good locale for cabin or retirement retreat

I am thinking of a good place to buy some land for hunting, maybe eventually put up a cabin or retirement place just to get away and have a quiet place in the woods. Some of my concerns were addressed in the hunting camps forum with my concerns about fracking. Obviously, no one wants this where they are going to live and so this puts a lot of PA out of the picture. Too bad, because I think north central PA with the elk and rural areas would be ideal. Would southern or northeast PA be a better bet? Maybe I will have to head south to southwestern VA. That is the Cumberland Gap area, home to Daniel Boone. Break out the flintlock! That could be the place.

Re: good locale for cabin or retirement retreat

i dont think there will be a county in pa that wont have gas issues at some point in time, and iam. not saying gas is a bad thing, but back to the camp issue when you do buy your land i would want some type of water on it, stream , river, springs, etc.this is what i looked for when i bought mine, good luck.

That is after he left Berks County Pennsylvania!

I certainly wouldn't cross N.C. Pa. off your list.

Re: good locale for cabin or retirement retreat

All I can say is you have two choices laurel, or none. Best bet is to go and explore.

Anybody can shoot deer on the farm ground....You earn it in the mountains.......

Re: good locale for cabin or retirement retreat

I would love to find a small tract of land in NC to build a small cabin......but I would be happy most anywhere in Pa..no real bad spots outside the cities.....

Yes, but other than that, he seems rational.

Hunting: 10% skill and 90% location.
