I spend a lot of time further North in the Hershey area. I absolutely love it up there but for some specific reasons I don't want to be physically that far from Baltimore County. (I just don't want to live here anymore)
I just moved here and don't want to be here anymore either.

Moving guns into PA is as simple as it should be, no registration or bs. All long guns are just a 4473, all hand guns are a 4473 and a 1 page form(technically unconstitutional and 2a groups fight it from time to time). Transporting them is a lot like MD's BS law, cased, unloaded etc. LTCF/CCW permits are cheap, quick and easy to get, so pistols can be carried most places, rifles still have ancient and onerous game commision regs governing them, and can't be loaded in a vehicle. No problem with NFA stuff, no such thing as "assault" weapons, no restriction on mags or accessories, and FFL transfers are generally cheap, my local guy Winter Firearms does them for $20 at his house, and will work with any FFL that is willing to ship him a gun.

Yeah Hummelstown is nice

Super rural feeling but only like a mile from restraunts and stores and only 10 minutes from Harrisburg if you needed something more city for some reason

Plus there is a Sheetz right there off 322

I do enjoy a good Pretzle bun hot dog for $1

It's funny how close most of the central PA cities are to nothing. go east or north of Harrisburg, and it's really nice. Depending on how sparse of an area you want, there is a place to call home. Most of the state is just empty Appalachia with pockets of civilation spread around. The PA rt 125 ride from Ft Indiantown gap to Knoebels is epic, especially on 2 wheels.

The real problem with school taxes is that they can change very easily. Up the road from me is Spring Grove school district. I don't know the amounts but a few years ago they raised their school tax rate to an astronomical level. This forced some retirees to relocate.
I must have been given bad information.

What happened to Spring Grove sounds like a nightmare.

Growing up, I spent a lot of time on The Swatty (Swatara Creek) in canoes, tubes, etc. (I'm from Colonial Park)

You might be hassled for a whole 8 minutes to get a CCW permit if you don't already have a PA accepted permit.

Enjoy the freedom if you do in fact make it to free country.
How did that happen? I guess each county is different.
Wayne county wanted 2 references, of which they mailed them like a 5 question questionnaire. When they received them back, I was just in the office long enough for her to run a NCIC, take my picture, and laminate the card.

I am 20 miles from Honesdale, and 20 miles from Dickson City/Scranton. The 2010 Census of Preston Township was about 1,000 people.
I love it out here.

So I went and looked at houses in southern PA this weekend and I love the area

Far enough away from crowded areas to feel like you can get peace and quiet but close enough that I wouldn't need to change jobs

House prices are significantly lower....school taxes are significantly higher...but income tax is observably lower

The real deal sealer for me was when I checked out the local elementary school.

IT HAD SWINGSETS!

Maryland banned swings at schools like 30 years ago because kids could get hurt. PA apparently doesn't baby kids so sold. Seeing those swingsets in the school playground was the final nail in the coffin of my Maryland residency

It's just a matter of finding the right house now

Bring your guns. I did. No one knows you'll have guns unless you tell them.
