Hey there Greg,  I’m currently in Cumberland MD.  Good Luck. Just so you know the Oldtown area is in Allegany County.   There is also Garrett county.  That is west of us and it would be a nice place to go off-grid as well.   Another area you could check into, but it is in Allegany Co as well would be Flintstone, that is over the mountain from Oldtown.  I would pick Flintstone over Oldtown.  Well with all that being said my family and I want out of this town.  It’s just too close to D.C. for us.   We are looking to get out of this country.  Good luck with getting to Western MD.  It is beautiful here.
