re: Took a sweet gig, but have to move to Hammond - gorillaballin
The trash you're referring to is from Chalmette, not Nola. I grew up in Mandeville and live in Uptown now. You can have your clusterf*ck traffic on 22 and 190 and nonexistent nightlife/entertainment over there. Yea, its safer but I'll take my chances to continue enjoying the endless entertainm...

re: Fellow cord cutters- how are you watching TruTV? - gorillaballin
I have PS Vue and it lets you stream thru Apple TV, Roku, etc and you can also just go to the TruTV website and watch live there with your login. They offer a 5 day free trial so that gets you thru the weekend hoops at least. Playstation Vue is the best for sports IMO because it is the only stre...

re: Terrible Airline Policies - gorillaballin
Southwest is great. Try rescheduling a flight with them (no charge) then try rescheduling with United or AA - they charge a fee that is about the same as the ticket cost so you basically lose your money entirely. They tell you up front that the ticket is non-refundable but they fail to mention tha...

re: Anybody deal with Go Auto claims - gorillaballin
Some woman with Go Auto ran into my week old truck a couple of years ago. I let my insurance and the body shop deal with them - they of course wanted to put cheap aftermarket parts on but my people didn't allow it. They eventually paid for the repair in full ($10k in damage) as well as sending a l...

re: Why doesn’t New Orleans do more to attract middle-class home buyers? - gorillaballin
Not going to read all six pages of this thread but the prevalence of Airbnb/short-term rentals in places like uptown has reduced housing supply, which has resulted in inflated prices. Condo supply is increasing but housing supply is basically fixed as the city is nearly 100% developed and surrounde...

re: Hypothetical: you are offered 200k for a job...what is best city for family of 5? - gorillaballin
[quote]Flood Insurance $3800 year[/quote] That happens in some really low lying areas that were crushed by Katrina but not typical at all. If you have a raised house in LV that helps a lot too. I'm in flood zone X and paid $650 last year...

[quote]Can you live in half a double as a family of 5?[/quote] No, I'm just trying to illustrate how to live cheaply and save prior to deciding to have three kids in a place like Orleans Parish. I guess I'm drifting too far from the hypothetical OP but just saying...

[quote]Enough with the hypotheticals.[/quote] This is precisely what I'm doing as a single person. I renovated a double, living in one side, and have a rent check coming in that pays most of the note. It can be done....

re: Hypothetical: you are offered 200k for a job...what is best city for family of 5? - gorillaballin
If you save heavily and invest intelligently as a single person, before you decide to pop out three kids, you'll have money put away for a fat down payment on a nice $450k-ish house somewhere like Lakeview and you'll end up with a manageable note. The schools are astronomical but it can easily ...

re: What is the Louisiana job market like? - gorillaballin
[quote]Competitive pay? Reason I ask is cuz I am wondering if cost of living in the south is worth exploring.

re: Highlander - 4Runner - Grand Cherokee Summit - gorillaballin
I get the GC hate because historically they've been bad but I bought a 2013 GC Overland, put 70k miles on it, and it never broke down. Just traded it in for a 2017. I also bought an extended warranty just in case but have not had to use it yet....
