Housing is worse than DFW. Rentals are up almost 50%. No water and nothing but heat.
You can't find a house to save your life and if you do find a house you are going to pay way to much for what you get.

Bright side you can hang with Roy and I.

Does this mean there's a job opening in Young County? Where can I send my resume? I'd almost work for free if I could move out that way.

Homestead I have, our family place is just west of Newcastle. My wife's parents live on lake Graham and I think with some persuading, I could get my wife to move back. If I find anything even resembling a decent job, I would be there in a heartbeat! I am absolutely wore out from living in the murderplex my whole life.

You wont find that here and your boys will have to get use to city life which maybe very hard . Nothing entertaining out here at all except movies , bowling and visits to the mall which is really boring ! You have to go 100 miles or more to fish or hunt if your lucky to find a place that didn't cost an arm and leg . My family lived in Lubbock from time I was 11 months old until I was 11 yrs old . Moved us to Winnsboro . I loved the area , going fishing several times a week and going out hunting with my best friend I met . What I did not like and hated was all the punk bully kids in that town that all they wanted to do was fight and be bullies . Now some are dead , some in prison , some have been in prison and are out now but not having a good life . Town was boring as heck by the time I joined the Army to get away , then after the army moved to midland and been here since . When I moved here it was a nice small middle size town and I've watched it grow , I've seen it when there was a bust and nearly became a ghost town then build back up . Now it's bigger than I've ever seen it and it's not a nice small middle town anymore and Odessa is even bigger and worse . Got a few yrs to retire and then i'm out of here for good ! The advice i'll give you is if you move back to Odessa you better hope your boys don't get bored and get messed up with drugs , gangs and end up in jail or worse thing in a bad car accident from all the crazy drivers out here . We got people from all over the USA here now and a lot come from places like California where they think driving here in Texas is a piece of cake and they drive like crazy . Odessa at one time had the highest crime rate in Texas and the highest death rate from killings . Now you really need to think it over hard ! Do you really want to bring two young boys into this kind of territory and take a chance of them going astray and ending up in trouble some way or other while your out making that good money you can't refuse wheich may last for what , maybe 10 more yrs then it might go away cause there will be another bust in the Permian basin ! If you lived here before i'm sure you've heard about that and how bad it can get !? Maybe you wont have problems , perhaps your boys will grow up being great adults . But.... , What if........ ? Are you willing to take that chance over some really good money that sounds tempting and give up your place and freedom you have now ?? Better think real hard and put your family all first !!


Sounds like a "Garden Spot"

If the money is that good move back, your obviously considering it, buy 50-100 acres and have a 10-12 acre pond!

In the Odessa area, that would be a 10-12 acre dry hole in the ground.

Awesome maybe we can knock out a few cold ones before you leave. I've got a buddy that has a place in that area Norman Stovall.
