    I'm happy just about anywhere as long as I have my G&Ls with me...

    Oh h•ll buddy, it don't matter where, as long as I wake up the next day. Now wait... that's being very narcissistic!

    Just generally speaking, folks in geographically interesting places have broader world views and more stories to tell and more "insight" per year on the planet. It isn't about tons of people; just that I like the person I am introducing myself to to have the means to carry on an engaging conversation. If you pick your geography right, society tends to take care of itself I think.

    I hear the part about No Income Tax but as for the others, what are you doing in Tennessee?

    (I'm writing this from Memphis, but I've seen those four in Chattanooga also.)

    Maximize distance from American Southeast (I did my time)
    Some ocean is nice
    Minimize distance from big city
    And to accommodate the hearing aid, minimize rain and extreme cold weather

    I have to say, of the Big Four, I much prefer Chattanooga. We have a good time in Memphis/Germantown; have had good times in Nashville and Knoxville but Chattanooga is closest to our Cabin in nearby Cherokee County, NC. I really love that little place called Puleo's in Ooltewah.

    Ahhh, seasons! I have to be able to have distinct changes in weather, temperature, etc.. It may just be the excuse I use to stay in the prairies in Canada, but I do love it here, and I do really like being able to experience the differences between the seasons. I may not like -40, but we don't have it a lot, really. Nor +40. It's a balance.

    I'd happily take anywhere between the west coast of Australia and the east coast of Australia if I can get my visa renewed.

    I've tried to be happy wherever I lived, even when I was homeless. I have my health, I'm grateful to have any roof over my head. I do like the country, though.

    Snow! Pine Trees. Excellent mountain roads for riding my bike. Light people presense or at least I can get there quickly. High speed Internet :)

    I asked myself this question as a teenager back around 1970 in the S.F. Bay Area.

    I need snow, good skiing snow, lots of good fly fishing and varied god hunting. Clean air, clean water, no traffic jams, no crime. A place to crank the amp and only the wildlife can complain.

    Yup, I found it. Even took the tax man 10 years to find me (thanks to satellite imagery:mad:). I just moved from the cabin to the not quite completed house. I'm putting in high windows on the north side just for Aurora Borealis viewing which is spectacular and often. The thing I didn't realize would be a requirement is the long, slow changing seasons. Total bonus.

    I gotta admit that I miss the salt water and surfing, but sometimes you just have to compromise.

    I grew up and went to college back east and have lived in all four time zones and have found things to like everywhere I've lived. But when it comes down to it, give me the west.
