Yeah, we’re very rural in our area. I’m not far from Chanceywd. Taxes and some other stuff still apply though….Good morning RCW…I am guessing it’s one of the following….
My in-laws live in Upstate NY…there are only a couple reasons I have found to be there…1. Love of High taxes. 2. Love of BS laws. 3. Love of traffic and angry people in high density living areas 4. Love of family that takes priority. 5. Love of the best state in a Natural sense…it’s the best state (western NY, finger lakes, Great Lakes, several mountain ranges (adirondacks simply the best), and they have a coast….it’s awesome….except for numbers 1 thru 3. IMO there is nothing like the adirondacks…despite 1 - 3 I’d still consider buying buy property there in retirement if I could afford it.
