I need to hear from people down south about the ins and outs of living in North Carolina. Things like prices and things are nice to know, but I wanna know what it's like to live there. I can understand that I can find a rust free car for pennies, that i'll never need to worry about rust again, and that houses are half the price as they are up here in CT. But leaving CT I'll miss out on track events (autocrosses at the least... do you have any cool road courses down there?) What are the roads like (Are they all straight criss cross roads patchworking across the plains?) and what the mountains are like. This offer will take me into Charlotte, and I think I can adjust it to make a reasonable opportunity out of it. But if I had to pick an area I would prefer living in the Smokey mountains. Near there is Winston Salem, and not much else (Which I can dig). I wanna get back into nature things like the continuous hiking / camping / 4 wheeling that I used to do. I can guess that there is no snow, which I'll miss but I can come back to CT at any time for a week or so because I can work in either place. Is there any mountainous or deep country area between Charlotte and Raleigh ? NC People ... Sound off !
