    I guess I could have just replied to thecomfortzone44's thread, but figured I'd get more responses here.

    I am up here in connecticut and have not liked it from day 1. I too, would not mind moving down south where it is warm, but I just don't know anyone anywhere. I've been here for 5 years now and I am literally just alone where friends are concerned. Not one person has ever been to my house, and when I ask co workers if they want to do something, they are too wrapped up in their own lives to give a ****.

    I not only want a place where it is warm, but a place where attic and crawl space work is minimal. And from what I hear, down south there is no such thing.

    When I lived in Kansas, it was all gas warm air furnaces, mostly in basements. And I enjoy the A/C work, summer is my favorite season, but around here there seems to be less and less of it every summer. I remember changing 3 to 5 condenser fan motors every week in the summer, now that I am up here, I have literally only replaced 6 condenser fan motors in 5 summers. that's how much A/C work is here.

    I want to go back to working on gas furnaces (Here is is mostly oil boilers), and having enough A/C service work to keep me busy from may through october. Man I miss those days. I also want a place where people are sociable and accepting. Somewhere where I can meet new friends and invite them over for games, or to go fishing, and have them actually come.

    More or less a place where everyone is everyone else's neighbor. Here you can't even go into a supply house and crack a joke without the guys just looking at you like you are stupid, wheras back in kansas, I could have done the exact same thing and had everyone laughing.


    Unless I can find some other place I know for damn sure I will like,I'm thinking I might just go back to Kansas where all of my friends are, and hopefully get my social life back.

    The only other problem is the cost of moving. I looked at the price for a uhaul truck and it is over $2,800. Plus all the gas and motels. Was hoping to move this spring but at that price I'm going to have to wait another year I think.

    U-haul

    Theres a trick you can pull off concerning the U-Haul expense. Just tell them you want to move to a town close to your true destination where they dont get that many trucks, that way they may charge you a whole lot less...just give it a shot. They charge you according to how many trucks they have at your destination. I moved from Billings, MT to Reno, NV and paid only $100 for the truck because according to them there was a truck shortage in Reno (not true, there was a truck surplus, someone screwed up) and so I got a awesome deal.

    Why did you move away from Kansas?

    They work when you start a new thread but not when you are posting to an old one.

    You actually have to type the emoticon's in.
