    North Carolina - Yes.
    Texas - HELL yes!
    IL - HELL no!
    UT - Yes.

    I actually liked Chattanooga when I visited there. But it was just for a day.

    London is amazing - where/whether I cld live there would depend entirely on the budget, but there are some great areas. Also depends slightly on your tolerance for rain, and mine is high.

    Spent a day in Fredericksburg a couple years back and actually tagged it mentally as a place I could consider living if I ever needed to locate permanently in NoVa.

    Interesting. Never thought of DC as having horrible weather. Winters are relatively mild - I assume you're referring to the humidity the rest of the year? Yeah, Ok that does suck.

    What did you not like about Vernal? It is a great place to live if you like the outdoors. Great fishing and hunting. Flaming Gorge is awesome.

    Indianapolis, IN-yeah, sure, why not
    S.H.A.P.E., Belgium-absolutely
    Spanish Fork , UT-no, bad memories.
    Provo, UT-maybe, overall it is a nice place.
    Tuscaloosa, AL-my favorite place of all time.
    San Diego, CA-not under any circumstances other than life and death.
    San Ramon, CA-I would choose San Diego first.
    Roswell, NM-I like it here a lot, except for the tea party element.

    I can't disagree with your comments in general, but the winters there are brutalm, it's too far from family and doesn't have any other redeeming qualities - outside the exceptional bird hunting - to make it worth it.

    Auburn, CA -
    Born, raised, went to high school, still go back to visit my parents, still the place I'd retire though I increasingly hate the fact that it's in a state controlled by idiot children. Perfect climate, beautiful rivers and rolling hills, 60 minutes from stunning Alpine mountains and ski slopes, only 2 hrs from SF, small town with history. Love it.

    Berkeley CA -
    Still one of my favorite places on earth.

    Szombathely, Hungary - would visit, wouldn't live.
    Budapest, Hungary - love it, would live there again though not permanently.
    Dunaujvaros, Hungary - formerly "Stalin City" would go back for the people and memories and leave quickly.
    Nyiregyhaza, Hungary - can't think of any reason I'd go back since the people I knew there have moved to Budapest.
    Szeged, Hungary - 8 months of my mish, love this city - young energetic university town, going to spend a Sunday there next Month.

    Provo, UT -
    Yes, under the right circumstances I could live there - like if I was leaving regularly. But even if it's easy to knock people for hanging in Provo, the natural setting is amazing and I wouldn't complain about year-round access to Cougar sports.

    Vienna, Austria - yes, with the right budget.
    Oxford, UK - yes, a thousand damn times yes. But again, budget would be key.
    London, UK - if I could live in the home of the family that I was house-sitting for rent-free in S. Kensington, with 4,000 square feet of marble floors about 300 meters from some of the best museums in the world - hells yes. I love London, but it's way too expensive unless you're getting a deal.

    Playa del Rey (Los Angeles) CA -
    Yes, one of the few pockets of LA I really love. I was a stone's throw from water and PdR is cut off from LA's sprawl and doesn't allow any chain stores in its charter. Feels like a small town.

    Wash DC - the Cleveland Park neighborhood where I lived is still one of my favorite places in the world. Also feels like a small town in the big city. In a jog's distance of both Georgetown and American, two subway stops from DuPont, a classic old theater, a post office, a library and some great restaurants.

    East Village, NYC - loved it, still love it, but too fratty for an old man like me at this point and impossible to be there with a family unless you've got big money.

    Long Island City, NYC - perched on the East River, one stop from Grand Central, great water front, cheaper than anything in Manhattan, faster commute to my Midtown meetings than when I was in the East Village, and I actually have a washer/drier. It's actually marginally possible to have a family here in L.I.C.

    San Francisco, CA - like so many other places, with the right budget yes. But way to freaking expensive unless you want to be South SF or elsewhere.

    Most of you have lived in much more diverse places than I.

    Rock Springs, WY -- no chance, too cold and windy. Truly, Logan and Rexburg have nothing on Rock Springs.
    Rexburg, ID - No
    Provo area - Maybe, but I hate the traffic.
    Logan, UT -- No, too cold
    Davis County -- I currently live here, and am pretty happy, but it's not an ideal place to live
    Mexico City (mission and internship) no way.

    But I'll admit that even when I say no way, I'd still move just about anywhere for a ton of money. Also, with enough money and a good neighborhood, lots of places would be nice.

    My wife's other sister lives in Grass Valley owning/running a horse ranch. Beautiful area; We don't visit as much as we should. She and her husband agree that the state is run by idiot children.

    I lived there during a winter, and it's the coldest place I've ever lived by a long shot. I would seriously wrap my head in a scarf so that only my eyes were visible.

    I've been there several times in the summer and it's unbearably sticky and hot.

    Outside of that, I love the place. And I love it enough that I would endure the weather.
