Thanks for that....

As you come though Bristol, do not forget to honk your horn or wave at the traffic cameras.... Be careful through there.... its really hustle and bustle now. The area has exploded over the past 10 years. Its like a mini-city in itself.

It is about time for us to trek up to an apple orchard up between Abingdon and Marion, VA for our couple of bushels of apples. Yippeee!

Smile Re: East TN Move

I realize that it's been some time since you first posted this thread... but I just wanted to let you know that I've found that it takes a good TWO years to completely acclimate yourself to a new area after a move, i.e, finding your way around, what's available and not, housing, doctors, dentists, schools, shopping, dining, etc.

I've made numerous moves all over the U.S. and this seems to be the timeline any/everywhere to become completely comfortable in a new surrounding and begin to really feel that it is "home" and to feel a real part of the community.

So, ease up on yourself... you'll be homesick... you'll miss all that you were used to before... regardless if it was better or worse... and, then one day you'll go somewhere else on a trip, etc., and think to yourself, "Wow, I can't wait to get back home!"... and meaning home... right where you are now!

Take care and good luck to you and yours!

How about an Aldis store...CHEAP and DECENT QUALITY. It's the best deal for the most nutrition that I've ever found. Anyone know if they plan to build in the tri-cities area? I probably save at least 1/3 buying at Aldis rather than a chain grocery store I've ever shopped. Great for veggies, meats, nuts, dairy, the basics.

You can go to Aldi's web site and see for yourself. According to the web site, there are 16 Aldi locations in the Nashville area.

i totally understand what you are talking about i moved here from st louis mo and things are so much cheaper there! grocerys here are outrageous! the price of housing is high too. i live in campbell county and when i first moved down here i had a decent job, then i got pregnant and became a stay at home mom while hubby works. sad thing is the economy is falling so bad in this county that when i was ready to return to work i couldnt find a job anywhere to save my life. the only jobs i have found were in knoxville , about 45 minutes away, and dont even pay me enough to commute. when i first moved here i loved it here, it was beautiful, i was making good money ect. now i would love to get the hell out of here!

Thumbs up i've been and still am researching before i jump...

i have been trying to move to tn for a long time i am from flint, michigan. My father was a boozer and my mother ran off so i have my family that my husband and I have created and we look forward to the slower pace and the growing our own food and veggies. Kids now a days have it all we use to have to wait a week or two for letters they get them in less than a second on computers and phones. Anyway, every area I look at I look for a walmart or other stores. I really want to just pack and go but it is not just me. I hope all comes around for you and your family. Plus, now milk is over $4 and I bought a fixer upper on 2 acres for 100,000. Just got to keep searching for that diamond in the ruff.

At any rate, since you know about Meijer's web site, why didn't you look at it before you moved here and see that there are no Meijer stores anywhere near Gatlinburg?

I'm really not trying to offend, so I apologize if it comes across that way. But your complaining about the cost of housing, no Meijer stores, etc., AFTER moving here is the equivalent of someone who adopts a cheetah as a pet but then complains that it runs too fast.
