We live in the country without close neighbors, little traffic and I can see the stars any time they are out and there is no cloud cover.

As much as I complain about the COL, politics, rules for everything and lots of other problems here in southern California, I still find it hard to leave. Ive been cross country several times, been to 27 states and spent plenty of time away from home. Its hard to beat. The weather here in Orange County, CA is near perfect most the year, we have amazing beaches, great restaurants and nightlife and its a short drive to anything you could ever want. Deserts, mountains, lakes, rivers, countryside...its all here.

The slower pace of life. The scenery: the farms and open country around here are a pleasant sight. The fact that we have four seasons, and accumulating snow can be expected every winter (certainly not true in most of the inhabited places of the world). There are many attractions within a short driving distance, such as the mountains and the shore. Philadelphia is not that far away, and for that matter, neither is New York. But none of the problems either of those two cities are present here. We may have a dearth of amenities here (at least according to some) but we have everything I need. We even have a rodeo: I'd rather spend a night there than at any attraction the city offers.

central NJ.... 30 minutes to the beach. about an hour to the mountains. 90 minutes into NYC, 45 minutes into Philadephia.

Farms within 15 minutes of my house.

Snow in the winter, a GORGEOUS autumn, and warm enough in the summer to swim in the Atlantic.

Won't even consider moving...
