    Hello

    You visited one of the best areas for Florida, the Panhandle.
    I live on the Gulf Coast north of Tampa which is considered "Florida's Suncoast". I originally come from Southern Indiana and ended up here 22 years ago. I miss the Hoosier State a great deal. I've really enjoyed browsing your Forum and look for to learning a lot from everyones posts. :>)

    Nice to meet both of you, I actually live just north of Tampa as well. We were looking in Spring Hill for homes as you can get 3 times the home there as in tampa

    Hi Blind Dragon.

    I've lived in Springhill for the past 22 years. There are numerous homes for sale here and yes, less expensive than Tampa. Property taxes are much less expensive here in Hernando County, but, as the norm statewide homeowners insurance is quite expensive. Tampa is way too crowded for me. Good luck.

    I have noticed. I have lived north of Tampa for 26 years, and it has changed so much, people used to say we lived in the boonies. Now, not even you are considered in the boonies, and it has even been crowded up there.

    I am tired of Tampa traffic though

    Greetings laptopuser and Blind Dragon.

    Yes, Springhill years ago used to be the boonies but now is quite crowded. Definitely not as bad as Tampa. To be honest I really don't like Florida and would rather be back in Southern Indiana as I miss the four seasons, friends and family. My hobbies are Nascar and trying to learn all of the aspects of computer repair since my eMachine T2341 died. I believe the cheap power supply fried the motherboard so I'm digging deep into this Forum for assistance and expert advise on replacement parts. Have a great day.

    Thanks for the welcome AADude. Blind Dragon, I've been scouring the eMachine posts the last 3 days and I do appreciate the assistance and information you provided. I just now need to go into the posts again today for eMachines and see what expert advise I can find to assist with my problem. Have a great day all.

    I've only been as far south as Fort Myers in my 22 years here. I've just never found any thing exciting about Florida as a resident. Nice place to visit, but, living here is too much heat for me. NO SEASONS. Florida is considered the "Last Doorstep to Heaven". :>)
