Hey Cube... I live here, My Neighbors house was just forclosed on, needs alot of work, but its a lot and a half on the river... you could probably get it for 40k

Houses are cheap, the town is fun, everyone bikes, walks or rollerblades in summer. Havn't hit the bars yet, but some look fun

A buddy of mine lives there. Its a decent town, though I've heard the police are unusually uptight.

Its pretty white too for being close to Flint.

I made it to west lansing (saginaw Hwy Holiday inn) in 30 minutes flat.

The town is almost all white if that matters to you.. 30 miles from flint... 30 miles from saginaw, 30 miles from lansing. little to no crime. I have not noticed uptight police, I have bonfires in my backyard and am not bothered.

The "uptight police" rap came from the cruising that used to happen in downtown Owosso when i was in high school. a 1 mile lap and 150-200 cars would cruise it. You could not get anywhere downtown. The police stopped it. They havn't been a problem yet... though i am right on the edge of town too.

Owosso born and raised. I went to school at Kettering in Flint and now live near Ann Arbor. I only visit every now and again now.

Its a nice town, most every store you need close by and pretty much no crime. I have never had a problem with the police there. Hell I had one let me off for spinning my tires leaving from a stoplight.

Its a nice town with a couple decent bars. Jumbos and Ristros are downtown and halfway nice. Other than that there are a ton of crappy redneck bars around there.

Cube, its not a bad location to be in. Kind of the middle of a few different places. You'd also kind of be in range of me, so I might be able to offer you a place to keep your Jeep if space is a problem where you are going.

Actually, if you haven't already committed, you might want to hit up Elusive on Mistfits. He rents from me at my Grand Blanc house (you've been there) and its just him since Justin moved out. Plenty of house and garage space with there only being his Zook in there.
