Fort Wayne because it's more centrally located to bigger cities.

Bozeman, MT or Cedar City, UT

Cedar City, UT. It's less isolated. Here's the driving distance (and time) from Cedar City to major Western cities:


171 miles (2:29) to Las Vegas
250 miles (3:32) to Salt Lake City
394 miles (5:41) to San Bernardino
407 miles (5:55) to Riverside
427 miles (7:02) to Phoenix
439 miles (6:28) to Los Angeles
500 miles (7:17) to San Diego
578 miles (8:42) to Denver
652 miles (10:14) to Sacramento
695 miles (10:16) to San Jose
726 miles (10:37) to Oakland
737 miles (11:04) to San Francisco


On the other hand, the only major cities within eight hours of Bozeman, MT are Salt Lake City and Calgary, and you'll need a passport to get to Calgary.

Bristol, TN or Lincoln, NE?

Bristol, TN! Absolutely. I love that area so much.

Here's an obscure set for y'all!

Ossipee, NH or Detroit, OREGON.

I'd probably go with Ossipee, NH although I'd dread the winters there. I'd rather be closer to Boston/the Northeast corridor.

Cairo, IL or Alexandria, LA?

Driving through Cairo feels like a reel life horror movie setting. I'll take Alexandria.

Portland ME or Portland OR?

Tough call. Portland OR because I prefer its natural beauty, It's like a city in a forest, and there is a view of Mt. Hood from everywhere in the city. It also has a much larger population, which I personally prefer, and it doesn't have freezing snowy winters.

Boulder CO or Asheville NC?

Asheville, NC. It's closer to more stuff than Boulder, CO is.

Des Moines, IA or Harrisburg, PA?

Harrisburg, due to a regional preference of the Northeast over the Midwest. Plus my professional license is reciprocal in Pennsylvania.

L.A. or Mexico City?

Los Angeles, but only if I was a millionaire. Mexico City, too chaotic, LA would be enough to handle on that front.

Where would you rather have a beach condo?

Mayan Riviera or Maui?
