    We are moving up there in March...well DF is in march DS and I will be joining in May after the wedding. Whidbey is too far from school for me to go up sooner.

    Anyways is anyone up there? If so I have some questions. We are going to start house hunting here in the next few weeks and Im curious about areas, schools, etc!

    I just left there this spring. Housing is crazy expect to pay out of pocket, unless you are lucky and can find a good deal. Navy housing will probably be backed up as I know they are getting ready to revamp the last of Capeheart which should be done sometime this next two years. can't recall for sure.


    I will miss you SOS...
    Please be wary of what you post remember OPSEC is not just another acronym.

    Heya... I am a WA lifer so... I live in Greenbank but db is leaving in March so I will be going to Mill Creek. But, if u have questions on housing I can prob help u out. U might want to look in Anacortes first or Mt. Vernon b/c they are on the mainland and thus a bit cheaper. However, since oak harbor is living off the NAVY the housing there is not to bad if u go to the right places and would rather rent. Though w/ interest rates now buying is also an option. Any questions let me know!!!
    Good luck

    we are looking at renting a home, condo/duplex, or townhome style apartment. ken really wants 2 floors. we are looking to stay under 1000, so far we have a couple things we have found. We are going to go up for the weekend on the 16th to look around. I will definitely have to stop into the realestate offices and gather info that way to!

    is it worth it to get on the list for navy housing or no?

    how about civilan job market? is it like nonexistant or are there some options? how far away? i graduate with my bachelors in August of this year.
