Although G'burg is somewhat in the boonies (though nothing like being in WV) it does have a 24hr Dennies; now that would have been useful information for me to have recalled. I am enjoying the semi-rural environment however. Last night as I was taking Odin for a walk out back I came face-to-face with a couple of deer: a stag and his doe. They looked at me for a second and then scampered off into the woods. That made me feel happier about being out here.
The house needs a lot of work doing to it, but it's comfortable and I have a lot of space to work with, which I like. I am going to make the large finished basement into a training area for Kali Silat and JKD training. It is going to be ok living up here, though the gas prices are making the 5 days a week commute quite pricey! I will have to try and persuade my company to let me telecommute a couple of days a week; at the very least let me do one day. I tried that before but PMs never respected my telecommute day and would always commit me to client meetings; making it a lost cause. Sigh.
