    Well, I just love cold and flies so...oh wait, no, I am not a fan of either. Also, I am not sure I could deal with the politics of the NE. Then again, my wife keeps bugging me to move to NY. Remind me why I married a communist, uh social democrat.

    I do like the SE and lived in the FL Panhandle (aka. South South Alabama) for a long time. I've been looking for work out that way, just so far nothing. Hmm...I need to check to see what is open at Ft Rucker.

    I don't really like the politics anywhere, I don't think I'd be happy in any particular environment in that respect. Well, I'll be sure to remember to ask you where to go if I ever make it to the Southwest. I've experienced dry heat once in my life (LA (as in Los Angeles, not to be confused with the state of Louisiana)) and I loved it, I am quite tired of humidity. At least it's not as bad up here as it is in the Southeastern/"Deep South" states.

    Yes, there's quite a difference in "whew, I'm hot" and "Holy crap I can't freakin' breath".

    I'd move to Maine in a minute. Even with black fly season. However, I am not yet independantly wealthy, and there are no jobs.

    On the other hand, I love the wide open spaces out here. I mean, move a little east of the mountains or up in Wyomingish area and 1,000 acres is a hobby farm. You can't get 1,000 acres in Maine unless you're willing to go into the North Woods. Tempting, but there are lots of trees there, already. Now reforesting Wyoming on the other hand . . .

    When I moved out here I would overhear people complaining about how humid it was. Huh? My sweat's still evaporating. That means it's not humid.

    mostly sunny, cloudy once in a while but that usually results in precipitation. politics are mostly great, except when it comes to women. otherwise, non-gender related politics are great.

    we honeymooned in northern NY during part of black fly season.

    Went to Portland ME last August for a wedding, and loved the place. Had always wanted to visit Maine. Wedding was on Peaks Island in Casco Bay, unbelievably beautiful. Portland has a real nice vibe, and everything is walkind distance. Can't go a block without tripping over a great place to eat or cool little pub.

    Best bet would be to live ~6 summer months in, say, Maine, and ~6 winter months in some Caribbean spot. Living off one's fabulous independent wealth, natch.

    Sounds perfect! Ok, except for the women thing. But they can pretty much kiss my patootie on that score.

    Hmm- I guess that just encourages staying indoors

    My baby brother lives in Portland. Um, that Portland. The one on the Right Coast. I had tossed around the idea (you know, when I become a fabulously wealthy author) of having a townhouse in Boston for a few weeks/a month here and there throughout the year and my ranch out here. However, an apartment in Portland wouldn't be a bad idea either . . . Casco Bay is gorgeous.
