Well, welcome to the Great Northwest!! I'll be only about a 70 minute drive up the road!

johnnyk:

Looks like you're going to land right in the middle of the warm country. Not too many trees around the Tri-Cities but its a great place and with the 3 cities there's lots of places to shop and things to do. It seems to be a constantly growing area.

The good thing, in addition to the shooting that you already know is available to you, is that you won't be far from the Blues, the Cascades, Oregon or even Idaho. So shooting and or hunting shouldn't be a problem.

Sounds like you've got a good job and already have some good shooting spots lined up, so now you just need to explore all of the new stuff.

Welcome to Washington

Don't think it'll be any warmer than it is in NC. At least there won't be as much humidity. Looking forward to this adventure. Thanks for all the support guys. JohnnyK.

Don't bet on it. It was 105-108 degrees in Moses Lake last week and we are 70 miles north of the Tri-Cities! The Tri-Cities are often a few degrees warmer.

Hanford, just outside of the Tri-Cities, often posts some of the highest temps in the country outside of Death Valley and a few spots in Arizona.

But it is a DRY heat!

Yeah, I've heard it's called the Washington "desert" in this area. I think the change of scenery/latitude will do my family and I good. Does this mean I'll have to re-work loads up for my rifle(s) because of the differences in atmospheric conditions?
I had an offer to move to the Texas, Ft. Worth area but couldn't convince the wife. She kept saying "we can't move to an area just because the hunting is good!" I told here she was right, there's got to be a little shooting in there somewhere!! LOL! I was trying to psych her up for the Arizona, New Mexico area when this Washington job came up. I told her about all the game out there and believe it or not she said I'd probably need a bigger rifle. I just about fell out! What a woman.
I am so ready! JohnnyK.

For those of us who live here, the wide open vistas and the beauty of the desert make up for the lack of trees and green, but it is a BIG change from the South East.

I'm a South Carolinean born and bred, but the NorthWest is home now.

I'd pick the TriCities over Dallas-Fort Worth area every time, though I have lived in Texas and could live there again, just not in the DFW area.

As for re-working loads, I'm not sure, I've never made that kind of move!

The TriCities is a great area, good schools, lots of growth.

We are going to have to have a Long Range Hunting Saturday, and all meet somewhere!

Bill
