I agree with Hellboy.  I've got a buddy who's local law enforcement, He says they get calls all the time about people doing open carry.  They are required to respond even though it's legal.  Most of the time it's just some guy who's been hunting and hasn't removed his side arm before going into Lowe's or the gas station.  They have to show up and talk to the guy for a second then go fill out a report.  Drives him wild, but it's part of the job to hold the publics hand.

Grew up in Mecklenburg county, lived in Farmville, Evergreen (a post office and train station between Farmville and Appomattox), and now have a majority of my family down near Lynchburg.  I am up in Charles Town, WV right now but plan Lynchburg as my rally point should things get interesting this year...  We have about 150 acres of land down in Mecklenburg county, plus some 'relative'ly owned areas in Charlotte County.  I am expecting those areas to be much safer than the tristate area when people get hungry enough to get brave.

HF is only a  hop skip and jump from me (15mi).  Hiding in the woods along the AT, it's nice but traffic busy during hiking season.  Lots of traffic on one of the shortest sections of the AT there is.  Lots of folks hike this part to say "I hiked the AT".

Local KOA is just a city park with campers: Nice, but crowded and expensive. 

There are a few small and primitive places west of I-81, but lack the trails.

Currently, we live in West Alexandria near Annandale, in a place called Lincolnia.

However, last September, we purchased 45 acres (half pasture) near Brandy Station in Culpeper County.  As soon as we can make the 1924 house habitable (literally), we (wife, two year old, and 5 German Shepherd dogs) are all relocating.  We hope by Summer, but that may be too optimistic.

(My wife wanted the place for Schutzhund training, and I wanted a homestead.  It's a happy compromise, even if I'll have to be out the door by 5AM  to commute back to DC.  My wife currently commutes down 95 to Fredericksburg - so she's very pleased).

P.S.  If you drive though that neck of the woods and notice a nice 1959 Massey Ferguson 65 sitting near a beat up old farm house . . . .  that's us (or will be).

I've been in Va. for all of my 42 years.  Parts of my family have been here since 1607.  Can't wait to leave.  Currently, family committments keep me here for a few more years.  Gotta get to flyover country.  I've figured out that everyplace within 200 miles of the ocean (Atlantic or Pacific) sucks.  The salt air does somethign that puts a chip on people's shoulders and causes the governments to be overbearing.  I would settle for the Shenendoah Valley, though.  It's far enough away from the coast.  All my hatred aside, I surely understand General Lee fighting for Virginia.  Also, we can badmouth Virginia, but some SOB from somewhere else better keep his mouth shut.

How cool is that? Power is on, and I'm warm and toasty, listening to ep #367. I think later a little video game action, then moving around my preps a little and cleaning a few weapons.

15,000 years!  Now that is FFV (First Families of Virginia).  And my grandmother thought she was something because she was in the Jamestown Society  ;)

That's pretty cool.  Most folks don't realize there were humans here that far back.  My dad found a couple arrowheads in his field that the Va. Historical Society dated to 5-10,000 years.

Newly transplanted to the greater Richmond area from Long Island, New York seeking a lower cost of living and better quality of life.
I'm renting now but am looking to buy at least 6 acres in Chesterfield County as my homestead where I plan on building a greenhouse with aquaponics and employing other permaculture principles around the property.  Hoping to get this off the ground with the next year or so.

Would love to network with my fellow preppers around here!

Think twice about Chesterfield - becoming more and more urbanized with high taxes and government oversite.  Check out Charles City, King William, Amelia, maybe the counties south of Chesterfield.  I grew up in Henrico and Hanover, now in New Kent, and wishing I was in Gloucester. The spread grows constantly.

You can always buy a barge and anchor it out in the chesapeake. Only about 40K for a used one - cheaper than the same sized piece of suburban real estate. :-p

Also - goat - we still need to grab coffee.

Anyone else in hampton roads that's up for a get-together, I have some work to do on my smithy, but a cup of hot chocolate and a 2500 degree charcoal fire should warm things up nicely for a hammer-in.

Yorktown, VA. I have live in the Hampton roads area for eight years after leaving SC. I miss the woods!

Whoa. I grew up in Yorktown. Right across 17 from the battlefields. That's awesome. '

I now spend my time up in Loudoun county, near Oatlands plantation, after almost 15 years in side the beltway (Arlington/DC).

Charlottesville here.  Family is in Lynchburg - that is my planned BOL.  Anyone else in the Cville area?

