... to my post of Jan. 9.
Because MrsZ wanted to tell some people in person, I haven't made anything publicly official yet... but she's telling them now, so here it is
We're leaving NY.
It's not just about guns; it's about taxes, opportunity, open space, and nanny-state crap. The latest legislation should tell you all there's a problem: closed-door discussion, no public discussion period, and criminilization of gun owners everywhere. This isn't about any one thing; it's time for us to leave a diseased state.
We started making serious moves in this direction the day after Cuomo said, "Confiscation is an option."
We'll be putting our house on the market in the next few months. We've started applying for jobs in many places, and will likely go to wherever one of us finds a job that can pay the bills. Salt Lake City is a strong option, but nothing is set in stone yet.
If you're in a free state and see something that might tweak our interest, please let us know (zercool/gmail). I've got 8 years of 911 dispatch and 5 years of tech support prior to that; MrsZ has an Ivy League degree in Animal Science and five years of DNA lab experience. There's more, obviously, but that's the high points.
Wish us luck, and good thoughts/prayers won't be turned down.
Let the adventure begin!
