Actually just stirring the pot. So little going on, except riots, I wanted to give people something to get stirred up about. The Board has been so dull with no sports going on. East Tn is great actually. LOL
Hey no worries, I was actually gonna say that on a clear calm Friday or Saturday night it's very possible you could hear banjo's echoing thru the hollers.

If OR is that much better, Dallas must be dreadful. Most disgusting people in this area reside in Oak Ridge.
Also officially my address is Clinton, my backyard borders the town of Oak Ridge. So on my two acres and 3000 square foot house that cost less than the two bedroom 1800 sq ft house with a tiny lot in Dallas, I live pretty damn fine.

Yep. Austin is even worse. One of the main reasons we are moving to TN.

I am born and raised in TX, never lived anywhere else, and never thought I would want to live anywhere else. Until I realized how screwed property taxes are here. We pretty much got priced out of our old home due to property taxes. Half my mortage each month was taxes.

Between housing affordability, the brutal heat down here, and how much more beautiful TN is... we made the decision that we are finally leaving Texas.

Hell, Texans and Tennesseans are just about blood kin.... Shout when you get moved.... I just might have a welcome gift for you, if you'd like some high-quality, non-taxed TN sipping whiskey.

Be Safe,

The beautiful part is from Nashville and East. The more east the more beautifu, mountains. The elevation tends to go up the more east which means cooler temperatures.
You have to be very careful about schools. Both the system and individual schools within a system. You might search best schools in TN .
We've lived in these cities as adults.
From most liked to least:
Johnson City: good schools, cool weather, laid back, etsu. Kingsport is possibly even better. Both are decent size towns.
Chattanooga: A good small city. Which school is important.
Nashville: Excellent entertainment, not just country music.Better for young people these days.
Adjoining counties Williamson and Wilson are nice. Also Sumner county. Search schools.
Knoxville: We're Vol fans, nice people, just not what we hoped for. Proves you can't go home.
Cleveland: It's last, although we knew some nice people there. 30 miles from Chattanooga.

So, as it turns out, you don't live in Oak Ridge and don't need to feign offense.
