    I think you will really like it there. We live about 60 miles from there (Greenville/Spartanburg),and you really are close to the mountains and not that far from Charleston and Savannah that you could make a weekend trip out of it very easily. there's also Asheville,NC not that far away,and as someone has said,Atlanta is down I-85 about 150 miles or so. It's different than up your way and will be a slight cultural shock,but not that many folks are still burned about the "War of Northern Aggresion". It's friendly,which may be a change for you. There's lots to do if you are into outdoors stuff. you will be close...I'll spring for a burger for you when you get here. I'm over that way a couple times a month,when I want my "city" fix; We need it sometimes up here in the mountains!

    Thanks. If I make it down there, I'll be sure to take you up on it.

    Hey, I think the culture shock is part of what I'm looking for.

    Tired tired of NY.

    And mostly, I'm not a club or bar guy. I'm not looking to go down there to be on someone's bowling team.

    Nice home, easy job, time to relax...that would be about the sum of what I'd wanna do.

    Hos,
    You are right on the money about the drive down from Highlands,NC to Franklin,NC, thru the Cullasaja Gorge area. I drive it a couple of times a week, and it never fails to amaze me. Dry Falls has a new parking center,and a hugh portion of Bridal Veil Falls fell on the road a few years back,blocking the drive behind the falls for a few months. The big story,if you didn't know it,was the devestation hurricane Ivan caused a few years back to the Peeks Creek community down below Cullasaja Falls. It rained so hard that part of the mountain collapsed and blocked the Cullasaja river,creating a dam that finally broke loose,sending a wall of water down the river,flooding and burying Peeks Creek in mud. They still haven't found all the people!
    We love this area!

    I lived in a log cabin in Franklin. It was heavenly.

    I had not heard that about the flood. Frightening.

    Do you agree that Highlands is a pretty little town? I loved it there. It was so beautiful when I visited.

    For the most part people are very friendly and helpful in the south with one exception, bumper stickers like this, "Keep The South Beautiful Put A Yankee On A Bus."

    Highlands,and to some extent, Cashiers,NC are very beautiful towns. I do about 90% of my business in those two towns alone,because there's lots of moola there. And to those who talk about A/C,for the first 6 years here,we only needed fans. Of course, I live in the mountains!

    This!

    I was never a big AC user in NY. I had them but only for the hottest days. Now the AC runs all the time. When it starts getting in the 80s outside, we gotta get the AC on.

    When you go out in heat like this it's like getting hit in the face with a wet mop. I can't imagine being without AC down here.

    It's funny. When I moved to NY and it was 85F outside, I told my wife (well, future wife at the time) I have to get an AC unit today. She looked at me like I was crazy. She said, "You're from Texas and you want an AC when it's only 85 degrees? I thought you would be used to the heat."

    I had to correct her thinking since it was very flawed. I told her, "In Texas, it's always 95+ outside so the AC unit runs 24/7. Inside a house in Texas it's always 72F! If it's 85F in your house, it's damn hot!"

    Yeah, I remember there was a quite a bit of wealthy folks there. I always said if I ever moved to the East Coast I was going to live in Highlands.

    In the Bible Belt, religion plays a more prominent role (link) and you'll see more of it in social situations / ceremonies that are treated as more secular elsewhere. You'll have people ask you to which church you go and you may encounter some people who want to help you find your church home. I'm not saying it is good, bad or a big deal, but probably it will differ from what you've encountered before.

    Obviously you love football. College football in the Deep South truly is a great experience. You'll be located close to Clemson (and Furman). You owe it to yourself to give it a try -- Think about picking up some football season tickets. You'd have a great time and it'd help to get you acclimated.
