If I wasn't involved with a century old family business, I'd be looking to move to Wyoming, Montana, or Idaho.
I believe that can be stopped.
The emissions, would they likely be different per county (like arizona) or blanket (like Cali)?

It all depends on YOU....
I never thought to stay in Virginia (Harrisonburg anyway) was because its just 'too country' and / or 'too laid back' for me. Hard to explain...... and maybe it was the people I was exposed to / worked with / on a regular basis that gave that impression. Almost like....."There's gotta be more to life than this" kinda feeling.
Lack of 'things to do'....'places to go'...... and at the time, there weren't really any potential places to apply for work in my career field that would allow for much growth/promotion opportunities.
I don't think i've been to harrisonburg, but it sounds nice, I really like the laid-back way of life, i don't really care for going places, i'd rather be in a deer stand all day than go to a mall.
Hmm, that doesn't sound good, although i'm looking at auto tech/auto body tech careers rather than a white collar or wally world job.
Any idea on the cost of land per acre?
Thank y'all for the info
