    8 more years then the boy is out of the house, I’ll be open to live anywhere (except California lol).

    I think the plant will be open for about 10 more years. I’m sure politics/politicians, regulations, and state regulatory agencies will dictate the exact retirement dates though.

    Right on. CA is a hard no, lol.
    Just make sure you're not the last guy at the plant.
    When the time is right apply at any hydro on the Columbia River, you should be good to go with any generation experience.

    If configuring an airplane was like choosing a Tundra, then I explain to customers the differences between a SR, SR5, Limited, Platinum, 1794 Edition and TRD Pro. Then I get told all the reasons why TRD Pros need to be priced cheaper than the SRs.

    I can sign you up, then you sign five friends up, then they each sign five friends up, and so on. All I need from you is a $500.00 check. Then you get a $500.00 check from each of your friends, send me half, then they each get a check, send you half, you send me half of that.....actually, it’s probably better if you just buy my book.

    I signed up for the Great War machine pyramid class and man I couldn’t be more impressed with the results. Without his knowledge and experience I would still be stuck in the rut without five friends. Thanks war machine! Your the best!





    btw - sorry the check bounced the first time.

    I tell a machine that’s smarter than me what to do. Then I watch it do what I told it to do. Hoping that I didn’t make any mistakes while telling it what to do.

    I’m also late to meetings because “I was finishing an email”. Translated, that means I was distracted by another idiotic transmission cooler / oil / tire size thread here.

    Left the rat race over 13 years ago, if I get into rush hour traffic now I really can't grasp how people cope with the nonsense on a regular basis. However, I have not quite reached the Alaskan millionaire status yet, still have two children at home.

    I nail water to a tree and tell people that know more than me to do it my way. Then explain to them why I’m right, and to do more better next time.
