Might move to Leavenworth, KS
I recently received a job offer to work at Ft. Leavenworth. I'm a military intel guy, my wife is a tech at the VA Hospital in Dayton, OH where we'd be moving from. I am trying to convince my wife we should move to Kansas or even West Missouri area for this job. She's worried we'll move from, as she calls it, "one hell-hole to another". The way I see it, Dayton and Kansas City are both off I-70 so I imagine seasons are similar, cost of living is about the same, but moving to Leavenworth is a $25K boost in salary. In Dayton, my Wife wakes up, goes to the gym, then to work and back home. Weekends were grocery shopping maybe light shopping at the mall and back home. The 6 years we've lived in Dayton she hasn't made any friends and she's okay with that, very independent. Here's where I need help. What is fun and exciting about Leavenworth, KS/Kansas City, MO area that I can use to convince my wife we're not moving to a "hell-hole"?
I'm already convinced so if you're a guy reading this can you get input from your wife/girlfriend please? I appreciate any and all input. Thank you,
