Retiring And Contractor Talk


My wife is yearning for retirement. Keeps bringing it up. Wants me to build a house in Idaho for us. Quick question. Will I be able to come around this place anymore or will you guys kick me to the curb? Don't answer that stg. I know what you'll want!

Oh and can I change my CT name? I want Cali completely out of it.


Mike.

I don't think there's a problem but you'll be switched to "hack" status.

WTF?!

No way could anyone kick you out. Youre a severe pain in the ass but a knowledgeable one at least. Hell they didn't even kick me out for my year of being a desk jockey.

Sure. How about Poser?

Seriously, you probably already know that Cricket can hook you up with a name change. And we've never shunned anyone for retiring.

But... Idaho?

I don't want to give away all my secrets, but to defend Mike's wife...

Idaho is secretly the most beautiful state in America.

Boise isn't bad though. Not to many places if any are going to give me OC weather. But I refuse to stay in this state.

I can build a pretty nice custom for what I sell here for.

On a good chunk of land as well.

Make sure you take a trip down the Selway river....absolutely breathtaking as is the Salmon (river of no return).

If you like to hunt and fish Idaho is awsome...but beware you are on the west side of the divide. It rains a lot. I spent a week in the camper outside Irwin, it rained for a solid week
