I don't blame ya for not wanting to move up here, half the year is not exactly bike friendly. It is the same situation everywhere though with work. Really tough market as everyone sais, I am glad I am still young and living with my parents in that respect, my job is goin through a tough time and although we were promised that there will be no lay offs, my hours were cut and it makes bills pretty tough to pay. Could be much worse, you have time to figure somethin out, and things may change. Good luck, I am sure I speak for everyone when I say you have family in the forum if you ever need advice.
