Hi all,

I live in Northern VA, work in Maryland. Been prepping this past year and its overwhelming how much there is to learn. I'm hoping to learn from other TSP listeners, maybe even from the same area, as I personally don't know a single other prepper, especially among my peers/age group. I'm 23 a few years out of college trying to take a realistic approach to all this.

Nokesville here.  Work in Woodbridge.

Nice I lived in Woodbridge last year till September of this year. Just off of Minneville. Moved to Louisiana and haven't looked back.

I'll actually be up in Fredericksburg the first week of December for work. My parents live there as well so I'll be staying there. I telecommute for my position in Tysons Corner. Used to commute from Woodbridge, and then Fredericksburg up to Tysons every day. Fun.

Glad I moved.

That great you escaped from "here", still plugging away not able to telecommute, but that's awesome your able to make that happen. Have many friends in the greater NoLa area, most that live there enjoy that location over NoVa.

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.
