    Good to hear. I'm not looking forward to a 30 hour drive but it comes with it.

      Yeah I'm currently in the process of looking but that's assuming I get hired which is no guarantee. I've got a few good places in mind. I would love to room with someone but I just can't do it with a stranger. I'm just gonna eat the money on that one. I've been out there several times and I think I know which areas are more favorable than others IMO. As far as the move, are you still there? How long did it take you to get used to life there? Do you still enjoy being there?

        Dude, that's the best part.

        Take your time, get off the interstate, take local highways and go through small towns. I would rather drive and take road trips than fly. I have seen more interesting sights, met great people and had the most fantastic food by driving. There have been times I've found myself in places so relaxing that I just parked the car and said to myself, "I don't want to leave. I don't know what I'd do if I stayed, but I don't want to leave."
        Going too far is half the pleasure of not getting anywhere

          As far as the sight seeing and enjoying the scenery goes, absolutely. It's just the stuck in the car part that gets boring. But hey, it's all part of it.

            Why are most people in CA so superficial and only care about looks, money, and status?
