Well the wife and I have discussed it and made lots of phone calls, and I think we are going to try and move forward on this... although it looks like west Virginia is going to be the homestead... take advantage of the less expensive housing.
If anyone else wants to chime in I'll be glad to read your thoughts and insight.
And yes the better riding is definitely to the west.
