If you go the "cheap land + decent job = horses" route, you should keep in mind that equine veterinary care is very expensive, so you need to have a plan for dealing with non-routine medical care. I work at the veterinary school in my state,… [more]

I can think of a number of decent places in roughly-equidistant Scenic Fuquay-Varina to get together, including the Aviator taproom with semi-attached restaurant. We could repose afterwards at Stately Rock Steady Manor for board games and cat appreciation. [more]
