Wow, thank you folks! Some good pointers already. Especially the state of NC, which I didn't have on the map until now but does look very nice from pics and what I have read on here. I am not sure about Texas, but have only been to San Antonio, I hear Austin is pretty cool, though. Not a big fan of Flagstaff. The surrounding area is nice but didn't like the town itself that much. Also a bit remote in the sense that there isn't a bigger city anywhere near. Prescott is pretty but not much going on for young folks I think. Tucson, hmmm, not sure. Would have to visit again. It's been a long time. I have been wanting to visit Santa Fee. Looks like a lovely place. Reno, not sure about living in a Casino town. But I read it is changing. California sure has nice places but most are propably too expensive for me (not a millionaire). I know that in the end it will have to be a compromise. NC looks nice despite the somewhat wetter and cooler climate and it might be a bit more difficult to afford an acre. On the other hand, it does seem to have a nice feel to it. Will have to visit. What do people think about Colorado?
Again, thanks for all the good pointers so far. Keep them coming, please.

I'm a native Renoite and Reno is not liberal by any means... I always new it was too conservative but now that I've lived in Vermont for 1 year, I can see just how conservative it is.

Temecula, California. The other wine country. Inexpensive by California Standards. Close enough to the ocean if you really need to go there. 2 season climate. Not sure about the large lots maybe on the outskirts.

Regarding deserts, You either love it or hate it. I never thought I would enjoy the desert until I actually spent time there.
