I have no idea what you just cryptically tried to say. I am from New
York where I lived on the ocean, which is where my mother lives to
this day and I wouldn't move back up there for any reason. Austin is
a hip, young city and its older croud are not put out to pasture. It's
a place full of retired people who think young and are vibrant.
So, please explain in English what you are trying to say.
I lived all over California. For relaxed living at "reasonable" prices,
consider the foothils, roughly along Hy 49, the old Goldrush Country. From
Grass Valley to Mariposa. Around 2000 feet altitude. The Valley is very hot
in summer and very foggy in winter. The coast is cool/cold in summer and
mild in winter.
Look for the cost of real estate, in all locations, on Realtor.com
Keep in mind that you lose 3.5 degrees temperature for every 1000 feet
elevation and 1.5 degrees for every 100 miles of latitude. (A huge
difference between San Francisco and San Diego, and between San Francisco
and Lake Tahoe)
CA is a place you retire FROM. Unless your a multi=millionaire. Very high
prices, high taxes, high prices, and the people suck. If you may be sending
kids to school, they'll become idiots. It's the land of being Politically
Correct. I would go to the NW - Or, WA. ID. Up state NY is very nice (buy a
4-wheel jeep). But CA would be my last choice. I live in San Diego, CA.
San Diego, a Navy city, a Republican City. California's version of
red-necks. Cops pack 45s. Their Representative "Duke" Cunningham was
just sentenced for selling defense contracts and the Fee Bees are
looking at the city to find out where the civil retirement funds went
to. The airport is a lot of fun too. Your plane will drop down among the
high rises before it lands. Exciting stuff. On the other hand, if you
are just passing through, there is Africa USA, the San Diego Zoo,
promenades along long sandy beaches and, a little place I like to call
There are good people who live there like my brother-in-law and my
brother lives just to the north. But then he is ex-marine (if there is
such a thing) and an ex-cop, so it kind of figures. He grows bananas in
his garden. No, not goes but, grows bananas.
Bob should take-up surfing and relax.
To the North East is Idyllwild, a community high in a pine forest,
overlooking Palms Springs and some serious desert.
As you move north in California, there is more and more of live and let
be attitude, until you get to us tree huggers.
