I guess there must be something to Charlotte judging by conversations with people who have moved down there. I'm sure the grass is always greener attitude should be realistic...but from what I hear it does sound like a considerably cheaper quality of life down there compared to nassau county. I'm just tired of the rat race and paycheck to paycheck living. I feel like if I sell my house up here and move there with a 60k job I should be in good shape with no mortgage to worry about. We'd plan to hook up with a church so I'm hoping some solid relationships could be built as we would be away from most family/friends up here.

Again ... any input is helpful. Thanks for your time!
All this other "stuff" aside (lol grenades), if you log the research time and look at it from all angles you'll be in the best place to make a long term decision. There's a wealth of threads on the general topic you can search right here - search the LI forum for some other input. Get both sides. I will tell you I've met more Nassau folks down here then people from Suffolk. That surprised me.

Church will not be an issue as you will have many choices and even can find RC.

And rent for a year if you do move...make sure you like it first. Also, this will give you time to figure out where you want to reside..
