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?
