I currently live in Frederick md, I have a pretty good job but, I hate it and it's dangerous. But with the cost of living, I couldn't make any less then I make. I grew up in Columbus, I know the city pretty well but I don't know many people. I would be moving without a job, but I do have about 7000.00 saved up. I have no kids and my car is paid. Am I stupid for wanting to do this?

Not stupid at all. I'm originally from Akron, but moved to NC about 17 yrs ago. When my bills are paid off and I have about the same amount of cash in the bank, I plan to do the same thing in about 2 years. In the last 6 months, I've had some good phone interviews, and a face-to-face interview that resulted in an offer (had to turn that one down), so yes it's possible to successfully interview for jobs out-of-state if you have a needed skillset. I love staying in Columbus for a couple days on my way back from visiting relatives in Cleveland. Your $7000 will go a lot further in OH than it will in MD. I would totally take the plunge if I were in your situation.

There is no harm if you're ready to take the leap and have faith in your resume and job hunting skills. You're money does go a lot further in OH than just about anywhere in the Mid Atlantic. Life is too short to stay someplace you're not happy with for the long run.
