Born in SoCal. Loved being there in my teens and early 20's during the 1950's. All formal eduction in that State. Navy sent me to Florida in 1960 and the place sort of took hold of me. Transferred back to CA and the place was in the process of changing for the worse. From CA I went to Seattle on a promotion and hated the place. Drizzled all the time and the sun only came out in the middle of the work week. So, returned to Florida and never left however I had some great experiences in North NV while young and built a retirement home outside of Elko which we used for 15 years. Sold it last year since just getting too old to maintain two places. In Tallahassee we are only 4 miles from a regional med center, 1 mile from major shopping yet the house still seems out in the country where it was when we built it. Would not move for anything.
