Some of the prettier parts of TN wouldn't be bad. Just stay away from Memphis area. Personally I am going to Montana.
What town are you from, Tex? I've got some family in Grapevine, Frisco, and Euless.We are in the same boat. My wife and I are both from the Dallas area. Dallas, like any other large city is a cesspool and taxes are way too high. We're looking to move 1-1.5 hours South or East of Dallas. As you get away from the city, land prices and cost of living go down. The availability of shopping and medical care go down also, so take that into consideration.
We live between Red Oak and Waxahachie. 30 minutes South of Downtown Dallas. We aren't planning to move anywhere until all the kids get out of high school. That's about 11 years. We hope to start looking for land in about 5 or 6 years. With inlaws getting up in age, we don't want to move far now anyway, but it will happen.What town are you from, Tex?
