I have been interested in Vancouver since I first learned about it. May be too close to Seattle.

I trash the Kalifornia .gov. The state has so much potential to be THE place to be if those idiots were gone.



And Indiana can suck big time. Southern Indiana is one of the worst places for allergies. Northern Indiana has brutal winters. Someone say tornadoes? We have them too. The Pacers suck. The Clots got shut out by Jacksonville. No MLB team. Our governor is a closet demonrat. Every spring the roads get "fixed", but are bad by fall. No mountains and the beaches are too close to Notre Dame and Chicago.

Indiana is like Iowa and most of the midwest, you have to leave the state to go on vacation.

Why? You seem to be the only one here that canít control being an asshole to anyone who disagrees with you.

Blue Ridge also has a lot to offer, as do some of the other neighboring areas a bit further north. Good luck.

Last time I was in the area was in the fall. Too many leaf peepers. Unlike most people, I can handle Atlanta traffic. Don't like it though.

I only drove through Atlanta once, it was during the rush time and very hectic.

I live in the foothills of the NYS Adirondack mountains on a large lake. A little town of about a 1,000 year around people. Other than dodging deer the driving is real good up here except for the summer weekends when the flatlanders come to their summer camps.

We get a lot of leaf peepers but for the most part they are not much of a problem. We have no traffic lights in the town (Red, green, yellow) We do have a few stop and go blinker lights and many STOP or YEILD signed roads.

We are also at the far end of the county so LEOs do not spend much time up here and the speed limits are more of a suggestion. In fact its quite possible up here to go over 20 miles in any direction from my house and not hit a traffic control light.(Red, green, yellow)

NY would be nice if you didn't get snow measured in feet.

We utilize an underground spring for the pasture to feed livestock and for our gardens. The spring itself shows-up on survey maps from the 1800's . The spring feeds into a cistern which stores hundreds of gallons at a time. It's pumped out for usage. I also have a valve controlled overflow that is piped (pvc) into a french gulch that flows off the property. It will flow slow in late summer for a few weeks which we just water with well water temporarily if need be.
Here's what the spring/cistern looks like.
