    Hi. Sacramento, CA, probably isn't on your list but it has a lot to offer.

    Land space - Lots of rural space around the city. Short drive to many small communities.
    Greenery - "City of Trees"
    Decent climate - Hot in the summer, but dry heat. Otherwise excellent.
    Affordability and simple living - Not super cheap but not too bad.
    Quiet - You can find it in the rural areas.
    Food and water choices - Huge variety of local organic food. Many farm to table restaurants. Two big natural foods co-ops. The Sacramento one has a large selection of meat and fish. Two Whole Foods. Several Trader Joe's. Many other naturally oriented stores. Farmer's markets all over the place.
    Outdoor sports - Easy drive to the Sierras and the coast. Long bike trail.
    Ancestral Health Info - My blog about Primal and the general ancestral health movement. Site just remodeled using HTML5/CSS3 instead of Wordpress.

    Definitely not Vegas.

    Land space - okay, that we do have, just don't expect to live or grow anything on it.

    Greenery - pretty much all we have is Brownery. And maybe a little grey-ery.

    Decent climate - Satan comes here during the summer when Hell just isn't hot enough.

    Affordability and simple living - maybe a little cheaper than L.A., but all about the cash and silicone.

    Quiet - um... yeah. The Strip is really loud (and obnoxious), but in the outskirts, there's enough solitude to bury a body with no worries. Ask the Mob how that works. Wait. Maybe that's not such a good idea.

    Food and water choices - we actually do have some amazing chefs, though you're not going to find anything Primal, and it's all pretty expensive if you want the good stuff.

    Outdoor sports - Oh! We have that! Hiking, fishing, boating, skiing - but only for about 3 months out of the year. After that, it's just too damn hot to be outside at all. I guess we do have an indoor rock climbing wall...

    Can you tell I'm not a fan? I always wanted somewhere out in the middle of nowhere with a ton of green and maybe some water. That's definitely not Vegas. Damn ex-husband!

    All the pathos and irony of leaving one’s youth behind is thus implicit in every joyous moment of travel: one knows that the first joy can never be recovered, and the wise traveler learns not to repeat successes but tries new places all the time

    Sounds like you're looking for West Virginia. I'd love love love to stay there, but for now I can only visit.

    Texas is not bad, specifically the DFW area.

    There is no state income tax, cost of living is relatively cheap (housing prices are moderate to low)
    The economy is strong (lots of jobs).
    It is really hot 2 1/2 months a year. The rest of the year is nice.
    There are lots of lakes and outdoors type things to do.
    You can live 25 miles from Dallas and feel like you are out in the country (quiet)
    We are Texans, we have every type of meat possible with Nolan Ryan himself smiling and selling you ribeyes.
    There are many farmers markets around
    The people are in general very friendly and helpful
    The woman are hot (all varieties)

    All in all there are prettier places to live in the world but if having an income is a consideration then it is hard to beat.
    Did I mention the woman (especially the Latinas in my opinion) are really hot?

    Went Primal January 24, 2011
    Lost 105 pounds in 5 months
    Currently 130 fat pounds down which is 120 pounds on the scale while putting on 10 pounds of muscle
    According to my kids I am looking more and more like the Hulk every day

    I'd be interesting to read more responses. I am also looking to move elsewhere. I'm thinking about buying or leasing a car and taking a very long Primal road-trip that will last a year at least. Live for a week or 2, maybe a month in various cities across the US and even into Canada and maybe Mexico.

    I'd love for folks to join me on the way. I plan on doing some WWOOFing too.

    I'm still walking across America. Just not sure when.
