The funny thing is -- I like the geography and weather (except for winter being way too long) where I live in FAR north Illinois (almost Wisconsin). I live near some great state parks for biking and hiking and I love all the water in my area for swimming in the summer, and the rolling hills and moraines. The problem I tend to have with it is that most of my friends are married and I hardly EVER see them anymore and I dont really have family either. I don't really care for Chicago, and a lot of that has to do with people (except we do have great public transit). So I am not satisfied no. I just think its funny I LIKE about Illinois what most people hate and I dislike what most people like....go figure! I like that people are more direct in the Chicago area, but as far as in general....I like people better elsewhere

Wisconsin, it's so and so. I've lived here my whole life(19 years) and I must say I'm pretty fortunate to live in a beautiful area. The things that drive me nuts though is the summers here are busy busy busy! People come from all over to fish the lakes and cool off in the waterparks. I must say though God Bless em, without them we would have a very fragile tourist industry. I hope to check out different places throughout my life. I wouldn't mind spending some time in North Carolina around Boone. Or maybe Tennessee Tri-Cities. I will say that I do want some mountains but ya can't have everything right?

If you check out the Wisconsin forum on here you can look at the photo thread and check out the pictures I have. I take advantage of the natural beauty around here.

Tri Cities Tenn. Not bad but I need a big city, and miss the ocean too much.

I realize that they are very different places, but what specifically do you dislike about the east? I have lived in SoCal since 1977 and there are things that I miss about the east after living here all these years. I must add that I didn't move to Los Angeles myself, as that was the place I preferred living, but that was where my most of my husband's family was, and where he preferred to settle. There were some economic and career considerations to consider as well.

Before I was satisfied.

Currently I cant wait to get out. I am moving to NE PA because of my parents and I hope I enjoy it. Im only going to be there for 1 year than I am off to college.

Hope to go to college somewhere in the Midwest or New England.
