    Thats us. Sweet beaches, there is some wheeling in the low country but the closest parks are in NC. Although they're talking about opening a new park up in the center of SC. Great weather. Only thing is tornados and hurricanes suck. I live about an hour from the coast and an hour from NC.

    I'm up in the north western part of the state and love living here. I can be in charlotte in 1 hr, ashville in 1 hr, columbia in 1.5 hrs, charlestown in 2-3 hrs. Great place to live. Their are a good many trails around, some are on private land, but tellico is a couple hrs from me and their are lots of little trails all over. Nothing close thas super hard core, like tellico.

    SC is a great! I've lived in three different parts of the state and havn't found one to dislike yet. As far as wheeling there isn't any public trails right now but you can find a mud run just about everywhere. Other than that its mostly private land and club land, so pretty much everyone here trailers to NC trails. If you are into salt water fishing, fresh water fishing or hunting anything that moves this is your state. I am currently living on Lady's Island in Beaufort,SC (Low Country, No Hills) and all we really have here to ride on is a piece of land that our club leases.


    Steve Kibbe: If I send you some money will you send me a Chille Chesse-A-Plenty and a large sweet tea!:grin:

    We get the tea at our grocery store down here now!

    Another thing about SC is that if SC CK5 members ever wanted to have a meet and greet (hint,hint), no member would have to travel more than 3 hours to get to anywhere in SC. Speaking of southern food, nothins better than some fried chicken or porkchops, smoked picnic ham, mashed taters, butterbeans, collard greens, deviled eggs, homemade mac and cheese, scratch made biscuts, pecan pie, and sweet tea. :xmas:

    I got a tatoo of the state flag about 7 years ago and will never regret it!

    I'm like the sound of this SC meet and greet if you can promise some of that chicken and pecan pie. I'll bring the shrimp and grits!:grin:

    Never been to SC but we love it here in NC and we are for sure planning on retiring here...in 3.5 years :D . Of course that is if I decide to retire with 20 years in.
