New here....duh. LOL

Me and the husband unit are planning to relocate to the Knoxville area, from the Tampa Bay area of Florida. Thought I'd start posting here to see if we can make a few friends and get a handle on the scene before we get there. We're eldergoths with a few kids at home, in fact we just got our first grandbaby a bit ago.....NO WE ARE not THAT old we started young, married at 16, been married 22 that is a long time!

Let's see what else, well I home school our youngest. I'm an artist and writer. Hubby is a welder (of 22 years), currently working as a supervisor at a structural steel company but he's done just about everything, trailers, heavy equipment, truck bodies. Any job leads? ;)

Oh well I guess I'll just jump right in.

Hello! We'll look forward to your getting here then. When are you moving?

There are quite a few of us about that have little families. We try to get our children together once in awhile. One of our favorite places to do so closed, but has re-opened/is re-opening. It's cute coffee shop, with a front porch and back patio area. Less than 20 steps away is a park where we can take our littles. :)

It's wise to take a look in the upcoming events section to see what's going on. I'd post about the job thing in the general forum.

See you soon!

We don't have a date yet. As soon as I get things ready job, and housing wise. Probably not till after christmas, it could be sooner though, we just hate it here. It's so flat, hot, and expensive.

We could end up in Gatlinburg...who knows. That's why I say the Knoxville area, hubby has some family in Seiverville. How long you been up there? What what you say the difference is cost of living wise? What about pay? Are you making more, less, or about the same?

And hey did you hang at the Castle when you were here in FL?

Welcome to the forum. I would say be careful about moving to Knoxville because something about it tends to suck people in to where they never leave, but I've lived here all my life and can't really complain. There are some larger cities that are close enough to make a short trip when Knoxville starts feeling too small.

I've lived in South Knox for the last few years and love it. Older, more established neighborhoods, rent/housing prices are reasonable and the traffic doesn't suck. Knoxville is a lovely place to bring the family!

Salutations! I'm sure you'll enjoy it here. When you make it up, be sure to come out to Temple & Sanctus so we can introduce you around.

We have a considerable elder goth population to help you both feel at home , as well as lots of baby bats twittering about. My 2 are 13 & 15... what ages are yours?

We have a girl-10, boy-13, girl-19 and the grandbaby. I'm not sure if the oldest and the grandbaby will be coming or not.....that's a LONG story.

We will most definitely be coming to Temple & Sanctus when we get there, thanks for the offer to introduce us around. I've heard so many horror stories from friends that have moved away - "The scene is so tough...everyone here is snooty...bitchy...clicky....ect." Everyone here seems so nice, makes the move easier. It's hard to pick and go when you've lived somewhere your whole life.

Welcome! ^_^ I live very close to Gatlinburg and I have to say it Can get abit boreing after awhile. BUT I've lived here my whole life so I guess its understandable that I'm board of it ^_^. but just to warn you Gatlinburg is really touristy("If it's tourist season, then why can't we shoot them?"). If you try and travel on the wrong day traffic can be really bad. I know its like that everywhere. but the tourists who come here seem to want to leave their brains at home most of the time, but the upside is that they leave all their money with the locals ^_^ Jobs arn't to bad to find but you really gotta look for the good ones, plus there a good sized arts and crafts community and your husbands welding skills might come in handy? even if not in arts and crafts. There seems to always be new chalets being built up on the mountain so I'm sure it won't be too difficult to find a good job. But I hope your move goes well where ever you decide to move!
