    OSC,

    Its some beautiful country around there, and a nice lake to the north, but the name escapes me at the moment.

    The following is a link to the top 20 employers from their Chamber of Commerce web site.

    I would suggest taking a vacation there for a week or so before deciding to move anywhere.

    Regards,

            lol yeah pretty much,. i am sick of florida the heat is unbearable that land scape is just flat and the there is little to no work, at times i think moving to florida was the worst thing i have ever done. now don't get me wrong now, there are desent things about florida, i am just growing very tired of it. i have always loved the mountains, but if there is no work there then theift and other crimes will be high, and that is what i am tring to avoid.

                  You could move back here OSC but just not Prince Georges County this time

                  That's what I love about this place.

                  1 hour drive you're in the Blue Ridge mountains

                  2 hours you're at the Ocean beaches

                  10 minute drive you're standing on Capital Hill

                  20 minute drive you're in Crapital Frieghts

                  Plenty of work around here still

                      I can't vouch personally for it........but I heard tenessee has issues with their school systems and the kids that are in them.....

                      but I can't say that for sure.

                      That's everywhere IMO. I think it was just personal experience for one couple.....and they moved back to ohio.

                          I have seen from your posts that you have a background in driving. If you are interested in driving there are all kinds of opportunities an the Albany, NY area, everything from end dumps on construction sites to dump trucks to dump trailers to freight hauling. If you are interested in heavy construction there are also many jobs available from laborer to carpenters to foremen in every trade. We can hardly find people who can put two words together to form a sentence. When we finally do, most don't know which end of the hammer to hold.
