Good to hear, Shooter! Sounds like a plan...
Keep in touch, let us know when the time nears.

Yeah, I will.

Seems like a long way off but the holidays will pretty much occupy us into mid-Jan. I don't expect the job market to heat up much until then.

We just had to make the same decision. We picked the east side. We really liked the Coral Springs/Parkland area. Good schools, real nice area. We move down Dec. 3rd. We have a 7 month lease until we can find a house in that area.

Hey guys,

Looks like the job search is looking pretty good. If I make all the right connections and fate smiles upon me you might have a new neighbor (lucky you).

Been doing a lot of research on living areas. What do you think of Palm Harbor / Tarpon Springs areas? I know some of you live in St. Pete. I don't want to live in the ol' fogey districts, but I want to be close enough to the beaches AND have good schools.

Looking into Marinas, it looks like I can get a rack and store for about 200 - 250 / month. This might be more feasable than the no wake zones from hell I hear about FLA.

I have 2 boys and live in Ft Lauderdale, I also lived in Tampa for 7 years and my wife was an elementary school teacher for 9 years. The public school is better than any private school in our area. Having live in both Tampa and South Florida, all I can say is we will never move we have no BUGS! Tampa is great but lots of bugs. Real Estate is cheaper in Tampa(I'm a Realtor) but Broward county has no more land available and investment wise cannot be beat, our homes have been going up 20-30% a year. Call me at (954)309-2222 and I'll give you the scoop.

Great to hear, Shooter. Palm Harbor is one of the nicer areas around here. I know many people whom I work with that live there and love it. Tarpon is a little ways off the 'beaten path' but it has it's advantages. It's generally a little bit less costly to live there, and land is more available.

I'll just need to know the sketch in regards to boating. Where to keep it, where the idle zones are, etc...
