    Its funny because my wife still has it in her head she has to leave 45 minutes early to get to work, which is about 15 miles away. It takes like 12 minutes to get there. When we lived in Charleston, we lived 8 miles away and it took about 45 minutes to get there in the morning.

    I was just there (orange county/newport beach) at the beginning of December and I always love to go there. We got lots of family out there but it's just way too expensive to live there so for now we only dream of moving out there, but hey- maybe someday. Because if I ever get enough to live out there, for sure I wouldn't hesitate to move there. I guess for now I have to live with going there once a year....
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Yeah, California is great if you like plastic people, sirens all hours of the night, high taxes, nanny government in every aspect of your business, pitiful work ethics, and traffic that makes getting to any one of these activities a nightmare.

    And for the record, Alaska has all of those activities (yes, even the surfing) except it's a comfortable 45 degrees when doing them instead of scorching hot.

    I hate California.

    To your country. Choosing that frozen hellhole called Alaska over the warmth of California. Do you know they're not even real Americans? They used to be Russians.

    George Washington didn't use his freedom of speech to win the war with Britain... He shot them.

    Re: I have found out why people hate California.

    I don't know if I could handle Cali or Alaska.

    I've been to both places, and while Alaska would be more ideal for me, I was there during the summer. The cold I could adapt to, but I don't know about the lack of sunshine.

    I have no idea why people "hate" california - It the most perfect state for outdoor adventures, which I love, oceans, deserts, mountains, red wood forests, etc.
