Long time since I have been here on the site, due to some issues my Vegas plans for March came to a screeching halt and I just could not bring myself to visit this page, the depression was bad. Anyways here is the deal. I am thinking of making Vegas my home, wanting to finally live out my dream. Currently nothing is holding me here in Ohio except my house is paid off, but I can sell it I am sure, even if at a small loss. The issue is I do not want to move unless I can find a job. I have experience in private and casino security and have been dealing in our local casino for just over a year, unfortunately I only have one game and most want you to have two in order to obtain a job, I am waiting on my employer to offer more game classes. I know quite a few places require background checks but have been told that my gaming license issued here in Ohio would be a great resource since it shows I have and can pass a background check. I am curious about where is a good SAFE place to live in the area. It would just be myself and my teenage son, we would be starting over, more than likely not bring much more than our electronics, clothes and some personal items and starting fresh with everything else. My credit is not the best if that matters, but it should show signs of improvement since I bought a new car and am on time with payments. Id like to buy a house, but honestly from what I have been seeing online at homes that are in the range I would be able to afford after selling my house (and I would not move until my house is sold) are not in great shape, we are talking under $100k, closer to $60k. Really looking for any advice from anyone who has made the move, who can provide insight on cost of living and everything to go with it. I have never live outside my small town, let alone another state but have had the dream it is has really been pushing at me lately.
