We moved to Illinois for a job. As soon as we were able to cross the Mississippi to the Iowa side, we did for the main reason of Illinois and their gun laws.
I'm on the fence on whether to continue working overseas and save up enough to move back out West or wait until retirement. Either way, it will be Utah, western Wyoming, western Montana, Idaho, Nevada, or northern Arizona come hell or high water.
And Al, those kind of temps are heaven to me!
