    Meh... Ron, I have a fairly good back up. The US 7th Fleet. I am only worried about earthquakes, nuclear meltdowns, the zombie apocalypse and spoiled sushi.

    Earthquakes is a good one to worry about. We used to do drills for earthquakes in grade school when I lived there. Experience quite a few small ones. Thankfully no major earthquakes during that time .

    Heading to CARMX at lunch. See how much they will give me for the Red Peril. 2009 Nissan Frontier CrewCab. GPS, truck box, bed extender, cargo handling system, 4WD, tow package, 4 years left on extended warranty.... Only 54K miles cuz I generally ride a motorcycle most places. I'm pretty sure they will low ball me. Then I'll go to the Nissan dealership where I bought it and see what they will do. You can take a vehicle to Japan but it is a painful and onerous process. Better to get something used at the lemon lot on base.

    It towed 3 bikes out to Colorado once.... I was pleasantly surprised with the CARMAX offer. $16K. I'll go to the dealer next week and see what they will offer and pull the trigger on Tuesday to unload the beast.

    Yep. Wife is taking 3 weeks leave and flying out with me to pick out a house. Then she's flying back to continue working and hopefully sell our house. Not a great time to sell. We've been on the market for about 1.5 months with minor interest.
