Are you a city person? Maybe a country person? Some people prefer to live by the water or up in the mountains. Which is your preference?
I used to live in the suburbs and enjoyed being so close to the city without actually being in the city. Now that I live in the country I can never go back! I love the peace and quiet and fresh air. Except when the farmers fertilize the fields, then it's not very fresh.
I grew up in the country, with farms all around. We got used to that 'country air' lol Where we live now, it's on wooded acreage so no farms, but still quite rural. I like being able to walk outside my door & go right into nature. Wouldn't change it for anything!
I've lived in pretty big mountains in Virginia, not the Blue Ridge, for the last year - while site owner was away. Lots of spectacular scenery. I always wondered why nobody has tried to capitalize on the mountains, like what is going on with the Smokies. You know set up an amusement park, tourist trap, yada yada.
