I'm out!

Finally, after living in a state I absolutely hate for the past 5 years, an opportunity has come up and I am moving! On November 1 I will be moving to Fort Myers FL with my best friend and his current roommate. I'm psyched. I hope the riding doesn't suck down there.

Everyone is telling me I will absolutely love it down there. Most of whose opinions I trust. I think it will be really fun. I am buying a new DSLR before I leave, so that will keep me plenty busy on my free time from work. And free time I will have, since I am transferring down with my current company. I only work about 4 hours a day.

Just be sure to check out the theft scene. I have yet to see anyone suggest Florida has a normal theft level for bikes; most suggest its insanely common In that case, start your security planning!

I recall ZX posting this picture before:



I don't think he needs to worry about security.

Ironically, that is my best friend Jason. He will be one of my roommates.

Weapons aren't of any use if you never knew when it got lifted

Here's a trick that I've seen suggested, presuming you have a garage. Get an inexpensive baby monitor with enough receivers to cover your house/whatever and set the sending unit in the garage for overnight. They are cheap and quite sensitive. Heck, they even sell monitors with video and combined with a motion sensing garage light you'd know if someone was lifting it from there.

Then all you'd have to worry about is leaving it while going into a store or whatever.
