Where would you be willing to move?

If you met someone off the internet, fell in love, and they wanted you to move to where they lived, are there places that you would not want to move to, because of unpredictable and dangerous weather conditions that occur seasonally. eg: a tornado corridor, hurricanes, major flooding plateaus, etc.

Tornadoes in the past decade have become a norm here, where as prior to 15 yrs ago, they were non-existent. Yet I still don't worry about them. But States like Oklahoma, Kansas, etc. I would never want to live there.

Disclaimer: No insult is meant toward people who live in such States and love where they live. Every place has it's beauty.
I was watching the movie "Twister" and it made me ask myself this question. So now I'm asking everyone else.

Marianna, I'm with you and Gemini...I also love the tropical beaches and ocean. But equally as much, I love the Rocky Mtns too! I'd probably end up living my life enjoying both. Don't know what the future brings, but I may move to the tropics one day if not just as a snowbird, like the rest of the Cdn snowbirds.

Re:
Hey Nomad, you will be in NYC? I just caught this. You are welcome to join my friends and I. billzeke who used to post more regularly has met them and can attest that they are great people. Only one he will not have met. I'm not sure what our plans are beyond Macey's, but that should be cool. I'm hoping we can watch it from my friend's husband's office building! :-)

Nomad...I love NYC too. I was there end of June, and will be there end of November for Macey's parade on American Thanks Giving. Looking forward to it.

Cutiebooty...I love where I live also. It's a beautiful clean modern city. Not too big, and not alot of crime. It's close to the mountains. For personal reasons, I probably want to move away. But I would always keep my house & property so that I would have a place of my own to come back to when I visited my kids. They could stay with me.
Even if I never meet someone, I will still move once my kids are totally independent.

Hi there

I travel quite a lot, hence the name.

I think I could adjust to most places after living in Africa for so long.

The two places I am really attached too are New York - just love it there and visit at least 4 times a year.

Zanzibar - in the Indian Ocean, great place to relax, wonderful people, fabulous weather, incredible sunsets, clear waters for diving, interesting history and I could really sit down and write.

Lately I've been thinking somewhere warm would be nice...like Mexico...Cancun, or Los Cabos
There is a demand for teaching English as a 2nd language.
I especially feel this way today after Winter blew in last night and left a cold carpet of the white stuff! Brrrr...

Cubby!! I got an idea man!! Where are you?


I just read your profile, Mandalay...you crack me up! Do you work for GM? That's all I know that's in Parma.


Hey Red!

Thanks! Love to make others laugh...makes me feel good!

No, I don't work for GM but the Chevy plant is about 2 min. from where I work. I do work in the manufacturing sector of the economy and work for a business that supplies some product to many of the major automotive companies.

Absolutely the perfection solution! So where is your other home, bill?
My choices would be:
Winters: Either AZ or northern (Bay Area) CA
Summers: northern (Bay Area) CA or actually, right here in MI. It's not too hot (very often) and there's no devastating weather problems. While the humidity can be high, it's not as high as in the south and the Great Lakes are there to ease that pain. Plus, there's about a million (okay, exaggeration, but there is a lot) of golf courses.


There are a lot more good choices for the summer than there are for the winter. I used to have a house on a lake in WI. when I lived in Chicago but I sold it because it was too far from Tucson. I like Aspen, CO a lot. Any of the ski areas are good though. I like the OR and WA. coast, Vancouver Island and a lot of southwestern B.C. including the Okanagan Valley. Tucson is great for almost 10 months out of the year. I always leave in the summer.

Hi Mandalay, nice to c'ya again. Great picture! Don't you look relaxed and comfy.
I've been in a few of those RV's you're talking about! They are great...expandable walls, really roomy...they are massive! I believe they have a video camera on the back so you can backup the vehicle.
If you buy one of those, I expect to see you here in Canada next Summer! Calgary Stampede begins July 6 to 16, and I'll be in Calgary then. After that you'll have to come to lake country in B.C. :-) Cubster can come too!

I could have lived anywhere on the planet, so I picked where I live. I'm not moving. There is no where like this place for the things a millionaire enjoys. Except a shortage of girls. But the internet fixes that problem.

Would a good question, Sharon. I have put alot of thought into this situation myself. I have lived many places...CA, PA, NC, SC, IL, KY. Ideally, I would like to live somewhere that the seasons change, but I wouldn't freeze my azz off every winter. Not only that, I have come to prefer small town to big city. The one place I really loved was Lexington KY. It has so much history and it is just a beautiful place to live. I would really love to relocate there...and wish I could have both my children with me!!!
