    Any room for Diet Coke and beer drinkers and lsr racers? lol
    Why do you have to be so far away out on the left coast anyway?
    Demographics are stronger on this side and cost of living is probably half of what it is out there, so as Drew Carry says ..............Come on Down.
    Living the dream!

        Why, oh why, did I re-enlist? If I even had the slightest feeling this would happen I'd spend the next 8 mo learning how to do it all....

        What about field reporters? Not everything can be in SoCal..kinda freelance work, both written and shot

            Does this position allow for total access to the state-of-the-art CJTV shop, tools and refrigerator???

            I would forego the 401k for a fully stocked fridge....

              Alright,I'm gonna make a list of the requirements,and strive to master all of them. I love Cali,as I hate rust.Of course with the Charger,Cuda,S10 and a barn full of parts and tools...Everybody I know has been telling me I HAVE to get a job involving my passion for cars,and that my writing skills are top notch.Maybe they're just brown-nosing (I don't know why they would,I don't have any money!)

                        As much as I would love that job; I qualify for none. Sounds like a crazy, fun job. Sucks that I am one of the few here that wouldn't have to move either.

                            I have been a gearhead video junkie since video was invented.
                            I have my own gear and can take your direction over the phone/vie email. Location aint a problem.
                            I can't take a staff gig but am totally open to freelance opportunities.
