Yes, I'm moving to Iowa. Here's the story in a nutshell:
At the end of this month, my family and I will be moving to Iowa. I'll be working at the Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport as their Access Services Librarian. I start on Feb 5. We'll be driving out on Jan 26.
I had interviewed with Palmer in February of last year, before I was full-time at Franklin Township. They picked a candidate who was more local to them. He lived in Iowa City, which is about an hour drive from Davenport. However, the University of Iowa restructured their libraries and he was able to get a job at the University in Iowa City so he no longer needed to commute.
Palmer re-contacted me to see if I was still interested in the job. I was. They flew me back out in December. I was the only candidate.
The money is about the same as I was making at Franklin. But, that money will go a lot further in Iowa than it does in NJ. Also, we'll be only a few hours drive from family.
I'll still be publishing Electric Velocipede. In fact, I hope to do more in the publishing field now that my living expenses will be less.
It's exciting and scary, but all good.
This means that there will be a few week period where I'll uncontactable. I'll post about that here right before that starts.

Pursuant to the move to Iowa, I won’t be able to continue my Verizon service there, so if you’ve been using the evzine [at] verizon [dot] net e-mail address, you’ll have to update it to evzine [at] aol [dot] com or editor [at] electricvelocipede [dot] com.
Thanks for your time and attention!

So I drove to WI on Thursday (930 miles in one day...I don't recommend it), went to IA and back on Friday, and flew back to NJ today. I figure I put in about 2500 miles in the past three days. That's almost Jay Caselberg travel numbers.
It's weird to be moving away. When we came here, we didn't know anything. Now we know so much more (like what's at stake for example) so it's almost more scary to move back than it was to come here.
Movers come on Thursday. The whole family will be traveling to WI to stay with family while our stuff is moved. My laptop is in WI, so I won't be able to respond to e-mail very well. I'll have a computer through Wednesday, and then nothing for a few days.
So, the long and short of it is don't feel bad if I don't get back to you right away.
