HUGE Life Change and Job Change

    Well,

    As a few members know I am in the process of making a HUGE change in my life, centered mainly around my job and where I live.

    For the last 8 years I have been an IT (computers) professional, working downtown Tulsa, OK. Just the good old corporate BS life with all its perks and pitfalls.

    Well come the end of May I had my job outsourced overseas, and the IT job market is in such sad state in Tulsa that to go back to work doing waht I was doing, I would have been lucky to get offered 40 to 50 cents on the dollar as to what I was making.

    So after being a fishing bum for a month, I started commuting to help out at a friend of mine who owns a fast growing resort on the North Fork of the White River, Missouri Ozarks. And after 2 1/2 months of talks, we have found a way for me to make the move permanent, and become his new Property Manager.

    So, wish me well as I assume the reigns at http://www.riveroflifefarm.com/ .

    Additionally, if anyone wants to come visit me in person, as long as it is not our peak times I should be able to cut you a discount on lodging, camping, or boating.

    I look forward to seeing those interested.

    P.S. It will take me several weeks before I am able to get satellite Internet access installed (tonight I am back in Tulsa packing for the move), so I will be gone from the BOC for a bit, but shall return.

    Jim, it looks as if the out sourcing of your corporate rat race job was a blessing in disguise! Looks kind of like a dream job.

    Congrats!
