Where is Moriarty? How far away is it to the base? I am getting so confused as to where to move. We have until tomorrow to say yes we will take the job, and we are getting nowhere.

Moriarty is about 35min from the Central/Tramway intersection... so about 45min. from base.

JUstme, first of all, don't worry about where to move yet. Calm down and the two of you need to decide if this is something you want to do. Think of it as an adventure. Once you decide you DO want to undertake the move, then wait till you get there to look and make final decisions on where you want to move to. We're pretty much deciding on the Moriarty or Edgewood areas to concentrate our search. You never know though. By the time we move there, it may change. I'm looking at land for sale now, but even found a really cool home, made of masonry and a two story at that for a pretty good price. I love the inside, even though it's smaller than what we have now...we could downsize a little. Just decide about the job, then the rest will follow.

You may want to look south as well. Down US 25 by Belen. The commute might be similar.

Hi Jstme - the southwest side of the base is where your husband is going to work?

Janet and Jstme

My husband works on the west side of the base, by the airport. From exit 187 on I40 (the Edgewood exit) its about 35-40 min to his office. If you were looking at Edgewood, you would need to factor in the time it takes to get to the interstate, so that is why I put the commute time that way. For us, its about 7 minutes to the interstate. It can vary widely depending on where in Edgewood you would look for a house.

Two of the Moriarty interstate exits are 194 and 196. Just add 7-10 minutes to the Edgewood commute time to figure out how long a drive it is from Moriarty.

Lexco and Martinez Rd (the map rybert posted) is about, 10 min (maybe 15? rybert help me out here) to the Edgewood I-40 on ramp. I have been down to that neighborhood once and it did not seem "that far" but some people think it is. I have a friend whose house is/was (not sure) on the market down there and she is happy to be closer in to "town".

Hope this helps.

I know its a lot to figure out. The market has a ton of diverse inventory out here right now so finding a house is not something to worry about before making the decision. If you decide to move out here, you will find something.

Yeah... 10-15 is fair.

However, once you get off of Route 66 and onto Lexco... snow tends to stay on the ground and mud gets deep. We moved away from there about 5 years ago... it may be paved now.

Part of Lexco is paved. Not all. I went to the friend's house in August and she lived on some road parallel to Lexco, south of Martinez, and it was a bit muddy. I can see where the snow melt can get you.

Ok, so 10-15 in the non snow months!

Probably Chavez Rd. I would def. recommend a four-wheel drive for the mud on that road.
