  • TC To Chicagoland

    Looks like I will be running TC all over lake Michigan in the near future, I've taken a job in Lake Forest which is a bit north of Chicago. My wife and I spent this week scouting around I think I will probably land in SE Wisconsin, maybe find some property and build a house. An interesting time ahead.

        Yes it does seem I just did all of this. I spent a lot of time finishing the lower floor which is now a complete house on its own. It does hurt I am not ashamed to say. I absolutely love my house and the quite of the country, its everything I ever wanted. One idea running through my mind is to build this same house over again, leaving the lower floor undone and let me go at it again. We will see.

        Sandy is in a bit of shock as I am too, we have had lots of sleepless nights but this is the right move. There is a high probably the site I am now working in is going to be sold off next year so lots of things can happen there and not many of them are good.

            Your heading the wrong direction. You need to work remotely and live in Destin. That is where TC is meant to be. Best of luck to you and the family. Let me know if we can help in any way.

                That is an interesting move for sure. Its very nice 5 months out of the year...I can only imagine the turmoil your in trying to make a move at this stage.

                One thing I have learned since retiring...It doesnt cost as much to live, you eat way better and cheaper at home, your new boss who tells you what to do and when to do it.....Is the Weatherman.....LOL

                Good Luck..

                      That's going to require ALOT of cord wood [:0][B)]. There's probably still some left at the previous house.

                        Yeah its really cold up there, I looked at it last evening and it was 0 deg, I wonder what the wind chill is like?

                        The sad news is I just spent a few weeks cutting, splitting and stacking a huge oak that fell on my property so that it would be dry next winter, all for somebody else[]

                          I guess you have to take the good with the bad. The good being fresh water is much kinder to all the metal on your boat. The bad is a much shorter boating season...Charlie

                            Looks like your move was well received in Chicago and they've rolled out the welcome mat for your arrival.

                              Yeah yeah, I look at this multiple times a day. I will start getting tons of calls from the relo people next week as the holidays will be over. My first business trip for the new job will be to Germany at the end of Jan.
