd be set.

Mild winters, warm, dry summers away from the coast, 60 degree days on the coast in summer, snow 30 minutes away if you want it, more water than we know what to do with, timber for miles, great farmland, no real natural disasters, (few earthquakes), rugged, remote.

You'd hate it.
You're hiding something. The question is -what?

Re: If You Could Move Where Would You Go?


I think it's easy to get burned out in this business, I am for sure

I'd go somewhere warm, northern az, new mexico, southern colorado, we just got a foot of snow last night. Yum.

Also, I'd get out of the trades if I moved become a janitor or a maintenance guy, punch the clock and go home every day, sounds awesome

As far as moving to colorado, it's great, but talk about high cost of living, wages are there if you can find them and demand them, but it's hard, I really think I should pay my guys at least 5 bucks more an hr each, but that's hard to do. If your not living on the front range/denver area expect to drive fifty miles and an hr each way for work unless you can suck up the cost of housing where you'll end up working.
