After putting thought into moving to NYC, I decided i would not be able to afford surviving and having fun there with the cost of living. me and a buddy, whos a fellow CC'er decided to head on down to Austin at the end of September. I have family in Dallas and we both have jobs lined up in the Austin area so it seemed like a good choice. Only problem is figuring out where to live. Anyone have suggestions for neighborhoods to look for 2 bedroom apartments. Id like to live in or near downtown or honestly wherever is cool, Im not familiar with the area at all. Also seeing as its only us two Id like to know where to meet some other people who enjoy riding and building bikes, drinking beer, talking shit and whatever else.

Good choice, Austin is awesome, but the weather is a kick in the teeth, especially right now. It was 106 today, not good riding weather.

There are plenty of us on CC in the Austin area. Join the "ATX" group on here to keep up with what we are doing and once you get down here, come on out and join up with the "Filthy 52" crew.

I moved down here about a year ago, your gonna love it, being able to ride year round is huge. And it's a much nicer city than Springfield, MA haha. I moved from about an hour north of Springfield on I-91 (Brattleboro, VT)

Ive only been once but from what I experienced and from what others have told me, Austin is a really cool place to live in or around. Probably a LOT more than Springfield haha.

Bringing back this thread with hopefully some good news. Just filled out an app for a 3 bedroom house in Hyde park near north Lamar. Hopefully we get it and me and two other riders will be down hanging out the first week of October

Sweet, that's pretty close to the rest of us. We meet up pretty often up north.

You should get in on the ATX brolodex thread...

I'm not sure what resources you're using, but you may want to try to look into 1 of the student apartment locator services, there's a lot here in Austin.

Do you fellas have a date that you will be here? We are planning to trip up to the ultra-rad "Day of the drags" vintage hot rod races the first weekend in October. This thing is legendary and if you're going to be here you shouldn't miss it. Keep in touch.

Doors at 5, Film at 7, no cover before 8, Probably about $6.00 after 8pm. Band will start after the film ends around 8:30 or 9pm.

Don't forget free swag and prizes and probably some free beer/liquor from our sponsors such as Maker's Mark.

Come on out. Feel free to PM me or any of the Filthy 52 crew for details.
