  1. Relocation Suggestions

    sounds like bellingham is quite a place. i am headed to reno this weekend to check out a house that a friend of a friend of a friend has that is available on the NE side of lake tahoe in nevada. have only been through tahoe a couple times but i know there is lots of great climbing in the area and just down the road is some place called yosemite. if the house ends up being a bust, my next scouting trip will definetly be bellngham and surrounding area. thanks again for all the posts.
  2. Relocation Suggestions

    Thanks for all the replies So many places to choose from.. starting to make my head hurt (but in a good way). Another issue that came up is our company might be bought out and all the key employees would be signing long-term contracts. I was told yesterday, that if I intended to move, I better do it soon (before the end of the year) because it will be much harder to do once we are under new ownership. I got a call from an ex-stepsister (don't ask) and she said that Lake Tahoe, mostly on the Nevada side, is a great place to live. The last time I was through there was several years ago and I don't remember much but I would think the outdoor activities would be abudnant. Plus, there might actually be a girl or 2. (i remember the lonely winters in Jackson the last time I lived there ) I think one of the keys for me is going to be state income tax. Washington, Nevada, and Wyoming have none. Unfortunately, Oregon has one of the highest. Since I will probably be renting, a cheap house in Bend actualy ends up being more expensive than an expensive house in Jackson after you pay personal state income taxes. Oh well, looks like I will be spending the next few nights on the interenet. Thanks again for all the replies
  3. Relocation Suggestions

    i do software development and i have convinced my company that i can telecommute (hence the need for hi-speed internet) so fortunately i won't need to look for work. the jackson i used to live in was relatively cheap (pre-dotcom, pre-hollywood) and i went back last year and realized that it was hopelessly lost forever. the main thing i loved about jackson when i lived there was close proximity to everything, yet it wasn't glitzy or snooty like most of colorado had become. anyway, thanks for the replies. i will check out bend although for some reason i have this thing in my head that makes me think i would love sea kayaking so i might be leaning more towards the puget sound area. cheers.
  4. Relocation Suggestions

    After several years in the big-city grind, i am finally able to move back to the mountains. My first thought is to move back to Jackson WY., but real estate has gone crazy there. I have had several people mention Washington but I know very little about it. I would need to move to a city that has Hi-speed internet (for work). The smaller and closer to the mountains, the better. Any suggestions on a great place in Washington would be greatly appreciated. In addition to climbing, I am also into ww kayaking (would like to try my paddle at sea kayaking too). Thanks in advance.
