I love the open spaces between the cities... especially in the fall with the changes in colors. The winters are just tough enough to make me feel manly without too much real danger and the spring is great with all the yellow forsythia bushes and purple redbud trees. Drive long enough and you'll cross a river or two.
Not from there wife is and we visit about 4 or 5 times a year.
I love the people. Living in the Rat Race that is Northern Virginia it is nice to see people wave when you drive by their house. Not just give you a dirty look.
Me I love the grass. You guys don't know how nice it is to not have to spend every waking minute working on your lawn to make it look half way nice.
Dang, you got chatty in a hurry...LOL
Anyway, I can care less for most of the larger cities in Ohio. I've lived in the Cleveland, Toledo, Akron/Canton areas. Now, back to SE Ohio and I don't want to live anywhere else. Just the sheer nature part of it all. Ohio is small land area wise, large population wise, but once you get to the country, it is just amazing. Northern part is flat, but the southern part is hills, hills and more hills. I loves me some mid-Ohio Valley living.
I'm from the northwest corner and admittedly a little biased,but it's arguably the best place to raise a family. Good schools, friendly people and home of the dumm-dumm sucker and the etch-a-scetch. When I bought my first home I asked for the key and the couple laughed and said they lost it 25 years ago and just never locked the door.
Because we're allowed Machineguns,Silencers,SBS,SBR, AOW's & D.D's
As a Firearm Dealer in Wood Co., it is always a pleasure to inform others that Machineguns,Silencers,SBS,SBR, AOW's & D.D's are legal in Ohio, and in turn they become future friends & customers!.
Wood Co. also used to be the "Pheasant Capital" of the World!. We used to have them everywhere along with Rabbits. My Childhood was filled with Hunting and Trapping too. Loved It!.
