I think Wyoming is one of the few places with lots of jobs right now.

If you are a conservative, avoid the Ashville NC area. Its known for being one of the more liberal hip type towns in the southeast. I would suggest Utah, lots of snow, mountains and conservative type politics.

Conservative as in less government, no welfare state, no redistribution of wealth, no stupid wars, don't bancrupt the system, NOT the current Republican party....
I suppose I am really more of a Libertarian

that pretty much leaves out NY , sorry

Lake Placid looked like it WAS a nice place at some time in the past, but when we went there a few years ago the area looked sort of abandoned and "has been" , lots of boarded up buildings, no decent grocery store, State park had graffiti all over it
It was very noticable compared to Vermont, where everything looks like a postcard

What? You don't want any more Floridians moving to NC?!


They have some snow, around 30'' a year on average. I have had to put snow chains on my truck on Beech Mountain.
I really like western NC. I think if we could find jobs there, that would be my first choice. Colorado Springs IS nice, but no beach within driving distance, very dry, no trees. I like rain.
At this point, a lot of places look much better than Florida

Thanks for posting the Utah photos very nice! Looks a lot like Colorado

Utah is one of the few States I have never been. I guess I need to visit. One potential problem, aren't most people in Utah Mormon? I am not. Would that be a problem fitting in with the locals?

Graffiti in Lake Placid? Are you sure? You probably would have loved Saranac Lake or Tupper Lake much better. Those two are close to Lake Placid. I also mentioned other cities and towns too. You might like Saratoga Springs or Glens Falls, as far as looks, having good schools, nice people, close to mountains and so on. I'm not sure your criteria for conservative would necessarily be the case in those two spots though.

Any way, it seems like Wyoming, Montana, Utah and most of Colorado are for you. I think Cheyenne, Casper and Green River would be good choices in WY.

Yep, graffiti in the State park. We took the ferry across the lake and drove south from there, stopping in Lake Placid and camping about 20 minutes from there. I forgot the name of the park. Lake Placid was aweful also. We tried to do laundry and ended up in a place downtown, that even in Florida, the health department would have shut down!! The trip to Lake Placid from the ferry had many very run down looking small towns.
If it makes you feel any better, the state park in NJ was worse

Something to be thankful for here, Florida has very nice state parks

I have added another State to my list : New Hampshire

Some of Wyoming is dry, flat and ugly btw. Only the western part is nice.

I think we have settled on New Hampshire. It has no income tax, sounds like a very Libertarian State, has mountains, lots of snow, forest and beach. It has it ALL! Now all we have to do is find jobs there
