Cincinnati to Sheboygan
The girlfriend and I have been talking now for Id say a month about Sheboygan Wisconson and the possibility of moving there. The reason being is we both want a fresh start and want to take on a challenge, and because how beautiful it is there. So far from some research the crime rate is very low, the cost of living is very managable compared to here in Cincinnati, and there are still jobs.
I work in the printing industry and have worked in the corrugated/Printing industry, and dang there is a Georgia Pacific in Sheboygan, they do corrugate boxes just like when I worked at Georgia Pacific here. There is also another big time printing/Corrugate company called Sheboygan Box Company, of which both are hiring currently. That sort of takes care of employment for me. The girlfriend on the other hand isnt having such luck here, that also takes to account for wanting to get out of Cincy, she cant find a decent job, she is been looking the past year for full time work and has been working at Taco Bell coming up on a year.
Housing? I have not really looking into it much yet, just a little searching on Craigslist at rental housing and from what Ive seen the pricing isnt bad. Id be looking for a house with garage or an apartment with garage.
What about leaving our family behind? Well Sheboygan is 8 hours away from "Home" We really have not talked to our family much about it yet. My family ow days only consists of a few uncles, and both parents, All my grandparents have past away. The rest of my family were not really close to. The flip side is my girlfriend is a real family person and has a big family, there always having get togethers. I talked to her seriously about it and she is still for moving regardless of her family situation.
I know your probably thinking that I should just stay here in Cincinnati becuase I have a stable job and know this area. I(We) want to try something new and see what other oppurtunities are out there for us. Id like to get more information on living there. I also want your guys opinions about this, before we do get REAL SERIOUS about this.
I am asking you all this becuase you all pretty much seem like family.
