    Are those legislators and politicians in Colorado originally from Kail??? I think not. Don't blame other states for your own problems boys......it's a nationwide mentality now.

    I am an electrician at a soda ash plant in southwestern wyoming. I work shift work and it is great. I only have to work half the month so it leaves alot of time to hunt. The money is great and the time off is even better. If I take my four day shifts off I get 14 days off. so I spend alot of time in the mountains. best job I could ever ask for.

    Went through a union apprenticeship for operating engineers. Shortly after making journeyman status got laid off due to lack of work. Was unemployed for a little over a year. Which got me and my girlfriend to pick up and move to colorado where her profession in commercial real-estate and property management had a lot of opportunity. I now operate a tigercat for a company that manufactures wood pellets and remediation products for the oil fields. It's not cutting or pushing dirt with a D9 but its work and I get four days a week off. Can't wait for opening day!!!

    Lets not blame all the Californians who moved here. I'm one of them. Not native though. I was born and brought up in Mass.

That is due to compounded interest. It's better to sacrifice a bit on the front end and enjoy the rewards on the back end.
    Solid, solid, solid advice. Dumping a little bit of cash into your 401K and hoping for the best isn't gonna get it either. We sink so much into investments/retirement savings, that at times, it seems ridiculous. But, I refuse to work for the man past the age of 50.

    I am a very independent contract worker for the federal governemnt. I make my own schedule that includes regular travel across IL, WI, northeast MO, & UP of M. This allows me to combine a lot of hunting/fishing trips with my work & get my travel expenses paid for. I feel like I'm semi-retired and that is good because my trailer trash ex never paid one bill of our 3 sons or herself in 20 years, never contributed to one mortgage payment, gas/electric bill, food bill, clothing bill, or anything else. **** tanked her systems analyst career and 4 year bachelor's degree. Gov't threw all my land development money at her. Hid the the $500,000 she stole and now lives off gov't programs at your expense. Oh ya she manipulated and controlled my 3 sons, moved them to TX. The parasite steals her last support payment from me in 3 weeks. The gravy train will end but the horse is out of the barn. So I won't have a real retirement. Other than that it's all good.
