    Meanwhile where the rubber hits the road, the south is overwhelmingly kinder to African Americans in almost all metrics economically.
    If I were you I’d be hoping your company closes up shop very quickly and relocates you to new haven or Detroit. I’ve heard they are lovely for all people.

    I actually read a few of those link from 3-4 years ago and the same flyers were cited as handed out in San Francisco at the same time.

    Ya those fuck faces are almost everywhere now. Still pretty surprised to see them in my yard and others around my block. We're the only white people within 2 blocks in every direction. Half the barrio doesn't even speak english. I still stand by my observation that there are as many or more "loud and proud" racists here as anywhere.

    Bet there's no one in San Francisco trying that bullshit. Statesville is pretty damned close to Charlotte.

    Honestly the way I think about Charlotte is like it's not even there. It doesn't register. I'm sure it says a lot more about me than it does about Charlotte, there's no doubt about that. But, some suburbia megasprawl banking center in the South? Fuck off with that shit. See ya.

    Carry on.

    The airportís inside the city limits so my guess is you might have a connection through there sometime.

    Back in the day when I was the poster child for a 100+ day ski bum, I used to drink a metric shitton of Sierra. Went back even to my old climbing days in Cali. The CEO of SN came to visit my local bar that sold more that anyone in Colorado and the head bartender pointed to me and he came over and said, that guy right there drinks more Sierra then anyone in the world.

    The CEO chatted with me for a half hour, I told him of my brewing and drinking history, and he handed me a card which I still have that says basically, if you ever come to Chico, you can have as much beer as you want.

    I am not a NC resident, but have a place on Beech Mountain, and patrol at one of the ski hills. Don't get excited, as it is sliding down manmade snow most of the time. About 1,000 feet of vertical and trails are about a mile long. We go to Utah to ski. We do have summer downhill biking, but again, distance and vert is the same.

    I have lots of friends on patrol that live in and around Charlotte. Two hold higher positions in fire and EMS with Charlotte. Be glad to hook you up with them to discuss.

    I suspect NC will be the first state in the South to become herb friendly.

    Asheville is a great town. Yuppieville where most pretend to be tree huggers. Tons of good breweries.

    I think I will leave it at, there are MUCH MUCH worse places you could have to live.
    Charlotte has some cool stuff going on, it is just relatively new. There really is no history there, that I can see.

    I worked in Lexington Kentucky for a year and a half. The only black people in the building were janitors

    I donít know what else to say except the system is rigged for white people

    White people just need to own this. The results are obvious. The solution is not

    Thank you.

    Sounds similar to Southwestern PA skiing growing up but maybe a little warmer and few hundred feet more vert.

    Would be nice to have somewhere to take my young daughter to keep her skiing. This is a tough one since Iím 30 min from Alpental now.

    I hope my wifeís company fucks off and this doesnít come to fruition.

    Anyone know about Charlotte NC?

    Part of the reason for my response in this thread was that I knew I lived only about 5 miles from you, and what it would be like for me to move to Charlotte. It would be really hard, (and my daughterís in college, so I wouldnít have to move her). Moving in general sucks, and more so with a kid your daughterís age.

    OP. Listen to NC skier. He's a smart dude and knows what he's talking about. SJG has...issues...

    Warthog touched breifly on it, I'd emphasize, Charlotte is proximate to world class whitewater. Personally freezing my ass off in a creek ain't my idea of fun, but if you are into it, or could be, you'll find everythin you'll ever want in charlotte. once in a blue moon the NC mountains get a big storm and you can find some interesting backcounty, but it's very, very rare. (and sometimes when you do, TNKen the ski patroller runs your ass off of it ;-) ). I'd also add this. It's the deep south. Bible Belt. Way, way more than other parts of the country, religion is a factor in life. If you are hutash/big steve-pissed about it, in a major metro like Charlotte, you can find like-minded people, but you'll be the minority. if you rail on it you'll hurt business. And Social. Better to just keep yer trap shut and nod. that simple.

    PS. Listen to NC skier. did I say that?

    Yep, very similar to skiing in the North East only not as big. All the mountains have race teams and good coaches. If you want to patrol, I can make that happen too. Realize most of the regulars belong to the 60-second club, top to bottom in 60 seconds.

    Our mountains get inundated from folks from Florida, Georgia, Alabama on all the holidays so stay away. Our little hill just installed two new Dopplemayer 4 pack fixed grips, so even with the crowds, not much of a lift line.

    Charlotte is a major airport hub so getting somewhere else is easy. We drive to Charlotte regularly to catch planes.

    If it happens, let me know and I can put you in contact with folks.

    Ken
