Have you visited Chattanooga yet? The wife and I moved here 8 years ago from a larger metro area. There is much more to do here than there was in Raleigh, unless your life revolves around college ball games. We almost moved back to VA, but chose Chattanooga instead for it's abundance of outdoor activities and stuff to do on the weekends. For a city of 170k people, this area has a lot going on. Several of the small towns in this area would probably meet your criteria for places to live.

He's so shy and introverted, I doubt he'd be much help.

Haha! He didn't seem to be shy at all the few times spoke to him. I have a feeling you are pulling my leg....

In the north bars are like the churches in the south, there's one on every corner........and they serve the same purpose



people go to them for "help" with their problems"



Make sure to check out Maryville (pronouced MURVUL). there are a couple pubs downtown, and a great shop (Dual Sport Touring, Francois and Megan) if you have more questions for fellow inmates.

Maybe a little. I'm from Blue Hill, BTW.

I admire your fortitude regarding the move; it's a tough thing when you have a family.

Good luck and don't let Hawk sell you any wooden nickels.

We are going to be in the knoxville area tonight if anyone wants to get together. We had the pleasure of meeting Sscratch, Ride2little, and Mike the cowboy last night in Nashville. What a great time!

So we sold the house and we have been on the road over a week living out of our pop up camper having a blast! We have Penn, WV, and VA so far and plan to hit NC, and TN as well. Not sure where we will end up at the end of all this, but we are going to bounce around for a while till we find an area we fall in love with. Here is to only living once and trying to get the most out of it!

If you get down near Richmond and need a place to park the camper, let me know.

Actually you are probably covered for just about any place from here to Nashville to Atlanta, I think
