Well it's official. Closed on a house in Decatur TN last tuesday. Apparently this yankee is about to get some southern education! I'm sure to find a new clan of addicts down this way. Had the pleasure of meeting some of you at PF this year. Here's to a new adventure!!

I spent a few weeks in Athens for a work assignment several years back (worked at the nuclear plant just north of Decatur).  I really like that area.  Smokey mountains right there plus both Chattanooga and Knoxville are a short drive away.

I've been living at a hotel in Athens for 3 weeks. So you were at Watts Bar Nuclear Plant. That's very close to the new house. I hear it's a nice place to work.

Tom, the Valencia comes with me to continue work on it's LS swap. Some day ...

Yep, Watts Bar.   I can't remember the name of the hotel I stayed at but it was right across the street from the Red Robins.

I live in Tellico Plains. Not far at all. If you get a chance, it's a great place to go ride through the mountains.

Tim the first time I came down we went for a ride over the skyway! Then to bald river falls and a few other places around Tellico.
You're right next door! I'm working in Etowah at the Waupaca foundry. Sounds like we should hook up sometime
