Thanks alot guys...this does mean alot to me
I talked to my co-boss, and though he doesn't want to see me go, he understands what it is I need to do. But he was a bit confused when I told him that if the position was not available I would stay here and hope that a promotion would bring more money to compensate for a high cost of living. He asks "So what is it...family or money?" I told him..both. If I stay at my same payscale and go to a region with a lower COL, then I in effect get a raise, which allows me to get a quality home in a quality neighborhood. "So, you want a house of your own?" Yes, because a judge will favor better if I had one instead of an apartment. "Ah" he says. So I think he understands. I don't want to leave the company as they have done right by me, got me my start in the simulations field. I have nothing against ANYONE at my worksite...afterall, our site only has a total of 17 people, and this includes all the techs, engineering, and management...and we all get along great.
So we will see what happens.
EDIT: The position is at Dobbins AFB, and I think it was an ex Martin-Marietta facillity.
