Hello!

Sorry for the long post, but I have a lot of questions after our scouting trip last fall.

I've been on this forum before, but for the life of me I have no idea what my previous login/pw were, so I'm back with a new name.

Anywhere we consider has to have access to UNCG, where Better Half will be attending for a Masters. We would like to have perhaps .5/ac if possible, although it's not required (esp. after scouting the Friendly area last year--definite possibilities/convenience). Questions are:

1) I've had a hard time finding a GSO zip code map. Any help?

2) Searching other threads here re location via zips, I've gleaned 27403, -06, -07, -09, -10, and 27455--all west and northwest of downtown/college area, correct? I would like to see where they are in relation to UNCG via the map request. Are there any other zip suggestions within GSO proper?

3) Advice about Mcleansville: Is there a bad/good/meh? Commute challenges, public transit to UNCG (how far to pick up the GSO line towards UNCG?), preference for a little space are concerns. We weren't terribly impressed with the new developments we drove through, although we saw some older houses not on the market that had .5/ac or so, and we're curious as to the +/- of that area.

4) We stayed at Groome Inn (zip 27407) last year, loved our hostess and the rural area. How is that area, even though it's close to High Point within that zip? I liked popping over the bridge/overpass, hanging a left, and then I was in Jamestown.

5) Then, GSO zips v. Groome area v. McLeansville v. Jamestown v. K'ville, with the consideration of UNCG. These are all considerations since our curiosity was peaked about possibly having a bit of space around the house when we were in Mcleansville.

Thanks!

PS: we were at a pub downtown last September on our scouting trip, and stared goggle-eyed at a bus flying by, and we gave them the name of "Banzai Buses""--they mean business around there!

I actually work as a cartographer for a map company and our maps do have the zip codes and boundary lines on them incuding the Greensboro-High Point map. If you want to have a good quality map you can take with you, You can go to MAP SUPPLY INCORPORATED to order them or you can pick them up in some gas stations around Guilford County. I know the "Great Stop" gas stations have them. But you cant miss it. Its the folding map and atlas with the Greensboro ballpark on the front cover.

That's funny, GSOboi because I was going to recommend Map Supply- it's the map used by all the realtors in the area!

with me it was on the job training. You really have to be a detail oriented type person for this kind of work. My background is actually graphic design.
