despain85 I wasn't even signed in at the time that it happened so I couldn't be to nosy. I'll get a good read on it one day I'm curious of how the FBI views it.

Look for Buds restaurant over by the church.

despain85 Made it to Travis, hopefully close on a house in Dixon in 3 weeks. Seems to be an ok area, still working on finding everything and where we need to buy all of our goods.

White Shark Vacaville made #17 on the 25 most Festive Holiday Towns based on Candy Cane and Lollipop Lanes. They didn't even consider the huge annual downtown Christmas Tree Lighting, or the week long Festival of Trees which is a huge fundraiser for a local charity. It's a great place to visit over the holidays, or a great place to live in general.

Go west young man.
I guess we will see what happens! Going west is quite expensive, I think Vacaville will be the ticket.

If I had to live in Fairfield I would look West of I-80.

clb 017 A quick fwiw
I know you are aware of the firestorm we had out here.
Housing is INSANE with all the displaced folks, there will be some burnt builders available.

Word is The fat cats are buying excavators for contractors ,to hasten the epa's cleanup agenda.

Best of luck, this may get ugly for a while.
Hope you get lucky.

I'll give it a look and I'll call some realtors today too to get a better idea. Looks like some new construction areas around there too.

The areas close to a couple of the golf courses seem nice enough. Rancho golf course and paradise valley golf courses?? I keep hearing anywhere near the mall is a total shithole, but what do I know? Iím not familiar with the area all that much. I am currently staying in Fairfield, but I have not gone out anywhere except to work for the few months Iíve been here so I am not much help.

When I lived in Napa, we used to ride dirtbikes all over that area off Red Top Rd between 80 and 680.

Then you'll do just fine.

FWIW, the only place I'd consider living that direction is Vacaville. Still reasonably clean, good amenities and location. Hot and windy though. All the other places - Winters, Dixon and Cordelia mostly suck.
