    New Job in MD...looking for info.

    I just got offered a job with the Naval Facilities Engineering Command at Patuxent River Naval Air Station in SE Maryland (about 65 miles from DC). If anybody knows anything about the area please share.

    Now I just need GMac to schedule a home and home with the Terps or UVA!

    send flagguy a PM, he lives in Maryland I believe.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    I am active duty Navy and just moved from Virginia Beach. My family and I liked the Virginia Beach area, lots of great stuff to do including the beaches, the mountains, Busch Gardens, Williamsburg, Jamestown and all the stuff in DC. The negative stuff includes expensive housing (to rent or buy) and terrible traffic throughout the summer. Good luck to you...

    Unfortunately for him though, Patuxent isn't the same as Virginia Beach as they are nowhere near each other.

    Flag Guy works at Pax River, and spent some if his childhood in that area, as well. Should be able to tell you whatever you need.

    Yeah, I got the email yesterday afternoon. So much for their decision taking 2 weeks. I'll find out Monday when I start.

    Re: New Job in MD...looking for info.

    I don't think we're playing the Terps in basketball anytime soon (nice as that'd be) but we've got a football game in Annapolis with the Navy in 8 or 9 years...


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    Pulse can tell you for the Iowa game I headed up to Crystal City, Virgina to catch a Cyclone crowd.

    I am pretty sure I'm not the only Cyclone down here, but I don't actually know of any, so I headed up to the Washington DC area (closest Alumni Association group)

    That said, there is a Damon's Sports bar down here. If we're on TV there is a chance of getting them to put the game on if we call midway through the week and atleast say we'll have a group coming to watch... but there are some bigger crowds down here (Florida, Virginia Tech, Maryland, etc) so some days that is a little harder than others
