Default i had to take a second ...

Forgive me for that quick response ... but I had to take some time to start to digest all what you've sent.

This info isn't just suggestions to me ... it's like gold.
This info is a great template for anyone who wants to move out of state ... esp. onto a piece of land somewhere.

Thank you ... each of you.
I'm going to take your suggestions and look at each place mentioned.
And I'm copy and pasting then into a Word document to begin a plan for myself. Sissy77 and the rest of you who've ... hey ... do you realize that out of all the states I've asked questions about, Virginia has been most free and candid about information and most unselfish about suggestions.

I hope to touch bases with each of you later.

Fred

GOOD LUCK ON YOUR SEARCH I know how hard it can be to move from your birth place and leave behind what you have become accustomed too .At least it only takes me 8 hours to get home .Visit the state you choose first and go on the county sights you are thinking of they have great info there .Pittsylvania county offers a GIS sight also where you can look up any house you are interested in and tells you the taxes ,the house size ,the owners name and the value of the house and when it was built and lot size and what the zone is A-1 Agricultural or R-1 is rural one , A-1 allows farm animals R-1 is restricted and other is city limits and taxes are higher .

I just wanted to comment that the GIS websites are becoming very common in the western areas also.

This is the one for Washington County, VA: netGIS - Washington County, VA

Tennessee has a statewide gateway to GIS: Tennessee Property Data Home Page

Default aahhhhh

Dear Gregir;

Thank you for the information. But it's just not fair. Please tell your neighbors that. "It's just not fair" ... for them to be living MY dream and doing it so successfully!

((chuckle)) Those are great neighbors to be living next to. Healthy, free range chicken and eggs.... and that beef must melt in your mouth.

I don't eat meat often, but if my body tells me to, I will.

Thank you most sincerely for the added information.

You can look online for the most storm damaged states and there ratings .I know my chances here and they are slightly better since I live on the other side of the mountains .Mountains really help keep them at bay or at least slow them down .But you are right the risk is every where ,even in NJ I remember one went through Metuchen .I know her I can raise veggies all winter in my covered beds and in the summer during the hottest I do loose some produce do to the fact it gets to hot for them to flower to make veggies .Tomato's and peppers slow down and then pick back in September .
