    I live over by Wexford, just ran it a couple times in the yard/street and one time each at 2 local community parks. I travel all over this half of Pa. for my job and figured out a good spot to store the X-maxx in my truck so I hope to get bashing in all over the place!

    Now wait just a darn minute. You mean to tell me you live in Pa, and you actually have a job. (lol) I grew up in Pa when all the steel mills went to poop. When I got done with W&J I couldn't get a job in Pa for the life of me. Eventually I moved away, got a job, got married, and have never looked back.

    My wife goes back to Pa. regularly...she's from Canonsburg. I drive up there for a 3 hour visit every few years or so, but (like I say) I don't stay long. Anyway, I still root for the Steelers, Pirates, and Pittsburgh Penns, though. And, I'm glad to know someone who actually lives in Pa, and has a job too. (lol)

    Lol! That's funny!! Well it is and it isn't, it hard to get a good job around here. I went from car/bike mechanic to machinist to combine those 2 professions into a field service engineer working for a CNC machine dealership (I just drive to the broken machines now!) My office is actually right down by Canonsburg in McMurray, I love it around here, but it's tough now a days.
    And GO STEELERS!!!! Getting ready to watch the Steelers/Baltimore game. GO STEELERS!!!!

    Pittsburgh has become a huge source of jobs for high end technology. It's one of the fastest growing tech markets in the country. Right now there are 4,300 job openings, close to 1,000 paying more than $90,000.

    Have any of you been to McCullough's R/C Race track? We went to the indoor practice session about a month ago. We want to go back.

    Its supposed to warm up this week again so temp should be ok. I thought about South Park but where could we run the break in out there with no traffic. Thought about the lot by the ice skating rink but worry about traffic and then the county police chasing us out.
