    I live in Folsom, and I can also help you. Let me know if you have any questions or need any information. If you PM me I can send you a link to a very useful folsom website/message board. It really is a good place for a family. I too am young, 28, and am raising a family here.

    I'm 41 and have lived in Sacramento for a long time, have 2 little kids 3 & 6. I also happen to be a long time Real Estate Appraiser, so I know the nbhds about as well has anyone. Sorry to hear about the marriage. PM me with any specific questions, I'd be happy to help. If you come here for a scouting trip, I'll buy you a pint & we can chat.

    Quickly:

    employment is decent here, some tech, some gov't, lots of retail/medical
    housing: my expertise: prices have just fallen quite a bit, Summer 08 will probably not be a bad time to buy a house. Usually it is better to rent for a bit, then take your time looking for the right place and to test the entire area.
    bars: Lots in the midtown, downtown area, less, of course, in the 'burbs.

    I've got some strong opinions on the best places in Sacramento, but I can temper them to fit your needs.

    Nothing wrong with Folsom, maybe not as many bars as you might like, since you mentioned it. It is a bit closer to the mountains than some areas. Do not buy a house & Folsom & commute to downtown Sacramento: Traffic is pretty bad and only going to get worse: Live near where you work!

    BTW years ago, I took a trip to Brazil/Paraguay & loved it.

    Cheers

    Scott,

    sent you a PM, rather then loading up the thread.

    Thanks!

    He was dropped off out close to Stonyford. I know someone went out to find him and was right there but I don't think they were confident they looked down the right hole.

    Someone will eventually get back out there. Or if he's unclaimed when I get back out on my bike I'll head out that way. I'm trying to get a couple of other projects out of the way first.

    At the same time I don't see anything wrong with having two lizards out & about?
