More bittersweet news...not moving to Maryland. Turn of events last week that barricaded our move. Everything is alright, it's just taking some adjustment to the news. It turns out it's a blessing in disguise, and we're very happy that we get to stay here. The wifey ends up with a Maryland salary in NC (staying with same company she would be working for up there), and I may get to go back to school for MBA. So things are bright in our future, just not what we were expecting. So, glad we're staying South!!

BTW, IS THIS THREAD 10,000?!?!??!!!?!!????!!!! And what do I win????

Thanks, LM! Sorry to steal the 10,000 thunder from a newbie, but I just couldn't resist!

Does it matter that we're in Destin, Florida right now enjoying the Emerald Coast?? (On our lunch break of course).......

You are 50 miles from me in Panama City. Destin is beautiful and the beaches in the panhandle are phonominal. I will miss the white sand beaches and clear water when I move to Cornelius. But not that much!

Yeah, it's gorgeous down here! My wife grew up coming to this area, and this is my first time. Makes you never want to go back to the Myrtle Beach area again!

Vin, since you're moving from PC, I think you've made an awesome choice by moving to LKN. I'd say LKN is the closest thing you can get to regarding similar lifestyles. When are you making you're move? I think I've read in the past that you've been moving piecemeal? Good luck with everything!
