The other thing I am looking forward to is riding again.... I like to ride, but La. Sucks, too f'in hot, too f'in flat! And the camping... I miss the smokies!
Winchester is a nice town, just make sure you are in the school district for John Handley HS if your kids are going to be of that age. The city schools are better than most.
Harpers Ferry is a beautiful area, but I don't know much about the schools or whatnot. Same with Shanondale.
Just a thought; have you looked into Prince William (Haymarket) or Fauquier (Warrenton) counties? Assuming you will be working off of Blue Ridge Mt. Rd, it is an easy commute and the schools are rather good from K-12.
