Hahira is a nice little town. Theres not much as far as jobs. Valdosta is about a 20 minute drive from Hahira and jobs are plentiful.

We relocated to Adel almost a year ago. WE just love it here, we are in the woods and the solitude is appreciated. However, we drive from here to work in Valdosta which is a 28 mile ride for me and 31 for ny husband. We both work part time now, we both worked full time in FL.
I drove 13 miles to work in south FL. It took 35 minutes, the same drive time as it takes me to travel the 28 miles to Valdosta. I~75 is under construction here and is greatly improving, weekly. The drive is well worth my time as living here in Adel is one of the nicest experiences of my life.
Welcome to south GA!

Did you graduate from Cook County High School? If you did, what year? I do believe you might have been in my class.

For the last 20 years I have been in service and delivery in Lowndes, Berrien, Brooks, Echols, and Lanier counties, not to mention Jennings, Jasper, Cherry Lake, Monticello and Tallahassee in North Fl. And I have to say South Georgia and North Florida have some of the finest folks in the country. Patient, polite and friendly. It has been a pleasure serving this area and I hope the next 20 will be just as rewarding!

Hi my husband are part of the move from Pope AFB in NC. We were just wondering about the housing down there. We heard there was new housing being built, what is it like? Also I am a partylite consultant. I was wondering if anyone is interested in hosting a catalog show or an actual home show?
Thanks for any information

Welcome to Valdosta. Moody is a great base and Valdosta does have alot of new homes being built. Alot of new homes are being built around Bemiss and Hahira. Just minutes from Moody and close to schools. What is a partylite show, I dont think I would be intrested but I have family members that might.

Ya'll should have seen Valdosta and South Georgia when we moved back here when my Dad retired from the Navy in 1970. My Dad was born and raised in Valdosta, my family earned a living at the Strickland Cotton Mill. My Dad joined the U.S. Navy and met my Mom in Bakersfield Calif. When he retired, my Dad moved his family back to his hometown! My Dad retired from Moffett field, just out of San Jose Calif, so we were use to the hustle and bustle of the fast lane in California. Things were slow here in South Georgia. There was the blue law which meant nothing was open on Sunday! Family's got together every Sunday. I remember the big family get-to-gethers at Granny's and Grandads, us kids would be playing kickball or softball. First base was my uncle Freds house post, second base was granny's mailbox and third base was the scrub oak by the ditch. Homeplate was an old shingle that moved a couple inches everytime you stepped on it. My Dad, Grandpa and uncles would be talking about fishing, politics and basically repairing all the wrong doings in America while the woman were cooking, patching up skinned knees and trading cooking and cleaning recipes. I miss those times but worst of all I know our kids will never know what real time with family means! We can make that happen again, we dont have to wait on the rest of the country, we can start right here in South Georgia!

My granddaughter 11 years old has recently moved to Valdosta with her mother and step-father. He is stationed at Moody AFB. She will be going to school in Hahira next year. We're in hopes she can make friends in this area soon. Does anyone know of summer activities for this age group. Thanks for your help!

About your granddaughter - Moody AFB has an excellent youth center with lots of activities. A couple of swimming pools on base, nice area to be in. Hahira has a reputation for a good school system. I'm retired AF and teach at Val Tech Colelge.

As I said, Moody will be a focal point for finding youth activities.
Lots of luck!

JOBS ARE PLENTIFUL? Maybe if you like 6-8 dollars per hour.Valdosta especially is woefully behind the rest of the country.,,,:(

I was stationed at Moody from 1962 to 1964 in the Medical Squadron. Very fond memories of the base, the people, and Valdosta. My wife and I have lived in Tennessee since 1974. We stayed in Valdosta when I was discharged for 10 years, because we enjoyed it there. Both of our sons were born in South Georgia. While in the Air Force, we lived in Ray City, where we rented from a wonderful man named Uncle Boots. I could go on, but guess that's enough for now.

I recently moved from South GA to NJ and I must say that I do appreciated the love demonstrated by the people of the south. I was in a hurry to leave because I was unable to reach my income potential but failed to realize the sanctitude of life as it displayed by kind people of South GA. I look forward to returning after my wife's military commitment is complete and savoring every bit of life. Money isn't everything.
