Our location limitation is to be within a one day drive of Houston since two of our three kids live here.

If you didn't like Springfield, then you will definitely NOT like Joplin, which is Springfield's ugly cousin. The prettiest, nicest section of Joplin looks down from its hill onto the sewage treatment plant. Also, there used to be a fun used truck tire dump just outside of town where kids rode their dirt bikes and mosquitos liked to settle down with their families. How do I know? I lived there for a mercifully short two years.

Thanks for the input. I haven't heard anything good about Joplin.
