Re: Roanoke VA

Once again... opportunity knocks somewhere else. Have a potential job opportunity in Roanoke, VA (job security confidence level is very low where I'm currently at).

Anyone know how the cost of living compares to other places, details about the area, etc.?

This looks pretty serious and any information is GREATLY appreciated!

TIA

That gives kind of a basic idea...

Unfortunately, it will be a pay cut but at least I won't have to worry that every day I walk through the door might be my last.

I'd take a pay cut as well just to eliminate that stress. *I know how you feel.

Re: Roanoke VA

I know that the Blue Ridge Parkway runs through Roanoke.

Life always looks better through bugs on a face shield.

Re: Roanoke VA

I've traveled through there quite a few times, some of the most beautiful country out there. Not all that populated, kinda out there in the sticks. Nice twisty roads (would have been great for your bike) and great scenery. I would like to live in that area although I don't see much of a job market. Might take it for granted after awhile and get very bored.
