Xrlq a Virgin(ian)

I guess it’s okay to tell you that Xrlq is no longer a Californian, since he just announced it. Congratulations to him on his new home on a three-acre lot in Virginia.

There’s just one thing that I don’t understand. If he wanted a home on a three-acre lot, why didn’t he just get one here in California?

  1. Virginia is not a bad place.

    Why here in California, that just means more land for the government to take away. And seriously, what good is 3 acres when you can’t do anything with it. (Tahoe-Sierra Preservation Council, Inc. vs. Tahoe Regional Planning Agency).

  3. Do you have any idea of the cost of a 3-acre lot in CA? Yowsa!

  4. I think that was his point.

  5. I’m sure there’s something reasonably priced up in Modoc County.

    Of course, that would mean moving a thousand miles from the Middle of Nowhere….

  6. Anthony – one of the bay area papers recently ran an article on how the average home price in Modoc County just last year crossed the USD$100,000 threshold.

  7. Here’s another thing for you NOT to understand, Patterico: how’s an unhinged lefty like me manage to live on 5 unspoiled acres in Southern California just 20 minutes from the beach?

  8. You’re homeless?

  9. Asinistra, you inherited your land from a Conservative father.

  10. Two very funny replies. Wrong, but funny.

  11. Asinistra: What will happen when the owner returns from vacation? Hope you have an escape plan 😉

  12. Asinistra: lemme guess, you’re a janitor at Camp Pendleton, and it takes you 20 minutes to walk from there to the beach?

  13. Asinistra,

    You live in Baja California?

  14. X-man,

    Virginia’s a wonderful place, the further you go south and west, the better it gets. Check out the State Parks, rent a cabin, go fishing, eat some BBQ, it’s different from anything you find in California, or KC. Give it a try, check out Tangier Island, the Eastern Shore, the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel, the Mariner’s Museum in Newport News, Skyline Drive, the Blue Ridge Parkway. Take your time and smell the roses. Good luck.
