Interesting timing that this thread came up. I'm coming up on retirement next year and looking to relocate from the Bermuda Triangle of Baltimore-Washington-Annapolis. One of the places we are considering is the Chattanooga area. Wife wants to go to UT, I want to live somewhere that doesn't take 30% of my pension in taxes. Plus I've lived too long without mountains around me.
After 20+ years in the fire department, I'm just looking for someplace quiet. Somewhere off the beaten path that also allows the wife unit reasonable access to campus. We are planning a trip after the first of the year to have a look around. Suggestions, guidance, advice, meeting for local beers would be appreciated.
