Hi Kevin,

You are going to love Chattanooga!. My parents live just over the GA line. Life moves at a much slower pace. You'll learn the language fast (they speak Southern ;) ) and then you will love it there. Good choice!

My buddy & I were on the phone talking about the differences between MA & the rest of the USA. It's just amazing how different everything is once you leave the northeast. People are friendly, pace is slower, more churches & American made vehicles. Just a 180° difference.

He was telling me about the year he lived in FL. He walked into this breakfast place for the first time, & was blown away by how everyone greeted he & his wife like they'd been coming there for years. I recall the same in truck stops going cross-country. Up here everyone is pissed off & in an all-fire hurry to go nowhere. I remember going to TN as a kid. We were all laughing when a car stopped and let us cross the street in downtown Nashville. My father couldn't believe it. Can you believe they actually stop & let us cross the road??? The guy even gave us a wave too! We still talk about that day even now. Up here you either get clipped by the mirror, or given the finger - usually both.

Yes, those are very true things about other areas in this country. I was in Kentucky bowhunting for a week a few weeks ago. We found a little hole in the wall for breakfast, opened up early, real sassy waitress and a bunch of vets, retirees, and local up early workers. All giving each other and the waitress a hard time. It was just like my spot here, just had a drawl to the vocabulary. Everywhere I travel around that region it is noticeable how polite people are in general.
Lets see LIsa, Ringgold??Graysville? Flintstone? I have looked all through that region for a house, but I think we will stay across in Tenn. No state taxes, 26 bucks to register our vehicles, Low property taxes, reciprocity for our CC permits, ethanol free gas :shock: ,and more.

That's the way I'd go too for the same reasons. It's a beautiful area. I know you'll be happy there. Take care, Lisa
