    Hey guys, well if you don't know, I am in the miltary. I just found out that I am being transferred from Washington State to Abilene Texas, to leave in sept - Oct timeframe. It will definately be a change, but a welcome one.

    Anybody from this area, that could help me out with info. I can be emailed at eric.m@themail.com

    Thanks for any info...

    EriC!

    Not too far from where I live. About an hours drive. Not a bad place.

    Dyess, eh? I've been there many, many, many times.

    Oh, and, it is a bad place. I absolutly hate this city. There are few things to do here for fun.

    Sure going to be a big change from Washington State!

    I spent many years west of Abilene at Odessa. A lot of fine people in that part of the country.

    Good luck and Welcome to West Texas!

    Spent the first 25 years of my life in Odessa. Madman, dunno where you were. I will say that Texans are among the most genuine, hardworking and polite people around. I will move back there one day if it kills me.

    When you said, three hours west of Abliene I was thinking you were probably talking of "Big O". Then guess you remeber "Mojo" and the Permian Panthers. Or maybe were you in Odessa High.

    You are so right about Texas people. We like the trees and water here in AR but miss the fine folks in TX. Also the great TX roads!

    Lelu, from AR eh? I am too. Thats my whole reason for going to Texas, trying to get alittle close to family.

    Im originally from Hot Springs Ark, but lived down south in Camden for 7 years before joining the military. What part of ARK you in?

    BTW... Thanks everyone for your replies!
