My company has asked me to relocate to Duluth. It just might work out, and I'm doing research into housing, cost of living, schools, all that good stuff. So...where's a good place to live around the Duluth area with wheelin' not too far away? /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

By W.V. do you mean West Virginia? I'll be headed to Duluth, but not WV anytime soon.

Thanks for the info. We'll be looking in areas where the cost of living is reasonable and the schools are ok. My daughter will be going into the 7th grade and my son will be going into the 5th grade.

I'm so sorry.

IMO, the North side of ATL offers the best options for housing and schools, but that depends a lot on how far you want to commute. Some of the western and eastern most suburbs are also decent. I almost relocated to ATL about a year ago and looked around over there pretty extensively. Housing costs are high, but that's because there is a big demand. I found most of the new construction is for huge houses. You have to look a little harder for mid-range housing. However, coming from the west coast though you may be accustom to the home prices.


Oh yeah, get a commuter car and some patience, lots of patience, you're gonna need both.

Sorry to correct but Duluth is in Gwinnett County. Good to great schools because the area has grown like crazy in the last 15 years. Lots of money lives in that area.

Some good trails in North Georgia and great places to camp. Also, Tellico is only three or four hours away /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

Not mine either! I live in ritzy, snooty Buckhead (I'm poor though) and I love passing Bentleys and new Range Rovers with mud all over the Tahoe from a previous adventure. Guys frown, chicks grin. I must be onto something with this whole 4x4 thing /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

Can you listen over the net? I just listen to WGST because I want to listen to talk radio while sitting at my desk here in WA state /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif They even take all the commercials out of the online stream /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

YEP! http://wsbradio.com/ Just click on the "Listen Live" tag. IIRC, all stations that offer live streaming are now required to do that.
They also have Neil Boortz in the AM & Royal Marshel at night (9-11)

I live in north georgia, probally about 1 1/2 hours from duluth.I consider anything from gainesville south THE BIG CITY & I refuse to go down there at all unless I'm passing through! It's too damn crowded.I personally can't say for sure since I won't (ever) live down there,but as far as places to wheel ???? you may find someplace where a new subdivision is going in....It would be fun until the high dollar houses were built.I geuss i'm just used to the mountains. GOOD LUCK

Well, I'll put it as the VP did to me..."we are realigning the assets of the company to the needs of the business"..which means, nope not gonna happen, and BTW if you want a job, you'll go where we tell you... /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

Sweet! I'm not in a ritzy neighborhood, but the folks around me all drive nice new cars and trucks and look at me funny when I fire up the /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif They really get a nasty look when they see me driving through the neighborhood all muddy and stuff /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif It's even funnier when they watch me clean all the mud off on the side of my driveway /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

I have ben to Atlanta/Duluth many times. Pretty much anything is crappy traffic. The only way is if you where you can travel in opposite directions, meaning headed out of Atlanta in the morning, and back in at night. Either way, traffic is gonna suck! /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
