I lived in Sacramento for over 28 years, and I would go to SF when it got real hot in the valley.

I think my fondest earthquake was the time I watched the ground literally form a wave just like water from the ripples. I never had or since seen that before. But I miss the mountains and ocens the most. Watching the seals and whales and otters was so relaxing. And I laugh when people in the midwest talk about "mountains" here, they never seen the Sierra Nevada or Rockies for that matter. But one thing the midwest has are tornado's and I don't know which one is worse. Riding a motorcycle here all year around is unheard of, not like CA.

Fondest earthquake....not the type of thing I'd think of having a fondness of...but then I guess I've never been in a real one either.

I actually don't mind the milder ones. I enjoy the adrenaline rush they provide. I don't even bother heading for cover if it's under a 4.0 on the richter scale.

I've lived in soCal my whole 35 years, except for two spent in Hawaii. California is changing, and not for the better. If you want to live in a welfare state with high taxes, high crime rates, graffiti everywhere, association Nazis, over regulation of everything, racial divisions, snobbery, smog, etc..., then CA is right for you.
I'm thinking northern Nevada, Idaho, Wyoming, or Montana right now, but that kind of huge change doesn't sit well with the old lady.
Oh and don't forget the Grand Tetons, those mountains are spectacular.

Hey, don't lump us SF Bay Area dwellers in with your lot down in SoCal.

As far as where this state is headed, I completely agree with you. I make a decent income, but I can't even think of buying a house anytime soon. A 1 bedroom, 1 bath home down the street from where I rent is going for -- get this -- $460k!! Unfriggin' believeable. And someone will buy it.

I've seen a lot of the western half of the country in the past 5 - 6 years. My favorites areas so far are listed below:

Coastal Oregon -- absolutely beautiful
Southern Utah -- Zion Nat'l Park (nuff said)
Western Wyoming -- Grand Tetons and Yellowstone
Nothern Idaho -- green everywhere
Washington -- practically the whole state

Oh, don't even get me started on the Bay area. Let me say one positive: people in northern California tend to be much more friendly than soCal people, but they are also much more likely to be totally whacked in the head. Well, I tried to be positive.

I'll give you that. But what's better: delusional and friendly, or jaded and bitchy?

I went to school in the SF Bay area, and grew up and presently live in the southbay area of LA.

Give me the people in northern ca, with the weather, beaches, mountains, of southern ca.....I will take it.

I'd think the closest to that could be found down in Diego.
