I"m in the mountains in Virginia right now. This is where you want to be. Forget that west coast stuff.

Move east!

Not a bad deal really that Utah....nice and warm, good conservative values, Law 'n Order mentality and a veritable plethora of willing women to wait on you hand and foot.........I don't know why anyone would NOT want to live there myself......beautiful scenery, great riding....none of this miserable rain and cold 10 months out of the year.....Sounds like paradise to me...
It was snowing again two today ago.

....a minor inconvenience at best, think of the great Skiing and Boarding......an added incentive really!

Why just this morning as I paddled my Explorer to work through howling winds and lashing rain I was thinking "Boy, a little snow would be better than this! and just think how pretty it would be"

Yes! Virginia is where it's happening! Any place east of the Appalachians actually.

Too bad that the flood is going to head west when Calif legalizes marijuana this year. Your front lawn will be a tent city full of hippies.

I'm sorry, you don't have mountains in the East, you have foothills.......

Mountains are the really big things with snow on them that you need oxygen to breath when you climb them.

Better than thugs slangin' it illegally :P . And maybe they could use the tax money to fix everything else wrong in that state... though they will probably just use the money to make things worse :P .

And to the OP, I'd do it and just take it slow, as long as there aren't any obvious dangers present. Though, you should make sure you are fit enough to go that long on those roads. You will probably be exhausted!

BTW. No amount of money, even 100% of their economy, will enable the Calif govt to "fix" everything. Their problem is that they ARE trying to fix everything. If govts don't have enough money now then there will never ever be "enough" money.
