I think if there were any other state I might consider living in (besides TX) its Virginia. Somewhere near Washington / Dulles Airport, around Fox Mill Road and Reston Pkwy. I just dont happen to have $425,000 handy. :'(

My second choice would be Colorado because of the views from the mountains and the crisp, fresh air up there.

What other state would you consider living in?

Taking economics out of the equation; Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Washington, and West Virginia. I'd also like the mountains of MD.

Colorado, Alaska, Washington, Oregon, California (maybe), maybe Utah.

It's all about the mountains and the water.

Truckee, CA but apparently no single women there.. so if I got married maybe. But having Squaw 20 minutes down the road would be pretty awesome

Jackson Hole if housing costs were not part of the equation

Wouldn't you still have to pay OR income tax? I would think living in Vancouver and working in Portland is best.

Yea I got mixed up. I switched them. :) Washington = no income tax, OR = no sales tax. Living near border between the states also works.

Currently live in Los Angeles.

I'd love to move back to Washington, probably the Olympia area or a bit further north of Seattle (bellingham / everett maybe).

Staying in Cali, would love to live in the santa barabara or san luis obispo areas. Both beautiful, light on traffic/urban sprawl, and ton of stuff to do.

Oregon in the willamette valley area is amazing as well.

What do you do? Seattle economy is doing well for tech, just show up

I was a student until my mom stopped paying for school, instead of taking out tons of loans I have just been working but, in Montgomery county MD working for just above minimum wage allows for little to no savings. Essentially I am stuck here for now.

The only real job experience I have is 5 years cashier and 3 years working in a printshop. At 19 years old I have good job experience but I still can't seem to find anything in this area, even at minimum wage.

I love living in Virginia. We are maybe 20 minutes away from Reagan Int'l. We can go to DC whenever we want and be back home within the hour....of course, traffic permitting.

Haha, traffic will be the biggest problem in this area for sure.

California (probably San Diego area) or NYC.

Maybe someday I'll split my time between the two.

If I didn't have my wife and kids I'd love to give NYC a shot.

Otherwise I really would like to move to either WA, OR, or CO. Either way, I'm done with the south! :p

Probably SoCal (San Diego). Unfortunately, I need to make a lot more money before I can consider that. :D

Why Truckee?
