Hey, I go to Huntsville a few times a year, too! My in-laws live in Florence, but we go to Huntsville to "shop" or visit some of the kids museums. Lots of fun things to do there.
How did I find CM'ers? Well, I actually posted on the AO forum looking for them, much like Leah did here. One immediately replied and it was so funny when we found out we lived a couple of miles from each other. AND we went to church together!!! The other families are in a local homeschool group I was in. I just asked if anyone had heard of CM. It was pretty quiet in the meeting, but afterward several mom's said they were exploring the options. Now, they are 100% CM and we have new mom's asking questions more and more frequently. Somehow, through all of our connections, forums, etc., we seem to find each other!
