Grew up in NY, lived in Burlington, Vermont for the past six years. I was an art student and a communications student back in my college days...i work in the Human Services field and try to moonlight w/ a writer/painter type endeavors. my partner got an offer she cannot refuse physician/scientist track, research lab, faculty position at the medical college + pulmonary fellowship. we are largely debt free because she did her md/phd on a full ride. i might even go back to school for FREE or close to it!!!!
i think we will initially rent outside of Atlanta, i've heard you can rent a full house + garage for some crazy amount 800-1200per month...about what we pay for our 2 bedroom here in VT!!!!
i've heard land is available, e.g. friend got a nice home on 30acres for 145K!!!!
i've heard taxes are low, cost of living is low, southern hospitality is a REAL thing, racism is very noted though, it's jesus and republican land, so i'll try to steer clear on drinking the kool-aid. i'm hoping a metropolitan area as large as Atlanta affords us an anchor to avoid the good ol' boy bullshit.
i drive a big F-150, tatts and big ol' beard so i might blend in.
heard the heat is silly, and the roads close if it snows an inch.
THOUGHTS, COOL PLACES, ANY INSIGHT WOULD BE GREAT!!! OVERALL I"M PRETTY STOKED TO BE MOVING SOUTH, not a fan of brown recluse spiders though..like my flesh as is.
hey isn't Robin from Georgia???????
