Haven't been on here in a while, hello again Monkeys. Here is the skinny: I've lived in Charlotte for 13 years now, suffice to say there there about a thousand and one things that I hate about it by now, lately it has been the fact that most of the trails have taken heavy damage due to the 40" of rain this season. Clay=no ride when wet. So I am entertaining a move within the next year and I know you guys live all over, so here is what I want. I want to be within an hour from the mountains. I like medium sized cities like Charlotte. Price of living can't be ridiculous. I don't mind humid, and I don't mind hot, just not the two together. Charlotte has both and I'm over it. I kinda miss snow. I want a healthy mountain bike community with enough trails that I don't have to ride the same trail twice in a month. A healthy economy is very important, I want to be able to find a design job, and maybe a part-time bike mechanic job. A good college nearby is also important. I have entertained: Portland, OR Seattle, WA SF, CA Discuss, instruct, and suggest.
