Just remember every state/county has its own version of ghetto. With the Meth problem being so bad theres tweekers everywhere! Is your Ca POST accepted in Idaho? I was looking to lateral to El Dorado County, but its hard to just get up and go after 10 years with my dept, I've should've left before 5 years.Another interview in a week! Let's see how this one goes.... Your right, you only live once!
I was dating a girl from Boise when I was starting grad school, and she was a beauty, but her one condition for marriage was that I get a job in Boise.
I tried, but nobody there wanted to hire an out of state Californian. And she did not want to live anywhere else.
I guess everybody out West hates Californians. So you will need to deal with that.
Idaho is close to the heart of the Mormon Empire, so you better be able to deal with that as well.
There are lots of Catholics, Baptists and Jews there as everywhere, but they discretely keep that to themselves within the Empire.
Idaho is a hunters' paradise. Not quite as good as Alaska but better than anywhere else except Wyoming.
So 3rd place is not bad.
For me, the snow is too deep there. So is the Mormon B/S. I'm Catholic.
Oregon gets too much rain.
Washington State gets way too much rain.
Arizona is too hot and dry.
Lake Tahoe or Reno would be perfect for me.
