Must have been a tough move!

Another thing I don't remember hearing is "back west". Mostly Americans move "out west", and if they return to see their family they are going "back east".

I have spent ~43 of the past 45 years within 2 miles or less of Pacific salt. But I still find myself going "back east". Connector words and prepositions give away so much about who we are and how we structure our world. I am sure you have noticed that even within California people often go up north, from SoCal to the Bay area.
