Re: Moving to Huntsville AL

Alabama will put you in the Southeast Chapter, or SEC. One floor above SoCal.

Best of luck with the move and the new job.

That is a good bit of a distance to move.

Re: Moving to Huntsville AL

Thanks, the cost of living is quite a bit lower there, and with any luck I will retire in about 5 years.
Huntsville is 10 miles south of Tennesee and it looks inviting. Anyway I will find out soon. Happy wheeling !

Re: Moving to Huntsville AL

Exactly. Unless you make $100k or more CA is completely useless. And I do not make that.

Re: Moving to Huntsville AL

The heat is rough, weather a bit unpredictable but there are so many things that are better that it makes up for the downside. Cheaper fuel, lower cost of living, green summers, and no emissions are big perks.

Stuff does rust out here but if you've been in Florida you know that. Huntsville will be better than Florida in that respect.

Wheeling will be almost all private parks as there is virtually no public land like you have out west.

Welcome to the south....Yeeeee Haaaawww!!

Re: Moving to Huntsville AL

You are about 30 miles from Hale Mountain, 60 miles from Wooly's, 80 miles from Adventure Off-Road, 200 miles from Windrock, 210 miles from Land Between the Lakes, and 315 miles from the Cherokee Crawl in Harlan KY.

Not sure when you arrive, but there are a few of us going to LBL on Saturday. Come on!

Welcome to the SEC.

Re: Moving to Huntsville AL

I spent only a month out there in the National Guard. It was transitioning from winter to spring. Some of the most beautiful countryside I've ever seen.
