    Well, it looks like the move is inevitable - the company took my counter offer and the wheels are turning....quickly turning...

    I will be starting my new job in Atlanta on Aug 8th and flying back and forth getting my house ready to be sold. I have moved many times during my life (around 12), but this one will be the hardest move thus far. The wife and I have made a decision to leave well paying stable jobs and make a move to better our future.
    I have so much to do between now and Aug 8th it is not funny.
    1. get house ready to sell - painted, finish up some inside work, just clean it up
    2. sell my FJ60 and possibly my FJ40 - and i just got a 16ft Zodiac boat that i might sell as well. Get rid of stuff in order to make the move smoother..
    3. get moving quotes - pack
    4. tie up things at my current job - these people are like family so it will be hard to leave.
    5. find a new home
    6. get my wife settled in Atlanta - looks like she wont work for the first year - unless anyone knows people in the school system.

    AND...work..

    The one good thing is, i have a few friends in ATL that will hopefully help me out a bit. Moving sucks....but i got my fingers crossed....

    thanks - the hardest part is leaving two good paying stable jobs....usually when we had moved it was b/c i hated what i was doing or the business went under (dot-com days)

    Don't worry for those that don't know Atlanta is not really in the South, all my friends from Atlanta are nothing like us banjo pickin'-inbred-nascar watchin' country folks.

    Hey patride, but Autstin/San Antonio, do you mean you commute between the two? Or you live somewhere like in San Marcos of even New Braunfels? My good friend just moved down there. She's in Castle Hills.

    Indications on the Atlanta-to-Asheville migration meter remain stable. 78 more Atlantans moved here in the last 6 minutes, the normal pace. You have room for this guy in Atlanta. :rolleyes:

    A little off the Noah Atlanta subject....

    Walt Disney worked in Asheville in the 20's for Cox Engineering drafting subdivision plats. Have a few copies of his plats; French Broad Terrace and Royal Pines are the two I know of.

    If the wife ain't working for a year, guess she'll be growling a lot - just hope it's not during the day :flipoff2:

    Good luck on the move dude. We've moved 10 times in 12 yrs, across the country, in and out of the country etc. I hate moving.

    Good luck man.
