Curious how many folks out there are in the Knoxville area? I just got a job offer in the area and will most likely be moving down in March. Lots of water and a long boating season, just a little different from Vermont ;-)

The only negative is that I do not know a single person in the area.....calling all boarders and wakesurfers....... :lol:

Three hrs away from Knoxville, east on I-40, Hickory NC. Go thru there, 3-4 times a year.
.
Love going thru the Gorge, beautiful scenery.
.
I've been on Dale Hollow and Center Hill, both excellent, I perfer Center Hill to Dale Hollow. idk, just 'seems' better. They'll be three hrs west of you, tho, give er take. The French Broad River looks like a great place to board. Prolly several good lakes around, eh?
.
The Moombas are built just south of Knoxville, in Maryville.
.
Excellent part of the country. If you're a city dweller, it'll take some getting used to unless moving into Kville at large. Mebe not so bad then, right?
.
I moved from Detroit to Hickory in '83, wouldn't go back, heck never been back.
.
Enjoy yer stay. Just get used to ppl calling you 'damn yankee'
.
in case ya dint no......
.
a yankee is a person frum the north visiting the south then goes home
.
a 'damn yankee' comes down and never leaves!
.

Thanks for the beta buttafewcoe! Maybe this move will allow us to cross paths (wakes hopefully). Is there a name for someone who grew up in the south, moved out west, then northeast and now back to the south :shock:

Morristown, TN. Cherokee Lake. Slalom and barefoot, no boarding (yet). I'm sure you'll like it down here. Just don't expect much snow to ski or board on.

Cherokee Lake - approx. 30 minutes from Ktown
Douglas Lake - less than 30 minutes from Ktown
Fort Loudon Lake - Downtown Ktown
Tellico Lake - Just west of Ktown, maybe 20 minutes west
Watts Bar Lake - less than 30 minutes west of Ktown

All times depending on where in Knoxville you plan to live.

Oh, I about forgot Norris Lake which is a favorite of many in the Ktown area.
