Out of curiosity how many ppl here have done or will do a reverse migration. In other words moving up north from the south?

I did it, sort of. AR to MD. Not exactly the "North" per se but fairly close. Stayed for 7 years until right before the real estate market began to tank. Cashed out, took some great work experience and came back home. I was a reverse carpet bagger!

If I knew someplace up north comparable to Arkansas I would consider moving. I like it here until spring rears its ugly head and then I'm pretty much trapped indoors hiding from the allergens with the AC blasting for 4 or 5 months.

where in MD did you live? Depending on where you are, you can be in the true north!

Carroll was really nice! For the most part people were really friendly and outgoing. The friendliness is a bit different than here though. The landscape reminded me a lot of AR. My oldest son learned to play hockey at Skate Frederick! Frederick's a great town, loved it over there.

I hear ya on the allergies. My allergies are bad when the air is crisp/thin. I actually breathe better in high humidity which is one of the reasons I will be heading back down south.
