The other 2 guys w/ jobs - can you give us any idea on where they will be working so we can narrow down a good area for you?

Also - any parameters on $$ for rent? Got a date set when you will be arriving?

As Ani said, need a bit more info when you can. Location of jobs is critical. Depending on rent rate, there are many areas both north and south of the city.

Good old Cleveland, Ohio....! I was 45 mins. south of Cleveland this past weekend for a funeral in my hometown and got cought in that terrible snow storm. I couldn't beleive that I lived in that there for 20 some years before I moved down here 3 years ago, and haven't looked back since. (I do however miss my sport teams- Browns, Cavs, Buckeyes...)

Any who, it all depends what you and your buddies do for a living and how far you would like to travel for work. I would suggest the Lake Norman area, 20 miles north of Charlotte. Good luck with move.

Go Brownies!!

Well, at least you don't have to worry about your spelling holding you back (just kidding, couldn't resist).
