We are renting an apartment on Fleming Island so that we have more time to look for a house. Won't have the Cat down there until Winter, but that is still boating season down there!
That's where I'd live in the Jax area. We did some work there last year. Great looking area out by Doctor's Lake too. Whitey's Fishcamp was our spot to eat up that way.

The area where Argyle Forest Road, and Old Middleburg Road crosses is really booming. I drove up there today to check out a Home Depot we will be working on next week

All this construction is right on that corner. After I got home, I had to hurry up and get a proposal together for a Panda Express that's right on that corner. It's funny, right when I was pulling up to HD, I called Debbie to ask her if any blueprints came in today. She told me four came in, and I was hoping it was that Panda in Jax. It was, so I asked her what the address was on it. It was right about where I was sitting when I talked to her.

I'd think about moving to Jax, but from here I can cover Jax, Daytona, Orlando, and south to Vero Beach easily.

Orange County busted me for having my boat in the front yard so I found a good storage place in Christmas near 95 to move the boat to since I boat mainly that way. Where do you get out at usually? And I think I've seen you towing your boat a time or two...
Ponce inlet (disappearing island), St. Johns river and lake county lakes.

Will be going to the island this weekend, I'll send you PM.

Are there strict rules about keeping the boat on a trailer at the house? or is that just orange county?

Welcome to town! The Jacksonville Performance Boat Club (JPBC) meets the second Wednesday of each month at the Florida Tackle and Gun Club at 7pm. Typically we have 1 or 2 events a month on the water. We've got a cookout/raft up going on this Saturday that should be fun. I'll send you a PM with more contact information.

Boomer where you want to live in jax has to do with where you are working. Crossing the river to get to work adds 20 to 30 mins to commute. What part of town are you going to be working? If downtown I would look at Fleming Island or Ortega If southside I would look Mandrin, Nocatee or Pondre Vedra
