We are going for a look see in early november and I'd like any info you guys can give me...what areas are most economical? anything at all really would be helpful...i have scoured the internet and cant seem to find much other than weather and recreational information.

many thanks

so have you looked into it anymore, I actually live in Weston, so i could tell you exactly what its like, its really not the worst city in the world, We do have a park, unfortunatly we also have a mental asylum, are city is known for a few things, are main street during christmas is always decorated with are blue snowflakes, The Wv state hospitol "old one, the tourist attraction", we are directly beside buckhannon which is known for the strawberry festible, we have all kinds of resturaunt like mcdonalds, hardee's, wendy's, LJS, we have a few bars, we have DSL "who hoo". I will tell you some of the citys around us are pretty sucky, orlando and walkersville, are like dead, noone there but a bunch of "wrong turn" people. clarksburg, is a living example of how noone here discriminates, in clarksburg we have lots of blacks, whites, latino, gay, lesbian, punk rockers, daycare moms, thugs, its a pretty colorful city, but we go there to shop alot, if they dont have it in clarksburg, you dont need it. well hope this helps, joe (jwkware)

A movie a few years ago was made about a group of college kids getting lost in the backwoods of WV. They made a wrong turn.... and canablistic hillbillys pretty much chopped them up and ate them

Well Kennedy I'm actually wanting to go to grad school at the University of South Florida in Tampa. There are very few schools that offer a masters or doctorate in Urban & Regional planning. Which is what I'm wanting to specialize in. There aren't any in West Virginia, and only a few in the neighboring states. My parents have a house in Florida too, so that would make my tuition cheaper to go to school in Florida. ha ha My grades this semester should be just fine, I'm only concerned about my biology class, and my actual drink of poison is a stiff glass of vodka and cranberry juice ha ha. But I only drink or go out after I'm finished with my work or projects... generally

Good luck with that field GHO, if I wasn't in finance that would be my next choice! I'm assuming you were a frequent player of SimCity growing up?

Ha ha Sim City, Sim City 2000, Sim City 3000, and Sim 4 and the expansion pack Rush Hour (which deals with transportation systems) ha ha yeah, I still in my free time love to play those games. I'm pretty bad a** on it too, I've built some huge cities without cheating. I just find it so fascinating, everything about micro managing.
