    i'd say come to alaska. but if you like road trips and driving... don't come to juneau. but if you like hiking, camping fishing, skiing, wilderness and all that....come to juneau.

    seriously though, we're a town acting like a big city. we're the 3rd largest in the state with a whopping population of 30k. and the state gives you a check every year just for living here. ( ok so it's we'll let them rape us and steal our oil, but whatever)

    move here. pretty please?

    Well if it was me I'd move to Bonaire, but that isn't in the country - it is just a wee tiny island off the coast of Venezuela - and long term my goal is to own a small apartment there and spend at least 3 months a year there. But that is just me.

    I love Florida though. I have always lived in the same town and I've traveled a lot of places and I am always very happy to just come home. I am 20 minutes from the beach, an hour from Orlando, and short of moving north or south by about 2 hours, I wouldn't go any further than that from here.

    The best place I ever lived was Kill Devil Hills, NC on the Outer banks of NC. The Outer Banks are a chain of barrier islands on the NC coast. It is BEAUTIFUL!

    I absolutely love Florida, but if you can't stand the heat and humidity I would steer clear. I live about 10-20 minutes outside of Tampa. I like the variety; I am 20 minutes from downtown Tampa, 20 minutes from the middle of no where, and 30-45 minutes to the "nice" beaches (Not all of which are tourist destinations... Yet).

    I like the local dog community too, it's really active. We are fairly pit bull friendly and there are monthly shows in my backyard.

    If moving were an option... Wyoming, North Carolina, Tennessee, and north Georgia top my list.

    What's it like there? Weather, people, wildlife ect..come on tell more PLEASEEEEE..
    I live in Indiana..Im probably in one of the safest places to live..never have to lock my door or car..i'm surrounded by corn fields..trees..farms..you name it..I do love here but mainly because my family is here and I have a husband that doesn't like change..
    It's cheap to live here..but nothing to do. We do have fishing hunting but as for wildlife..coyote fox deer coons..nothing out of this world to see..
    no mountains..no interesting wildlife..i wanna go live with the bears lol..

    I live in Washington D.C. I love it because people are much more dog-friendly here :) I don't like it because there is nowhere for my dog to run around, I have to drive to either Virginia or Maryland or any other suburbs and use my friends with fenced yards ::lol:: My brother lives in Texas, and I absolutely LOVE it! People are more laid back and the FOOD IS AMAZING! lol I could never live there though because of the humidity! I heard winters are to die for though!

    Thanks for all the awesome replies! Maybe this thread wasn't such a good idea after all... now I might want to move even more! LOL

    DeniseLynn, in total I have moved dozens of times. If I tried to count, it would take me a little bit LOL but I've only lived in two states and just moved around within those two... so it's not so bad.

    alaskapit - Alaska has ALWAYS been high on my list. I LOVE cold weather, because I love being really really warm and bundled up n whatnot LOL My heating bill would be insane though :(

    I'm pretty sure I'll visit my aunt in Florida in the summer. And my cousins in North Carolina at some point. I think I might have family in Oklahoma somewhere.... LOL

    Indiana sounds good... I like corn fields and empty land and nothing to do haha

    Gotta get back to packing!

    Jairi- Your butt better come see me before you leave the PNW!!!! lol lol I honestly have been thinking of moving to Portland. More dog clubs there and stuff. I would honestly say IF I had a TON of money and could move anywhere....I'd go to Germany. BUT keeping it in the states....I'd do Texas, Montana,OR or stay in WA more like Seattle area though.

    Good Luck and keep us updated!! How are Clairece and Ruger gonna do with the move?

    well i can only speak for juneau, not the rest of alaska....

    it's a rain forest, so if you don't like getting wet you should probably move to the desert. we get over 100 inches of rain a year. right now i can walk one way out my front door and be at a trail to climb a mountain in 5 min. or i could walk the other direction and hit the pacific ocean in about 6 min. the summer gets to a whopping mid 70's. winter is usually in the 30's with some cold spells dipping to single digits. snow isn't terrible, just tolerable.

    wildlife we have bears, whales, deer, eagles, tons of other birds, porcupine, marmot, etc etc etc. fishing is amazing! don't even need a boat to catch halibut and salmon. dog friendly, it seems like everyone in town has a dog.

    bad side is the cost of living is high. a single family 3 bedroom home goes for about 350k. and as dog friendly as it is, it's hard to find pet friendly housing. jobs are pretty easy to come by though, especially in the summer when all the tourists take over the town for 5 months.

    ok....i could go on and on. but i'll stop now.

    I live in Pasco County due west of where Adam lives...but I'd recommend moving to Citrus County it's third county to the north of Tampa...It's truly the Nature Coast... It has tons of acreage, plenty of oak trees, it has the, IMO, the greatest River the Withlacoochee River, also has the Crystal River, and Homosassa River (Home of the Manatees) all three rivers go into the Gulf of Mexico...Withlacoochee River is filled with gators...Air Boaters will NEVER run out of fun...too much Nature (it there's such a thing) It does have some down sides such as the noseeums and mosquitos however the mosquitos prefer new blood (outsiders) over the locals :lol: I used to live up and the only reason I moved back to Pasco was because that is one heck of daily drive to work :lol: granted I could have quit my job and got one up there but I didn't want to lose the time I already had invested in. I do go up there whenever I have a chance...I have friends up their.

    I recommend eastern Citrus County near the Withlacoochee River, definitely.

    I love living in central California (Monterey Bay area). The cost of housing is high depending on the area but it has really dropped over the past year. The rental market is still expensive and there are challenges finding dog friendly (especially dogs over 25lbs+).

    Places on my wishlist include Wisconsin (going to check it out in a month!), Idaho or return to Louisiana which is where my parents live. I recently met someone from Helena, MT and that sounded quite lovely.

    Good luck with your decision!

    Ok, I think I will move there tommorow! Can you post pictures? It sounds amazing!
    In some rural towns (non-tourist) in Wisconsin you can still buy a house for 30 grand! My favorite state is still Montana, it's so beautiful there. I love how you can go on these amazingly beautiful hikes and not see another soul.

    i prefer living in TN. good weather. smoky mountains less than an hour away. if i didnt live in East TN i would like to live somewhere in NC, Virginia, my birth state of Georgia, or possibly Florida. Somewhere in the south east for sure.
