Real Estate Tips:
Diversify your portfolio as much as possible. You do not want to have all of your investment funds in only one type of investment. Spread them out over stocks, real estate, and other investments in order to protect yourself should something bad happen in one area of the investment market. Keep in mind that there are investment opportunities past just traditional stocks and bonds. Commodities are an asset class with both risks and rewards but can provide hedges against inflation. Also look at real estate income trusts to invest into the real estate market without being tied to individual pieces of property.

    West Virginia is an eastern U.S. state in the tree-covered Appalachian Mountains. The town of Harpers Ferry, where the Shenandoah River meets the Potomac River, is the site of a famous Civil War–era raid. Surrounded by a national historical park, the town looks as it did in the 19th century, with many of the buildings open to the public as living-history museums.

    1. You can get the best methamphetamines in the general New England area in West Virginia other than that pretty much everything else sucks

    2. I was born in Moundsville WV. My uncle, a former mayor of the town, also was a tour guide at the Penitentiary! I've been to many of the places mentioned but need to visit more of the state. Several other places of note are Oglebay Park near Wheeling (well known for its Christmas lights), Dolly Sods Wilderness (not far from Seneca Rocks), The Gauley River world class whitewater rafting, The Greenbrier River Bike Trail, and the Greenbrier resort itself.

    3. Is West Virginia a good place to retire?
      Also, is West Virginia racist?
      My wife and I are looking for a place to retire.
      West Virginia seems like a good place to retire, but we do not know anything about West Virginia.
      Please advise.
      Thank you in advance!

    4. There’s Seneca caverns but there’s also Seneca rocks which is a mountain you can climb it takes about an hour and one e you get too the top it’s an amazing sight. I live 2 hours away from all this

    5. The "North Fork River" she mentions around Seneca Rock is the North Fork of the Potomac River. The Eastern Divide is close by. That's where all the waters on the east side of the Allegheny Mountain run into the Chesapeake Bay, on the west side, all the waters run to the Mississippi River.
      The people who live here still maintain a culture, which seems to be disappearing in the US nowadays.