My long term (next 5 years) is looking to get as much land as I can down around C-ville or slightly south. Maybe Louisa, not sure. Depends on the missus ;)

Thanks! The missus is on a 2 - 3 year leave-the-beltway plan. We'll see if I can speed that up, but she is in charge :) We did see some things looking around various realty sites that were old federal style houses on 20 or so acres that looked beautiful. I'd rather get another 0 after "20" but I need to win the lottery first I think :)

Still getting used to Virginia, but I am a bit surprised that you have to pay tax on a car you already own each year. What is that about?  There is already property tax and income tax here - so why tax my already owned car?   Hmmmmm......

Hey guys, my name is Van and I am 34 years old and live in Newport News, Virginia.
I have been married for almost 3 years now and I have been listening to TSP for almost a year. I finally joined the members support brigade in December and have been trying to catch up to the latest podcast while at work. I have started growing my own garden plants from seed since mid January and I am waiting for march/April timeframe to plant them in our raised bed garden this spring. We have a 55gallon drum setup as a rain barrel to water our garden and we have started buying some food grade buckets for food storage. My wife is starting to come on board with being prepared for our future and we are looking at investing in a berkey water filter system soon. Well I just wanted to introduce myself and say hello and I am looking forward to learning even more on the forums. Thanks and God Bless.

Thanks!

Try for West End or Henrico County... Short Pump ain't too terrible either - a straight shot down Broad Street and you're in the heart of Richmond proper in 20 minutes. Stay away from the Fan, VCU, and for god's sake, don't pick a residence within walking distance of Hull Street Road anywhere near the Island. Immediately across the james river (which is about 500 feet across at that point) you've got some wonderful townhomes and live-aboves and a decently low crime rate - and Virginia is an open-carry state, and it's easy to get a concealed permit, so rock out with your heat out.

I'd be happy to meet up with you if you're in town for a while - I'm about 70 miles east in Hampton, but I travel up there frequently and know some folks that can help show you around.

Definitely try the irish pub, Sine's (like... Shinea's). Epic, EPIC food. And not a horrible section of town. That's down in Shockoe slip/shockoe bottom. Stay away from there for residential stuff, since it's prone to flooding. Everyone's used to it, so they just have dyed concrete floors they can hose off out into the street, and reopen a day later. Southern ingeneuity at it's best.  ::)

Hey, thanks for the response.  We are definitely going to be looking around the west part of town as the wife's job would be over there.  I've been digging into crime rates by zip code, school quality, and such things and looking at prefered areas we could possibly live in.

First step we decided on a family vacation.  We are going to orient ourselves for a few days in Richmond area then head to Williamsburg for family fun.  Just a week to get the flavor of the area before we dive into the details of moving.

The chances are very good we will be in VA before the end of the year.  My wife likes to push forward with these things once she sets her mind to it.  I suspect I'll be in VA several times in the next couple months...

I would love to meet up with you on one of my return trips to the area.  So you live in the Hampton area, is there any good sport fishing out of there?  I lived within smell of the Pacific most of my life and miss ocean fishing lol.

The driving force was that my wife got a job with chevron down here. Coming into my job it was my intent to make myself indispensable. I even wrote that on this like just starting review sheet. It also helped that the company has great leadership and have common sense. Its one of the reasons I took the job. Combination of luck and serious hard work and now that I am disadvantaged because I'm not on site and can't listen to the customer's suggestions on a regular basis, I force myself to work just a wee bit harder.

I didn't know how I was going to like this place, but all I can say after living all over the country, I think I like this place best. If Northern Virginia was cut off from Virginia I think I'd like Virginia best. Unfortunately its kind of a lost cause blue state now since it has been gobbled up by the Federal Capital.

trjg,

What do you mean by "gobbled up by the Federal Capital"?

I grew up in NOVA and over the years have been moving southward as urban sprawl has consumed every remote area I have tried to call home,
my last and most likely final move was to the agricultural county of Orange Va 100 miles south of NOVA (Not Our Virginia).

By viewing the election results for the state by county you'll see that the the county's of Prince William, Fairfax & Loudoun had strong Dem support.

Prince William has a large Latino population that I'm sure all turned out to vote for their savior (probably more than once using different ID)

Fairfax has a large Asian population along with numerous federal workers who want to keep their unproductive jobs that I'm sure also all turned out to vote for their savior.

I don't know what the hell is up with Loudoun I guess being the highest income county in the nation the majority are probably overpaid fed workers as well.

