Getting away from Jersey has done me a world of good. I hope it works out.
I'm expecting quality-of-life to improve substantially. Hell, a minimum of 3 1/2 hours a day NOT commuting is a big deal. I could do a lot with that time.

Lest you think I joke about commuting time, I leave home in the morning at 6:10 and typically walk into my office at about 7:50. If there are delays on any of the three trains I take I'm later. Then reverse the process coming home.
I believe it, and I understand. When I lived in East Rutherford and worked in Raritan my commute was over an hour and a half each way, and it was almost all highway miles.

When we moved and it cut my commute to under an hour each way I was overjoyed. It was glorious.

We tried a gated resort-type community of similar description in Drums (almost the Poconos), but CINCHOME haaaaaaaated the hills and trees. I liked 'em okay, but I also still liked home enough that we sold the place and bought another back home, and I went back to commuting. My drive is about 320 miles, but my daily commute from my local apartment to my office on campus is about 0.6 miles, so one small compensation for being away is that I get to walk to work (very nice, if you like that sort of thing).

Without Skype it would really suck, but Skype has been a godsend.

Cancelled train before mine tonite. My usual train was standing room only. According to NJ Transit the train was cancelled because of conductor availability.

This morning my wife noted that the pants I was wearing we're worn and we needed to get me new pants. I pointed out that if we move to the hideout and I work from home I don't need pants.

Yes I'm getting into the possibility.

Well, another update.

I've now spoken to both consulting company managers, both have no problem with me working from home and want to keep me on the project, so that hurdle is jumped. Higher manager will speak to the client, she thinks he'll be OK with it since other people telecommute (including that same manager).

HTRN, I would tell you that you are an evil fucker, but you probably get that a lot ~ Netpackrat

Describing what HTRN does as "antics" is like describing the wreck of the Titanic as "a minor boating incident" ~ First Shirt

We'll go shooting when we're both there. And reminisce about Rich R and Hank A. Among others.
