Here we come!
« on: August 19, 2009, 08:32:21 pm »

Hello everyone,
I just wanted to introduce myself, I hope this is the proper forum...
My name is Jay, I'm a 26 year old former Marine and a proud Texan.  I have been interested in the free state project for almost a year now, but until recently I didn't have the courage to ask my Mexican/Italian fiance what she thought about selling our house and moving across the country.  I only mention her racial heritage as a light hearted hint at her natural temperament which is not exactly mild.  In any case, the economy is in the can, she is getting sick of her job, and there just isn't much of an alternative for her here, not to mention, Round Rock (our home town,) is one of the few places left in this country that is still a seller's market for real estate.  My lady started talking about moving somewhere new and just “starting over.”  I grew a pair, held my breath, puckered the old starfish and blurted out my desire to move to New Hampshire. To my surprise, the little woman was all for it, even enthusiastic about it. Long story short, we plan to move next summer. Look out New Hampshire, you got two more Free Staters on the way.

That's great!  I hope you've signed the statement of intent.  When the move date gets closer and you've nailed down where you're landing, post so that we can help you move in and get to know you. 

Before you make the move, consider coming up for PorcFest or the Liberty Forum.  It's a great way to see the state and meet the porcupines.  I liked going to PorcFest because I found people like me in the project and that made me more sure I wanted to move.

what did she like about the idea?

Well, while my fiance is very pro-liberty, the idea of moving somewhere new and different is what is most appealing to her. She has lived in Texas all here life and wants to experience four seasons instead of two.
