    You haven't been here in years then, Detroit is now one of hottest real estate markets in country. Housing downtown is almost impossible to find. They have a fantastic mayor and things are getting better everyday. Besides I have season tickets for MSU Football and Basketball, warbirds to fly and a Willow Run museum to build. To each his own. I love it here.

    Besides with a handle of pilotyip I have to live within 3 miles of KYIP

    Fly because you like to, if you are in it for the respect, prestige, recognition or money you may be disappointed.

    I've lived in south Florida and was bases in De-toilet for years. I'd take Michigan over Florida any day.

    I'm with you. Put in nearly 13 years in Minneapolis, I'm done with "seasons".
    You drive like my old girlfriend Running Deer Patel. She was half Indian and half Indian.
