I am looking for property I can take my son elk hunting for his high school graduation present. We were not successful in being drawn in the Elk area but are willing to
pay a fee to any land owners -farmers who are having elk invasion problems or who dont mind bowhunters.
We would be bowhunting only.

Pluses: Asheboro is a small town and the surrounding areas are beautiful. You have the larger towns such as Greensboro, Winston Salem, and Charlotte to shop and dine, if you don't mind the drive.
Minuses: Has all the usual small town politics. You have to know someone or be related to someone to get employment in the few jobs that are still here. You will always be questioned about where you are from. If you are an outsider , good luck.

Pluses: Good: The community college is pretty affordable, and it offers a variety of classes people can take for recreation. Crime is low enough for people to feel safe while walking around at night. Good lake for riding boats and other watercraft. There an Aquatic Center with a wave pool, water slide, kiddie pool, and spas. The library is open for many hours during the day. Temperatures are warm (it never snows.) Virtually no earthquakes or hazardous weather. Monsoons are fun to witness. Community services, such as Interagency, are very helpful.
Minuses: Bad: The city bus has insufficient routes, there is no Greyhound station (for roundtrips outside of Havasu, people have to pay $100 extra to use a service that connects to another city), airport doesn't transport folks to California, lack of high tech jobs, lack of diversity of things to buy in stores (many items have to be ordered online), only a few Internet Service Providers (costs are high for DSL, and there are insufficient choices for consumers), rent is too expensive for people working at minimum wage jobs. Many stores close in the early evening.

Pluses: At least the BIRDS are still free!
Minuses: THE OFFICIALS THAT RUN THE TOWN!
A great place to... STAY AWAY FROM!
Watch out for a town where the SHERIFF is the PROPERTY APPRAISER/TAX COLLECTOR!

Pluses: Apex, NC, is a fast growing town outside Cary and Raleigh, NC. Current population is approximately 31,000. In 1997, it was 10,000.
Modern subdivisions surround the quaint downtown, and there are several neighborhoods within walking distance of the downtown.
Apex schools are part of the Wake County Public School System, and are administered at the County level, including school assignments.
The schools are well-rated and considered desirable.
Proximity to Cary and Raleigh amenities, but preservation of small town vibe.
Affordable home options.
None worth worrying about.

Pluses: Pros: "Nobody walks in LA" is so not true. I lived in "Weho" for 8 years and did a TON of walking. There are so many interesting little residential streets... and the business streets change so much from block to block; trendy to trashy to eccentric & artsy.
Minuses: Cons: The drunks spilling out of bars on the nearby Sunset and Santa Monica boulevards stumbling LOUDLY to their cars they parked on your nice little tree lined street... screaming, puking in the bushes, sirens, cars crashing.
Pluses: Pros: Greenest most tree-lined residential streets in all of California.
Minuses: Cons: Seems to be the Geriatric, Kidney Dialysis, Funeral home capital of CA. judging from all the businesses you see while driving down the street.
Pluses: Pros: Sonora is scenically beautifully. So many pretty places to go. If you love nature, you'll NEVER be bored... you'll always be mesmerized, and you'll always find new places to visit.
Minuses: Cons: there can be some sketchy folks. It actually had one of the larger meth crackdowns in the state a few years ago... so there can be some "back country" folkage.. but as long as you keep to yours and your own and be a positive citizen in the community, you're golden.

Pluses: Quiet, less expensive housing than in neighboring Huntington West Virginia,good public library system,competent & well-equipped volunteer fire department,little to no violent crime,very good schools.
Minuses: Speed trap,gasoline and all utility prices higher than in WV,completely "dry" by local option ( this may be a "plus" depending on your perspective), no public transportation,very few jobs,very little diversity of populace( overwhelmingly lower to middle class Christian Caucasians)
Oct. 22, 2007
Pluses: Warm, friendly town in a peaceful, rural settings yet only 20 minutes from booming Oxford, cultural capital of the South.
Gracious, giving people
Lovely old homes (and still affordable!)
Level Five schools (State's highest rating)
Super hunting and fishing (world's largest crappie was caught here)
Annual Water Melon Carnival and Hobo Gathering
Casey Jones Railroad Museum
A growing artists community
An active Main Street Program . . . the list goes on!
Minuses: Still too many empty storefronts on Main Street. But that shouldn't last long.
Needs a good B&B . . . or three.
A Good Place To . . .
Enjoy a vacation, raise a family, open a business, retire

Friendly people, public and private schools, midway between Jackson and Memphis, within 20 miles from Delta State University, Mississippi Delta Community College branch on Main Street, nice churches
Nothing to do, no growth or growth potential, few jobs, poverty, shopping choices are SuperValu or Family Dollar.

Pluses: Mostly quiet town with good people.
Minuses: Low income. Not much work unless you drive average of 20 miles.
A great place to... Raise children.

Pluses: Quiet, good restaurants and bagel stores. Close to New York City. Good libraries.
Minuses: Traffic, deficient in parks. Annoying street fairs on every block during the summer.
A great place to... Sit out on the back deck and watch fireflies.
Walk your dog.
Pluses: small town, nice people. You can walk up and down the ave for exercise. You can walk to get Pizza. Cute town.
A great place to... raise children
Moved to Harrisburg for my Husbands job and miss Forty Fort. We grew up in Dallas, and i thought i would miss Dallas a lot when we moved to Forty-Fort, but I didnt. Forty Fort is more conveinant and easy to get to anywhere.
Pluses: family friendly rural community with Irish heritage celebrated
at the drop of a hat! A catholic community with a strong Irish Catholic heritage.
Minuses: isolated from major metro areas. Drive times to those areas are over an hour drive time one way. Secondary & higher educational opportunities are a challenge. So to is ready access to major health centers due to the same circumstances.
A great place to... raise a family in a strong christian backround and share the family's happenings among life lasting friends. Be in an agriculture based business.
I am the third child of Robert & Ann 'McQuillin' Dorsey. Patrick Joseph is my name. Birth date 10-06-50.

Pluses: West Newton is located along the Youghiogheny River Trail. It has been designated as one of six Trail Town models along the Great Allegheny Passage. In the next five years people will see a new face to the community, and the development of a completely different business perspective. Have heart those of faith, our community is going to be something very special, not just for the citizens of the community, but for the entire region. See you on the river!
A great place to... bike, hike, canoe, fish, boat, relax and enjoy the day.

Pluses: Fountain Inn is still the "quaint" southern town where folks can call each other by their first names.
It is only about five miles from major shopping yet far enough away from the everyday hustle and bustle.
Minuses: Right now there are several empty buildings that need to be filled. This will happened in the near future as the "sprawl" of homeownership heads this way.
A great place to... live and have your office located here.
