I am still alive and ticking.  Last year I retired from IL DOT and fled the state with my pension.  Took a job with Wisconsin DOT (NE Madison) and living just off I-39 near Lodi.   Have lied pretty low in the last year.

Good to see you back Steve. If it wasn't for grandkids I think I could convince my wife to do the same. Are you still involved with Tri County? Whats the riding like around Lodi?

Our daughters live in Galena and Madison so they were not keeping us in Byron.
I am not involved with Illinois organized snowmobiling anymore but I am keeping in touch with people and attending events. I will be at the Tri-County snow show next month Sept 8th.
Never got to ride around here much last year but it is pretty good, nice rolling terrain and good grooming.

Congrats on the retirement Andy.  I am sure you will keep yourself busy.

Went to Heydays last weekend, there was a large crowd.

I hear ya.... I'm actually getting close to a job change, after 23 years at the same place. Owners are splitting apart and I've been offered part of the company, but I'm really not looking to be partners in a failing business right now. Got a couple irons in the fire, but I wanted to see how things were going to shake out. I'd prefer staying here, as is, if that was at all possible. I enjoy the freedoms I have right now with my kids in three travel sports and sled season upon us  :blush:

Hey!  Welcome to the club...Denise and I retired in January.  We each had 32+ years with AmFam in Madison

Was up your way last weekend helping FOM's widowed GF with a few things.  Stopped in to SS sport and had lunch at the Lazy Ace.

Good to hear from you.  I'll probably spend a little more time up north from now on.  I'm really getting used to this not going to work thingy and watching the wife and boys head off to school.  Now If I can get this deferred house maintenance caught up and Uncle Sam can get my full annuity figured ou tI'd actually plan  a weekend(OK, forget about restricting to the weekend-hard to get out of habits) "retired dudes" getaway.
