    Once you get over the fact that everyone who lives near Hanford glows green at night, it's not a bad place :D

    (both my older and younger brother worked at Hanford for a number of years and they stopped glowing green when they found jobs elsewhere in the country :) )

    ...just kidding...

    A cousin lives in Tri Cities and only comes to Seattle "to see if the windshield wipers still work". He FFs some, mostly for SMB in the river I think. I was involved with the Horn Rapids development and GC, but didn't spend much time there.

    Dave, what is a "Ditch Pickle"? I can imagine but that's a dangerous thing. Never heard the term but it's a gud1.
    Edit: Belay that, got it. It's (either a snowmobile, or) a SMB. Funny term.

    Gene- You're assuming everyone thinks glowing at night is a negative thing.:D

    Thanks for everyones help. I will be spending sometime down there before we make a definite decision. Hopefully some of you will have some free time to throw out a few lines.

    Im leaning towards it being a good career opportunity . Would rather do it now while the kids are young and my wife is still in school.

    I don't glow much anymore; I reserve it for holidays & night fishing. But . . . I can light a gas grill from 20' away just by pointing at it . . .

    Its a kelty, not sure of the model. they have several diferent ones depending on how much you want to spend and how much room you need.
