Bibit is a very helpful and informative source!!! I know it is hard to leave . . . it took me quite a while to adjust . . . left a big piece of my heart in Kansas City. However, w/ email and great rates on long distance/cells . . . it really has helped and now I go back at least once a year to visit . . . and friends come see me here.

And I am from this area and have family here! But it can't make up for leaving things you have come to treasure.

I know you will find others, tho, who are probably from your area. If you are around other newcomers, I think that helps, too - as you can all discover things together and will probably find a lot of new friends quickly.

Thanks and we know this is the place to ask them. Right now - we're good, as we have a few of the major hurdles cleared. I own a house here, but that has all been taken care of. Also, we both work from home for companies based in other locations - so no house to sell, no jobs to look for - which seem to be the biggest hurdles facing those thinking of relocating.

what I like about CLT the most is - regulations...the first time we visited it was pure vacation...we looked for a "liquor store" only to find that liquor is controlled by the state...

that sounds great to me. seeing the grades for restaurants, updated elevator lisences (silly I know) all of these things make me feel better.

I like rules - go figure.

DH and I work from home, too! You are right- those are the biggest hurdles for most people - dealing w/ housing and a job - so no worries w/ that.

I think you are going to be pleasantly surprised at how many others have moved to this area and are very willing to meet new people. Plus, so many outdoor activities. We like to take breaks and get out of the house . . . plus - we have found we can take our laptops and work outside at times.

Somewhat related to this . . . one of the things that has always impressed me about NC - is that the Atty. Gen's office is very proactive on the behalf of citizens. I think that is very important. We have a good consumer advocacy program thru/ the AG office. That may be comforting to you, also.
