SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Guys, I need to hear some FP success stories for a change. I know Hamsandwich has some. I'm sure others have theirs too. Also, I'll tell you my plans, and then you can tell me how realistic they are. Or, rather, where's the catch (cuz it seems too good to be true). Ok, I'll do an unopposed FP residency, hopefully with a rural track (if I can wrestle a rural track position away from an American grad, of course). Then I'll move to a very rural area like northern Minnesota or, if I can persuade my wife and kids, out west to Wyoming, Utah or Montana. I'll live in a small but growing town. There are only FPs in town, maybe 2 or 3 of us in a small group practice. I work 4 days a week making around 130 grand a year. I also coach the high school cross country team. I don't have a boss. My life is great. Where's the catch? How is that not the perfect life? Is the plan unrealistic?
