Did anyone move out of Florida to another state because you thought you were fed up, then you realized how good you had it here and moved back to Fla. (or planning to move back)?

I was born and raised in West/Central Florida, Got fed up and left the state moving to Middle Tennessee. I missed the place and figured I made a mistake until I got back to Tampa and realized how big of a mess the state is, economy, housing market, and insurance is pretty much insane. So I left again and unless I comeback making $100k a year or win the lottery, I doubt I'll ever return.

Exactly how I feel. I told the wife today if I were to still live here I would go to either Sarasota, or back to Melbourne/Palm Bay. I still like it there.

Florida is a night and day difference from when I came here in 1994. it was actually good until 2004, then something happened...
