    Return of the Prodigal Son...

    Howdy all,

    I grew up around Columbus/Gnaw Bone area, graduated from Purdue in '73, and followed a motorcycle industry job to Pismo Beach, California in '78.

    You're probably aware of what's going on out here, and if you're not you should be. Wife has another 18 months to go before she can retire, and then... then it's Back Home Again in Indiana.

    This was a great place to live and work for the last 42 years but now, due to the politics of this state, it isn't. We're looking for a place in the south, maybe down along the Ohio; Madison, Aurora, Tell City, someplace that has a view of water. It won't be like looking at the Pacific Ocean every morning, it will be better.

    Hey, I war engahneer... spelling doesn't count ((as much) ... I got 'prodigal' right)).

    Not home yet; 18 months to go. Starting to sweat bullets, if the 2A intrusions aren't enough, the &#%@ CA state legislature is starting to mess around with property tax changes, health care of illegal immigrant seniors, increasing sales tax, reducing property tax deductions, blah, blah, blah... can't get out fast enough as far as I'm concerned.

    My son lives just down the road from you at Vandenburg AFB. He and his wife go up to Pismo Beach once in awhile. We ate lunch their last summer.

    I like to visit him and we usually go to SLO at least once and have been up to Paso, but mostly we just hang out.

    See a rocket launch now and then.

    We like visiting, but I wouldn't want to live there. He and his wife thought it was cool for about the first year. They are over it now and are already looking forward to their next base.

    Welcome!

    Welcome back! I left CA in 1995 and have family living in both Los Osos and Santa Maria that are planning their retirement escapes as well. There used to be a great place for Fiatís in Pismo called Terryís Fiat I think. Been years since Iíve stopped by there and am guessing that they are no longer around.

    I do like a well prepared Tri-Tip, Santa Maria style!
