New chapter in my life, leaving California after 21 years.....................yes, 21 years! I wasn't born in California, and quite honestly, do no consider myself Californian.

Mainly financial move, also tired of all the local Government, high taxes, traffic, idiotic drivers and living in a one bedroom Condo.

Should be arriving in RTP mid June, lots of work ahead. Buying my 2nd car for sure and will need to equip it. (any good installers?)

Hope to meet some of you and make new friends. My main hobbies are cars, ECM, road cycling, mountain biking, the beach and traveling.

I own 2 Lidar guns (LZ1, PL3), been in this "game" for 18 years now. :p

:uhaul:

Congratulations, lucky you! I almost moved to NC/SC a few months ago, but of course I didn't get the job. I think I'm stuck in the northeast hell forever.

Sorry, I'm kind of a noob with the driving distances there, let me check Google maps. LOL

304 miles to MD, that's cake walk in California terms. I can do that with my eyes closed.

Anything is better than Cali right now. At least you have water and way way lower taxes.

I second that.

I tried to do this 1.5 years ago, and the buyer flaked out (dumb cunt, wish I met her in person)

Clock is ticking, things are looking good.

Illinois isn't bad except for Crooked County. The problem is Crooked County controls the state. :( Cut off the head and the rest of the beast will die.

I know. I already own a Glock 17 9mm, and I will be getting my CCW and buying more guns.

To me, after 21 years, I woke up one morning and asked myself what the F### am I doing in this State.................I just decided it wasn't for me anymore, I don't agree with how the State is run, I hate the drivers and how fake people are so I decided not to stay.
