We have been in the Pinehurst/Aberdeen area for two months, about a month longer than we plan to stay anywhere else we may travel in the future. When we first set out on this RV journey one of the things we wanted to accomplish over the long haul was to keep our eye out for places that we may call our home in the future when we no longer want to RV our way around the land.
Before we decided to purchase an RV and travel the land we were contemplating retiring in a sticks and bricks somewhere other than where we were in Texas. Where this would be depended on a lot of things but first and foremost it had to be somewhere that we really liked and had a lot to offer. Well what we found here in North Carolina in the Pinehurst/Aberdeen/Southern Pines area was a place that we could live in the future.
Why would we consider this place?
- lots of activity in this area – festivals, live music, horses
- a really pretty part of the USA with mature long leaf pines and mixed hardwood forests
- affordable although taxes are a bit higher than desired
- good medical facilities
- very friendly people
So this area was originally on our itinerary as just a layover to watch the daughter’s last season of softball yet it may well end up being our future home. But then again the next place we go to may be even better… That is why we chose to see the land this way…
So today it is off to watch the softball games we thought were going to be cancelled but that were rescheduled after all. Then tomorrow we will leave Aberdeen and set out sights on Spartanburg South Carolina to stay for a couple of weeks and watch our daughter's last ASUN tournament.
