Thanks Eddie. He truly IS!!!


By the way everyone ... I met a fellow board member and survivalist the other day. We had a nice chat over coffee at the local IHOP. Good to know there are some like-minded folks in the area.

You might have checked out "General Delivery" at the nearest main Post Office.
It's perfectly legal to receive mail addressed:
John Schmidt
c/o General Delivery
Big City, State, Zip.


Of course, you'll need some ID until the postmaster / staff recognize you.


Another option:
Have mail sent to a friendly local, addressed:
John Schmidt
c/o friend's house and street
Big City, State, Zip


Even if you don't live there, you can get your mail there.

jeff_k Congrats on your success!


Me moving back home (VA) for family reasons has been a challenge. Financially I was better off in Utah. Gun laws were similar, until the occupiers won in Nov. I'll be doing my part out here. Keeping my eyes on the Beehive state, because I truly found a home there. 👍

Thanks
The cool thing about Cedar is that nice scenery surrounds the town on all sides. I'm personally interested it moving out of town. Although I love the high mountains to the East or Southeast I prefer the rolling hills between Cedar and Enterprise, Utah (as you head west towards Nevada). But I hear that the only access to water is a deep well so I'm going to search around for a better water source. That will likely require that I move further from town than initially anticipated. Nevertheless, those hills are beautiful and covered with cedar (or juniper) trees/shrubs.

If you look to the east, you see this.


Looking to the west is basin and range, arid scrub.

ActionJackson One more update:

My branch manager and his wife were both fired on Friday (the 13th). As a result, I was immediately given a $2.00 per hour raise then offered the branch manager position (I sorta knew this was coming). I will remain the driver until we can hire two new workers. Our sales rep will be the interim manager until we get these guys trained. Once I take the manager position, I will get another $3.75 per hour increase but will go from an hourly rate to a set salary. For this area of the state and country, I will be making some really good cash.

The posts in this thread are great and has given me lots of ideas and made me think of things I would never have thought of.


Well let me know if you ever plan on moving to my part of Utah. I'll help you out in any way I can.


And thanks to everyone for all of your comments. Sorry it took so long for me to respond.

I've never heard of Flaming Gorge but if you were near Wyoming then it couldn't be too far from Logan, UT where I lived in 1979 to 1981 (or thereabouts). I almost got frostbite in Logan as I was untrained in the ways of winter. Another 30 minutes in that -20 degree (wind chill of -30) I would have lost the tips of several fingers.

Panguitch is good people. They’re small town, so it may be hard to become part of the community, but if you can stick it out and show that you’re also good people, it will work out.

You looking at commuting to Cedar from Panguitch? That 70 miles could get ugly when the snow flies.

If I ever move to Panguitch I would try to find a job in or near the town. I don't like long commutes. It seems to be a pretty clean town with painted houses and nice yards. It's smaller than Cedar which is to my liking.

teddyearp Glad it finally worked out for you. Seems like the Lord wanted you there, just didn't want to make it too easy, or forgive me, maybe for some reason he wanted you to make it harder on yourself for a bit?

I've got some stories of my two moves to Arizona where I didn't have any jobs or family. The first move was REALLY something. The second one, I planned a bit better, but it still had its moments. We can thank the Patriot Act for making the DL thing a bit more difficult than it used to be.

Maybe I'll relate them sometime.

Good on ya for the grit to make it happen. A lot of us in Colorado are looking for any way to get out of Dodge..... You just made it happen.

There were some pretty tough downs during the journey but everything worked out. I'm mostly happy with the results. I'm secretly looking for a job that pays more though. I'm at a beginning wage in an industry that I have 25 years worth of experience.
