Hmmm: prior to Katrina greater Kansas City was not on my must see list let alone anywhere on the radar.

Take Tonganoxie, Kansas (someone? Please?) a mere 1/2 hr drive to football and baseball down US 24/40 - sorta like my old drive to the Superdome in New Orleans. Got a free invite for the 4th - BBQ, fireworks, quiet burb.

Let's hope it doesn't get 'discovered.'

heh heh heh - any rumors about The Yellow Brick Road or Dorothy are just myth's.

Hm...with all that smoke, I'm surprised you Californians have not turned into human jerky by now.

I lived in California, and it wasn't all that it was cracked up to be. Then again, I was 10 years younger, so I still haven't lost my rose colored glasses. I must have misplaced them about 8 years ago.

I suppose there are gradients, but in general no, I would not live in a place I didn't like just so I could retire earlier.

A lot of people seem to just adore California, and more power to them, but reading the title of this thread always seems to bring San Diego to mind for me. I have lived for years in each of seven different states (eight if one acknowledges that southern and northern California are essentially two states), and southern California was my least favorite by a mile.

I suppose that if living there meant the difference between working and FIRE, I would live there. Luckily, there is absolutely no reason why that would be the case.

Even San Diego had a few positive aspects. Gardening and birdwatching were fun there. But mostly it was not my cup of tea.

Interesting, W2R. Aside from Santa Barbara, San Diego might be my favorite place in the US. Just curious what you didn't like about it?
