    My wife is getting stationed at Tinker AFB next year. Can anyone tell the pros and cons about the area. Such best place to leave, crime rate, and schools for small kids. How id the job market there? Thanks in advance.

    Well if you're worried about the crime rate stay out of south Okc, it's not terrible but it seems to make the news more frequently. As for school I've always heard great praise for the edmond public school district and from edmond is only about a 20 minute drive to tinker. As for jobs I guess it depends on what field you're skilled in but I know the city's unemployment rate is among the lowest in the USA.

    How is houses for rent. We definitely need a 3 car garage with all the cars we got.

    We just moved to Edmond from the Dallas area a couple of months ago.
    Like it real well - schools are great (according to our Grandkid)
    Rentals move quick and range from $1K up!
    Thread hijack - Joe, are you going to cars & coffee next month @ Lonstar Steakhouse parking lot on Meridian?
    Made it last month and are going again - probably with both the HD and our GT500.

    Not too worried about the crime, just trying to get a feel for what the area is like. Last few years I have been working at Anheuser-Busch as a Production Tech, but also have military and civilian experience in aviation, might be trying to get back into aviation if they money is right. I'm a big football fan, and I pretty much work and chill with my family. Thanks for the info. If you have anymore input feel free to respond.
