    Not in a flood plain and not on a fault line. Other than that I'm very open minded as long as there's air to breathe.

    Mine are bout the same as yours, and so is my wife. She never directly says, but would like to live in the South. I can't abide the region as a place to live (no offense to anyone, really, it's more about the trees than anything else), so we live in the middle. Which is also where we lived when we met. So, inertia. Dang it.

    My second choice after the North is the northwest, but not so much coastal. Cascades.

    Thanks for reminding me. These early starts, so I've missed 100 runs and 2 wickets? :mad:

    Lets see, I like a place that is grey and damp in summer and cold grey and damp in winter, which is just as well.

    Roll on cricket season ...

    Mine would be tree's around my home, and neighbors close but not that close! I grew up in rural Missouri. Now, still in Missouri, lived in towns most of my life. Just want to go back home, to the family farm.

    I spent a lot of years on the west coast, where we had a bit of everything, climate-wise. If it was too hot in town, you could go up into the mountains and go sledding, or go to San Francisco or Monterey Bay where it's cool in the summer anyways. I liked the variety there!

    Damn nice in Fort Collins. If you have to live in a city, there's lots worse.

    Yeah, there's got to be plenty of Public Spaces; places to hike and ride bikes and paddle around in a boat.

    The #1 screwed up thing about Texas is, most folks have no realistic, easy access to places to recreate - no substantial public lands nearby. I'm quite confident in camping around Ft. Davis and in Guadalupe Mountains National Park, Lost Maples, etc., I've spent far more time outdoors in Texas than the average resident of that state today has.

    Once upon a time when there were fewer people there, and way more people you met were Texan born, and hospitality was plentiful, you could meet people and be friendly enough with them within hours and they'd invite you to camp on their land. Now, that land is a huge residential subdivision or shopping mall. There's just something fundamentally weird about a state about "wide open spaces" where most denizens there don't partake of anything to do with open space. Texas doesn't have any more hikers or overnight campers per capita than Rhode Island does, and that's simply a shame.

    I'm never satisfied in any one place:

    I loved the big city, NYC, because of the people and food, but it's unlivable in so many ways.

    I love South Florida, but I miss mountains, great food, and more invigorating AIR.

    I love the snow, beauty and frozen lakes I see in movies like Grumpy Old Men (Wisconsin?), but I don't think I could survive more than one winter.

    Adore the Pacific Northwest, but too $$$, cold and rainy at times.

    The grass is always greener, I guess.

    Southern Europe - alpine mountains, cliffs and beaches, karst landscapes, ancient rustic villages, wine and fresh bread. And a good coffee everywhere.

    Living within a circle around northern Italy, Western Austria, Switzerland, French alps and French southern coast, and all of Iberia would suit me. I need mountains and I need dramatic coasts but cities I would just visit.

    I did find New Zealand an almost perfect geographic microcosm when I toured there many years ago. Sail to tropical islands from the beach one day from Auckland and be alpine climbing Mount Cook the next with some Yellowstone like hot springs in between.

    Having only studied it's climate, Barcelona seems to be perfect for me weather wise.

    I could probably learn Spanish and teach English...

    Dang

    Time to move!

    I have less wanderlust than anyone I know. I've only lived in three states: northern California, southern California, and Oregon. I guess my criteria would include tall green trees, gentle climate, and good water supply. I've lived here on the southern Oregon coast for almost 40 years, and I enjoy very much that we can walk the dogs on the beach or through the woods a couple-three times a week. A stronger economy would have been nice I guess.
