Seriously, I'm not trying to be a troll by asking such a broad/loaded question. I live in the mid-Atlantic and have had limited success trying to get contracts abroad so I can travel some while working. The amount of effort I have put into it vs. payoff is very skewed. So I though, hey, why don't I just travel around the US if I can. I work in I.T. as a business analyst and a technical writer. WHere I Live out in the southeast there have been fairly plentiful contracts (knock on wood).
But enough about that - HYPOTHETICALLY, let's say - if I were to relocate to the West coast for the sheer pleasure of traveling, where should I go? I would be there for 1-2 years. It is just me. I am 30. I work in I.T. I like mountains. That's it.
I know jack **** about California, Oregon, or Washington, which is why I want to go there. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
Obviously, cycling is a big consideration for me.
