IceQueen, it's gonna be real, real, real HOT in the summer for you in the triangle (Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill) area. It regularly gets to the 90s and always gets to 100+ every summer at least once. It does not cool down much at night. There will be nights where it will be 80 or more at night. Of course, everything indoors here is air conditioned to freezing temps in the summer.
If you're interested you should come visit in August or July. Winter will be no problem, of course, but the summers might do you in. It's hot here from at least May through early October though the May and Oct highs are usu just in the 80s.
The mountains are significantly cooler, though certainly not Alaska weather. They're about 10 degrees cooler overall. The triangle will be much closer to Wilson, but if you're not wanting to visit family every weekend the mountains might work out well for you. I think that would be an area more like Alaska. Asheville or Boone could be nice and would have AP/MDC type resources. I don't know about hockey up there in the mountains as that's kind of a yankee sport. It's become much more popular in the triangle in the last 20-30 years or so since we've had an influx of northern transplants, but basketball is our main sport down here!
But I do know that the triangle area has an MDC meet up once a week. There is also another local forum that has a natural living and attachment parenting section that does meet ups sometimes..
