Well I too am a northern transplant, now living in the upstate. I admit it is a differant vibe here, but I have found my niche and many who appreciate it. But I'm not sure my neighbors would concur!!!!
Welcome. Where in SC are you? I don't live in "Artocity" but I do live in SC. Actually there are quite a few of us here from the Carolinas. You might want to join Southeast Home Haunters Group, Maintained by BR1MSTON3. You will find close to 300 southern haunters. It's kind of nice to talk to friends in the same locations to share and commiserate with.
