Thanks to all of you who replied to my original posts and questions regarding Troy and Montg. Comm. Coll.
The area is quite "different" from Orlando.We like the Albermarle area.But it is a 45 min drive we discovered. What about Norwood or Asheboro? How far a drive? (from Troy)
We will be in the area for about a year before hubby starts classes, as there is a waiting list and something to do with state resident status. Hubby is an A/C (cars, RV's heavy equip.) guy right now.He was a welder/fabricator for 21 yrs, and has ran his own small machine shop.Sooooo what might be an area needing services such as his? He has made parts(and built) for rollercoasters,he has also made simple parts for dairy carousels. He can make or fix almost anything.( Don't you just hate people that master everything they touch?)

This is NOT a request for a job.He has owned his own co. for too many yrs. I don't think he could ever work for anyone else again.I was just wondering where he might be more successful? What areas might benefit from his skills and knowledge?

Thanks in advance.

Asheboro is about 20 - 30 mins. from Troy on 220 north. Norwood is about 10 , west on 24/27 , to 73 , then 731 in Mt. Gilead to Norwood. Regarding necessity , he should encounter a decent customer base out there.
Good luck and keep us posted!!
