HAHA ...well my OTHER Office is Ft Greely - a balmy -30 when we usually visit
Work-a-day activities take place in a much less auspicious office in a cubical farm...my only perk is I have a door

I'm sure you are a nice guy, but I am pre-disposed to hate you. I live on the entrance corner of a multi-subdivsion development. I am forever having the sign clowns putting signs in my yard. Realtors are the worst. In 12 years, I have only had one guy ask my permission, and that's only because I was walking over to remove the sign as soon as he took his hand off of it. I know you get paid either way, but I remove the signs as fast as they are put in place. The yards on the next street up look like a circus and I ain't letting that happen to mine.

Anyway, this is what I do to earn my $$$

My husband and I own a couple of those "dreaded car dealerships". I stay home with our kiddos, and we try to travel as much as possible, both by land and air. We like to expose ourselves and the kids to as much as we can while we have them with us.
We enjoy our home state of CO, it's a great state to RV in.

Ft Greely... as in Alaska? Spent 3 years there when I was a military brat. Dad was the NCOIC of the Tank Range for the Arctic Test Center. The M60 tank was his baby.

Anyway, like a couple others on here, I spent too much time dealing with the idiots of society while in law enforcement - almost 36 years worth. In Patrol, in Investigations and finally in Administration. Now, I spend my time protecting all those people as well as members of our Judiciary in MD.

Camped in sub-zero weather (Ft Greely, Alaska while in Boy Scouts) and have been doing it ever since. All my kids camped, as did both wives - 3rd/current, still does. And we go whenever we can.

Nah..you wouldn't hate me. At least I hope not Im a camper too None of my signs are placed in peoples yards. I refuse to do that!
I can understand totally your position on the posting of signs. My advise to you would be lay them down on the ground or in the ditch, after a week or two the installer would get the idea. If not take them. When they keep finding them missing $$$$ sets in. Cost of a sign on a pole is about $35 each. And remember in most towns and communities posting of signs w/o a permit is illegal if that helps. But government tends to turn its head when they want
TAX dollars $$

By the way my day job is kinda related to yours, well sort of. Im a graphite guy, some of our scrap goes to the steel industry.

Happy campin
Carl

I'm retired from that large three letter computer company... living on 4 acres in the country and growing tomatoes, cantaloupes, etc., for family and friends. I'm not a rocket scientist, but one of my more interesting software development gigs was to help produce the operating system software for the Onboard Flight Computers which provided onboard control of NASA's Space Shuttle. I did this work and a couple of years on the Skylab project just out the gate from the Johnson Space Center near Houston.

About once every 3-4 years, my parents took us camping at Turner Falls in southern Oklahoma and Beaver's Bend on the east end of Okla. We slept on a quilt and covered with a sheet... no tent, no stove - but I can still smell that bacon frying in a cast iron skillet over a stick fire!

Mom and I acknowledge that we are blessed beyond measure to be able to glamor camp as we do now.
