    Just signed the papers on a 6 bedroom house in Erie PA. Moving down will be a process over the next few months, (on weekends) that will be finished at the end of the school year.

    To the rest who will stay behind and continue to fight:

    I still have folks I care about here, and remember that I am still in your corner. I had to make this call for my wife and daughter as well as myself. There is no future for us here. You, and your freedoms, are in our thought and prayers. Don't give up, and keep up the good fight.

    C'mon down Yankees; we got room for all but the bloomerburgers. ;)



    edit* We have room for the bloomerburgers too, but the accommodations are not so nice for them. ;)

    (Thinking to self) What am I? I was born in Komiefornia, have lived in most of the Continental 48 (31 different states), spent 9 of my youthful years in the South, and I have spent 20+ years in the REAL NY. (Out here, redneck is a way of life, and there are more trucks than cars ;)) Where exactly do I fall in the scale of geographical nick names? :confused:

    If I guessed for myself, I would say ..........

    Proud 2A supporting, Hunting, Fishing, Truck owning, Dog owning, Off- roading, Troop supporting, American! :D

    Thanks 'Gello.

    Welcome to Penn's Woods.:)

    You're gonna like it here.

    OC is legal statewide and after you've attained PA citizenship, take your filled out form, and $20.00 to your county sheriff, get your pic taken and wait about 60 days for your CCW.

    Here's your site to find the CCW form and instructions: www.eriecountygov.org/sheriff

    And I don't buy guns in bunches but I've never even been "delayed" on insta-check.

    If I HAD to move, PA would be on the top of my list. So many cool things in that state. I love to go there on VACA.

    Thanks guys.

    Except for handguns (which have to be added to you posession permit in NY prior to pick up) I have never waited more than about 2 minutes for my background check to go through. Can't say I've always been good, but I made d@mn sure I was good at it! ;)

    I already have my Non Resident CCW, which will expire next January. Once my residency requirement is met, the wife and I both will go in and get our resident CCWs. Thanks for the link. It is now on the book marks bar.

    Yep. The only way I could be happier about it is if the first load leaving was the last, but I did promise the wife that we would stay up here during the week until the end of the school year. it's only fair to her and the daughter, and it will give us time to put cash aside to float us through the job search once we are settled in to the new place. Since I am on disability, I can do some of the packing while they are at the school during the day, get things ready to go, load up the truck on Thursday, and then we can shoot down from Friday night to Sunday afternoon at that point. Move in a little at a time each weekend, and not get stressed out trying to find things and rushing the set up when we get there. Just a little easier that way.

    2680 sq. Feet. It is in town, but it's in a decent area of Millcreek Township. We are splitting it with my adopted sister and her 3 kids, so we needed a good sized house. Works out well for both of us. Her boyfriend is a regional truck driver, she is a stay at home mom with 2 sons (9 and 2) and a daughter (7), so me being home with her and the kids will help her out. It's 2 blocks from their school, and my wife put in an application for a cafeteria opening starting in September. The high school is close enough for our daughter to walk on good days, and there are shopping centers within 10 blocks of the house so she should be able to find work to save up for a car and for college (she's starting her senior year in September. (What ever happened to the 5 year old I met when her mom and I started dating?!) Big fenced in yard for the dog, and a spot for a garden, It'll do for now.

    It's not out in the country, but it fit the rest of our needs, so we'll take it. The most important thing was that it is west of the NY state line. That alone makes me happy.

    I agree. We have been looking in PA and Ohio since back in the summer, and in those journeys I had seen some of the historical sites in both states. Next summer, we are planing a family weekend in Gettysburg. Looking forward to it as i have lived on the east coast for over 30 years, and have never been there. My sister's boyfriend and I went to look at a house in the Johnstown area a couple of weeks ago, and we stopped by the flight 93 memorial. We said a prayer for them and their families before heading back. Sobering experience to say the least.

    Your house and location sound perfect for you given your familial situation. Its nice, too, that you'll all be sharing the house. I'm sure that will be beneficial to everyone.

    Good luck with your new beginning!

    More freedom. Lower taxes. A nearby Chick-Fil-A.

    Seems like a pretty positive move.

    You can always visit if you find yourself going to western PA (or anywhere else that ain't Philly). Who knows, you might even find yourself not wanting to return to NY while you are down there. that's what happened to us. Every time I turned the truck east to go "home", it just got harder to do. NY was my home for many years, but it has gone downhill over the last decade or so for me. It was time to get out.

    JW. I think it will work pretty well, at least for the first couple of years or so. We want to buy a house somewhere not in the city, but for right now we want to settle in for a spell. Once the daughter is done with college (This fall will be her last year of high school) we will look into other places, and see what's out there. For now, I am happy with the fact that it is west of the NY border. I guess growing up Marine has made it hard for me to settle somewhere when there are still places I haven't seen. 23 years in Western NY was about 20 years too long when you grow up spending no more than 3 years in one place. God help me, I actually miss that. LOL.

    Thanks again Bro.

    Update....

    We have a little less than 2 months to go until we are finally moved in to the PA house. Just a few more weeks of driving back and forth, and about 3 more trips with both the truck and the trailer. time to start selling off the stuff that is not going with us, and time to pay the last month on our storage unit (we pay a month ahead, so this will be Junes payment. Hard to believe we are this close.
