Let's all move to Colorado... during the summer, then Texas spring and fall! (well and winter if we ever get one)
KC, been there done that. DD took off to Mississippi to stay with a guy she met on the internet for a few months to "visit" I did everything I could to get her to stay. Tried to do background checks on him, etc. My dad who is an ex-cop, called the sherriff's office down there, said "this is Officer Noel..." they looked him up, didn't find anything on him... no record.... but anyway. She flew down stayed. I made a surprise visit on them. We have friends an hour south of where she was, that I stayed with a week, and visited DD. He, of course was a deadbeat, living off parents. She finally came home, in one piece. Scariest time of my life.
At least your DD is going with someone she knows!
