Socal might be jarring if you are used to Wisconsin. Norcal is still hella clement

How you mean?

SoCal can get pretty warm

Some thoughts,

I moved from NJ to Orange County CA about 8 years ago, with nothing but a backpack full of clothes and a Job Offer. It was definitely no cake walk, but I do enjoy my decision to move here as working full time at a bike shop is difficult when there is only business for 7-9 months of the year. Additionally there are many BMX and MTB brands located here so I was able to get my foot in the door in an engineering position and get out of the bike shop.

Overall if you can get a job transfer, are good by yourself for some periods of time and are willing to work hard, you will be happy with your decision. However, I do miss the seasons as we only have temperatures between 65-95 here, so its really just a long spring/summer combo. There are no trees with leaves that change colors, no rain, sandy trails but TONS of nice concrete outdoor skateparks.

Now that I have been here for almost 10 years I want to move to colorado next. Life is an adventure, why live just one place?

True that.

I fucking hate people tat say that miss the seasons though. Fuck -30 degree weather and fuck snow in general.

Closing in on a location though. Culver City is looking real prime.

Dammit, I don't want to move to a hipster city. That just means it'll be a shit hole AND expensive. Point towards areas that are cheaper, not completely ghetto and within an hour to the coast. I don't care if the population is like 5k.
