Well like I said, it is a great place to live. And I'm sure it pays a lil' better in MD than maybe PA job wise, but as with any job, you get paid for your education and skill level on a job. It kinda balances out between your job pay and cost of living, higher paying area = high cost of living and you still have
in your account at the end of the month!
And what's funny, is where I live now is almost a 3 hour drive to OC. And once you've been to OC a couple times, you'll find its really not much and pay out the ass to stay for a week. The money you drop to stay there a week, you could go on a cruise to the Caribean Islands. I'm going to miss MD in a way, but I'll be back enough for friends and family, its only an hour or so drive. It all depends on where you live in MD...you can be in the middle of no where = no jobs around and long commute, live in the city or rural areas = good mix of high and low pay jobs, or live in the city = Baltimore City = ghetto = high crime, drugs, STD's, homicides, etc... Just don't move to Baltimore, its one of the worst and dangerous cities in the US and one of the smallest for that matter. Its ok to visit the city in the harbor area or the clubs they have if you're into that or for sports stadiums. I don't want to leave, but I want a house and it won't happen around here with the cost of homes!
And Roach, that does sound like a great idea, when I move up there I will only know my fiance and whoever I'll get to know at my work, so I will def. need to make a couple new friends to hang with and show me around. And if they own bikes, thats a plus because I'm fairly new to riding too. I only know how to get to my new house from MD and where I may be transfered to because its on my way to the house
