I learned this business in the US Air Force and I have been working in it for a couple of years since I got out of the service. Of course all along I have been looking for a chance to get back to Northern VA. My wife and I both come from this area. In the short term we are going to look for Leesburg VA apartments for rent, but the idea is to find a piece of land and build a place of our own. That is not so easy to do obviously, this is a really heavily populated and the land that is left is really expensive. When I was growing up there were still a lot of rural areas in this part of the world. Now they talk about all of the Civil War battlefields being lost to urbanization, although I suppose that you might really talk about suburbanization in this case.
I would love to find a place that is really close to where I am going to work, because parking is a real issue there. They are not going to give me a space to park, I get put on a list. That is pretty common around here. When you start at a place you have to wait for other people to leave or retire or whatever, then you move up the list and eventually they give you a place to park your car. In the meanwhile I would have to do something else, public transport is the best option if you do not have a free place to park. If you have to pay for one, that is going to be really expensive. I would love it if I could ride my bike to work whenever the weather was good, obviously without it taking an hour.
