Well, I've already lived there twice, so I already found it.

Why on earth would you move back into a dumpster fire of a state? The only one that competes on the race to bankruptcy is Illinoisy, where I currenty live.

I'm moving to where the giant redwoods grow, the Lost Coast. 250 miles north of San Francisco. 50 to 70 F average temp all year round.

If the wind blows wrong, you should be able to smell the crap on the sidewalk in Frisco.

Will you just stay put somewhere?

My son took me on a "bucket list" tour of northern California last October so I could see the giant redwoods at least once before I assume room temperature. We stayed at the Historic Benbow Inn near Garberville, toured the Avenue of the Giants and then made a side trip up to Eureka just for the hell of it. We discovered a great oyster bar https://www.cafewaterfronteureka.com/ and had some fantastic Alaskan Halibut, then went up the coast to Moonstone Beach and wet our feet in the Pacific Ocean.

Say what you will about California but I'd go back in a heartbeat if I had the money.

Happy Birthday Doug!

Thank you friend.

Eureka is a beautiful place right where the redwoods meet the ocean. If someone can't appreciate something like that, I can only think they must be fit to be institutionalized. Who wouldn't want a drink by the bay in a nice little town at sunset?

Doug,
Your shrockets link no longer works, at least for me.
