Only if you venture out side Raleigh / Cary / Chapel Hill proper will you increase your chance of seeing the Battle Flag and rifle racks in trucks. They are staples places like Franklin, Nash, Warren, and Wilson Counties as well as counties between Raleigh and Charlotte.

Don't be un-nerved, as they are just doing what they do. Remember, outside the "big" cities it is hunting territory here.

When I moved to Texas from PA, one of my friends asked me if anyone rode a horse to work.

I drive on 751 and Fayetteville Rd, around I-40 intersections, every day. If it's not the people waiting 5-7 seconds to move AFTER the light has turned green, it's the people driving slowly (making me hit the next light as RED). Then, they proceed to drive 10 MPH slower than the speed limit, backing up traffic, especially in the early afternoons.

I don't know, maybe I live by a bunch of old people, but that's what I face almost every day.

As for the highway (I-40 and I-80), I agree, people do drive 80 MPH, which I'm glad because I usually drive about 75, so these people divert the cop's attention away from me, LOL.

This is not the state of slow drivers. Even the gracefully aged drive faster than I do. I stay within the speed limit. Sometimes I drive 5 miles more.

In NY, I lived in an area where there were hunters and gun racks. It's no big deal.

It's not the gun racks in the South that are unnerving. It's the flags!

The only time I remember seeing them is at a Walmart we happened to stop at in South Carolina. It seemed the majority of vehicles in the parking lot proudly displayed the flags.

Thanks for the input everyone. I'll probably send my resume to a few employment agencies and see what they think. If I get a positive reaction and see a decent number of job postings for the area, I'll pass through once more to check out the area. If I do so, are there any areas you think shouldn't be missed?

And I agree, lovebrentwood, it's the flags more so than the gun racks that are unnerving.
