Hello and hope all is well. After 42 years of California, I am now situated in Orange Park, Florida (Clay County) in an area known as Fleming Island Plantation on Fleming Island (just south of Jacksonville, FL). I am also just starting to look for work and am considering part time Construction Project Management along with my own company's (YO-topia Consulting) projects that I am starting to book for this year.

As you probably know, I had to sell my Bass Kickboat before the move. I have not been fishing since February and here in Florida, gators and snakes are common at the banks of the water, so to resolve that I am very excited to say that I have purchased a Bass Boat! Jonesing to get out on the water!

If you go to http://www.yotopia.com/bassboat.htm all the information and great photos of the boat are available for your viewing! Give me a call some time at my new number (904) 891-1988 and please stay in touch, as I will try to do also. Also, anytime you are coming to Florida remember you have a place to stay!

Missing what I was used to in California, but not California it's self. Slowly I am getting used to Florida, but the hot humid summer is right around the corner. Also the Thunderstorms, Lightning and Hurricanes. I am ready for it, excited about my changes in my life and look forward to each and every morning.

From the East Coast to those on the West Coast (now represented), take care and please stay in touch!

Very Truly,

John Stangle
