Western NC is awesome as well. Don't rule out Asheville, although I don't know what the job market is like for welders.

If I was looking, it would be Asheville 1st, Chattanooga 2nd, etc...

We had definitely planned to check out Ashville. Something tells me the cost of living there is probably pretty high though. Seems to be s popular spot.

The southern Appalachians are a wonderful place to live. I've been here (TN side) since 1969. For several years I was employed by a NC company and concluded that it would have cost us 5-10% more to live over there because of the tax structure.

We are heading into TN tomorrow! Looking forward to it. It is still at the top of our list to settle down.

So here we are, back in TN and loving it! Now comes the big question of where to live again. Outside Knoxville or Nashville? We liked both very much, the wife is leaning towards knoxville, but I'm not sure.

Knoxville is closer to the good riding and probably a less expensive place to live. But, there might be more work in Nashville and it's a more "urban" area for entertainment, dining etc. Keep an open mind; you can be happy in either I'm sure. Maybe the job market will determine it for you.

Calling in any favors I have regarding the job market. I have ten years stainless welding and fabrication experience. I am fairly proficient at autocad, certified motorcycle tech, and i was a "working" production supervisor for the last 5 years. What u got? Oh, i can also do light machine tool work.

I skipped a few pages of your thread, but sent you info on our company if you're still interested in Nashville...we're almost always looking for good welders/fabricators in our machine shop.
