    Since the project I am working on will not last forever I am looking for an area to relocate to when it is time. I want to be near mountains, away from roads that get salted in the winter and something greener than the West... So far I have been thinking about Knoxville, TN area close to the Great Smoky Mountains. I have been finding some jobs that I am qualified for in that area already that seem to pay well for me.

    So how many places are there to go wheeling, camping, fishing, horse trails, etc? How is the government? Vehicle taxes, registration etc.? Sales tax? State Income tax?

    Only thing I can say is that you are real close to Tellico. Plenty of camping/fishing/hunting. That's all I know.

    Should be a very good place to re-locate. I live about an hour north of knoxville. You are only minutes away from gatlinburg and the smoky's.

    In my opinion TN is the best place on earth. From the lakes to the mountains their is always something to do in TN. And there is lots of places to go muddin etc... Wish you luck if you move there. Im from around the Nashville area, well once I move back there.

    I live right across the border in NC. I know a couple of people that live in TN because it's cheaper to live there than in NC. No vehicle inspections that I'm aware of. If there are any, they must not check a whole lot, because I see a lot of dope rides with TN plates that have their share of duct tape, baling wire, and exhaust stains on the back bumper. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    TN doesn't have state income tax, either, so that's a plus. The sales tax is a little higher to make up for it, though.

    Better rethink the roads not getting salted in the winter. they still use salt but they also use a brine solution on the highways before it snows which is just as bad as the salt. Other than that Tennessee is a great place to live plus if you wait till the weather to change wait till the next day.
