    Relocating to Barksdale...

    Advertisements
    We currently are in seperate states, he got orders to Barksdale and I'm coming with him! I'm excited yet very nervous....I've heard the Shreveport area can be a little rough. If anyone on here is also stationed there let me know. We'll be there in July, neither of us will know anyone! I look forward to hopefully meeting some new friends

    I personally have never been to Barksdale, but I have not heard great things. I hope you enjoy it though.

    Yeah, I've heard good and bad. We're going to live off base, not sure if that's good or bad....I've never lived on a base so I can't really compare it. A little less than two months till we're there!!

    We PCS in one week to Barksdale but went over for a visit two weeks ago. I had your same reservations about the area, but I was pleasantly surprised. In Bossier I felt completely safe and everything was as clean as around any other base I've been to.... we found a great house that is fairly new and close to base to rent. The wait to get housing is over a year for us so we just rented. The food was fab! We went on base to drive around and it's very historical and looks really nice with lots to do. We didn't venture into Shreveport, but in Bossier, you can't throw a rock without hitting a policeman. I think we are actually going to enjoy our time there.

    That is great to hear! We don't know if he's getting any time off to go look around for places so we've done our searching online, we've settled on a complex we love and we'll find out in a few weeks if they'll have something available. I've lived in Louisiana before, further south and yes I agree the food is amazing, oh how I've missed it!
