    You know, that is a really tough question.:? My hubby and I are having tea (while I read QB) so we're actually discussing this.

    For us, we can't point exactly to a specific city or state, except to say that the further we get away from the Pacific Ocean the more uncomfortable we get. So, I would have to say: Inland (wherever that is) :)

    I definitely would not be happy moving to dry desert type areas, and likely the people who live in that type of climate wouldn't be happy in my area of tall forests where everything is green because it takes lots of rain to have it like this. We do have a LOT of fabric stores though, so I'm set! :D

    Never say never. I think as soon as you commit to NOT doing something, then Murphy is devising a law that will make you review your committment. I love where I am now and wouldn't really move away from here. I KNOW that states with big bugs are out for me.

    I could NEVER move back to the town that I grew up in! Japan, Missouri.
    Have you ever heard the song "Famous in a Small Town" by Miranda Lambert? That was the story of my life!

    Being a military family you kinda get use to the thought of moving anywhere they send you. I know when my husband got his first set of orders I was so heart broken! We were supposed to move to Baumholder, Germany but due to the fact I was 8 months pregnant with our middle son they canceled his orders! I cried!

    Growing up, my dad was in the Air Force and we moved a lot. The last place we landed was Oregon. At first I hated my parents for moving me here in, as I called it, the middle of nowhere. Now I don't think I would want to live anywhere else.

    We were in Arizona this summer and I really couldn't live there. Thought I was gonna melt. I love it here in the Pacific NW. Rain and all.

    I have a whole list.

    New Orleans - humid, below sea level, fear of being disliked by voodoo practitioners, unwilling to whip off my bra for beads.

    Washington, DC - I was afraid of terrorism before 9/11, also war, and figure it's still one of the most likely places for attacks. OTOH, I've been unemployed for so long now that if a job were to open up in DC, I'd probably go there.

    Texas - humid, snakes

    Florida - humid

    North Carolina - only if they paid me well

    Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx in NYC - crowded concrete jungles, polluted, expensive

    and the suburb where I grew up

    If places in other countries count, then I'd have to add:

    No countries that treat women as less than equals.

    No humid places, like much of Southeast Asia or the Brazilian rainforest.
