Default Uh oh......Truggie moving to Richmond???!!!

I've been asked to leave the Great State of Texas for Virginia. Has not sunk in yet, though....
Of course, I can find another job....or pick the right 6 numbers, but this looks like what I need to do.
Anyone in that area.....what should I expect? I need elbow room, so what's a good rural area for a commute to Short Pump?

I would look around the Alberta area for a place to stay. It's less than an hour from Richmond. South Hill is about 15 minutes away. South Hill is no mecca but it has a Walmart and other shopping centers.

I stay in Alberta when I hunt in VA. Everything is close enough that I don't feel stranded but everything is spread out enough to shoot a centerfire rifle in the back yard.

Truggie Virginia?
Just doesn't have the same ring to it.
I never cared for the Richmond area, although you'll be close enough to some of the prettiest mountains in the East. G.W. Natl. Forest and Jefferson Natl. Forest. and a short hop to Pisgah in N.C.
Good luck

You do know they just elected a POS democrat for their governor up there. That state will become very anti-gun in a hurry if he has anything to do with it.

Good luck Truggie,I know I would never leave Texas for any job.
I've been in every state except Hawaii in my life as an over the road trucker,and this is the only place I'd ever call home.

South Hill? Alberta? Sorry, no. Short Pump is a suburb of Richmond VA, just West on I-64. Ancestor ran the tavern that gave it the name. South Hill is about 100 miles away.

From Short Pump, head West up I-64. Goochland County is 6 miles up the road, and you are getting into country. Rt 288 runs South off I-64, and swings over into Powhatan County. Real estate in Powhatan is not bad, 30 minute commute. Powhatan has one zip code for county (23139 if you want to shop realtor.com) 5 traffic lights, one WalMart, no 7-11s (other than State Route 711). Powhatan has a rifle deer season, Goochland does not.

Drop me a PM, can get you some info, can even suggest a Realtor if you need one. Fishing is also good around here. Shall issue state for CCW, no waiting period, registration or permits for ordinary firearms, several good LGSs in the area.
