Coming from Memphis TN, with prior stops in Mobile Al, Tallahassee Fl, and Houston TX. Gotta say that Memphis has the others beat as far as having the most awful heat and humidity I've ever experienced! I just couldn't take it any more and asked my company to transfer me into this beautiful little corner of the world. They agreed, Yayyyy!!!

I don't know yet where in the Tri- cities I will land, I'm still waiting on that phone call from my company (hurry up already LOL). I'm hoping for Elizabethton or Bristol, but I will be perfectly happy to be anywhere up that way in NE TN, and away from Memphis, no matter where I wind up.

Memphis is worse than Houston as far as the heat and humidity?! Now that is saying something! Yikes!!

I hope you can get to NE TN soon! I wish I could, but it will be a couple of more years yet.

Blessings

Hey DubbleT, I grew up in Tallahassee. The heat and humidity in Tally was bad enough - don't think I'd want to live in Memphis if it's worse!!!

Yeah, I was a little surprised to find that living right along the Gulf Coast area is actually more tolerable than living in Memphis. Whodathunkit?

Dcommander, I really loved living in Tallahassee. I have wonderful memories of weekends spent on the beach in
Apalachicola, and swimming in some of the beautiful springs with their crystal clear cold waters, and the fresh shrimp , mmmm!
(Houston was fun too, with all the nightclubs and malls and tons of other fun things to do. But then I was a young thang back then too.)
Really I'm just an outdoorsy kind of girl at heart, love the woods and streams and waterfalls and lakes. I really can't wait to move. I plan on taking lots of long walks, and riding my bike, and just generally taking advantage of the cool fall weather as soon as I get there. If I time it right I can be there in time to watch the leaves turn color too. Yahoooo!

I am a little nervous, but so excited about this move.

I came here in 1996 from New Canaan, CT. I was 26 and met my husband on the internet and he lived here. My parents still live in the same house in New Canaan so I get to go there often, THANK GOD! I'm a city girl and guess I always will be. I've just never really liked it here. I feel in the middle of nowhere.

I moved to Nashville, Tennessee from Tampa, Florida in 2000.

I currently live in Hendersonville, TN.

Love it here.

Default comin' in from Joysee (Jersey)

Just checkin in with y'all. Lived a few places - 15 years in Virginia (near Richmond), 7 years in California, and the rest in New Jersey (where I grew up). Single mom now, and daughter's at UT, so I'm comin' down!! Yeee Haw! I went to college in Bristol, back that was way back in 1967-69, so I'm sure it's all changed a LOT. Been reading the "off-the-grid" thread here and those views in Johnson Country are heavenly. Nothing can stop me now (even if I have to work at Walmart and McDonald's to pay my daughter's tuition)! LOL Thanks for all the great info. :-)
