I moved here to get away from the cold so that rules out northern Michigan, New York or Kansas lol from what I can tell online Greenville looks nice, affordable and plenty of jobs. But I've never been. What's the wheeling like? Much hiking and rock climbing/bouldering? I take it hunting and fishing is good?
Hunting and fishing is just incredible. You have warm water species in most of the lakes and nearby white water rivers for trout. I'm a fly fisherman so that's my preference. Plenty of hiking and great mtn biking in that area as well.

Wheeling has gotten better but it's mainly parks or OHV areas. It's not like out here where you can do a multi-day run like on the Mojave or Bradshaw Roads. There's just more population and smaller areas back there so you're gonna come across a road, town, or posted property pretty quick.

Even though my wife's family is in Charleston I'd prefer to move to the mtns of NC. Again, I prefer fishing for trout and rivers so that's my choice. There's just so much to do there and Charleston and the coast is only 4-5 hours away.

Ah, ok. I figured the hunting and fishing are incredible. That's good to hear. I had suspected the same about the wheeling. What's the terrain like? Hen you say parks or OHV, do you have to pay to play, or is it open? Some good rocks like here or a combo kind of like up north? Please tell me its not all mud lol

Have you been to Greenville? If it happens, that's the town we'd be going to. I'm curious what the local scene is like: the people, food, music, demographic (anything but mobs of hipsters is acceptable, I'm dying here! lol) etc. I really don't know much about that area.

Appreciate the info
