So, the list is out for our rotation next year. Did I mention that DH has decided to help ease the burden of moving with a one week trip to Hawaii on our way to our new home? Since it is on the way and all...
Anyway, on to the good stuff. The list is out and as I told DH, I am pretty underwhelmed at this point. No Sturgeon Bay, no Paducah, no Massena...bleh. I have a pretty good idea of what my ranking is, I am just wondering what your thoughts are. What would be your top 3 choices? Don't take into consideration the cost of living (certainly can't be higher than Saipan, where we are now with our $10 gallons of milk) or the housing market, since we get a Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH). And we do intend to buy. If it is a big city, we would live outside of the city in a suburb or some such. Here ya go...
Houma, LA (we lived here before, I would go back)
I have already ixnay-ed St. Thomas, USVI and Kodiak, AK since I have had enough island living for a while.
The really crummy thing is this: Our friends in Cape May, NJ have a higher priority than us since he is a Company Commander(boot camp). DH & I have been talking and we really wanted to put Portsmouth, NH as our #1 choice, but it seems that our friends are putting that as their top choice as well. So, we get screwed out of it. Really bites.
