    Glad you like the plate! I tried getting a couple of others, but some were taken, and 1 they would not issue. I believe someone else here in NC has BUHBYENY already.

    I remember Crowley Foods (Sour Cream, milk, etc?) Didn't they have a dairy up north, a little north and west of Watertown, on the end of Lake Ontario?

    Well, I'm glad you got out of there, and welcome to NC! Now, do us a favor and tell your conservative NY gun loving friends to get the heck out of there and come on down. The water's fine. Then tell any NY liberals you know what a bunch of redneck gun toting hillbillies we are, how hot it is in the summer and that they and all their other liberal friends should just stay home. Win-win!

    I agree completely. And believe me, my fellow like minded gun owners in NY (@ nygunforum.com) are in many cases, actively looking to get out of NY as fast as they can. I do know that I see a ton of NY car plates here in Charlotte on a regular basis. Charlotte, NC is the #1 destination for people leaving Buffalo, NY, and is the #2 destination for those moving away from Rochester. I think that when the updated census numbers come out, there are going to be a lot of shocked faces when they see how many productive people have fled NY. I am just one of them.

    Despite turning my world upside down doing everything , and moving here in 3 weeks after working out a deal, my stress level is about 80% less being down here. Life is good.
