Well, it's happened: I'm free at last! I am now a Nevadan (damn, it feels good to say that). Escrow closed about 3 weeks ago, and we've been busier than hell trying to get stuff to our liking. It will take (I'd guess) 6 months to get the home up to snuff, and likely 2 years for the property/land, but it will all be a labor of love. I genuinely look forward to the challenge and reward.
While I have only moved about 3 hours to the east, it's a world of difference. That is not hyperbole. The difference in face to face interactions, as well as public interactions (i.e., driving) between Kalifornia and Nevada is striking.
Oh Lord, I'm an idiot for taking so long to do this!
Anyways, more tales and perspective to come. It's interesting to now live in an "up for grabs" political state. I can tell you that here in Northern Nevada, every person I've encountered is libertarian/conservative. I guess part of the Reno crowd as well as Vegas makes up the liberal/socialist contingent. I can tell you that I will be working and spending my political dollars like a crazed banshee to ensure my new home state doesn't go like its sad, sad neighbor to the west.
I'll be back soon with some stories of the whole process. See ya in a bit.
