No! You suck. (kidding, I'm jealous)

I want to fly helo med-evac, however, simply obtaining the commercial add-on ain't gonna be enough to land the job. And at 46, with kids, mortgage, etc. It is difficult to pay for the experience.

I do understand the Florida delima. Good Luck.

hello, every city and state has it's ups and downs, Hi guam guy, very familiar with guam and hope to go back for a visit. Boston, too many taxes, and snotty people, and the Kennedy's.

California, earthquakes. New York, congested, smoke, smog and polluction, too many people, Japan, tooooooo, many people, Mexico, dirty water, Ireland, wanted to go there for st, paddy's day, couldn[t get a seat on a flight and found out 700 people were arrested for disorderly conduct, Saudi Arabia, must wear a scarf and no skirt if you are female, Las Vegas, couldn't live there, ( I love it) would lose all my money on roulette wheel, ( excellent shows)! Thankgod I dont live in Tornado alley, have not expericecned that yet, and hope never to to.

Switzerland, beautiful, but need tons of bucks, ok where do where go to be avoided of natural disasters? And people climb mount everest and nearly die! Go see it in the Imax movie! Good luck in the Hurricanes! We call it Typhoon!

MissKittyKat, ( Hey I had to ask 3 people for the typhoon answer)

Have fun!

gary...


Not too sure you are familiar with the military life style, but one can't move on a while. And you are kind of sent where the needs of the service are.

So, having been here for the last two hurricane seasons...

I really love Florida, but during hurricane season, just to reiterate... FLORIDA SUCKS!!!

AA.. I will trade you some of my helo hours for some of your ME hours!!!

Heck no! Not many other places can you walk out your front door with the view in my avatar several times a week!

I'll take the slight chance of having a direct hit from a hurricane rather than the 100% chance of a sht winter up north. F that.....

Then again, if I had a blue tarp on my roof for the past year like some still have I may think differently!

I must agree that the Florida sky is spectacular almost everyday.

It's funny...

Everytime I see a hurricane hit Florida, I wonder how I would feel if my airplane was in harms way.

Never give a house a second thought.

SLIGHT CHANCE... slight chance???



In Pensacola, we have been in the sights of the last there major hurricanes.

I love the area, but when you live in fear of loosing all your possessions, you livelyhood, and your financial future...

once again... Floirda (ok Pensacola) sucks ass...

miss kitty, you rock, the rest suck.

yes, typhoon, strongest winds in the world, Typhoon Paka! Guam...236 mph.

Mt. washington, something like 212...weeeeeak.

typhoons bring big swells, means big waves on gnarly reefs!

oh yea, Florida is great, good cuban sandwich, ok waves, plenty of humidity,
no smoking anywhere, hot chicks(all nationalities), killer sunsets, direct flights to CR, lots of good ritas ON THE BEACH!

I challange you all to live here for a year, buy property, and watch it come within 20 miles of total personal and financial distruction.

florida has its good and its bad, mostly bad (i'm an ohio boy). but it might be nice having a few winters w/out snow :)

anyone want to take bets as to when daytona gets slammed w/ a hurricane? we've missed ALL of them (windy but clear today) so far. are we just biding our time til one hits or are east-coast-of-florida hurricanes rare?

Wow, well as great as the Guam typhoon sounds at 236 mph I think I'll pass. I work with a guy that was an military brat at the base for that. From what I've heard about that one, anyone who was not terrified at the time is full of it. Being stuck through direct hits by Frances and Jeanne were enough for me. The worst part was nailing sheets of plywood on rickety ladders in 95 F humidity. Or maybe it was the 2 weeks afterwards with no power while cutting fallen trees in intense humid heat. No thanks. I'm heading back west to CO as soon as I can. FL is nice from Feb-May. The rest of the time is miserable unless you're from the northeastern states. They seem to like this place for some reason. If you're big into fishing it's probably paradise though. The women in SoCal are hotter and cooler too. Sorry for the vent :D It's hurricane season, I'm irritated, and I have to work tomorrow!

Well we've all got plenty of opportunity. Katrina is going to go beat the hell out of New Orleans or MS, but there's a couple of other waves on the way that will make the next couple of weeks interesting for all of us in FL.

Amen, Flic1!

Besides the sunsets/sunrises, there is nothing like looking for dolphins each morning as I am getting into the car.

We can never know for certain about direct hits, must take our chances. I had a hurricane wipe out my house in the suburbs of Philadelphia, (H. FLoyd in 1999) yet -knock on wood- managed to skirt damage from hurricanes this year and last in Florida.
