From everyone on in the complexes on Parson's and 60, they claim it was right behind them.

You're right. I'm outright lying. I have nothing better to do with my time.

I'm sure the news will be all over the police being all up and down 60, and a copter flying around at night. Brilliant suggestion. So, once the pictures go up, what will your excuse be?

I dont really care about your "picture proof". You're making it out to be a bigger issue than it is. I was just down there an hour ago, saw no cops or helicopter.

Anyway, have fun. I'll enjoy my quiet, nice neighborhood here in brandon while you are clearly miserable here.

Just stating facts? Sorry they bother you. I never remember any dumpster body stories the 20 years I lived in Tampa though... Nor did I see half as many bums .

Hi!
I was the one who started this whole thread.. just got back and ended up getting a house out in Lithia Ridge -- zip is 33596. We stayed up in Brandon at the Holiday Inn Express. We did travel down 60 quite a bit, and the areas went from good to bad, but we didn't see a lot of crime in the short time we were there. We were a little overwhelmed how big Brandon/Tampa was. So many lanes on the highways!!!

Anyways, thanks again for everyone and all their help! We'll be there next weekend!

Uhhhh...... The biggest complaint about Florida traffic is that there isn't enough lanes on the highways.....

Its only 50 minutes if you take city streets. There's an expressway that goes from Brandon to Tampa, my husband says it takes 20-30 mins to get from home to base.

Did you guys just move again? Ironic as this is.. I haven't been on here since before we moved and now that I think about it, there was the corner house with AK plates and they just moved away. I am anti-social so I never went to say, "hey, where are you moving to..."

Yep! That was us! I just sent you a message...

Also, I wanted to mention about the crime stuff they were arguing about on here. In the 1 year we've been here, TWICE my kids elementary school was on lock down because of some "criminal in the area".

The second time, I had run to the store and come back to cops in the neighborhood, a helicopter circling around, etc. They said a criminal escaped (from where? The jail isn't close) and ran into our neighborhood. Long story short he hopped the fence into the kids school and they arrested him there. But all the kids were plastered to the windows and saw it. Talk about a nightmare. It was pretty scary.
