Asheville has grown so much and the infrastructure hasn't kept up. Traffic in Charlotte is better at rush hour. Personally, the area of southwest VA is impressive to me, Grayson County is the least populated county east of the Mississippi at last check. I've always liked to dream about having about a 200-300 acre horse farm up in the Ocala/Gainesville area, maybe a thoroughbred retirement home like the one the wife and I visited in Paris, Kentucky a few years ago, and my own suite at BHG of course to compliment it. East Tennessee up near the Seymour area near Sevier County is nice, outside of the Pigeon Forge tourist trap, but it is Tennessee, and therefore is automatically disqualified.
