I wrote a week or so ago about "social services" in AL and got a good bit of information. Thanks to all who responded.

Now that I'm over the fear of finding help with my special needs daughter and, I am moving forward for my plans to move to New Market, can anybody tell me what it is like to live there?

Like, how close is WalMart? and are there any parks? Does anybody know any good vetinarians? I have a beautiful doberman that has his own medical issues... he's a Von Willabrands dobie. (bleeder) I must find a good Vet. for him.

I will be looking for some kind of Soldering job with a manufacturing co. I'm enrolled at STI Electronics to get my J-STD-001 Soldering Cert. I like what Wildwood Electronics looks like but don't know what the drive would be like to get there.

Married for 17 yrs. and now going through divorce, moving to a "new" town, getting a new job, and a new life... "ouch" I'm a military spouse... soon to be X-spouse from military husband retired with USN.

I'm building a home in New Market, so the home will be beautiful! It's getting use to all the other stuff that will be a challenge.

any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

New Market is like 10 miles from the North Parkway Wal-Mart, almost all of it two lane road. The Wal-Mart in Fayetteville TN is a little bit further away.

However, there is a new Publix about 5 or 6 miles away.

As I said before, New Market is waaay out in the country. The area is somewhat hilly with large row-crop fields. There are some new subdivisions with more coming. Traffic can be a hassle because the roads have not kept up with the growth.

The 'downtown' (like 5 buildings) is on the National Register of Historic Places. IIRC some of them are abandoned. There are also a couple of beautiful historic homes. I think there's a gas station. IIRC there is a park at the mill dam. I don't recall if the town has a traffic light... I think it has a flashing light...

There are some County parks nearby: Madison County Lake (fishing and walking) and Sharon Johnston Park (picnics, festivals, shooting range).

Thanks Reactionary... Good info, looking forward to checking out the parks. Not a problem for me that the town is small, I'm moving from a small town in MD (Sharpsburg) lots of history here! The Antietem National Battle Field is walking distance to my home here. I'll miss it and I have enjoyed living here though, time to move on

I like living out in the country, it's a friendlier place to ride the Suzuki. I'm new to riding and will keep it on low traffic roads. It's a Boulevard, 800 cc's. good size bike.

Hopefully I will find a motorcycle club to join and have others to ride with.

I know there are several motorcycle clubs around N. AL. They take organized day trips all over the state of AL, GA and TN.

Cool, I'm towing it down behind my 4Runner the day the movers leave with all my household goods. I'm closing on my new home on 20 Nov. and will be traveling down with the bike on the 26th! Going from door to door "hopefully"! I will also have my doberman with me and a cat, my daughter and two beta's... ??? daughter wants to carry her fish. who hasn't had to make a state to state move without carrying fish at some time in their life? It should be fun The first thing to go into the new garage is going to be the bike!!!
