I feel your pain! I'm moving from S. California out to the Fairfax area and I've been lurking on this board for awhile...I wish it moved like the S. CA board does. Makes me sad.
I agree, disappointingly slow Not liking the Chester area, eh? One thing they have that's awesome is a Mexican food restaurant called Jalapenos Maybe you could find some kind of Mommy group that meets somewhere near you? https://mommy-me.meetup.com/cities/us/va/chester/
