Re: John Stewart's 80's wanderlust
Not sure about CHEAPER taxes in VA, especially Northern, VA. There, they tax you to PARK in your own DRIVEWAY!!! Maybe John was Civil War buff (he seemed to have liked history) and wanted to see some of the area where it was fought. Also, having been in the Cumberland Three who did an entire album dedicated to the Civil War, maybe Shenandoah country was alluring to him. It IS beautiful country.....Joe P
I could certainly be wrong, John. My memory is getting foggier.
As it was, he must not have stayed in VA for too many years. I'll bet his property taxes were cheaper!
I recall reading that he and Buffy wanted to get son Luke out of a climate (not meteorological, however) that they deemed unhealthy for a young boy. They were worried about various influences on a kid. We can probably all imagine what those might have been. Thus the move to Virginia, but I'd never heard anything about New England or New York.
