Was leaning towards NOLA until I started looking at real estate prices and commute times. We have 4 - 100# dogs so a yard is necessary, and a big one. In our price range, I'd be looking at well over an hour commute. I've done that before - andxwill never do it again.
Alex Bay is the likely choice. I was also talking to someone at FLETC who is from and picked alex bay. Shes been there since being sent home from FLETC for COVID19. New hires typically work 8-4 m-f, no weekends. OT will obviously be a challenge, but with the new port being constructed, they're apparently hiring 75 new officers, per what she said, essentially doubling the port size.
