Hello I live in south east Tenn, outside of Chattanooga....
After living in NY and spending 22 years on the PD it was somewhat of culture shock moving here, but I would not give it up for ANYTHING!!!!
I really love this part of the country!

Not from Tennessee but thinking about moving there. How do you guys think about a Yankee moving there? I have lived in Maryland since 1987 but I was born in Brooklyn and I grew up on Long Island. Just want to know if I would be welcomed living there.

Hey Zebra, we have good laws, no income tax but a high sales tax.

Zebra~~Yankees are welcomed! I talk Brooklynesse, also lived on LI for 40 yrs. Bought the house in TN in 2011 and 'commute' back & forth from LI 2 or 3 x's a year. Hope to get out of NY next year and return for keeps to a gun friendly land. Low taxes, beautiful country and the folks around couldn't be more friendly. Great temps, hardly any snow. If it does fall, it doesn't stay around.We're just below Knoxville, in a place called Tellico Village.

We are from Syracuse, but my job had moved us down to Columbia, SC (SEE Also: HELL). We were there for ten years, and decided to chuck it all and move to Knoxville. On the day we pulled down the street in our moving van, the first neighbors we met were all wearing Syracuse t-shirts. What are the odds? There are more northerners here than you think already. And East Tennessee is, in my opinion, the best weather in the country.

Wow! We're active again.
Zebra, come on down.
I'm originally an east coaster. New England and Maryland in particular.
I've been here for almost 5 years and am pleasantly surprised at my acceptance.
Of course you will always be "that Yankee" and get a fair amount of razzing but as long as you leave that northern liberal b.s. in Maryland, you'll be welcomed here.
Also, know what grits and country ham are (I recommend My Cousin Vinny for a grit tutorial), and take the grape jelly when you order a sausage biscuit.
Of course you'll be giving up things like eggs Benedict and corned beef hash unless you move to a city but then you can buy house here and shoot of of your front porch.
You can't do that in Marylandistand.

Ive lived all over the US, and the people here in Tennessee are some of the friendliest most accepting I've ever met.

Come on down, well go shoot something.
