        You're from NC, right. Do you live in the mountains? I was wondering how much snow you guys get in the winter in the mountains. I've got 10 years till retirement and I'm thinking about moving to the mountains of Tenn or NC. We've hiked around Greenville, Tn and Murphy, NC so I'm a little familiar with the area, but I was wondering about winter and how much snow you get. I'd like to live where there is still some snow, but a little milder than Ohio winter.

        I love the outdoors and all the seasons not a Florida guy like my Dad (too hot and no snow). Some wheelin' areas would also be important!

          It's snowing here in Elyria now. Dog I'm like you I'd love to move south around the Carolinas or out west in Colorado. I could use some mountains for a change. I'm retired but have to wait for my wife to before we can go any were. We love the outdoors but there isn't much forest around were I live.

            Well, it seems odd that your talking about going to milder clims. Seems NC is getting snow and OH is experiencing a mild winter. Go figure.

            Me, when I retire, I'm moving North of border where there's wheelin' aplenty 'cause the government hasn't shut them down and wheelers take care of the land they wheel.

            But seein' as how I'll probably never retire, it's moot anyway.

              Dogbone,
              I'm not actually "from" NC, but I've visited here so much (both parents grew up here) that I feel like a resident. I have been living up here for two years now. Living in Hendersonville, we get a lil' bit of snow. But, if you go just north to Asheville and then west on into Haywood County, those are the higher elevations, and they see snow a lil' more often. I do like the climate here. Being from south GA, I enjoy the mild summers here (and lack of humidity). And the winters really aren't too bad, the highs dip down usually around 20 at the lowest, sometimes lower. It's one reason Hendersonville got it's name "The City of Four Seasons".

                I want some snow too! Do you ship some Matt? Here we're still in the low 50s... kinda unusual, normally we have plenty of snow this time of the year...

                  Well, it's almost all melted now. It snowed for all of about 8 hours yesterday, and it wasn't even coming down that hard. Maybe we'll get some more later...

                    You would like it up there dogbone. I live about an hour from the NC mountains and can see them from my house on a clear day. They do get their fair amount of snow and there are more than a few ski areas up there. As for wheeling I would think the best place to be would be near the Boone area. There are 3 trail systems (used to be 5) within 30 minutes of there. It gets cold enough to snow without getting too cold and the summers are nice and mild up there. Not all the heat and humidity we get down where I live.

                      Nice pics, you got me ready to come back now! We haven't even had that much snow up here yet this year, but I'm hoping some snow is coming next week!

                      Nice rock climb
