Yeah, what did you decide? This is exciting. Hurricanes, hail, heat, cold, wind - wow, you would certainly not get bored with the weather from the sound of it - just wait a minute and it will be doing something else.

Good luck with your choide. Regardless of what you decide to do, you'll make it work.

We moved to the coast from the Canadian prairies almost 20 years ago and can't believe we waited so long to do so it is so nice here. Yet friends moved from here back to there and although we think they are nuts, they love it and wouldn't come back this way except on holidays.

It sounds like you are talking about the weather in New England!

It's why we now live on the west coast of Canada - we like change, but keep it within reason. I thought you guys had four kinds of weather, hot, cooling, really cold, and warming. Here we have dry, wet, load the boats with 2 of every creature, and mostly wet . I've grown accustomed to web feet - it sure makes wearing flip-flops a challenge though.

Wichita Falls is more civilized...and thats not saying much..A nice college and even some arts events. An hour away.
I guarranty you will see lots of tornados and big hail events.
When Ft. Sill tore down the historic Calvary stables, built in the 1800's, I went up there and bought the salvage rock and hardware to build my house from. Story is that Geronimo was held in that building. I am still looking for
his graffiti (sp) scratched in the rock face.
Bureau of Indian Affairs is still there.
If I had a choice I would not move there....but, a good place to visit.
I must have missed the part about there being stables at Calvary. And I can't imagine how Geronimo could have possibly been around that area.

But I can tell you that Lawton is a nice town with nice people.

Well Rodney, if that works for you then all the power to you. Moving for career reasons is an interesting concept. You leave everyone behind and off you go with high expectations and some trepidation. Learning about your new to you town will be interesting and who knows, you may just end up liking it enough (or earning enough) to make it a long term situation.

Congrats, Rodney - it's very exciting to be thinking of a new home. New places are in reach. Watch out for those reservation casinos, though.

Growing up, we moved around quite abit (foreign service). As an adult, I I've done so also, tho' not as much or as far. Some places are "better" than others only in that I may not have had to travel as far to do something I wanted to do or see... it all boiled down to who you're with and how comfortable you are with them and yourself. Seems everywhere we've been, there has always been something "redeeming" about it... and the best thing is that I have friends all over the place as a result!

Heck, life's an adventure. I'd say go for it. Nothing is forever and you can always move on. Besides, you'll have a memory of the time spent there and the people you've met... it's only as good as you make it.

congrats rodney

gonna become a cameron u aggie?

and work in that new science center?

lawton suffers from the same weather issues that bless many on the great plains...

you will be closer to western usa camping which is good.

and in academia, having a job/position makes it much easier to find a new post!

hope ya have a great year.

fall is really the best season.

but covered a/s storage AND a wind resistant abode might be necessary.

cheers

Yes, the job is with Cameron University. I have mixed feelings after visiting the town. Only time will tell how I living there. I liked what I saw of the school and on the upside, it serves both a lot of first generation college students which is important to me and the Fort Sill community (I feel like these folks deserve the best). Also on the upside of the ledger is a really neat wildlife refuge about 30 miles away. A look at the map indicates that Padre Island, Big Bend NP, and the southern Rockies are all within a days drive which is a big bonus.

Congrats on the job... Big Ben & Padre (esp. Big Bend), are a long days drive... around 500 miles from Lawton. Ft. Davis State Park is nice with alot of cool day trips (Marfa lights are fun as well as the town) - go to McDonald Observatory for sure...

Have been camping all over Oklahoma and there are some very nice parks that aren't at all crowded. It really is a pretty state. Lots of lakes.
