My husband and I have been existing in Memphis but now it looks like we'll get to leave sooner than later!

He has worked here since June 2006. We left a wonderful area of Wisconsin when it was necessary for him to change jobs. We've also lived in MI, CA, AL and Germany. This experience in Memphis has been a negative one and I'm looking forward to moving!

We have an opportunity in the eastern part of Tennessee near Morristown/Knoxville area. Where we live in that region would be up to us.

I am hoping beyond hope that this will be better. We'd like a community with friendly people, the potential of actually making friends, fun things to do (we like to be outdoors, enjoy sports, music, playing cards, socializing with friends over drinks/dinner), decent grocery stores/shopping etc. Cleaner and safer would be wonderful too! I haven't been to the eastern part of the state yet but I hear that it is beautiful, I hope so!

Any input about this are would be greatly appreciated. Our kids are out of high school so schools will not be an issue for us.

As these fine folks on the forum chime in, do make sure to perform a "search" of past posts. Previous posts have a wealth of information on them. Welcome to the forum!
