We are moving into a new home at the end of August. It's an farm outside of Madison, WI. I now work for an engineering company in Madison doing energy consulting for commercial buildings.

I still have my thirdgen too. In the past 4 years it has accumulated a total of 0.5 miles (driven from one storage garage to the next). However, at our new house, it'll be the first time I've ever had the garage space to have it at my place. Ever since I left for college I've been in apartments.

Might as well post :), here is what happened to me after the fall of 3GO...

I sold my 1982 Camaro that ran low 12's to buy my first house (that's not entirely true, I sold the motor for a lot of money, I practically gave the car away with Prostars and a cage).
Image

After getting settled into my new house, and after having my son, I decided I didn't want to ride a sport bike anymore for several reasons. I sold my 2006 ZZR600, and purchased a 1989 Iroc Z with 89k miles on it. It was an L98 car with 2.77's, and ran 14.9's out of the box. I spent a lot of money/time getting the car to run 13.2's @ 104 mph, never was happy with it.
Image

I realized between a career and kids, I did not have the free time to spend hours a night working on a project car. The Iroc needed a new engine, transmission, rearend, paint, etc. I sold my 1989 Iroc Z to buy a 2010 Camaro SS. After test driving the 5th gen, feeling how heavy it was and seeing how small the interior was, I went to Ford to test drive a Mustang. Hands down the Mustang was the better car for me, so I bought a 2013 Mustang GT:
Image

The car runs an altitude corrected 12.37 @ 113.883 mph with a mail order tune. I am planning on throwing a centrifigal blower on it, keeping it conservative, and shooting for 11.5's (without altitude correcting).

lol.
that wasnt supposed to come off as a brag.
The house we've been renting the last few years has trees all around it. The plan was to stay here atleast one more year.
however one of the trees has been causing issues. a few weeks ago, we just came inside, me holding the newborn, and a minute later a 4" dia limb freefell 40ft (because they trimmed the lower branches) and slammed into the driveway.
They still havent finished getting an estimate for it to be trimmed.
I said fuck this.
started house hunting.


and now we have a contract on a house.

No one in their right mind buys a house right after having a newborn unless they have to. lol

so apparently.. now im buying a house. excited but terrified. this effectively dumps out my savings in the downpayment... just as i have my first kid.

getting married? piece of cake.
having/dealing with a baby? not as difficult as people make it seem.

buying a house?
OH MY FUCKING GOD I WANT TO KILL 4 DIFFRENT PEOPLE RIGHT NOW.. UGH. No one is actually listening to me. Everyone wants me to sign everything with nothing filled out.. and everytime they say "living, breathing documents" I just want to smack a bitch.
No. fucking no. when I sign something its signed. Its not changing. so go back and do what I said the first time, write it on the damn paper, and THEN I'll sign it.
ugh.

A similar thing happened to me years ago closing on a condo. The payment wasn't what they said it was going to be, and I said 'what the fuck'. They said 'no problem, we'll just do a no cost re-fi in 6 months, so just sign now. ' I was like, 'bullshit, I'm walking.'
They re-worked everything and I signed the correct documents the next day. So yeah, don't take their bullshit.

I'm in Omaha at the moment....just starting our Midwest tour. I just picked up a 2014 Suzuki Hayabusa. Still haven't totally opened it up to see what it can really do, lol. One of these days I'm hoping to pick up a 3rd gen to cruise around in. One of these days....

Married, 2 kids, current vehicles include a 2016 Suburban, 2017 Subaru Legacy in AK and a 2006 GMC Sierra and 1993 S10 in a shed somewhere in TN. Back working in Alaska, finally broke through to the wife the financial gains and down time (5 months on 7 months off) are worth some cold and darkness... about to find out how it goes, winter will be here within a month :shock:
