Fayetteville probably is hotter than Charlotte. It may not be the hot spot of the state, but it felt like it.

Oh, the disdain for transplants. Most people there are OK with the military presence. There's a bit of resentment towards retirees, family members and vendors who move in and land all of the decent jobs. This is off topic.

When I lived there, I visited Raleigh, Chapel Hill, Hickory, stayed with friend north of Charlotte. I visited every beach that I could. Sadly, I never got to the mountains in the western part of the state. I think that I would have loved that area.

Funny, when I moved to NC, one of the things that I liked about the area was that it reminded me of Southern New Jersey.
Yea the pines in eastern NC and pinelands in south jersey are similar.

I met some very nice people when I lived there, but I didn't like the atmosphere. Despite doing my very best to fit in, a few people still referred to me as "that Yankee".
There are enough AA towns in NC. Like Rocky Mount, granted its a crap hole. But still towns like Winston Salem.

Just wondering if this thread is connected to the one you started on the Charlotte board.

Good catch SB...according to some of OP's other posts they have already lived in Charlotte for 30+ years... I guess it was a successful troll job though

Thanks GoPhils. I recognized the screen-name & didn't say anything for a while until I realized that the thread on the Charlotte board was geared to provoking arguments & then realized that this was supposed to do that as well. Maybe the OP intended to post it on the main NJ board. Now THAT would have provoked fireworks.

Charlotte is Ok, the highway system around Charlotte has improved. But the 77 heading northbound sucks thru Charlotte
