    Nooooo! Sorry, California is full. We are at maximum capacity and if any more of you move here the fire marshal is going to shut us down. I'll tell ya what though, if anyone want's to take the governator you are welcome to him.

    Nothing to see here, move along... move along. This is not the weather you are looking for....

    If we get lucky and everyone else does move to Cali, maybe it will break off and sink into the Pacific.

    No because we're going to float... the rest of the country will sink. Why do you think we have so many air headed blondes out here. :p

    We got lucky when we were there. 11 straight days of sunshine. A little drizzle part of a day out on the Dingle Peninsula.

    The locals were getting all crazy because of the "lack of rain"..... :D

    Oh yeah! I can't wait to leave. We rented an apartment in Dublin for the first 7 days, then we're renting a car (With insurance, Narlus!) and driving around Ireland for the next 9, ending up back in Dublin the day before we leave. I am going to drink so much Guinness! And Narlus gave us some good suggestions we're going to check out in addition to hitting the museums for the medieval and viking exhibits. This will be my first trip overseas so I am pretty stoked. If I can find a job in 17 days I ain't coming back! :p

    Ditto. You keep Vietnam, Case, and Plattekill. I'll ride China Camp, Rockville, and [unnamed illegal trails] this winter.

    Plattekill, Diablo, SnowShow, Mt Snow, Killington, Rye Airfield, Down Town Boston, Reading Race, Nam... The list goes on. Of course, these places are only open when its not cold. :monkey;

    Its funny, i spent the whole summer in Idaho, and the summer was great. Then i came back here, and my god it was hot and humid. The east coast really does have some crappy weather.

    But the crappy weather makes you appreciate the good days so much more. I really didn't think that would be true until I spent a lot of time in Vermont. The first day of spring is a small miracle- people driving with their windows down, outside lounging around, riding without 3 shirts on...all in glorious 45 degree mud season weather. Helps you grow some hair on your chest.

    Oh, and I'm with you on the Idaho thing. I spent this summer working in VT and last summer working for the Forest Service in Idaho. In ID it was hotter temp-wise...but Vermont felt sooooo much worse.

    Going back to the point of this thread, though, what is this crappy weather you're talking about? Sure, it's wet and cool, but nothing is frozen or dying of heatstroke. If it can't kill you, I don't consider it that bad.

    Go Oregon, good weather, lots of trails, and not that many people. Like Cali, only better.

    You wouldn't like that....

    We use chickens and black candles out here in Cali. As you can see, it works. No reason to go wasting good virgins like that.
