    WHY Abilene? I've lived their 3 times over the last 25 years. Wife is from their.its a lot cheaper to fly her home ever 4- 6 mnths pay is very low. property taxes very high but taxes suck every were. Watch the for the employer that cant seem to get enough help they will hose ya in a heart beat In Abilene your mostly treated like a Dog. theirs not a lot going on their unless you are into cutting horses. Pay towards Dallas seems to improve I currently live in the mid west and the pay has doubled from Abilene . and life is grand . good luck ace.
