Sounds like my kinda place though i will avoid Austin like the plague. I wanna move out to Brewster county near Big Bend. That's more my style.

I've watched this state change dramatically over the last 20-30 years. STOP destroying it. Please. Stay where you are.

Glad I got that of my chest.
The same can be said for just about any rural area in the red states (at least). The wealthy are getting their bolt holes ready just in case it all goes down the toilet. In the meantime they party in the big cities in the blue states.

Yep, that's the place for me, as well. You gotta like solitude, because that's what you're gonna get - as well as gorgeous vistas. I never cared for the woods of East Texas (my current location). I like to see the sun rise and set on the horizon.

purpilhullpeas, Don't forget about the fire ants in TX. They are worse than running into a person that is carrying. Been there.

For those of you wondering what all the Texans were doing posting here. Many of us Tennesseans think of Texas as extreme SW TN and many Texans think of TN as extreme NE Texas. Some of those think they put Arkansas in to keep us separated.

To everyone not here, don't come! We have earthquakes and tornadoes. Hurricanes come here to die, dropping all their rain here. We have droughts and floods, often one following the other. We have the second lowest education budget (thank you Mississippi for being first) of all the states. We now have coyotes, armadillos (possum on the half shell), and fire ants. And the weather! Other places have climate, TN has weather! Most of the state doesn't get a lot of snow, but we get ice. It's a lot easier to drive in a foot of snow rather than on a quarter inch thick laver of ice. And to top it off you may have to live next to people like me.

All that crap stops at the Monroe and Polk county borders here in Tennessee. Why? Because the mountain boys think yankees taste like chicken! If it ain't got a southern drawl, shoot it! They have been doing that since 1861 Iffin your great grand daddy wasn't born here, you just ain't trustable! These boys can shoot a gnat off a mess of fresh grits at 500 yards in a heavy fog! It's a 2 hour drive to find a liberal. We don't attract too many northeastern type yankees. Your problem is being too civilized and having towns with shopping centers, running water, and electricity. Burn those down and the yankees will leave

these yankee's move to NC to .If i had a dollar foe each time a yankee said we done so and so this way up north.They use to come and hunt on anybodies property with out asking but when they buy property here they want let anybody hunt or fish on it .they are rude as hell .they run from the high taxes that they had up north and then want all the government programs they had up north so our taxes go up here making it just like what they left.I don't know how many yankees i have told why don't you go back up north if it is so bad here,when they start bitching about the way things are in NC.I have found out that the yankees that lived out in the rural areas up north are pretty good but the ones from the cities are loud mouths and obnoxious.This is from my having to work with them and living beside them.The one neighbor was from Mass and they built a road 20 feet over on my property.I told them i would just give them a ride of way for as long as they lived there but if they ever sold their property they would have to move the road or pay me for the land .I thought i was fair ,to them I was the biggest sob on the planet.If the tables were turned i would have been in court.Everybody they had dealings with there was trouble .

Have you noticed how all those liberals begin to complain about hunting (they want to ban it), raise your taxes so they can have paved roads, create zoning laws, etc.?

Here, we told them to move back to California if they wanted that lifestyle so bad.

Same here in Central Ky, but that's fine. What few neighbors I can actually see from our place, are polite when met on the road, but never bother anyone.

It's happening every where but it wouldn't be such a problem if they embraced the local customs . Instead they bring their corruption and failed ideologies with them .

I have family in Tennessee. I want to live there also but wife won't move.

I hunt in TN with family who have a lot of acres of private property to hunt with permission.

Where I grew up I started hunting at the back yard. Those days are over in that area. I fit right in with the people in TN. I have the same values and am respectful of the people as they are. I say good morning and thank you; hold a door for someone and wave to others going down the country roads. That is how I grew up and was raised.

Many companies are moving to TN and bringing thousands of people along with them. That is a major reason for so many people moving there around the major cities. Take a look at Nashville and see all the multi story office buildings going up. I see large cranes in all directions in the city.

The same things happened in the area I lived in. My school friends said, "You live in the woods". Yes....., and now there are no woods left.

Yes, you got to hate those transplants who move into an area and ruin it. Imagine the nerve of retired folks like me:

Buying or building a big house and paying lots of taxes on it while having zero kids to send to school compared to the guy living in a trailer/tent with 6 hungry kids on food stamps who complain about bad schools.

Improving their houses and making their property beautiful, thereby raising the property values of those all around them instead of bringing in a new trailer and broken equipment to discourage new buyers.

Eating out a lot and patronizing local businesses and buying things like new cars and boats to stimulate those who still work and keep the town afloat.

Obeying the game laws and shooting things in season rather than baiting in your back yard and blasting everything that walks by, day or night, in or out of season and not catching/keeping limitless amounts of fish.

Setting up stills, making meth, dealing drugs, abusing prescription drugs... what nerve, especially coming from well educated and professional people!

Volunteering to help the elderly and needy, many of which are the very same ones who resent their presence!

You see, there are two sides to every story. The implants can improve the quality of life, improve property values, create jobs, improve schools and infrastructure and government services, etc.

Sad but some people just can't see much past their noses.

Default Please stop moving here

In a state with only 41k square miles and over 6 million people a flood of warm bodies of almost any type can't be much help. These communities have been thriving and surviving long before a retiree migration with their big houses and dinners on the town were needed to save em.

There are still people who don't want to look at anyone's house whether it be a mobile home or your fine estate. Too many people are too damn many people regardless of income,lifestyle,behaviors or spending habits. That's the point. This place ain't gonna hold but so many before it starts looking like New Jersey.

My second-great grandmother was born in Tennessee in 1819. During the War of Northern Aggression she caught two yankee soldiers raiding her smokehouse. She didn't have a gun, but killed one with an axe and the other by hitting him over the head with a wooden bucket so hard that it split his skull open. And being the compassionate, God-fearing woman that she was, she gave 'em a decent Christian burial. Tennessee women are tough, and they know just what to do with a yankee when they see one!

The traditional Snowbird destinations like Florida, California, and Arizona are getting too expensive/crime-ridden/crowded. So they are now looking for alternative places like Tennessee. Land and housing is (relatively) cheap, taxes are lower, and the climate has the right degree of seasonal variation, without severe extremes.

Glad I live in rural Nebraska. The winters are too cold to attract these types of "immigrants".
