    It is a big state so if you want to get anywhere around here you gotta put some windshield time in. But 300 miles really isn't bad at all for a weekend. It's 4 hours if you don't stop.

    Besides, haven't you not left a 15 mile radius from home but maybe twice in 7 years (once to see Bert)? 300 miles to you is like me traveling to Brazil, Lol. Winking

    I commute almost 100 a day (daily routine), but yeah, I do tend to stay in the neighborhood. I change the oil and rotate the tires every month and a half.

    *also Bert lives on the way to my Mom's. He's lucky for that coincidence.

    **Also it's 13 years.

    I know I'm pathetic, I need to start spending instead of saving.

    Yep, Bergen county. I appreciate the info... yeah, Hoboken will be busy. We are pretty well stock up... been just buying a little extra each day for the last few weeks, so I won't have to go back out. You in Hoboken?

    BTW, should have known the sensible UK fan was here in NJ. I mean, @JimboBBN USED to be the sensible UK fan around here, but now he is just too drunk to be that.

    Damn. Ever thought about moving closer to work? That has to wear down on you because you're probably going straight through traffic every day, right?

    That's a hell of a tax deduction though. When I used to live in DFW and drive to West Texas for work I would average like 35,000+ miles a year. At 58 cents a mile write off that came in huge.

    My job isn't far, the shop is 50 miles one way. I also have other stuff going on daily i've never brought up here. I drive right at 100 miles a day. That's why I drive a '14 kia forte. F'r gets 38 mpg, and is basically a disposable car. The other cars from my other post is a '04 grand am, (214kmiles) and '10 Chevy Cobalt (225k miles). I'm trying to sell them for scrap prices so don't have to a)haul them to the junkyard, b) let someone else, who's not about to move, part them out, get them running, make money off them. I got exactly what I wanted out of them.

    *I hadn't thought about the 50 miles to the shop as some write off.

    ** @schoonerwest you should come and visit. We'll meet up at my place, drive to Knoxville and do some dirt car racing.

    It'll be a few years before I do anything like that and Knoxville will be about 74th on the list of wild weekends I want to get out and experience. Probably much lower than that even. Lol

    It's about 74th on the places I want to live.

    I'm working so much, I can tell my wife, f*ck your license, **** my license, I'm done and going home.



    I'm tired, I'm tired of living like a poor, I'm tired of working 60 hrs plus, tired of the grind of selling, tired of my routine, I'm f'n tired and I'm only 44.

    We were just advised that grocery stores "could" be bare in the next 2 weeks here. So we should be prepared. People have been panic buying here for a few days not, but nothing major yet.

    I don't think it'll be bad at all. I think most people would pick Knoxville over Memphis all day everyday. Tons of nightlife, plenty of opportunity and WAY LESS crime. It should be an upgrade and won't you be a lot closer to where you grew up? My wife has cousins who live there. They like it a lot.

    yeah, it knocks half the commute off visiting the closest of relatives. Will definitely be less crime and shear f'n hatred everyone has for each other, that I've become accustomed to.

    My wife and I biggest draw is all the nature and hills. Something about being a hillbilly is appealing. I love them. Love just seeing them. Nothing worse than driving to the shop where there's a 7 mile flat straight stretch of Hwy. I know that's nothing in Texas, but that sucks dick for me.

    Other than TP, canned beef and chicken are the hot items here. We always keep a little supply. Kinda like Thedude said, just buy a little extra each trip. Here, you never know when you could be snowed in, flooded in, etc..

    Poland is closing its borders and suspending all travel into the country for a 10 day period. They will then quarantine those coming in still for another 14 days. It's literally exactly like the pandemic games I used to play.

    No shit, but wife and I are off right now, She's reading facebook post about women selling breast milk.

    If there is a meltdown of sorts, would semen be a commodity?

    Haha. Weehawken, but near enough to Hoboken that it's our main go to for dining and going out. I miss living there, but I don't miss the constant water main breaks. And I have a house (with a large outdoor space and privacy) that I could never afford in Hoboken, so that's nice.

    If we all survive the apocalypse, we should have a NYC hang out one day. Hoping to get a grill and outdoor sink installed later this year.

    Hell yeah. I'm 44 as well. Living my best life right now tbh. I'm not sure there is much at all I would change about things outside of the world being swallowed up by the corona vortex.

    I went to the grocery store this morning because that is what I do on Fridays. It was handsoap, TP, and bacon at my Kroger. I mean, I like bacon but thought that was a little weird.

    We have a deep freeze with all kinds of deer meat and random crap for the air fryer. That isn't for any sort of doomsday scenario though.
