  • Moving back to Oklahoma

    well we sold the house here in Florida. December 15th headed west to my birthplace of Oklahoma. Bought an acreage, after 16 years of living in a HOA and having people measure your grass, and time how long you garbage cans are left out by the curb. I'm done,Never again ! So if you don't see any progress posts on the roadstar just know as soon as we get settled in I will be back after it. I'm really excited how close I am to being done. Paint will have to wait till the spring since it's just a little colder in Oklahoma in the winter

              Nice. Could not deal with living in a neighborhood. Hell, I don’t even like the neighbors I have. Especially when the corn comes down and I can see their house, lol.

                  Thank you sir ! Will be posting a few new ones today making some real progress now.

                Congratz Rob... Hope the move goes smoothly. BTW, I've got to ask, did the weather in FL have anything to do with it?

                  The humidity is about the same as home in summertime, but it shouldn't be humid and 80's in November! in all seriousness I am tired of hurricane seasons. Tornadoes last 15 minutes and their gone

                Welcome back to the true Midwest, not what those dang northerners keep referring to . By the way, your attendance will be required at next year's OKC lunch run with the Kansas and Texas delegations. Date TBD

                  Agreed. I’m a proud Michigander and don’t understand why we are considered a Midwest state. If anything we have our own designation here as the Great Lakes region. We have unique circumstances here with our surroundings. Weather created by the big lakes that is unlike most of the rest of the country. And we speak with no accent. Except Yoopers who sound almost Canadian, lol. If you go 200-300 miles in any direction, different accents start to show up.

                we will have to get together i live 6 miles south of your birthplace or city. Blanchard has really grown in the past 10 yrs or so. MBK forgot the Oklahoma delegation as we weren't mentioned but its all good . MBK coulnt resist brother

                As someone who is also living in an HOA, I feel your pain. These gestapo loving idiots even gave my sister a citation for having a small pile of twigs collected after a thunderstorm.

                  We just found out from our realtor we have to get an estoppel document getting "clearance" to leave the neighborhood. Oh, and it's 250 bucks. You can't go to closing without it, supposedly states you don't owe them any money. Never never never again!

              • #15
                So it looks like I will miss you this Christmas when I come down, safe travel and safer move. I left Florida in 2003 and will never move back!
                All these extra nuts and bolts go somewhere... oh well, I'll figure it out later.

                  Sorry about that I was hoping to let you try out the Indian. My sister tells me central Oklahoma could get 1-4 inches of snow Tuesday. I know those of you who get hammered with snow every year probably hate it but after 16 years of no snow I will enjoy at least one winter

                    I'm working on getting out of the Chicago area. We didn't have HOA but don't want neighbors.
                    And here, there is a tax from your town, your county, and your state for moving out. They tax the heck out of you so you want to move, then tax you for moving.

                    I have ton of work to do on the new place, but as far as I'm concerned, the kitchen is ready.

                    This is so great compared to 90 minutes and $50 an hour at the range. :-)

                      Very nice ! My wife thinks I'm kidding about shooting from the back porch and peeing my name in the snow

                      How can any town/county/state TAX you on leaving? There are some seriously screwed up laws in the books.

                    Not enough snow to practice calligraphy yet,
                    but the back porch is closer than than the bathroom.

                        Never buy a home with a HOA. Just walk away.
