Good luck with that. They’re everywhere. And they’re not so bad.
I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

In the US I’d like to live in Sarasota. Close to the best beach in the country, beautiful weather (I love the heat) and decent cost of living. Downfall is “Florida Man” news stories. Lol.

Savannah, GA and Charleston, SC would be on the list. Maybe NOLA too. Either way strictly east coast for me, NOLA excluded. West coast is overrated.

Never been to Sarasota but I’m pretty sure that tops my list as well.

Charleston would be good too...expensive though.

Although just reading that Sarasota has a high crime rate, including violent crimes.

That’s surprising to me.

Me too. Didn’t realize that.

I like Maryland. I can nit pick, but it isn't terrible. When I see earthquakes (real ones) mudslides, wildfires, F5 tornados, hurricanes, I'm glad that's not a thing here.

Worst thing MD gets is a tropical storm threat maybe once a decade, hurricane every 50 years, a blizzard every 5 years, a tornado might touch down once for a second somewhere...

I am 100% jealous of So. Cal as a sports fan. Must be nice to have tickets to a game and never ever have to check the weather first. And pregaming can include watching east coast games. March madness ends at 9 or 10 instead of 1am.

But I like that MD has everything you need less than a day trip away. Ocean, bay, mountains, big cities, country.

The mid West is quaint and all. But when I visit my wife's family in STL that is it. Chicago is 4 hours, KC is 3, Memphis is 5 I think. When they come here we go to Philly for a day, no problem. DC for a day, no problem.

So I'd want to be here, or So. Cal I guess.

Florida and California are at the top of my list. I'm actually looking to relocate in the next year or so, and luckily as a Navy contractor both places are strong possibilities. Probably ends up between Panama City and San Diego. Leaning towards Panama City just due to affordability, and my parents will be retiring to the east coast of Florida (Melbourne Beach) in a few years.

Yeah I think MD is a solid place to live. Close to several big cities, water, mountains, several airports to travel. It’s an underrated place to live, geographically. And I really do love Frederick. Had a chance to buy a historic home there a few years ago, wish we had pulled the trigger on that sometimes, even though it would have cut into our disposable income.

Got married in Panama City Beach...I like it down there.

Panama City, which is a different town, has a lot of crime.

Yeah the Naval Base is in Panama City, but I'd rent a place in Panama City Beach. Once I'm ready to buy, I'd go somewhere else along the coast (Mexico Beach down past Tyndall AFB looks very appealing).

I should say that since I am licensed to practice law in this state I am "stuck" here unless I get a gov't job where you don't need to be licensed in that particular state.

Lawyers move all the time... is it really that big a PITA to get licensed elsewhere?   Are there any reciprocity arrangements among states?

Yes. Maryland doesn’t have any though — except with Washington State which now allows any licensed attorney to waive in by motion. Can also waive into DC

So... for any place else, you gotta take the test again, right?... how hard is that?  Would you have to do anything else?

Yes you’d have to take the exam. Depending on the state it’s very hard. Especially if you’re trying to study for it while working full time.

Are they pretty much the same from state to state?

 

How much of it have you forgotten?
