I agree, a visit will be best. I'm actually flying up sometime within the next two weeks to make preparations for my move. My heart is at peace everytime I think of moving there, so that is an excellent sign. I know there will be some adjusting to get use to, but me and my family are friendly folks. We get along with almost everyone. : )

We never did visit before coming...we *should* have, but it just didn't happen. Anyway, it worked out for us, we love it here. I hope you will too.

Hey! Glad you were able to make a visit and look around for yourself! My DH and I moved here 16 years ago from NJ. It WAS a culture shock and took a bit getting used to, but I can honestly tell you that I will never live anywhere else.

You seem to have an awesome attitude, so I have no doubt you will fit in just fine!

Glad to hear it, what areas did you check out? Wait until you see the mountains all covered in snow, it looks amazing.

Or conversely, a $650/mo apartment in Millcreek if the OP can afford much more?

I read it as someone trying to stir up racist comments.

I don't think this was a real post. For one thing taking two children out of CA in regards to custody issues isn't that easy.

IMO, the OP was very vague and was trying to "stir the pot". Too many things didn't make sense, like they couldn't just give an idea where in SLC they would be working in regards to a commute, they never visited SLC, and again the custody issues involving CA and taking children out of state.

Looks like you didn't read on. Actually custody out of CA can be easy under the right circumstances.

If you have any actual questions I'm sure people here would be glad to help, but I get the impression that you're posting just for the sake of doing so. I also think you're dramatically overestimating how exotic you will be.

Exactly, someone who is serious about moving somewhere has done some research on their own and has specific questions.

Sounds like something a teenager would write.

What are you talking about? OP said they're a single mom in CA with two sons who are 12yrs apart in age. There is either a father or fathers involved.

I know many in CA who are divorced and can't leave the county their in never mind the state without great difficulty in regards to custody issues.

Someone who is really interested in relocating and has a real job offer has specific questions.

IMO, this post sounds fake.
