Moving to New York!

Hello,
I am moving my family from Arizona to Elmira NY in a couple of weeks! I will be working for Schweizer Aircraft. We are originally from Maine and cant wait to leave the Desert! Anyone in the area give me a shoutout as we would like to make some new friends.

I have an 04 F350 and the wife has an 05 Excursion for our 4 kids and 2 dogs.

I just wanted to say Hi!

Richard

Hey Richard! Welcome to the neighborhood, so to speak. I could shout, but you wouldn't hear me from my house. Happy moving and drive safe.

Hi Richard, I just processed your request to join the chapter and wanted to welcome you and also to wish you and your family a safe trip from Arizona. My brother and his family live in Sierra Vista as that was his last post before he retired from the Army.

I am up near Rochester so I will be a few hours north of you but hopefully we will be able to get to meet each other sometime.

Thanks I've had heat srtoke too many times! I'm tired of the desert and working outside in 110+ heat in the summer! My wife and I are from Maine and want our kids to grow up in a small town environment.

Update on the move, heavy weights, springs etc

Hello,

I just finished my 2 week training at Sikorsky/Schweizer and start my inspection job on Monday. Looks like some good opportunities there and I am excited to work on Black Hawks and Sea Hawks again.

Our trip took 5 days.
No problems except my wifes excursion cooling system didn't hold pressure, but it never lost coolant either, coolant temp maxed at 225 and oil temp 272.

I drove her excursion with our 4 kids and anything else that would fit in it, and my enclosed car hauler full of our stuff, 65 to 70 mph.The trailer weighed 9480 lbs. I had a weight distribution hitch and the rear axle had 6300 lbs on it! If you have looked at my other posts you would know I installed some V and P code f350 springs on it. It pulled awesome and was not frieghted. We weighed in at 19870 lbs and the EX engine is stock and pulled like a dream! Plenty of power 10.8mpg average and It really went well.

I didn't pull the big trailer with my f350 because of the lift, but my wife pulled it with the 2 dogs and bed full of tools/boxes/ clothes washer (all under a shell) and her sister while pulling a completely full uhaul 6x12 enclosed trailer with 2 motorcycles, 30gal compressor dryer,freezer etc and got 15.3 mpg.
So over all not bad.

We found a nice house to rent in a good part of Elmira and just got the phone/internet hooked up today.

Does anyone know if the local Ford dealer is any good, or any nearby?

Gonna be chilly this weekend but I like it.

Thanks all for the welcome posts. I do wish it would warm up a little bit!

Does anyone know if there is a good Ford dealer around the Horseheads area that knows diesels well?

Thanks
Richard
