Do you have jobs out here? I haven't read every post but on a quick scan I don't see a mention of jobs.

I commonly meet people who make decent money in an east coast city and then find out that a comparable high-paying job doesn't exist in SoCal.

An old friend of mine (Marc) spent some time with us at our home in San Diego. San Diego is easy to like so he decided to move here. He's a dental surgeon and makes very good money in St Louis.

After some research, he discovered that dental surgeons in the San Diego area make about half what he makes in St Louis. As he tells it "Dental surgeons are a dime a dozen in San Diego. I'm not taking a big cut in pay to move to a high COL city."

So Marc never moved here. I have 4 Rams season tickets starting next NFL season. He and his wife will be the first couple to sit with us for a regular season game. He misses his Rams.
