Currently in northeastern IN, due to job - and while can find much to like and enjoy herein, its not "home", and being more of a Ozarks and Blue Ridge hillbilly kinda guy, where my soul needs to walk in the shadows of ridges, kicking feet in the clear cool streams tumbling over worn rocks, chasing wild critters through the woods, the lack of such in this terrain is only reason that am dissatisfied here. Otherwise, great people, food, festivals, towns, parks, and even the gently rolling hills [esp. when bike riding!] with its softness are quite good. Make the best of it, and enjoy it all... lol, kinda like when told a waitress today that am on vacation, just an extended multi-year version...

Orange County, CA. Somewhat satisfied. Pros: Pleasant weather year round, great outdoor activities, good bicycle riding conditions, high paying job without too much stress, low crime community, not far from the ocean, mountains or desert. Cons: Home prices still outrageous, 1 br apartment rent very high, taxes very high. Surrounded by about 20 million people, any attempt to leave the metro area must be timed carefully to avoid massive traffic snarls on weekends. I'll survive here a few more years till I retire.

East Central Missouri

Absolutely enchanted by the countryside surrounding our home. The beginnings of the Ozarks, variety of wildlife, our 110 acre lake, four seasons, and my secret places in the woods to sit and replenish my soul.

Within 1 to 1 hour, 45 mins. of a few medium to large cities. St. Louis, Columbia, Jefferson City, and Rolla. These cities provide medical facilities, shopping, restaurants, and some Historic Treasures. As well as top rated universities and colleges. Major highways will take me anywhere I desire to explore. The many back roads are always leading to unknown and finally found, peeks into quaint and unusual dots on the map.

We have it all here, well, all but the beautiful Pacific and Atlantic. Many lakes and rivers abound in this area tho'.

All in all, very satisfied with this location. Now will someone please build my 'dream house' for me?

Although the area I live in is peaceful and does not have any traffic problems, I wish I could move to the mountains. I am a avid hiker and backpacker but live 6 hours away from the mountains. But I also have 21 years of seniority with my company and make good money. So here I stay.

I moved to Tucson from Maine 2 years ago. I love it here but my husband wants to move back to Maine somewhat soon.

Born in Dallas, TX, raised in the suburb of Plano, TX, still lovin' every minute of it!

Great food, great shopping, great people - what's not to love? Oh yeah, the many summer days with temps rising over 100-degrees, but I'm used to it.
