I have good intentions putting this thread up. I put in the smack area because I have no idea what this is going to start. I have a bachelors degree in accounting and then joined the Army infantry where I did two deployments to Afghanistan. I got out of the Army as an E-5. I just signed a lease to an apartment in Durham. I am from Minnesota, but lived in Fayetteville for a year while in the Army, so I am somewhat familiar with the area.
I am basically looking for any advice I can get on the area. With my background is Charlotte a better fit? I know that I may be considered a Yankee and I know I personally love the southern accent and most of the southern culture, other than the racist types. I have a wife and a one year old child. I am an avid Panthers fan and always have been since I was 6 or 7. Same with UNC basketball. I am down to become a Hornets fan and since NC doesnt have a baseball team it means I can still be a Twins fan. Just looking for friendly help. I do not have a job lined up yet, so maybe I could get some networking done here. Thanks again.
