    Work tip. If job is in Norfolk , live in Norfolk. If job is Portsmouth, live in portsmouth or Norfolk. Study rush hour patterns.

    My particular situation brings me to, but not into, the downtown tunnel/steel bridge bottleneck every evening. I count my lucky stars breezing back home into Norfolk every night (from V.B.) via Waterside drive as everyone's stacked-up/trapped in the right-hand lanes. If I lived across the water I'd be royally screwed.

    I retract the above statement. 1/2 buzzed me realizes that indeed I did not have enough beer in the fridge. I should have risked a few dents in my 20 year old Cherokee.

    Hey and welcome! I'm a licensed professional counselor and work/live in Williamsburg. My wife and I are happy here and my personal opinion is that I'd rather not live in Virginia if I had to work on the Southside (Norfolk, VA Beach, Portsmouth, Chesapeake, etc). I commuted for about 3 months down to VB and it sucked. From Williamsburg, you can be in Virginia beach or Richmond in an hour. Mountains are about 2+hrs away. PM me if you'd like and I'd be happy to talk to you about jobs up here. My place is looking and it's a decent place.

    Nice meeting you today, Bloochdog. Sorry I was in a hurry though, as my roomate was giving me the business about getting home. I think maybe he had a date or something.

    That X-Country is a nifty bike for sure. I was hoping the heated grips would "fall off" at some point while it was in the shop, but it never happened. :D
