Californians

Article today said most dislike Californians, that they move into your State, buy a huge house that raises prices and then they try to change everything.

For real? More people left this year than moved in for the first year in a long time.

I figure that the PRK is a lost cause. I don't care who moves in or out, by and large the people who live there are apathetic losers.

I presume there are a couple or more notable exceptions to that?

I was raised in Ca. (Humboldt county) and couldn't wait to move out. Joined the Navy and 20 years later I retired to Idaho (Boise). I had to leave and my justification was I needed to move back to the country, there was just to much city in Boise.
I HATE Ca's political scene but I sure love the country. How many of you look out your backdoor and see 200" redwoods 30 Yards away?

When was the last time you were in the UP and the Keweenaw Peninsula? I prefer beautiful Lake Superior over the Pacific Ocean. And I just love the Michigan climate and weather. California weather blows.

2 and a half years ago. In addition to the beautiful mountains, what I like about the bay is that it doesn't snow, and the temperature is fairly consistent year round.

You guys really are sick in the head. I live in Cali, it has great mountain biking, and you just gotta ignore the "it's all about me idiots" which is about half of the population. Once you get used to the people, it's a great place. Good waves, too.

I will also admit that Californians are "by and large" buttholes, but I can't help but love it. Cali born and raised.....
