freedom and change has always been the calling of the West. You are not going to find it anywhere else. Certainly not in the Bible Belt South. If you want warmth, I would
look into AZ, NM, and Southern NV. California is a scary place. You don't want to go there. Southern Utah (St. George) is also a very very very nice place. Growing
like crazy.

I agree that California is scary, but I think it's a "financial scary". I certainly could not afford to move there! The weather's nice and it has everything you need, but I can't imagine paying $1700 per month for a one bedroom apartment in South Central.

I know a lot of people from California and they were SO happy to get out. If you read the California forum there's a lot of negativity about their state too.

Well, for starters, only southern AZ is decently warm in winter, northern AZ is a snowy, frigid place, especially Flagstaff. You can ride a bike in winter in southern AZ when its not raining or too cold, but summer? Unless youre riding naked, its not worth it. It would be a suicide mission to wear leathers and a helmet in AZ in summer, where they experience 5-6 months of 100 degrees and up. NM is too cold to ride in winter, IMO. Highs in most areas of the state are in the 40s, maybe 50s and an odd 60s here and there, nights are downright cold. Las Cruces would be your best bet for winter riding in NM, but summers are quite toasty too, but not nearly as hot as Phoenix. Southern Nevada is also brutally hot for 4-6 months in summer, and decently mild in winter, with occasional snowfall in Vegas. Nights are cold to mild.
