I take it that it's cheap there? That's what I heard. That makes it ideal, hehe. Still, the entire chain is likely to be a tourist attraction, so attempting to stay away from the tourist traps is the nearly impossible trick to beat.quote:

Whew! Sounds like you've been all over the west. You must be called a prairie cat by now, hehe.quote:
I'm from Iowa originally.
I was a gypsy in childhood because of my Moms Job we lived in Wyoming and Colorado. Now I'm in Missouri.
I'm not saying that it's as much the cold as it the constant shifting in temperature and change of weather. That in itself is frustrating and annoying. You never really know what it's like outside until you get dressed and go outside.quote:
I hear you on the cold up in Michigan. When we were living in Laramie the snow and dry cold just about drove me crazy.
Well, I can speak for California ~ and you can have it! I just recently moved AWAY from there and don't miss it a bit! Busy, busy, busy, no peace there (unless you are up in the mountains by yourself - but forget Tahoe) If you like peace, don't go to California.quote:
Still, I wouldn't mind Hawaii or even California
Yes, I do like peace; I hate crowded places. My sister lives there, and from what I hear, the cost of living there is expensive. Florida, on the other hand, I hear is much cheaper. Of course, that's all relative. Kyrila, what are living expenses like in Florida?quote:

I can believe it. Unfortunately, that's everywhere.quote:
As for good schools? Which ones did you mean? Certainly not the public schools! They can't even afford textbooks for the kids. Don't know where all that lottery money is going--someone's pocket, I presume, because it's not going to the kids
My guess it that since a lot of people like being by the coast, the money brought in from tourism makes such a location worth the damage caused. It's a shame that profit supersedes environmental protection.quote:
That'll teach you to build so close to the beach! What do you think water does? IT ERODES!!!
Actually, I thought about buying myself a camper. It's probably cheaper and certainly more beneficial that living in a house or apartment, especially since you can travel with it.quote:
You can take your home with you when disaster strikes
Actually, I thought about living in France, too. No doubt THAT is expensive. Still, I would like to at least visit.quote:
Except maybe France. (Trying to talk my boss into opening a franchise of our store at Disneyland Paris!)
Astronomical! *knocks on wood top of his desk* Too high to even consider. That's one reason I prefer the more tropical climates.quote:
I don't want to think of how much we're spending on heating.
I don't like the sweltering heat or humidity either--and I've heard that Florida gets plenty of that--but I hate the biting cold of winter even worse. Perpetual summer sounds fine with me, as long as it's not too hot and sweaty.quote:
I'd hate to live anywhere where it's hot all the time. I hate summer and humidity, so I certainly wouldn't want to live in perpetual summer.
Heaven help those at Myrtle Beach (and the stream of islands along the coast)!quote:
We're too far inland for any hurricanes.
