    I love thunderstorms, but cyclones (hurricanes, as we call them) can get a little scary. That's still an area I'd like to look into though...

    I'd fit in in that sense.

    An Australian nurse at our hospital mentions it quite a bit. I'm about the only person there that actually understands the game.

    Just never insult another team when people are around... The amount of people I have yelled at is crazy especially around state of origin

    Oh, I see. I guess the whole boobs thing might have to deal with sexual harassment charges or something?

    Man I hear that. A few miles away from me there is one of the richest communities in America. I have seen real the real life Malibus most wanted hanging out at Panera. Its sad and funny at the same time. I mean if you grew up in the hood what ever it is a survival technique. If you grew up with a silver or platinum card at least talk like you want to a private school

    Hit me up with any questions any time.

    I remember in a previous thread someone asked me why I keep three guns in my truck.

    Situations like this statement that I bolded are exactly why. You never know...

  16. Florida is great place been here for 12 years originally from nh

  17. If you want to be able to carry and own guns then stay in Tennessee. It's cheap there and gun laws are good. Just travel to Australia . Those jokers pretty much turned in all their guns years ago. Screw that.

    We actually like it, we feel safe knowing that everyone doesn't have guns and at least we have no sandy hook events.

  20. Ok no gun law debates last time we had one with some one claiming to be Australian people got banned and nasty conversation took place.
    I personally believe the guy was a troll who was only interested in talking garbage but why risk it.

  22. Moving?


    I would seriously consider the Carolinas (as someone else said). I lived in Raleigh for 10 years and loved it there. Especially good if you are a college sports fan. There are a number of great smaller cities there like Raleigh, Charlotte, Greenville SC, Columbia SC... etc. Close to the beaches and also the mountains and would establish just enough distance from TN. That's my .02.

    I spent a lot of my childhood in North Carolina. I've lived in Asheboro, Hickory, Greensboro and Mount Airy.

    I would highly consider moving back to North Carolina, but I don't think I'd consider South Carolina.

    I actually drove down to Georgia last night just riding around, thinking about moving down there, but I probably won't.

    I concur. I've been to SD a bunch of times, and everytime I swear I'm going to move there. New England is the boring armpit of America though so maybe that's part of the reason I like it so much. There's no shortage of things to do in SD, amd the women, oh man the women. Did I mention the women?

    I'm not sure I could re-adapt to the lifestyle and timezone. For example, most of my family lives in Tennessee/Georgia/Ohio so it would be difficult predicting good times to get in touch with them, living on the other side of the country from my family, etc.

    I'm trying to live life a little slower, I think California would speed it up a notch lol.
    My wife is a former Marine as well, in the corps. for 5 years at Pendleton, but she agrees with me and would move back there in a heartbeat if the opportunity arose.

    We probably just like different areas. I live in a secluded house that is built like a log cabin from inside/out. When I look in my front yard, I see miles and miles of farmland i.e. cows, horses, flat land, straight two lane highways, etc. but when I look behind my house I see mostly hills. At the same time, I can drive 15 miles and see red lights, malls, hotels, restaurants, shopping centers, gas stations, car dealerships, etc. That's my preference. California is just way too fast paced for me. I'd prefer to live in the same type of area, but be a little closer to the beach is all.

    Plus, there's not much to do in San Diego for an outdoorsman. I love to hunt, fish, go hiking, camping.

  27. Yeah, I understand that. We're in rural Vermont, we live on a mountain, hence my screen name. My wife and I both grew up in small towns and in houses off the beaten path. This is of my back deck:

    That's a beautiful view you have there man. Just plain beautiful. Do you have trouble in the summertime with bears?

    I think I've come to a solution to try either Colorado, Florida, Montana or Minnesota. I'm going to visit each place this summer and make a decision from there. I'd like to be wherever I decide by the time I'm 30 (I'm 28 now).

  29. Yeah, black bear population is growing in our area. Had one last summer plop down next to my garage and start eating my kids diapers right out of the trash can. Nasty. We have a growing population of bobcats too. Been taking small live stock lately. Supposedly people have been seeing catamounts again. Needless to say we carry firearms a lot.
