Knoxville Tennessee - 07-28-2019, 08:13 AM

Well it's official. We are making a big move from the Omaha area to Knoxville in a month. Any advice on the area is appreciated. Any of you guys from around there? Thanks in advance. Matt

I lived in Knoxville for 9 months or as I like to say, did nine months in Knoxville.

Change your vehicle plates immediately. I got rear ended and I got the ticket. I fought it, cop delayed my case hearing by reshuffling the case down so a witness could show. I told the judge my brother is a policeman and told me if I was completely in the lane coming to a stop I was not at fault. Judge's response, 'that's usually the case but not today', guilty pay the fine. Cop didn't even ask me my side of the story.

I lived in the Cedar Bluff area in an apartment. It was a nice area. Farther west of downtown the better, if things haven't changed much.

Traffic on I-40 sucks. God help you if it rains. Not the best drivers.

People are relaxed and laid back, they're slow mentally. They are more proper. My gf at the time said she wouldn't think of going out without make up on. Southern hospitality is for southerners. At least your not coming from Yankee country as I did. You're a Yankee if you come visit, you're a damn Yankee if you come and stay as I was told.

Good things, the food first off. Knoxville is a test area for restaurants. There was a restaurant called Raffertys that had a 10oz prime rib Monday night's for $11.00, baked potato and salad. Some really great Mexican food. I was amazed how many gas stations had a flat top and served food. Get ready for chix biscuits.

Scenery is spectacular outside the city.

Gatlinburg is highly commercialized, go there with $$$.

You might consider living in Oak Ridge just outside of Knoxville.

Which reminds me of old milk in the carton, finish a gallon of milk and the carton sits there a couple days and the milk turns a bright green. Thought that was really weird. Never saw that in Michigan.

Good luck, change those plates and pick up the accent fast.


The rail is your best friend.

I think there's a class for that in TN and KY.....all the phony bologna modern country singers have to go through it before they are permitted to sing about their dead dogs, alcohol, honky tonks, cheating wives, and their pickup trucks.


If you tolerate this, then your children will be next.


I have never quoted someone in my signature....but I found such a shallow, idiotic, and inane comment like this worthy!

Unlike classic country singers who sang about trains, mama, alcohol, honky tonks, and cheating wives.


God bless each and every one of you

I don't like them much more than the modern ones....but atleast their 'twang' in their songs is real.

Omaha??
Man you are in trouble. They hate people from Omaha.

By guns. Ammo.

Get your American flag flying as soon as possible along with the state flag. Gadsden flag and Battle Flag.

No Deliverance jokes.

Make sure your "Trump in 2020" sign proudly displayed.

You need to put an old Chevy on blocks in the front yard. A dead refrigerator is helpful as well.

What ever you do. Dont try to fake a southern drawl. Your name is not Hillary.

Learn to love sweet tea.

Strangers will be waving at you. Wave back.

Find some local shine.

Never say AppalAchia. It is alway la not lay.

Oh and the law in TN is that you can accelerate through yellow lights.

If you cant understand what somebody is saying. Just smile and nod your head like an illegal alien.

If they ask you if you ever made it with your cousin.
Just tell them a gentleman kiss and tells. Then wink. They'll understand.

I hope this helps.


Keep your head down and admire the shot.


COVFEFE!!

Lol, I was down there as a salesperson in a furniture store, guy comes in and says, 'I need a ba fo ma chilens'. After asking him to repeat himself twice, ohhh, you need a bed for your children, got it.

Never saw so many people missing teeth in my life.

Thanks for the advice Scott. I can get new plates on the vehicles asap, I would anyway.
Sev, I read your suggestions to the wife. She'd like to meet you! I fly the American flag out front and the battle flag out back now. I'll work on getting my Trump 2020 sign...my Dad lives in Chattanooga and has extras. I'll sample any and all the shine I can find, twice to make sure.
I plan to do plenty of fishing in the hills, so deliverance jokes are out...
I hope to make some pool playing friends, so I'll dog it the first year or two. Most my friends don't want to play with me. Don't know why...
Anyway, thanks for the heads up advice. The wife took a job in Mascot Tn, 10 miles from Knoxville, so the dog and I decided to make the best of it and tag along. Should be an adventure.
No job for me. Darn it😊.

Sounds like life is good.
The no job thing is tough to take. However I am sure you are up to the task of sucking up pushing through it.

Reach out to ChevyBob. I believe he is in your area.
We missed each other a few years back during one of the Bristols races.

Say hey to the wife. It is fine lady that is willing to win the bread and butter for her man and let him and the hound go fishing.

Hey now, I am very proud to say I'm the house husband. I pack her lunch every day and send her to work. My house is on the same property as my business, so I'm glad to stay here and be 'holly homemaker'!! I will not fold laundry though....that's her job.

I'm lucky to have her...and would follow her just about anywhere. She's great.
I am worried about one thing. I only have 3 pairs of overalls now. Maybe I'll need a nice new dark blue pair...you know...for fancy occasions, or a nice night out? Maybe the wife will spring for a new pair.

Dont forget to pick up some suspenders for those non overall days.
