    I wish I could share all the stories I have. But one hundo thousand percent. LCS program is by far and way the largest fraud waste event in the surface navy is recent memory (my opinion). Granted, hers was good nuff to deploy to SCS for last 7 months so at least it served some type of "purpose".

    We lived in NoVA/DC for 3 years prior to Cali, and didn't have ANY car. It was fucking amazing. Borrowed my buddy's truck (or went with him) anytime we went to quantico for LR shooting saturdays. Bought one before we came to Cali, and live in downtown San Diego so she commutes to 32nd street...

    Since this is a TDY and not a PCS, we are going to be able to get out of our lease here in San Diego, but maintain our San Diego BAH. We will ideally want a furnished place as well. Thx for those links, will add them to the rsearch.

    Throwing out a hypothetical variable: Living here in this area with 2 adults but only 1 car, of which the wife will use primarily to commute to docks. Do the areas recommended above still stay true, knowing I'd like to live in an area where I can walk to gym/food/coffee/etc? I work from home...

    Looks like a longer commute into the docks from there, unless I mapped it wrong. Or is that the price to pay to stay away from the shit.

    Thanks man, appreciate the above, great intel. Luckily, just my wife and I (no kids, no pets), so dont have to worry about those dynamics. Correct on the tax statement as well, we are Florida residents still and will remain so so long as she's active duty, so the state income tax variable isn't...

    Better half is active duty navy, and her ship is going into dry dock later this year in fucking Portland, OR. I never, ever thought the navy would take us to that fucking city, but it's a long availability and I'll be heading up with her. All bullshit aside, if anyone has pointers on where to...
