We love the beauty Calif. has to offer, but it is getting so expensive. Montana is beautiful as well, and more of a laid back attitude there.

I keep trying to emigrate, but always end up coming home to California. I like it here.

Thanks for responding, everyone. These accounts are of great interest to me, as I contemplate moving with my husband to Illinois.
Single_Sr- like you said, I do think I am mid- life-ing. I'm 49, hate my job, and have never lived outside CA. It could be an adventure, but not if i'm feeling guilty about "leaving behind my family". We shall see.

MID-LIFE CRISIS . . . I MOVED TO BOISE IDAHO. KNEW NO ONE. HAD NO JOB.
WAS ONLY THERE 6 MONTH WHEN I HAD MY SON COME GET ME AND BRING ME HOME (SO. CAL.)

I WAS 50 (MID-LIFE) ... THAT WAS 17 YEARS AGO. SOOOOO HAPPY 2 BE BACK HOME.
I WISH I HAD SAVED MY MONEY, TIME, EFFORT AND SANITY. :-)

I THINK IT IS ALWAYS HARDER TO DO SOMETHING SO DRASTIC ALONE...BUT I WAS BRAVE. (STUPID) LOOKING 4 A BETTER LIFE . . . DIDNT HAPPEN.

MY SON AND FAMILY WERE GOING TO MOVE THERE ALSO, BUT I HELPED THEM STAY IN CALIFORNIA. THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE FAMILY

I REMEMBER THE LAST CALL I GOT B4 I PACKED UP MY PHONE....FROM A STATE JOB I WANTED. O WELL. GOING BACK TO CALI - GOOD THING 4 ME

BUT THATS JUST ME.

GOOD LUCK 2 U. IF U HAVE SUPPORT/FAMILY IT CAN B GOOD. SOMETIMES A CHALLENGE, BUT KEEP YOUR SPIRIT UP.

My family moved to Puerto Rico when my Father retired early, we had been living in the San Fernando Valley for over 25 years at that time. We were not happy with the schools so a move was a good thing for us. After PR we moved to Minnesota, one of my brothers stayed in CA until he died of cancer and my Aunt and her family are all still living there. I think of southern CA when I think of living there, but I know that northern CA is very different.

Wow! Other than Idaho, your "migration path" intersects mine 9my family's) a lot!

I was born in San Jose, and my parents moved us to Redding, for same reason (crime).
My mom was born in Santa Rosa, and my parents were married there. My daughters now go to Sonoma State, in Rohnert Park

My brother married years ago, and moved to Seattle, where he now lives with his wife and 2 girls.

My mother and dad want to move someplace on the northern CA coast..... crescent city, maybe, they've said! My mom is retired, and while my dad still works 3 days a week at 77, he is ready to hang it up.

I'm nervous about moving out of state. It will be an adventure, but there is a lot I will miss about CA!

My husband and I moved to Idaho, where he is from when our children were small. We wanted to raise them in a safer place. We were in San Jose at the time and the crime was off the charts.
After Idaho, kids out of high school we move back to Santa Rosa.
When my daughter married she went to Seattle so we followed her there.
Now we are in Crescent City to retire and will stay here from now on.
I am from many generations of Californians and this will always be home.

Or have you made that move already?

Your thoughts on living in California, in our current hard economic times....


Me: Considering moving to ILLINOIS with my husband, for a variety of reasons.
Has anyone taken this plunge? How old were you, and what were the reasons.

If NO, NEVER, what keeps you rooted in the Golden State?
