    So I may be taking a job offer at Mercedes-Benz of Huntsville.

    I spoke to the Service Manager and he's interested in me going to work for them when I graduate in September.

    It's not set in stone yet but I would like to know more about this area and it's surrounding cities. Say, a 25 mile radius or so. I will do some searching of my own online but from past experience, most websites are biased towards hating or liking a place.

    I want to know from you guys and girls, who are in that area, how the place is. Both good and bad. Crime rate and school system is very important to me since I have kids. Cost of Living isn't all that important because i'm sure it's less than Cali lol.

    I don't want to leave Cali but if I have to, I will :(

    Lol

    See, this is what i'm talking about when it comes to things on the internet lol. I don't know if Madison or Madison County is what you're referring to but a few articles online say Madison County has a higher than average crime rate and none say it's a top rated place to live lol. Can you find a link for me on the exact area you're talking about?

    lol Thanks

    But then, I find this... Huntsville Profile | Huntsville AL | Population, Crime, Map

    Lol

    In your opinion, what city/cities within a half hour drive or so, would be a good area for me to find a house? I'm looking for a monthly mortgage payment of ~ $1100

    2700 sqft on how much land? I can get that for about $1250 out here but on 1/4 acre. If it's a 1/2 acre or more, count me in lol.

    I'm willing to drive a half an hour to work lol. That ain't shit lol.

    Every time I try to look up Madison, AL it always comes up with Madison County :( Should I search for something else? Could you hook me up with a few links of those places you suggested and where you're at just in case I run into the same problems as searching for Madison lol. Thanks :)
