We will be leaving Florida on the morning of September 30, 2008,arriving in OKC in time for an October first move in. We found an apartment in NW. OKC for a reasonable (for us) rent.We will be walking distance to groceries, shopping ect. That is a HUGE plus since we only have one car and one of our goals was to find a place to live where we could reduce our auto use.

It was a toss up between Oklahoma City and Tulsa, hubby left it up to me since I am Mrs. Breadwinner.

We will be bringing our two girls with us and we are a homeschooling family so we wanted a state that has a low cost of living and very friendly homeschooling laws. I love it that Oklahoma is the only state in the country where homeschooling is protected in the state constitution. Lots of homeschooling groups for neuro-typical kids too. We will be looking for a homeschooling group for special needs students.

Yes, it's getting close. Are you all driving out, or flying and shipping your car? I know I was very excited when it got that close to our move. It was a LOT of work, but so nice once it was all over. Good luck, and keep us posted!

Very exciting! I hope the packing and moving goes smoothly. I just moved here over the last weekend - from the Tulsa area, and I think you made a great choice. (I also have special needs kids, though I don't homeschool.)

Hey, welcome to Oklahoma (soon)!

Maybe this intense heat will wear off the day you plan on unpacking. : )

Have a safe trip.

We are doing this on a VERY TIGHT budget. In fact, once we get there we will be looking at thrift shops for furniture we can use. We are just going to ship a few items, like our one working computer and maybe some clothes. We are just going to pack what we can in my mid-sized car and go.The vast majority of our stuff is either from thrift stores or put it together yourself from Walmart, so it will be cheaper on us to do it that way.

I am a certified nursing assistant who will be needing a job, but I expect to find work quickly.

Thank you to all who have replied! Really I am just saying a prayer that our car holds up enough to get us there. We ran up our credit card again this summer paying for a lot of repair work (no choice about that) it spent quite a bit of time in the shop, leaving us with no transportation for that time. I think this was what finally made us decide to make the move now. We realized that it really is no longer economically feasable for us to stay here in small town Florida. To move any where else in Florida would mean a dramatic increase in COL. Not to mention a miserable husband (he hates Florida anyway).
