So, I've accepted a job in Madison, WI and will be leaving Hawaii in about 3 weeks. I've been searching for a job on the mainland for several months and in a quasi-planning mode, but now that it's actually happening, I'm a bit overwhelmed and very excited.

I'm fortunate to have found a job that will pay for all of my moving expenses, so we'll be able to move our cars and most of our household goods. I had kind of expected to have to sell everything and start over, so this is a nice development for us.

I was hoping to find a job in the West, a bit closer to my family (CA, WA, ID & UT) but at least I'll be on the same land mass!

Safe travels! And good luck at the new job.

You'll be near several other Hatrackers in Madison, you know.

Exciting! Moving always bugs the crap out of me, but I very much enjoy the feeling of being moved in to a new place. Good luck in WI, I've heard very nice things about it.

Good luck.

Madison is actually quite a nice place to live, and it really is a bit of a Hatrack nexus. If you'd like, shoot me an email and I'll hook you up with some local info; we've been here for about ten years now.

Yikes and congrats. One of your posts is the original reason I joined (or tried to join) Hatrack (back when apparently new registrations weren't allowed)--so it's funny for me that you will now be mainland maui babe.
