Idk about philly being in the center of things guys.  And it seems really random.  I think this should be focused more on whats near it as far as spots go not community.  Can there be a lot we can learn and do.  As far as being cental to most of the national Jams I would think that would be closer to east ohio honestly then you would be about five hours from every thing unless its on the edges like DC and Madison.

I agree with fox that you should pix somewhere more in the middle. I would also say count me into the list for the house but I Am not confident I'd be able to find a job and make rent very well. Depends it is next year so I might. If I have about two-three months to find a job I can possible hit minimum wage style rent. What would you expect the rent and bills share to be per person?

So yeah anywhere is cool but as fox said eastern Ohio would be really good (I like Ohio in general) or possible toward the middle of the states?

The places in Philly that the house is near are exceptional. Around 10 minutes from an open gym, 30 minutes from downtown Philly, etc.

But like I said Dale I'm sure there are better spots to choose BUT, those better spots are useless if I'm the only one living there.

Will tally votes today and have a winner for you guys today.

whats better than philly? a few hours from new york city, an hour and some change from DC and philly itself having a pretty decent scene with good spots?

Now we just need to pick a house.

Kyle, you need any help in scouting online?
Or is there any point to us doing it now, seeing as how we aren't going to move in until 2012?

Philly will challenge you in every way possible. It is responsible for making my skills, training for the majority of my time without anyone else (not saying that I'm amazing, but I feel good with myself). We're really close to a lot of other communities (and as stated before, transportation through busses for cheap is readily available) not to mention an entire train system that can get us to spots all throughout southeastern PA, and Amtrak which gets us to other major cities.

Trust me when I say you guys want to be close to NY for some good training :) Things might be happening soon that will be very good for that area haha. Hope all these plans go well! If you guys are open to taking visitors for a night I'd love to trek out to Philly on a weekend and train...

Thank you for that list, Gabe. That's very helpful. I'm sure once we get sorted on where it's at and how many people are going to be living there we will be able to determine the prices a month for each of us.

Good thing about me working at wal-mart is me being able to transfer to another state. Although, I have never lived anywhere besides Alabama so I might be in for a culture shock.

I think this is a cool idea and I can definitely understand why you would want to be  in philly. Close to New York and pretty close to DC. I did think of something else that could be done by other people.

Why not plant a house like some churches do. Go to an area where there are seemingly few traceurs, scout great parkour places around colleges and what not and make a house there to bring parkour to people who only have you tube. That way people could see the country train everywhere and start parkour communities that will keep growing. I would do it but I'm gonna be married by the time I graduate. Just an idea somewhere to go if this goes well.

I like this idea.  You should come up northeast and plant a house near me.  I would have some training partners.  I would join but im too young (still 16).  I've been wanting something like this to happen since I first joined APK.  I just hope the world doesnt end first ;)
I'm not great at performing the movements of parkour, but I'm awesome at enjoying myself whilst I perform them to the best of my ability.

We don't need to get into the 2012 discussion here, guys.

Reserve an extra bed for weekends for me too, Kyle. I can always share with Andy; we'd probably come together anyways. PA's stepping up its game this spring! Look for big things.