I know Virginia and NOVA quite well now. I've lived in Fredericksburg, Blacksburg, Virginia Beach, Manassas, and Woodbridge. I've worked in Virginia Beach, Arlington and in Tysons Corner. Everything you've said is what I've heard. I know orange very well for having never lived there since I've driven through it at least a few hundred or so times. Love driving through it, except that damn 25 mile an hour road that is at the intersection of 20 and 15. God its annoying. I used to buy meats at the farmer's market in Fredericksburg (very nice by the way) from this family that has their farm in Orange. My Audi broke down in Orange one time and had to wait like 2 hours for somebody to pick met up.

What do I mean about the gobbled up? Washington, DC has completely taken over not only the entire North of the state, but now is capable of essentially dictating the entire policies of the state. Every dollar that exists in Northern Virginia is essentially derived from the federal purse. I tried explaining to this chick at one of my contract jobs that she (and I) didn't pay any taxes. Needless to say she didn't want to hear any of that. (Government contractors don't pay taxes, they shuffle the same taxed productivity back to the gubbmnt)

Without a doubt the best place in Virginia (in my opinion) is South Western Virginia (minus roanoke).

We tend to like things here in Southwest Virginia.

Northern Virginia's proximity to Washington D.C. is part of the reason it receives such a large sum in salaries and wages paid by the government. It's not only that, though. The state receives 12% of the total of The Department of Defense's procurement spending and is home to 20+ military bases including NS Norfolk (The Atlantic Fleet), MCB Quantico (US Marine Corps Crossroads, FBI Academy, DEA, etc), Langley AFB and Fort A.P. Hill.

Id go for Goochland then. It's  a lot more rural than Henrico or Hanover.  West end of Henrico is tightly packed population wise and Hanover is more towards the north and east of Henrico which wraps around the city.

I'm not sure if this is the right spot for this, if not, would someone please correct me:

All, I'm looking for a partner for a venture into Custom Holsters that lives within 90-120 minutes of Loudoun County, and I wanted to reach out to this community first, before trying to go wider with my search. I won't put all of the details out here... but if anyone is interested in a part time venture to make some side money, and likes working with their hands, I'm willing to chat. Responsibilities etc. are flexible. I had my former partner decide he was no longer interested earlier this year, and I have had some changes in my life that mean i can't run the business completely buy my self.

Did any of you make it to this weekend's gun show near Dulles?  I went on Friday and it was a madhouse.  Had to park a quarter mile away.  Long lines to get in.  The longest lines inside the show were for ammo deals -- cases, reloads, etc.  One of the ammo vendors was trying to work a deal to sell back their spot for Saturday and Sunday, because they were almost wiped out by Friday at 8.  If you were looking for a bargain, I'm going to guess that hunting rifles, hunting shotguns, 19th century guns, and maybe knives were the places to find them.  Those were certainly the least crowded booths.  I heard one guy complaining about the price of a "tactical" gun, and the vendors honest response: "I know, and yet it will sell.".  Complete ARs were $1800-$2500.  Yugo SKS's were $449-$499 cash.  Mosin Nagant's were $275.  Pmags were $40.

The best line I overheard was, "Dude, you just spent a thousand dollars.  If you don't buy her something..."

It is easy to get sidetracked by all of the information.  Pick one thing you want to accomplish or do better.  If it seems to big then break it down into smaller tasks.  Celebrate the little achievements.  Try to learn something new everyday.  Try to practice a skill every day. 

This forum is a great community of people with a vast set of skills and abilities.  I am grateful to the person who introduce me and  grateful to all of the people I get to learn from every time I am here.

@WB132,

I too am in NOVA and would support a meetup.  Perhaps it might be beneficial to be more specific on what sort of meetup you're aiming for, such as meeting up for a meal/fellowship, taking a class as a group, doing an activity, etc. 

I for example would definitely show up to any meetup to shoot at a local gun range or someone's private property that's near by.  I'm a huge fan of shotgun sports and go shoot trap nearly every weekend that the weather is nice over at the Bull Run Public Shooting Center and anyone is welcome to join me anytime I go.

I have ccw, I don't want  the attention.


I agree with Hellboy.  I've got a buddy who's local law enforcement, He says they get calls all the time about people doing open carry.  They are required to respond even though it's legal.  Most of the time it's just some guy who's been hunting and hasn't removed his side arm before going into Lowe's or the gas station.  They have to show up and talk to the guy for a second then go fill out a report.  Drives him wild, but it's part of the job to hold the publics hand.

I'm in the Tidewater, Hampton Roads area... to answer the OPr's question from 2008, lol
As far as open carry, I do every once n awhile more as an exercising of my right to do so.
I carry concealed 4 out of 5 times though. Tough with a Glock 23 but I make it work ;)
