    LOL, time to re-calibrate your "close" meter.

    I live in Texas. When my oldest went TDY to an Army course at Fort Bliss (El Paso), he was closer to his barracks in California than he was to my house in Texas.

    Of course, driving 200 miles for lunch isn't unheard of here, either.

    I've never been to Michigan so I have no idea what it's like there but I have been to El Paso. I'll put it this way I hope you love your job because there is nothing in El Paso. Maybe after you're there for awhile you can get transferred to east Texas. Either way congrats.

    I am just fine with nothing, in fact the more the better! My time will be spent working, and shooting hopefully not at the same time. But I am the out doors type so I hear the big bend area is full of places to hike and camp so I plan on doing that as much as I can.

    Here's a pic I took off of my hotel balcony in Big Bend one afternoon. I think there were only two people in the park that day, not counting rangers.

    Yes I am aware of that incident and since my job will be in Juarez I will be extra alert to my surroundings. The 2 leg variety of pest is what I worry more about, scorpions, spiders and snakes don't bother me so much.

    YES It was a very illegal bullet! ammo brought into the US from a foriegn country that hasn't had all the paper work signed dotted and crossed is indeed illegal! It dose not matter how it got here, just that it did! I would sign off on a SEAL team going over and returning it for that lady who got injured. And I find it hard to believe that El Paso is really such a wonderfully safe city since it borders the Mexican murder capital, I would put money on a lot of reclassed crime stats and padding of numbers.
