I read on here somewhere, where someone had taken this online quiz to find the area that best fits your personality and personal likes and dislikes. It gives you a choice of 24 different areas around the country, but mine included Paris TN and Maryville TN - two areas that I haven't checked into - so, here I go to Realtor.com, Google Maps, etc to research yet again....

Neat quiz, though. Moderator cut: link not allowed .

Yeah several of us on here have taken that quiz and think it's a crock. I took it twice, changed a few answers each time, but I made sure it understood I want to be near mountains, the symphony, art museums, a strong economy, cold weather, and college sports. Both times it told me Clarksdale, Mississippi. I've been to Clarksdale, and it is none of the above. In fact, it's the complete opposite (flat, ugly, poverty stricken, muggy weather, high crime, etc.) The ONLY thing I have to say about that quiz is, at least it didn't cost me anything. But I wish I could have those ten minutes back.

I wouldn't put any faith in that quiz at all.

However, I think Maryville is a nice place.

Paris is great if you like fishing and hiking and camping. It's near Land Between the Lakes (Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley) and also Paris Landing State Park.

And you might occasionally run into Hank Williams, Jr.; he lives there.

Ah well! It was interesting, tho. The description of Maryville on that quiz stated that it's 'progressive' - the complete opposite of what I want. I think a few of us know what other term 'progressive' stands for.....

Maryville is too city for me anyway, and too close to a major city (Knoxville). I need more country and fresh air around me. It sounded nice, tho, with all the amenities available. Nice place to visit, tho, with everything it offered. I do like the occasional ballet, symphony and 'light opera'. Which begs for yet another thread.

In my searching around for a topographic map of TN, I found this extremely informative website:

Gives you topographic info, as well as rivers, river levels, earthquake activity in TN (another reason to stay away from the western end). There was a 2.2 earthquake in Knoxville this past January. A nice earthquake 'safe-zone' looks like 50 + miles northeast of Nashville - an area I was interested in anyway.

I love Googling!

Unfortunately, it's not compatible with my Mac. I've tried it before, and it is pretty neat. Just put in your address, and come up with a satellite view of your yard.

We just got back from TN on Saturday. Maryville was absolutely beautiful! We visited Chattanooga, which was a lot of fun and to Nashville for the day. Nashville reminded me a lot of Baltimore County, MD. We stayed a few days in Cookeville and that was a nice town. We visited Sparta in White County and I loved that area!

There was an earthquake in Knoxville this past January? Well, I am paranoid and hysterical most of the time, as others on here can tell you, and I am here to say that I felt NOTHING. If I'm not worried, I don't think you should be.

It was only a 2.2, so doubtful anyone felt it as nothing more than a passing moment of possible vertigo.

Thanks, Hiknapster - I'm trying to narrow down the area to look in, when we come down, and don't think that Knoxville area would be for us, anyway, as I'm not a city person. There was a 4.5 earthquake hit in this area about 10 years ago, I felt that, but just a jolt. I think that no matter where someone decides to live, you can't avoid all dangers, you just have to balance things out. Hurricanes vs tornadoes, but stay out of tornado alley, earthquakes, locusts, geckos, and bugs. I do hope that you get out of that mobile home, tho.

God watches over us, and I trust in Him.

I'm centering more on the general Cookeville area, radius of about 50 miles.

blessings, Shen
