    Oh but a friend of a friend lives there and my friend and her husband would go visit all the time and her and her husband LOVED it there. Me and one of my friends were just talking about how we should take a trip there before the year ends. Maybe you could do that too??

      My freshman year of college I went to a school in Charlotte. The city is nice but I just didn't like the area and transfer to Rowan. It was just too slow paced for me. I dont know if these things matter to you but the beach was too far away and the ski mountains were not that great for me. My roommate was from Matthews and that was a nice town right out side of Charlotte.

          i haven't spent time in charlotte, but i love western NC. i'd really like to be closer to the mountains than we are now.

          i'm from the the really flat part of texas so the mountains here are wonderful to me. people from colorado call them hills. still i like that you can hike to the top & back down in 2-3 hours. i'd probably enver make it to the top of a mountain in colorado & the top is the best part.

          charlotte has a bunch of bank headquarters. i'm not sure if that is effected by the financial institution crisis. I don't believe they are investment banks so they might actually be doing well. i think the bank of america headquarters is there & they are doing very good now.

            Okay, this is completely random as well, but a friend of mine said Charleston SC is awesome... I have never been there... but when we were talking about NC she mentioned checking out Charleston...any opinions?

              i can ask a friend how charleston is for living. i know its a nice place to visit. i've only driven through charleston. we stay in kiawha, SC right below charleston once a year. it's a privately owned island that is a golf resort. we go in dec so it's the off season & cheap. but, the weather is still really nice. the island is beautiful.

              so i know there is really nice stuff in the area, i just don't know a lot about charleston. but, i've gotten the impression its a nice place to live.

              where is tami (foxytv) from? it's somewhere in SC. maybe she can tell you more.

                I am definitely going to have to check it out. The more and more we talk now, esp. with the job situation, we think it is the smart thing to start a life somewhere different, that we both really like.
