I can't help you with that, belles, but am kinda looking at the Amarillo area myself. Have been in Lubbock several years, and time to move further north I think. I have been looking at Pampa (on internet) and plan to visit up there later this month, and check out Amarillo. Is smaller but still a nice size city for shopping, etc. Looks clean and livable, moreso than Lubbock I think.

Hopefully someone from those areas will give us some good info!

oh yeah...i definitely prefer Pampa/Amarillo area over Lubbock. Lubbock seems too "college town" ....i dont want to feel old at age 42!!
let me know how your visit goes, please!! and if you are near the small towns of White Deer, Claude, Groom, etc...please take pics...and pics of Pampa too!

I have just been reading posts/threads about Amarillo area. Have only driven through there on I40 going to wherever (AZ or NM). Am also in healthcare field, and used to work for IHS. Can't wait to take a closer look!

Have also been wanting to get a few acres for a garden, chickens and goats (nubians)! But would need to be near a larger city for work (unfortunately). Still looking for a way out of healthcare--another topic.

Yes, will take pics, but don't have a clue how to download them! Am afraid it will just be taking flat liner pics where land meets the sky...

My old roomate settled in Pampa after living in Dallas for awhile and they LOVE it. She describes it as a great little home town!

I am not a nurse, tried to be, got into nursing school, but the Nursing Director didn't like me taking my own "initiative".

What is so great about correctional health? Had four inmates come into the clinic the other day, with only ONE guard and flipped out. Told big fat guard to get them out NOW, until he can do the right thing and bring more coverage. An all woman clinic with NO security, like sitting ducks, ugh.

I would like alpacas too, but need to get situated somewhere on a few acres first. Would love to find another income source, so sick and tired of having to please other people, and not at all good at it anymore! Have thought of just doing medical transcription for awhile, since I live on a shoestring anyway, even though I make alot of money. And type very fast, know the terminology of course, and could work from home. Could easily get by on 40K/yr. Am very ready to get out and do some work in the sunshine and fresh air.
