The Release Your Inner Hillbilly VT Meeting!  (11 Answers)

With so much talk about VT meetings around here, I thought I'd announce a new one. I've not been to this event, but watching pumpkins fly through the air with the greatest of ease, and the hanging around in a cornfield in early winter, drinking beer, building fires, and wearing plaid is oddly compelling to me. How about you?


On November 3, come to Bridgeville, Delaware, to watch the Pumpkin Chunkin' contest. Bridgeville is sort of in the middle of nowhere, so about two hours—or less—from many of the Mid-Atlantic's somewhere spots: Baltimore, DC, and Philadelphia.

We'll meet at that fabulous Jimmy's Grille in Bridgeville, probably around noon. Better fried chicken, biscuits, and pies you'd be hard pressed to find, and then we'll carpool to the Pumpkin Chunkin' field.

Cost is7 per person, and2 per car for parking.

We can (and should) bring food and beverages, including beer, wine, whatever; folding chairs and blankets are helpful, too.

If anyone wants to travel in for this major fest, we'll have drinks and dinner in Baltimore the night before.

This link should explain all:

And, specifics will follow.

C'mon, it's time to release your inner hillbilly!

Advice on some good apartments in Wilmington  (13 Answers)

I am moving to wilmington next month and wanted to know names of some good apartments. I checked out the ratings of some of these apartments here:


And most of them have bad ratings/reviews. After reading some of the reviews, I cant even think of moving in there. Any recommendations from ppl living in wilmington. Anything below 1000$/month is good for me.

I like something close to the office. My office is located in downtown (CHase bank). Even something in the range of 10-15 mins drive is good enough.

Thanks for your advice

Bethany or Fenwick?  (2 Answers)

Hi there--I'm planning a beach vacation in September with my family. We've never been to Bethany or Fenwick and we're wondering where we should try to find a house. My son will be two years old by then. My parents and brother will come as well. We'd love somewhere right by the beach where we could also walk to restaurants, shops, etc. My son is very active and loves to see new places and people. Any suggestions of areas, streets, rental agencies, etc would be appreciated. Fenwick sounds really nice but a rental agent told my mom she thought Bethany would be better because Fenwick is so small. What is Fenwick like and how do the two compare? Thanks for any insights!

Newcastle v. Kent/Sussex for Fun/Classy Sr. Lady--Help!!!

I'm in my early 60's but still working and having fun, keep myself up and would like to have a good life with what's left. Have done tons of homework on taxes and property values, so my question is: where would you live if you were me? I like to be busy; would love to meet an upscale, educated gent (preferably Caucasian); want to feel safe where I live; may go back to university for Masters; need train/plane to NYC; and love eating at a wide variety of ethnic and different places.
Is it worth paying 1.30% tax rate in Newcastle? Or should I stay around Kent county where it is .77%?
Any suggestions are so very appreciated.
By the way, Hockessin is showing up on alot of Sr. boards as a great place. Anyone know what a nice 2 BR home/condo/townhouse would be there?
Any why can I not find any LOFTS in Newark or anywhere in Delaware? What gives with a State this old and developed?
Any information would help tremedously!

Where should I go?  (5 Answers)

I'm from NYC and very tired of living in the city. For some reason, Delaware is very appealing to me. My only problem is, I don't know where to move to in DE. After some basic research, I've come to like the northern part by PA, like New Castle and Newark, but haven't gone to physically look at the areas yet. Any advice on good neighborhoods or where to look? My husband and I are expecting our first child and we want a family neighborhood/suburb with room to play. Haven't a clue on the cost of houses, but just need some starting places to begin our search. Please help!

Apartment Advice Around Dover  (2 Answers)

I just found out last week that I'm going to be stationed at Dover Air Force Base in February 2005. So now I've started the info gathering adventure on the area even though I'm still in New Orleans. I've searched around online and found a few apartment complexes of interest: Baytree Apartments Woodmill Apartments Village of Westover Apartments They all seem to have similar styling, and I think they're all owned by the same company. Does anyone have info on these, like if they're nice in person, in relatively good parts of town, etc? I think my fiancee and I are going to take a trip up to Dover in October, but we'd like to be armed with a lot of info beforehand so that we don't waste any time. And if any of you guys plan on being in New Orleans over between now & January, let me know and I'll buy you a drink. :-)

Wilmington Nightlife?  (20 Answers)

I'm in Wilmington semi-regularly, and have to believe that there's more in the way of nightlife than Kahunaville and the Newark bars. With all those banks employing all those twenty- and thirty-somethings, there has to be stuff to do late into the night, at least on the weekends, right? What do the locals do for fun, when not escaping to Philly? Thanks in advance for any info.
