You betcha. I've also been asked to join the VERT team at work, which will give me an opportunity to get brush up on CPR and para-EMT training, which is all good.

As with so much of the Y2K prep, if it's a 7 (or the Rose Canyon fault finally kicks loose), I'll be ready, and if it's less, I'll still have significantly improved my skills and will have lots of supplies. Still don't have a solid Plan C for an 8+ yet, so work continues...

Cool, Mac, ya got it figured out, win-win, your employer is fortunate :) Now if everybody was as sensible and skill-hungry as you, there would be no 8+ ... Real curious, looking forward to your report. Thanx

Leska -

Just read through the "Look What Portland's Planning" thread. I think I now know where my Plan C (relocate) will end up. 8-}]

Mac, you are more than welcome! Oh, such schemes for Yourdon Land up here. But time & money are short. If you want to visit, let us know and we'll show you around (provided not on 24/7 hospice job). From Cape Mendocino in California up thru British Columbia, Canada -- Cascadia! -- the living is good but the winters can get cold. The Portland area is more of a temperate rain forest Nov-Feb, usually about two weeks of sub-freezing temps w/ snow & ice, but some years not a single flake. Seattle area colder by about 80 and even wetter. Olympia, WA really beautiful. Victoria, BC, paradise, but high taxes. The San Juan Islands the ultimate in summer time. Portland as a city is lovely & activist and fascinating. The outlaying suburbs gorgeous. Quality of life high, housing too expensive, growth explosive. If ya like water, come on up ;-D
