Maybe they need to ask more questions. Or maybe I'm rural. Let's see.............

NOT AS GOOD OF AN ADJUSTMENT AS I WAS HOPING.

1. Fairfax 94930
2. Topanga 90290
3. Berkeley 94708
4. Cazadero 95421

Apparently I don't identify with whom I think I do.

LOL I got Cazadero, too. Which I don't recall ever visiting, but it's close to Santa Rosa and the ocean, which could be nice.

I am Democrat, but prefer a more rural setting, so I knew I wouldn't fit the picture. It says Democrats are usually into urban living.

And I told it not to include global warming or gun control - irritates me that people assume all Democrats are crazy about global warming or gun control. I believe in some gun control, but I wouldn't want our rights to have guns taken away. I also have no problem with Monsanto making better plants for farmers (but I want to keep my heirloom seeds at home, thank you), and I don't think high fructose corn syrup is evil.

I guess I'm too middle-of-the-road to pin down for these types of things.

But, it was fun.

I thought it was too. Other tests have put me as one hair to the left of middle-of-the-road, with a fair libertarian bent. I was okay with that. Accepted it even.

But this simple test concludes I'm a proud "People's Republic of ________" liberal. I probably am rich (or madly in debt), graduated college, and like organic food and exercising. I probably do yoga, or whatever exercise is popular at the moment. BUT I'm none of those things. Not even close.

I had my 14 year old son and my wife take it. My wife got practically the same results as me (she either tries to do that on purpose, or is just as nutty as me), even though she had an answer or two different. My son got all these cool as heck beach locations down south, and in our home state, got a bunch of super hip urban hoods. My son's responses were pretty liberal, then he started thinking, and got all conservative for a minute before talking himself back out of it (obv his political brain is still developing).

I messed with it further, and tried to be as conservative and rural as possible. I got a bunch of depopulated farm locations.

I guess what the net result is: the suburbs is where we see all the clashes.

Mount Hamilton is in the Bay Area in Santa Clara County. Part of the Diablo range.

I was just thur Callahan last week. Love the area. The drive west from there, Hwy.93 thur Cecilville to HWY.96 is my new favorite drive. Salmon river rd. reminds me of some of Idaho's river canyons.

I got the same town as you, but I am happy where I live in San Diego and I am a CA native.

Maybe this thread should be made a sticky and whenever OPs ask where to live they could be directed to the link in this thread.

LOL if only it were that simple. They're always looking for la la land. And I don't mean L.A.

I want some place urban that's really walkable with great schools and that's safe with a large yard and a 4 bedroom house where I can also have my horse where people are easy going and open minded about pit bulls and gun control that also has great yoga classes and organic gluten free food with low cost of living and lots of high paying jobs that never gets hotter than 80 degrees or colder than 60 degrees and is sunny and never foggy and near the beach and mountains and my budget is $1500/month. Can you tell me where in CA I should move?
