North Carolina has some pretty good opportunities with that. There are so many rich people in Mooresville that just lift their **** and don't wheel it you'd make a fortune! In all seriousness NC isn't a bad choice. I'd keep away from Pennsylvania and the like. RC is in PA but PAs laws are dumb as ****.

Oliver Springs TN. It is a small rural area west of Knoxville and Oakridge TN. The Windrock off road area is in that area. Woolys Offroad park is SW of there. Harlan KY is not to far northeast. And Adventure offroad park and adventure center just opened recently west of Chatanooga in South Pittsburg, TN.

You could pick any little town in the triangle from Nashville, to Chattanooga, and Knoxville and be well placed for rural, yet still close enough to the big cities so you can get there vehicles for builds also. TN is nice in that they have no state tax so more of the money you make will stay in your pocket. The people are good people and the climat e is pretty decent. We do have some snow and winter weather but it isn't bad.

Worth looking into.

Just a idea but we wheeled at Superlift and SMORR over the summer.
Noticed neither place has a shop.
Maybe talk to the park owners and see if you could set up a shop at one of the parks?
Superlift is only open on the weekends but I think SMORR is open all year long.
Another park that does not have a shop is Flat Nasty. Open all year long and is close to Rolla MO.

Move out here to central California. We have more wheeling than you can shake a stick at. Plus there isn't any competition.

Unless you enjoy repairing rust, I'd stay south of the Virginia's.

There's already a shop in Moab that has its roots well planted not to mention Moab is an expensive area to live in.

Okay, so it looks like we're leaning towards the Alexandria/Watertown/Lebanon Tennessee area, just east & slightly south of Nashville.

We have friends with property there, so that may have some influence.

However, we're not limiting ourselves to that, we will consider ANYTHING that meets our needs.

Truck633 - Let me know the name of the shop and when it opens. I got standed at the very top of Imogene Pass. The jeep would not turn over (bad battery and alternator) and jumping did not help at all. The wife was none to happy having to push the jeep over the edge to get the bow pointed down hill so I could pop the clutch to get off the mountain. We had to decide between Telluride or Ouray at that point. We were staying in Ouray, so we went that direction. By the time we made it to the autozone in Montrose (40 miles), the voltage was below 10 volts and the odometer leds were flickering. I had to replace the alternator and battery in the parking lot.

Okay y'all, looking at property in Madisonville Tennessee right now.

It's about 65 miles due south of Windrock OHV park in Oliver Springs.

Yea? Nay? Anybody familiar with this area?

I'm the boss, need the info.
