    Yeah...and an NFL team, an NBA team, and plumbing.

    Dumb resides everywhere, but you just know she thought she was much much smarter than myself...and probably has all the right answers.

    Btw TNKen, have you got yourself a fly pole yet? Iíll buy you a 12pack for a float down one of the tail waters.

Better to just keep yer trap shut and nod. that simple.

    PS. Listen to NC skier. did I say that?
    Bold above is pretty much spot on with what I was getting at. Those fundamentalist bible thumpers and rebel flag waving ignoramuses are more often than not the same person. Just ask one about their thoughts on police brutality and National Anthem kneeling..

    Don't leave this up to her company. Take control. Have you seen the unemployment rate recently?

    Sheís applying for new jobs already but unfortunately sheís kind of niche. But for sure that is the goal.

    Fix that shit, man. Or maybe live with less. Less is more, or so they say.

    Younger brother just moved there a year ago for work from the Northeast it. He likes it so far, but he's more of the make money, eat good food, brewery, and golf scene. Cost of living seems good and yeah summer's are hot/humid but the rest of the year is so mild compared to upstate NY. My guess is he'll stay and work there for 3-5yrs then probably move on.

    I haven't been to Charlotte yet although you're not too far from Asheville (cool mtn town with breweries and tons of good mountain biking). Also, Charlotte is a hub for American so I'd skip the local ski options and take advantage of cheaper, direct flights out west.

    And has never set foot in the city...I get it though. I hate Utah, cause itís full of cultish polygamists.

    Btw, AK, I might have missed it, got distracted by the fake news, but what type of work does your wife do?
    Also, like I said, Iíve lived here for 13yrs. I live in the city, not the burbs. Iím in a neighborhood called Elizabeth literally on the border of another neighborhood called Plaza Midwood which is probably the most progressive neighborhood in the city, along with NODA.

    Iíd be glad to answer any questions you have as best I can. Just PM me.

    Cool. Thanks man. Someone nailed it earlier when they said the demographic was Bankers.

    Her bank may be consolidating the remote workers to core locations.

    take the relo package or get fired situation.

    I appreciate the info.

    Iceman definitely won’t be there for your house warming party, so factor that into your choice as well.

    Well if youíre one of those rich young banker types, you need to find an $800,000 tear down in Myers Park, blow it up and build your dream home.

    I'd follow the money if I were you. As much as I bash the redneck element around here, the cost of living is low compared to places north and east, and compared to the west metroplexes too. You get 85% of the amenities of a Boston or Long Island for half the price. You'll not be able to avoid the assholes at work or around town, higher number of them than places northeast or northwest for sure. But, it's really not a horrible place other than that.

    Depends on how you live to a degree but Charlotte vs Boston proper is not even close.

    More assholes in Charlotte than in the Northeast? Do you realize how many people in Charlotte are from the northeast? And Iím not sure how you could even say that...
    How much time have you spent in Charlotte? You do realize that the triangle is different than Charlotte donít you?
    Raleigh must be a real shitty place to live.

    Point noted, should have said "racist assholes" or "bible thumping assholes". The transplants from the north, and the chill folks from around Ashville are a lot smarter and better educated than the folks who truly grew up around Charlotte 30 years ago.

    FWIW, Raleigh and Durham are pretty night and day with regard to diversity.. Although there's been quite a bit of gentrification in Durham over the past 10 years.
