I'm looking to break free from the People's Republik of New Jersey, after having a girlfriend who was born and raised in Kentucky, and being on vacation there for 2 weeks. I absolutley love the place. Love the laws, love the people, love the air and the fact that it doesn't smell, Love the water! I love everything about your state! Right now, I'm a Network Specialist for a For-Profit University with campuses all across the state (none in Kentucky) and this same school is paying for my education within the school. Basically, for working here, I get free classes. I should have my Bachelors Degree in Computer Information Systems sometime within the next 3 years. My girlfriend and I are doing what we can to save money, and my girlfriend's parents want to move back too, so they will probably help us out financially. I will be going on vacation again this year, and will probably spend another 2 weeks in between Owensboro and Henderson sometime in June, July, or August. Between now and then, I'd like to get some ideas on land prices per acre. We'd love to buy anywhere between 50 and 500 acres, and I'd prefer to be as far away from major cities as possible, however, Owensboro is pretty much an average town compared to where I live, despite being Kentucky's 3rd largest City, I'd have no problems living on the outskirts of town, far enough away from urban sprawl, but close enough that I can drive for 15 to 30 minutes to convienient shopping and schools. I'd like to be semi-rural. I enjoyed visiting my girlfriend's grandparents who live pretty much between Owensboro and Henderson on Rt. 60. I enjoyed the fact that I could walk out their back door and fire off a rifle or shotgun and nobody really gives a crap, and there's no risk of hitting anybody because there's nobody in sight for miles. Edit: The photo in my avatar was taken there actually! God I miss being out there! If anybody has any recommendations, land for sale, info on water table depths, links to online resources, or other information that could benefit me, everything would be greatly appreciated. Go Wildcats!
