Eric has bought a new home for his family in Wheeling, West Virginia. He discusses the trials of the move with his brother Todd. Turns out that while Todd has changed locations with some frequency in his past…he’s not done much actual “moving” in the traditional sense. As such (and as we’ve come to expect) Todd shares what little wisdom he can, even if it is only a very minor geography lesson.

Todd and Eric both have a history of moving. They have completely different experiences. Besides early childhood moves with the whole Hersey family, Eric has participated in several complete house transitions. Todd’s experience is all about traveling light.
The Big City – Wheeling, West Virginia
For those who are not familiar with the Ohio Valley and Eric’s home region, you probably don’t get the sarcasm of the show title. Wheeling, West Virginia is in fact the big city in the Upper Ohio Valley, but small compared to most metropolises.
Thanks to our friends at Wikipedia, we know that Wheeling has an estimated population of 28,000 people. The Greater Wheeling area, known to the locals as the Ohio Valley, has a total of 147,000. To compare, Columbus has 900,000 people.
