    My family and I will be relocating to Knoxville Tennessee (home of the UT Volunteers) next July.

    Does anybody have any information about the area? Likes? Dislikes? Comments?

    I will be transferring my job but have never been to Tennessee and would like some input so I sort of know what to expect.

    Thanks, Darla

    Darla, you'll fall in love with Tennessee. Be warned, however, some of our die-hard Vol fans are of sore disposition right now.

    When you get a chance, be sure to visit NE Tennessee, a.k.a. God's Country. ;)

    And Timothy, I have every intention of getting to know all of Eastern Tennessee. I hear it's beautiful over there.

    My first trip will be Spring Break (third week of March). I can't wait!

    BTW, when Arkansas plays Tennessee Saturday night, I'm rootin' for the Vols! :eek: :D ;)

    Just remember, you know what they say about all orange uniforms.

    They are so ugly, it takes a volunteer to wear one.

    We may not be pretty, but we are practical. I mean, what other color works for going to the ball-game on Saturday, deer hunting on Sunday, and hauling trash on Monday? :eek:

    You a Bulldawg fan?
