I would eliminate the NEPA and replace it with Warren County in NJ. Just as nice as Hunterdon but less expensive! We don't have those "posh" areas like Hunterdon has..the filthy rich townships ; ) but I think you would like it just the same

Theres kind've something here for everyone. Except those who want the urban life. Suburban or rural, the area has quite a bit to offer without being out of touch.
Thanks for confusing me further (just kidding).... I definitely am looking for a slower pace of life. I've been in South Jersey almost four years but I think I would be better off a little farther North. Or maybe TN? Let's see now.... NJ or TN..... TN or NJ..... eeney meeney miney mo, to which state should I go. (Yeah yeah, I know.... don't quit my day job.)

Hey that's some great advice -- I'll look into Warren County. I'm originally from NWNJ (White Meadow Lakes with Beaches 1,2&3 LOL). I think that's in Rockaway? I was just a kid and don't recall the county (Morris maybe?).

BTW, if I wanted to obtain current accurate statistical/demographic info about a town or county, where could I find it? So far, Wikipedia seems to be my only resource. Any ideas? [Oops wiley I just saw your post about Wikipedia... apparently great minds think alike.] :-)

city-data has information on every town/township in NJ : ) I'll see if I can figure out how to get into that section : ) By the way..what price range are you looking at for a home and what interests do you have? For example: A 10 yr old home by me with 2 acres is running around 450K ish.

I'm hoping to rent -- not sure I could afford to buy at this time. Let me put it this way, I'm renting a spacious 1br apt in South Jersey for just under $1K/month. Maybe North Jersey is going to be too pricey for me?

That's doable in Warren County. There's alot of houses, apts. and or duplexs for rent in that price range. Here's a photo I shared in another thread with another poster..this is near me in the Delaware Water gap section of Warren Co.:
