To Jeff Borne -

If you had read this entire thread, you would have seen the evolution of my thinking over the past several years. For the record, I do not work for anyone, am not compensated by anyone and not related to anyone that has anything to do with real estate anywhere on the planet.

If you're looking to engage in some form of argument, you'll just have to find someone else. Good luck in your new home at Longacre Village and goodbye.

Anyways, it's time for us to get some peace and quiet and still be able to take advantage of Dover AFB shopping and medical care. Yes, Roesville is new and rural, but CC is too close to the "big time" for us. I wish you all the best.
I'm a Navy dad. My son served as a nuclear tech on the Enterprise for six years and also spent time in the Gulf. Please let your husband and daughter know this stranger on the other side of the monitor thanks them for their service.

I wish you the best of luck in whatever community you eventually choose.

The probability of growth around Roesville is quite real. One of the other forum members reminded us that we are among the first wave of boomers to retire to 55+ communities. I expect we will enjoy relaxing on our screened porch while watching the community grow...as well as our equity!!

Is anyone on our forum retired military and currently using the services at Dover AFB? If so, I would love to get some tips from you.

I, too, am very interested in the services in and around Dover AFB. Although we have yet to visit the base, our experiences with AFBs in the past have been excellent.

I will be traveling in mid May to southern DE to look specifically at the progress of the Vineyards at Nassau Valley in Lewes DE and also plan to stop at Champions Club to compare the pros and cons of a single family home vs a condo. Seems I accidentally planned traveling down route 1 the weekend of some sort of popular car event around Dover - so I am hoping if I start out early enough I will miss any possible traffic problems on route 1 around Dover.

Coming from SE PA I usually pick up 202 S and go through Wilmington to pick up route 1 - last trip I got off at the wrong exit and ended up in downtown Wilmington before I managed to find route 1 - that is what happens when I follow the darn GPS instructions to take the next exit....

I am thinking of taking a less traveled road this trip by traveling from around Kennett Square PA south along route 7 which appears to eventually connect directly with route 1. Is anyone familiar with route 7? Can I expect to run into any construction? I don't mind a slower drive via back roads to link up with route 1 - but, I don't want to run into detours such as bridge closed etc. that sends me off on an unplanned detour.

"Of all the gin joints....she had to walk into mine."

Ah Charley, they don't make 'em like they used to.

Mary2014 = The 'some sort of popular car event' is Autism Speaks 400, a Nascar Event in the City of Dover, at Dover Downs International Speedway. If I were you, I'd keep to my planned route, rather than the 'less traveled' one. I'm familiar with all of that area and have tried both ways.

How you could avoid the traffic is a big question, depending on your planned itinerary. Campers start moving in (you'll see them on each side of Rt. 1) about a week ahead of time. By Friday, May 14th, there's bumper to bumper traffic on Rt. 1, heading to Rt. 13, and to the campgrounds on Persimmon Tree Lane, and to Delaware State University's parking/campgrounds. If you're figuring on coming through on Saturday, May 15th or Sunday, May 16th, forget it. This is a huge event with fans coming from all over the United States. Some run like the wind, while natives like us support Autism Speaks, and make it a 10 day vacation, right at home, as activities begin over a week in advance of race day. On race day, May 16th, over 30-40 shuttle buses travel Route 1 transporting fans from Bay Road, Blue Hen Corporate Center, to the Monster Mile track. A few words of encouragement, if you stay on Rt. 1, and get past the Scarborough Road Exit before the morning of May 14th, you'll have smooth sailing. Good Luck! And, enjoy your home exploration!
