  1. Too bad it was not the 26th, then you could come to the steel plate match at the Charlotte rifle range and see some R1's in action! Charlotte has really good Mexican restaurants, there is a good one one off I77 on the East of exit 6A (airport exit). There is also a South African shop in Matthews. Been living in SC 9 years now and never really went to Charlotte, most of the time I'm just travelling through, or going to the airport.
  2. The Blue Ridge Parkway is always interesting, with lots of stops and little towns. Boone and Blowing Rock is worth visiting. There is a military museum just over the border in GA if you take I85 that I have heard is really good.

    We Want To Go Back

    Why? The US is on the verge of imploding, I give them 3 more years, if that. And the EU another year. SA might be a much better place to go weather the shyte storm that is coming.
  4. Don't do it unless you have a REALLY good job offer, and then don't trust that much either..

    We Want To Go Back

    How difficult will it be to get a permanent visa for my American wife? We are going to SA in a couple of weeks for a vacation, and to check things out. Ek is so gatvol vir amerika ek sal amper enige iets doen, maar dalk is SA net erger..
  6. Stem saam, dit is bliksems warm hier in SC!
  7. You are making me miss Arizona all over again..
  8. I bought 5 houses in the last 27 years, all of them on a green card, and never had an issue. It might have helped that I was married to an American citizen for house 1, 2, 4 and 5, but #5 is only in my name since my wife was still back in AZ selling house #4. Might be a little different if you do not live in the US. In Hawaii the quickest way to get rid of the scam artists trying to sell you time shares, is to tell them you are not a US citizen, so different states may have different rules as well. To be honest, I would not invest in the real estate market here right now unless you need a house to live in. This slump have another 3-5 years to go, IF it will ever recover. Buy gold and silver instead in small denominations!
  9. One thing I can tell you, is that they have scanners at the airports that will pick up the magnetic stripes on the new bills issued since about 1995 or so, and that they know exactly what and how much you have. So declare it if more than $10,000 and be prepared to have a good reason for it. Do not enter the US with a visitors permit and tell them you want to open a bank account or buy property, you might get shown the door.

    Coyotes

    Just one thing to do with them..
  11. I don't live there, but will be in Mobile the week after Christmas. My wife's cousin lives in the Daphne/Spanish Fort area as well. Maybe we can meet up and have lunch and a beer somewhere!
  12. Did they ever try and adjust the settings? If you set it at low quality, performance will be poor. I have Vonage, and am very happy with it. Calls to a landline in SA is 10 cents a minute, but cellphones are 25 cents for me. We might have different packages.
  13. Like others said, unless you win the DV, it is hard to get into the US to work legally. And like I stated on this forum before, unless they were handing out green cards in lucky dip packets, why would anybody want to invest a lot of time and money to come to a country facing it's biggest economic (of it's own making) crisis ever?
