Good to hear from you.
Absolutely!! My wife and I have wanted to leave CA for nearly
twenty years. I love the natural history and the restaurants. We hate
the crowds, the high taxes, the blatant stupidity. I will give you an
example: I live in the City of Davis. Due to the poor economy, Davis
has cut several law enforcement programs, and not hired several police
officers that were supposed to be added to the force. However, Davis
has decided that it needs to fill a newly created position, a position
that is full time, with full benefits. That position is City Poet.
Another example: the governor announced back in January that the
state was broke, and pleaded with the legislature to cut spending. On
camera the legislature agreed. Over the next months, the legislature
then passed millions of dollars worth of brand new mandatory programs.
My wife and I grew up in the country, and we want to get back to
that far less complicated existence.
