I have found the activities that I enjoy are pretty much nonexistent in the F/M area.

There really is no car culture to speak of.

The dating scene is pretty dismal for a guy in his 30ís. IMO any woman who is worth courting has been married or has gone into hiding.

Iím also really into bicycling road and mountain. Not much of either going on it could have to do with the area being flat and cold. I think road cycling is too dangerous in this town.

The area has what I perceive to be a huge problem with alcohol abuse.

A good number of people are really into passive activities i.e. watching football, drinking, trivia etc. I have no interest in any of that stuff.

The area has provided me with a well paying career and the means to get ahead, but in the long-term itís just not for me.

Nothing wrong with moving ahead in life to somewhere you like better. I moved around a lot moving up in my career and never regretted it. I was single at the time so it made it easier. Glad you shared what you did as it may help others who want to relocate here.

My love for cold weather and flat land supersedes most everything else (except my family of course) so will be here for a long time to come yet. My kids are quite young still.

Come on Dan, we all know, that as a Met, you just wanted to live someplace where you could see the weather coming from 200 miles away.

Here is a link you might be able to use.
Special Education - Early Childhood - Home

I'd call and ask about what services they provide that might benefit your son. The school system in this area is very good.

Yes, there are all kinds of youth sports.
