Hey Billy - I'm 10 min from Hunter and am constantly riding around the area you mentioned. Most areas of Catskill real estate are still a buyers market. I'll PM you, if I see anything. Having said that, as much as I like this area, there are definitely down sides. Winters here, depending on the year, can be long and depressing and that's coming from someone who snow shoes and embraces the season. Nothing like southern California, as I'm sure you know. It sounds like your probably at the point in life where you might be retired or soon to be and on a fixed income, if that's the case - fine; if not, depending on one's vocation, making a living up here can be challenging at best. Basic services like a near by hospital that you would actually want to go too are questionable. Schools, if that's an issue are case by case, some OK and most dreadful, in terms of providing a kid an education that meets the demands of today's world. There's a prevailing good ol'e boy attitude about anything civic or for that matter anything else, that's of the "good enough" school of thought that perpetuates ignorance and complacency. Finally, the area you mentioned around here (Greene County), has been ravaged by flooding the last 15 or so years, making too many sections of streams and adjacent real estate quiet a mess. Fifty year, Hundred year and even Two Hundred year floods are meaningless terms now. ( careful with flood maps and real estate) We all know people tend to look back at things through rose colored glasses, but all the serious fly fishermen who I know, all assure me Schoharie Creek just isn't the water it used to be twenty years ago, in terms of fish and bugs. Apologies to the Greene County Chamber of Commerce, but that's how I see it. If you really want to spend quality time fly fishing and less time driving, I would seriously consider the Roscoe Area/ Hancock Area. Having said the above, I could still see a good fit for some one here, given the right conditions, needs and specific location.
