    Thank you everyone! Things are still progressing, but no firm offer yet. I just finished getting my fingerprints done last Friday. However, I have found housing and temporary housing until my 'real' housing is ready. I'm super excited and have been spending my weekends packing. Are the people in upstate NY still called New Yorkers?! Or does that name apply only to NYC people? :D

    We are still called New Yorkers simply because 90% of the population thinks that the City is all there is of New York :D I can't tell you how many times I have been asked if I can see the Statue of Liberty from my house :unsure: umm..she is 4 hours away!

    New York! That is too great for you, Billie! :yes: (Where roughly? Central NY, Southern Tier NY, Western NY, Northern NY)? I know you aren't in the five boroughs, given your question. :D

    Yep, most people think NY, means the city. :yes: :D

    When do you think you'll be heading that way? At least getting there and getting settled in during the summer is better than having to do it mid winter!

    The fall is glorious, you are so going to love it!

    What sort of government work are you going to be doing? :unsure:

    Oh and as for you, Mr. Catrancher, hmph!

    I will be moving to the north east part of the state. It looks beautiful online and yes, moving in the summer is ideal. I can't imagine moving in the winter. I don't have the vehicle yet to make it easier.

    Dannemora? I had a cousin who worked there and lived at Chazy Lake.

    If so, you will absolutely need to live on top of Dannemora, (as in walking distance) or get a HIGH four wheel drive. The snow there is legendary and makes Alaska look like Florida.

    You'll love it!

    This is totally like Where's Waldo. :lol:

    Actually Plattsburgh will be very close to me. Of course up there 'close' is a relative term.

    Yes, relative to how much snow stands between you and your destination! It's beautiful country, but seriously cold and snowy! Being so close to the St. Lawrence River is wonderful. We vacationed there often.

    Plan to visit Montreal and Quebec City. Both beautiful places! I love Canada!

    Look out for the "monster" in Lake Champlain! :D

    :ROFL:

    I was thiiissss close! :happydance:

    :yeahthat:

    What Tink said!

    Do take a drive up to Montreal. Makes for a nice weekend. Hop on Autoroute 15 and over the Pont Champlain and you're there. Only about an hours drive. Go shopping at the Place Ville Marie. Visit old Montreal. Go see Notre Dame Basilica. The place is amazing. But polish up your French before you go. Not 100% necessary but it really helps. A lot in some instances.

    I remember one time having a wonderful dinner in a little basement restaurant down a narrow side street in old Montreal. Wonderful meal. Absolutely delicious. But ordering it was a challenge. You see, no one in the restaurant understood a word of English and my extremely limited French was little or no use.
    Ordered from the menu by pointing. :shocked:

    Just don't go in winter.

    Tom :)macwave:... hope you ski.)

    I really hope to take advantage of being in that area of the country. It's one area that I haven't lived and I'll be so 'close' to so many different places! I don't know any French. I've had 4 years of German, but still couldn't say much. Not one of my personal talents. I think it'll be mandatory to ski. Kinda like a right of passage. Never been. There are some great outdoor activities up there. Great hiking and white water rafting. I'm so excited, however, I will need to be reminded of this feeling come January.

    She is going to live near me - ha! I win :p

    I have to take advantage since nobody ever comes this way. Except Tink and I haven't managed to catch her yet :lol:

    The most fun is going to Niagara Falls on the Canadian side :yes: Nothing fancy, but when we were little we always thought it was so cool to be able to go into another Country for a day trip :D
