    How beautiful was it, Daillest?

    Was it business or pleasure?

    I live in the Boise (Boy-cee not Boy-Z) area and I love it. It's a pretty medium sized city and it is growing like a wild fire out here. Somebody from California visited here in the late 80s/early 90s, realized the amazing quality of life out here, and then ran back and told all his buddies. They have been coming up in droves ever since. Boise has all the big city amenities without the big city hassles. While traffic is getting worse, it's nothing compared to bigger metro areas. Crime is super low. People are friendly. Downtown is as vibrant as any city I've visited. There is A TON of outdoor activities to do. Oh, and the Rocky Mountains are in your back yard. Idaho has a little bit of everything. Boise is built in a high desert, so summers can be surprinsingly hot, but just outside of town you can be in forest covered mountains and on the lake. Winters are TOO bad. Oh, and do I even need to mention how crazy this city is about their Boise State Broncos? haha

    In fact, here are some pics of my trip to McCall, Idaho last weekend (just 96 miles north of Boise). Just to give you an idea.

    And the Boise skyline. Not much but growing and vibrant!

    I have also lived in Seattle. Gorgeous city it's just super expensive and the traffic is BRUTAL!!!
    Spent some time in Detroit, Mi too. While it is a economical depressed city, it's actually situated in a nice geographical setting. It's just a decaying city in it's core.

    My ultimate goal is to head West to Portland and eventually settle on the Oregon Coast. So damn beautiful there.

    Near any skiing/snowboarding, Sarge? I'm trying to determine if the mod party you host is going to be in the winter or summer :D

    Of course, both would work too! :)

    I love visiting California and New York, but not sure I would enjoy living there year round. Could always move to Oregon and travel to CA :D

    I assume you are retired, since you are just up an moving and aren't mentioning work as a consideration. If so, stay away from the DC area (I'm in a MD suburb) where I live. Good for jobs, but the cost of living is higher than most areas. And it stinks of Redskins fans.

    No, not retired, but my work allows me to move where I want.

    I have no desire to live in or right next to large cities, but would like to live somewhat within driving distance of one.

    These are absolutely beautiful, spent a summer around the Sangre De Cristo Mountain Range in southern Colorado and some of these vistas look quite similar.
