Prayer Request - Jettester Moving With family to Maryland
N/A | N/A

Posted on 07/17/2006 9:52:02 AM PDT by jettester

My family and I are moving from S. Calif. to Maryland and we are on Day 4 of our drive. We spent the night in Oklahoma City and hope to land in the St. Louis area tonight. We bypassed Clinton, Oklahoma last night as I was sure I would not get a good night sleep at all there! Please pray for our safety on the road and that our vehicles survive the drive.

Best wishes for your safety on your trip to Merryland but when you get here, continue your vigilance for safety.

Stay out of Baltimore and don't go anywhere near Washington, DC.

I think you will find Maryland a lot like California. It is full of liberals. And even though we have a Republican governor he is not all that conservative. Good luck in whatever it is you will be doing here in Md.

Please register to vote.

We have 2 close races in MD and winning them both would be a major black eye for the democrats.

Are you driving a moving truck? If so, take it nice and easy on your way. If not, then enjoy the scenery as you cross this wonderful country!

PAX, huh? I just moved to DC from St. Mary's Co. in December. I miss it. The whole area is pretty conservative (but not necessarily Republican), except for the college...

Good thing you're not going north from Florida through Georgia. What with the never-ending highway repairs, three terrible accidents and the usual terrifying traffic and gridlock around Atlanta, it took me a full day and into the evening last week to get through the danged state instead of a half-day or so.

What a daymare.

Asking for angels of mercy to attend your drive and protect you from other vehicles and other vehicles from you.

Asking also for the performance and longevity of the vehicles as you come East.

Asking for times of refreshing for each body on the trip and joy to attend even when circumstances and weather are wearisome.

Stay out of Baltimore and don't go anywhere near Washington, DC.

I would add most of Prince Georges County and Waldorf to that list.

Waldorf isn't nearly as bad as most of PG County but it's no longer the town it was 20 years ago.

Are you from this area? Seriously, 85% of DC is perfectly fine, with gorgeous neighborhoods, I lived in one of them for 12 years. Baltimore is a great city, and there are millionaires living in PG county. Where are you getting your facts? Or are you living holed up in Potomac somewhere, fearful of venturing out, sending the maid to gather canned victuals from 7-11?

Yes I am, since I was age 13. I used to play and work in the Upshur Street area of NW DC around the Soldier's Home. I made deliveries to peoples houses with no thoughts of trouble. In those days, if you mouthed off to someone the worst thing that might happen is you'd get a bloody nose.

Now, I'm not sure where you get your 85% number from but other than a few protected livable pockets, the place is a gigantic slum. The once highly professional police force is now a pathetic sham. The political base is RAT driven and corrupt. The school system is one of the worst in the nation. Crime runs rampant...shall I go on?

Now, as to Baltimore, it's little more than a center core of livability called The Harbor where things are really nice. If you venture out from there you go through miles and miles of slum. Again, the same problems with another example of the lousiest school system in the nation, so bad that the state had to take it over. You can thank the inept Mayor for that one but he's just a part of the problem. RAT driven politics permeates Baltimore and their dense population is one of the main reasons we have representatives like Sarbanes and Mikulski and our vote for POTUS every 4 years is automatic RAT.

PG County..used to be a lovely county but no longer, I've lived there too. You can count them as the second reason we have the above mentioned trash for senators and an overall RAT vote for POTUS.

So, in summary, my opinions are based on facts that I have lived with for all my adult life.

I'd be interested in knowing where you get your facts.

Wanted to give you all an update on our progress today. We "landed" in Rolla which is about 100 miles outside of St. Louis; this was ok as we've been averaging over 425 miles per day so far and we are on track to get into town as planned.

I've been asked to come serve as a fellow Pastor at a church in the northwest area of Maryland (near Fredrick). My wife and I got a chance to visit and explore the area over Easter and fell in love with the nice country side and cheap (actually, cheaper) home prices. The church we'll be part of is from the SBC and is about five years old. My wife is a California girl so this will be a bigger impact for her than on me (the Navy took me everywhere and anywhere).

It looks like we are about two days out from our destination but the amount of road work we've encountered has been incredible. Narrowing down four lanes (2 each way) to 2 lanes (one each way) certainly adds a bit of stress to the driving.

Thank you for your continued prayers; when I get settled in in Maryland I'll be interested in meeting up with fellow Freepers in the area. Blessings.

(near Fredrick)

Fredrick is a beautiful area. Lots of little towns nearby too. Mt Airy comes to mind. Great school system.
