If money weren't an issue, would your opinion about California change?

If money wasn't an issue, I would still leave. I would probably have a house in California for the winter though... but I would never want to live/work here forever. I used to love California... I don't anymore. 5 or 6 more months and I'm outa hear and nothing makes me happier than the idea of leaving!

I used to feel that way when I was in my early 20s. The Pacific Northwest was my salvation. I've since realized that CA's conveniences, mix of ideas, people and weather are mostly unmatched. Besides, the idea of a mega quake on Cascadia scares me a little about the Pac NW.

There are numerous people in California, who love it, including me. I know the pessimism towards California has been a complete overdose. Put things in perspective, this is a relocation website. There are people who can vent their anger from a little to steam. If you visit other state's forums, the same pessimism occurs. People's anger and frustration can last forever depending on their former or current sore location, it does not reflect or is the truth of the state, it is only a reflection of an individual's encounters and experiences.

You must have a degree in philosophy.

Thank you Tom! We all thought you were dead. We've desired to know what state you are currently located in? No, I won't ridicule you, no worries!

Someone else here (Jonah?) mentioned that Tom now lives in North Carolina.

Thanks Dennis..North Carolina has much cheaper homes in California, which is very encouraging for buyers. North Carolina has four distinct seasons, and it doesn't get as cold as the northern states in the eastern half of the country. It is a very diverse state, and the Spring and Fall are absolutely wonderful. Many of the towns in North Carolina are very friendly, family oriented, and well kept. The downside, North Carolina has very humid summers, bugs are out in full force. North Carolina also has a problem with violence stemming from illegal immigrant criminals, the ones who commit crimes. N.C. still does have some major racial issues, involving white and black. Just as in the South, North Carolina has problems with poverty.

We live in Monmouth County (shore area) of NJ. So many of the messages in this post remind me of NJ. It used to be a quiet shore town, but now we are a 'suburb' of NYC. The home prices have quadrupled, the Real Estate taxes are unbelievable, and it's over-crowded,without the infra-structure to match
the growing pop.
Everytime I go to S.Ca. I want to move there. Because, even if it is just as expensive to live there as here, at least you have the nice weather. We have had a pretty mild winter, but spring was short, the summer is HUMID and Buggy, and now it's cold and damp and grey...not much sun at all.
It's depressing.
