Just Kidding! I really do wish you and your family the best. If there is any way I can help with any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

All I can say is I'm glad I'm signing up my 18 year old son for the carpentry course when we move to OK!!!!

And... You'll get there before us and grab up the good deals.

Yes, being an absent landlord would have a few bad ramifications... I've seen what people can do to rental houses.

The market here is pretty awful too. We under priced our place by $35K hoping for a quicker sale. It will hurt a little, but will allow us to accomplish our ultimate goals.
We'll struggle a bit, but the way the local economy has been here, we'll be struggling a bit anyway.

Keep us all posted... I'm especially interested in hearing your opinions on OK when you get there... Unless we sell before then... (crossing fingers)

I don't think DH will last six months either. I don't think he thinks so either.

Don't undersell your son... My father was a General Contractor, and his best advice was work with your head, not your back...
And I worked for him, Summers and after school, then full-time until I was almost 22... Before I heeded his advice...
Yeah, the burn-out is sort of the same, but different... At least my back hurts less... MY brain may hurt more but, I'll get over it.

Good! The alternative is, PARTY at DH's house!
That's not better for anyone involved.

We just had a look at the photos....
(Thanks, Jessaka and Synopsis!)

I think We'd rather be near Bartlesville than in it...
Looks a little LARGE for our taste.

Even 30 or so minutes from there, I could make a living.

I DO like the info I get here...

Thanks,

M.

Like I said... Our timing is ALWAYS bad.
(I'd even put up with satellite Internet for THAT kind of land...)
(My son's opinion differs...)

I just checked on the map in order to find Bartlesville. That is really a nice area of Oklahoma. You would be in Green Country and Bartlesville is smaller than Tulsa, yet you still have it as a close by city. I read something nice about the city, but I only remember that after reading it I wanted to go visiting. Probably had either great shopping or great architecture. Actually, I thought it was something else that I was reading about it.
