My girlfriend is about to enter her masters program. She'll have a masters degree in 2 years. We want to move out of Illinois. We are active peeps who need nice weather. We want mountains. We prefer to be on a body of water. Neither of us will be rich anytime soon given our line of work/education.
We've tossed a few idea's around.
2. The Bay Area
Some other notables that i would be ok with--though some aren't realistic
4. Socal (expensive)
5. Texas (too hot?)
6. North Carolina
We are unattached to anything but each other i suppose. We both have a secure full time job (i don't expect that to change during her stay in school).
Move me somewhere that is not here.
