Well I made the move to California in Sept. and am now in a house in Rosamond. I thought Ca. was a progressive state, but I could not have been more wrong. I have been waiting for a drivers license for almost three months, Buying a house was simply a nightmare, Groceries at the local Albertsons are priced way to high, Water is $100 a month, and it ain't rained since I got here Sept. 2nd. Other than that I like the place. Seriously, California is not as bad as some make out, but I think the red tape and hoops a home owner has to go through are excessive (exactly what did the escrow company do for me, except keep asking for more and more money up front to close the loan?). The worst thing about the move was that I left behind the BARCO 801s projector in my old house. At least all our other stuff got here damage free. One other note, if you are driving this way from Kansas, interstate 40 a boring drive, almost nothing to see from OKC all the way here.
