Pros: Large rural areas, good climate, inexpensive taxes. The specific area we moved to gives us easy/quick access to a spring fed creek and huge lake. Also Crystal CLEAR water.
Cons: Mountainous area means the ground is very rocky. Most people you talk to say they grow “lots of rocks” We lucked out to find a place that wasn’t on a cedar glade and has pretty decent soil.
