    Any chance any of you are going to either DOA 2013 on Drummond Island in August, or Gitche Gumee in Canada in September?

    Don't mean too hijack your thread, but the wife and I are looking into relocating to Michigan. I am a federal worker and she works at babies/toys r us. We were thinking battle creek/kalamazoo area because its more southern, seems to be decent jobs openings and its on the dune side of michigan. Is there any reall reason we wouldn't want to live there? Don't say its cold please. I'm from Missouri, but my wife is from california and she's the one who wants to move. Thanks for any info. P.S. I told her the merc is coming. LOL

    Be aware of the neighborhoods, avoid post addition and washington heights in Battle Creek, and Northside and Southside in Kalamazoo. I just moved from Kalamazoo to Battle Creek. Being a federal worker battle creek is the better location, but i dont think there is a Babies-R-Us in BC. If your budget allows I suggest looking into the Augusta area or Galesburg. The houses are a little more expensive in those areas but they are close to the 2 bigger cities and the living is better, less crime and less violence. If you choose to live in BC look into Lakeview and Harper Creek. If you choose to live in Kalamazoo look into the Westside and Portage. If you are willing to work in factories the job market is booming in Battle Creek, but kalamazoo is more tech related and a little harder to find work. We do have a federal center in BC, so you could look into a transfer and not even have to worry about the job market if you wanted. If you dont like snow then Battle Creek is a better option as Kalamazoo tends to see a fair bit of Lake Effect snow compared to Battle Creek.

    Hey, thanks for the info. I would be applying for a fed job. I roll over 15years next month, so I won't want to give that up. It looks like the area you suggested would be perfect. I know my wife was going to have to work in Kalamazoo and I would probably work in battle creek. From the postitions I've seen (who knows if I would get them) our house budget might be as high as 250k. My wife said she will commute, but has never commuted anywhere with weather. Looks like gales burg would be around 15-20 miles for us both. I commute 25 now and my wife commutes 45 (both one way). Thanks again. Is there any stupid vehicle laws that would prohibit my off road truck from being legal there. Everything works, it sits stockish height and the tires sit under the fenders. It has mustang seats and has frame modifications. Just curious. Again, thanks.

    Michigan is a non-inspection state. I drove around with massive rust holes in my frame for over 2 years without being bothered once. They do occasionally pull people over for excessive noise if you have a loud enough exhaust though.

    I pretty much attached everything I know about it. Unfortunatly I won't be able to attend.

    There is a thread on Great Lakes Four Wheel Drive Association's (GLFWDA) Forum.
