    (cont) AZ also is a sunbelt state all the same, even if it isn't FL. Loose gun laws which is good and cheaper cost of living, but there could be other cons. I have to weigh it out. I may just have to take the place in Wilmington though esp if the cost will be low and she wont charge me much if anything to live there. I'd be back in my old area too.

    Moving to Mass again is still a possibility. I just have to leave FL toward the end of this year. Someone offered me a place in AZ but there may be a process to it like flying out, meeting the womans husband. She wants me to live there, he doesn't know me too well. I've talked to him over the phone but more briefly. THEN someone I knew from MA, an older woman yesterday offered me part of her place in Wilmington to live. That may be easier to arrange actually because my uncle could come down here from MA to help me move my stuff back. All I'd have to do is get the address and go there. Theres no extra person I'd have to be introduced to or anything plus, I never been to AZ. It would be stepping into the unknown. While it can be good to try something new, I may just end up returning to MA. My mom is visiting me in October here in FL so there will be a lot of discussion about things.

    Oh yes thats right isnt it? you're going to be looking out for the same storm in Lakeland.


    I don't know how the AZ thing will be arranged. I might just go out with all my stuff depending if I know I have a guaranteed place to stay. I could. I would maybe consider Mesa/Tempe.

    Oh, someone I been talking to now has possibly talked me into Arizona. Looking into it more, it may work if I can go there, get room and board, find work. Finding a job must be easier than in FL. BUT I will still have to see where this hurricane goes.

    I think Houston is a sign for things to come actually. 1-2 Yrs Tampa will be hit with a big one maybe sooner. Irma is supposed to knock NY out. My mom in short may not be able to move back to the East Coast if they get hit terribly. Or i see possible travel bans for awhile. Many airlines could get shut down.

    As far as Florida goes, I cant stay long term.. I also haven't made enough headway in the 3 years I been here for an area that is supposed to have some of the most opportunities for young people in FL. I haven't met any friends really, I haven't found a job. I am just floundering down here and yes, even in St Pete. But ya long term honestly.. I am looking to go to a more safer area when the SHTF also so I may consider upper NY where some of my family lives now too or I could go with NH somewhere. I just don't want to be around all the blacks and the druggies so I may eventually get a cheap property in the country after I live with my mom and save money for a little bit again.

    And I think of the high cost and aging population in MA and high COL too why that wont be long term, it just would be a better fit than FL I think but sometimes that's just enough. Take the lesser of 2 hells when try to build on something. Its my mom moving to MA though don't forget, her salary is a lot more than mine and even then, some areas are too expensive for her too. She doesn't even want to move to most of the towns in MA either that's the funny thing but shes fixated on Plymouth area now for some reason. Her friend kind of talked her into moving back and sold her a story how she may move closer to the cape but she hasn't moved in 10 years or so and has a lot of debt so, that also may not go as planned for them.

    Nice to see you yet again. I was the guy who posted in the Portland forum also and I see you hang around Tampa Bay forums now. I been to both places, I also come from MA.. you talked to me before. My mom is going to move back to MA btw so I may come back in a year or so I dunno. And yes.. those Florida drivers are terrible and north of St Pete/Tampa its bad too.

    Hi, you highly encouraged me to visit Portland first... and you stated for at least 3 months, which I won't be able to do Are there some clarifying questions you can ask me which might help me to know whether or not the city is right for me?

    Hey you I am curious... it looks like you're in Portland, OR right now... you stated you are familiar with Portland, ME, as well? I am interested in talking w/you about which may be the best fit for me. I know exactly what matters to me.

Referring to everyone from outside the South as "Yankees" is just plain weird from my perspective.

No, I'm not interested in church, hunting, country music, etc nor do i have any intention of assimilating into any of these.
I find the Sir bit ok, that doesn't bother me. What bothers me is the use of Mr and my first name when calling me. Such as...
