I don't disagree with your recommendations, but I just wanted to point out that Asheville is not a college town. It does have a small branch of UNC there and a community college, but it's hardly a college town like Charlottesville, Bloomington, or Morgantown.

Bloomington, IN may get too cold for someone who doesn't like the cold and snow.

I'd suggest maybe Dallas-Fort Worth. It's close enough to Austin to visit on occasion, and since it's inland from the gulf, it won't be as humid as costal cities.

I've already suggested Dallas or Ft Worth but for a smaller town though there are some alternatives if the OP would take a smaller town/city. I'm basing ALL of my requests on these facts:
1. The OP's line of work and skills
2. The real estate economy
3. The overall economy which GREATLY affects his job

Here are some more alternatives:
Fredricksburg, Tx
Bryan - College Station, TX
Waco, TX
San Angelo, Tx
New Braunfels, TX

Thanks for the suggestions

However I realized right after posting this, (this is going to come off like an odd comment to a lot of people) but one day soon my phone is going to ring and when it does I'll know where I am going and be there in a hurry. Don't need to find it prior. After that expect to hear some major excited words from me (I even plan on building a house/shop on some land after I move, buying a house to live in the mean time though). Almost 15 years ago the words where spoken "what are the chances of that happening?" to my family and I when the crap hit the fan, the day has finally come where they will be spoken again in a good way

This is the weirdest move I've ever had (and I've done this almost a dozen times), but I'm excited.




Thanks for the input again
