I have heard some folks say that Partlow is not a desirable area to live in within Spotsylvania if you are not from there. I have lived a few miles north of there for at least 10 years and things have been ok with an exception or two.

Is it true? The most that I hear about it is that it is "a whole different world" and folks like to 4 wheel over there. They love to 4 wheel over here too and while I don't really like it, not sure what the difference would be.

I found a nice house down there on several acres which seems pretty nice.

I really don't know that area well enough to comment but I have found people who make comments like that are usually pretty ignorant or biased for some reason. When we were looking out here in Shenandoah County to move from NOVA I had several people try and tell me to be careful as they are plenty of rednecks and so on out here in Shenandoah who love shooting their guns all the time. I found the complete opposite and we've found our little slice of heaven. Yes, little more poverty out here in pockets but plenty of middle and upper middle class out here as well. We've found the locals here to be very welcoming from day one. The farmers, business folks and so on. I'd check out the neighborhood where you're looking but decide for yourself and not based on someone's very unlikely uneducated info.

Bigfoot makes a lot of sense. I think you will find what you want to find. Partlow is just the east side of Lake Anna so there may some influence from there, or a place to go. One thing to remember, you are out in the middle of nowhere. If thatís what you want, itís great. Iím in western Spotsy and there are times I love it and times I wished services were closer as itís a minimum of 15 minutes to Food Lion or 30-45 minute to Fredericksburg,
