moved from NY before that lived in Canada I miss family, Tim Hortons and Saranac Lake. The list of things I've gained or do not miss is far greater. Like the other person said you'd have to drag me kicking and screaming out of this state.

Like most people on here, the only thing I miss is family/friends and some food. I've however managed to bring back some foods when I do my yearly visits (I mean who doesn't?) But I like where I'm at. Just so much more to do living in a bigger city, just wish family would move here.

Moved to Longmont from Florida in the 90's and I wish I could go back. Yeah Colorado is pretty and everything but I personally can't stand the cold or the perpetual dryness. Give me hot and humid every day and you won't ever hear a word outta me about bad weather.

I am just happy to be back home. I moved to another state for a couple years because the cost of living was dirt cheap. I ended up getting stuck there. My blood pressure spiked all the time and put on hypertension and anti anxiety meds and it still didnt help much. I moved back and my BP is now too low and no meds of any kind at all anymore! For me this is the best place to live. I love it here so much. Learned an expensive and valuable lesson.

I think people who are unhappy here or anywhere just really need to go where they are happy. Life is too short.

I am just happy to be home.
