I decided to see where www.findyourspot.com would direct me to live. Look out Carolyn — it aimed me in your direction:
Portland, Eugene, Albuquerque (am I already where I belong?), Las Vegas NV, Las Cruces, Little Rock, Corvallis, Medford (see, I told you!), Honolulu, Baltimore, San Bernardino (I’ll check it out during the Southern Cal Specialty), Baton Rouge (really?), Salem OR, Santa Barbara, Santa Cruz CA, Santa Fe, Alexandria LA, Reno, Ventura CA, Sacramento, Carson City, Shreveport-Bossier City, Bend OR, and Henderson. I think Nevada is too hot for me and the Louisiana locations are too humid. The other cities — well, it could be. I think the picks avoided the coast (except for Portland) because I wanted a college or university nearby.
