Is your line of work, or work easy for you to find? I ask because some jobs are in demand in many places and others are in niche industries or in fields being downsized. So employment opportunities need to be considered. I also question what your quality of life would be like in expensive areas like San Diego or LA on $21K a year. I've been to Silver City. Quaint small town with an artsy mainstreet and it's close to the mountains. But I question how easy employment is found. Some might also get easily bored, others would love the quiet and small size. Why no other TX towns and what's driving your desire to leave DFW?

Default Adventure

I've never been elsewhere, and the prospect of starting over sounds challenging/exciting. I like where I am, and I love texas. I'm really just looking for some new scenery. I know this probably all sounds a little flippant or whimsical, but relocating is something I've considered off and on. I'm only now feeling like it would be possible. I have considered moving to Austin It fits a lot of the bill, but the more I read and look at pictures of NM the more I want at very least to visit and see what the possibilities could there. I know California is out of the question, because I just could not afford to live there. I don't really have a "field of work." I have a job and the company actually does have a branch in Albuquerque. So it all could work out. Who knows I'm really just in the what if, would this work, would that work kind of stage of this. Thanks for your feedback.
