I don't have a huge yard or any of that but I've got 100 bars, restaurants and stores within a 15 minute walk, a world class subway system, and beautiful architecture. It's what I prefer. However there's so many times that I wish I had a nice and quiet house with a huge yard. Unfortunately it's one or the other. If only we got paid the money to have a house in both locations.
    I too wish for both but settle to live like Fyredup (only a 3 mile commute though) and visit DC every Memorial Day weekend. Love DC restaurants and the number of things to do. never found a day where we got bored in the last 14 years of the annual mecca.

      I was thinking of what to post to that, but nothing I had was nearly this good!

        Nice one!
        I am now a past chief and the views, opinions, and comments are mine and mine alone. I do not speak for any department or in any official capacity. Although, they would be smart to listen to me.

          You laugh- my truck carries a ladder that could handle that red-shuttered window. LOL

              Ves

              In my department, there is a good possibility that the VES will be performed by one member vs. two. Is this ideal? No, but it is our reality.
              When one member performs VES at a window where there is only concrete below him/her, they butt(heal) their own ladder by placing the butt of the ladder in a crack in the sidewalk, up against a mailbox, up against a tree, the base of a nearby building, etc... With my Truck, the OVM perfoms the VES and he/she operates alone initially. As I said, is this ideal? No, but it is our reality.
