We live in on the OR coast now, but seriously looking at a permanent retirement move to Oak Harbor, WA, home of WI NAS. I've been retired for awhile, wife will probably continue substitute teaching and tutoring. I'm Vietnam era Navy vet.
There have been some postings elsewhere about the jet noise. We've visited during those times. We thought it was kinda cool. Of course, that's not the same as living there, so I can understand it being an issue for some. We're more concerned about medical care, but other than that, we find it very desirable and beautiful. Kinda isolated from the crazy progressiveness of Seattle.
But noise aside, anyone have any experience about living there?
Thanks

I was stationed at NAS Whidbey Island for 8 years and loved it there. Would not live there now due to the state politics but the area was very nice and lots to do in that part of the country.
