You're right, I don't want THAT much snow. (But it is beautiful...)

I think Spring is in the air also JMT.

Of course Shuler is pro labor. He made a fortune in the NFL but didn't produce anything that anyone wanted. Sounds just like the UAW...

I was glad to see him leave Tennessee and move back to NC, even if he did it just to run for Congress.

Is he behind "Heath Shuler Real Estate"? I would assume so. He was truly awful on the Washington Redskins. One of the greatest busts in recent NFL history.

GUARANTEE you can adjust! That percentage is a huge area.In the cities the #'s are better.Especially in college towns like Johnson City.You'll love it & won't have any problem!
If you want to be in TN with more diversity,generally the further west,the more diversity(excluding the Cumberland Plateau,with the exception of Cookeville!).

Welcome MOVIN-n-012!

Default highliner

I've been trying to relocate to the Chattanooga area- yes, I know its humid and hot, and I love it so- and would like to know if there are any areas to avoid, insofar as rental properties go. My professional background is mainly law enforcement and transportation, so I'd want to stay out of places where that would make me unwelcome. Any help would be greatly appreciated. P.S. I want to rent somewhere within 15 miles of Silverdale Prison CCA, if that helps.

So tell me, who is coming to East Tennessee because -

You want to hunt and/or fish more often?

You want to be a part of a church community lifestyle? (meaning your religious institution is more than a building where you attend services once in awhile - it is also an avenue to socialize and do good deeds in the community)?

You want to celebrate traditional religious holidays like Christmas, for example, or patriotic holidays like Memorial Day or 4th of July beyond having a day off from work or going to sales at the stores? (parades, events)?

You want to hear more country, bluegrass, gospel or blues music than you hear now? You want to learn some southern dances?

The idea of eating traditional southern dishes or something you've caught or shot appeals to you?

You want to spend more time with your ATV, racing or truck? Or, you are looking to buy one/participate in related activies/events?

You want to belong to some group after you get to Tennessee that has to do with nature and/or nature related sports (hiking, rafting, birding, etc.)?

You think a person's property is his to do with as he pleases?

You like to swim in lakes and/or swimming holes?

You like the school rules, the school curriculum, the school activities more than the place you left?

You want to marry a southern man or a southern woman raised in Tennessee or have friends who are Tennessee natives?

You want the town you are looking at, to stay exactly like it is now and not looking at the town for what it could be once more transplants arrive?
You may have just convinced me that my upcoming move to TN is the right decision. I am a 33yo accountant (almost a CPA), originally from IN, who has lived in CO for the past several years. Although I have loved my time in CO, you have accurately listed some of the big reasons I would like to leave.
