    Where you live...metaphorically and literally.

    I have been to Vancouver...stay there.

          It should be a big concern. The tsunami that hit Japan is mild compared what's expected to happen to Vancouver, and the Cascadian fault is over-due and only a matter of time.

            Actually nobody has predicted there would be a tsunami after an earthquake here in the North West. I live about 2 hours away from Vancouver in Washington. Yes there could be a very bad earthquake...there was a real good one here a few years ago, but no tsunami. Vancouver and Seattle are all pretty inland and yes a tsunami could come through the Puget sound for instance, but it wouldn't be near as damaging as a tsunami hitting Japan head on.

              This is inaccurate...Here's a google:
              cascadia subduction zone tsunami - Google Search

              And Puget Sound will likely make the problem worse. When the tsunami hits the Sound, the water will be channeled into a smaller area, causing the water levels to rise.

              It isn't theory, as it's happened in the past. It's just the native population was small at the time and their cultural history isn't well recorded.

      I started the thread mainly out of interest to what people will say. That said, I like where I live, but I am seriously concerned about it being a major potential earthquake zone in the vicinity of tectonic plates.

    Well, I would vote the area of San Diego...
    New Zealand & Australia are also on my hit-list.

    I've been to many places, few have REALLY left their mark on me.

    I enjoyed parts of Europe as well - England/ scot,wales....

    I would also want to live in South Africa for a while.

    Asia never really appealed to me, nor the far east region of it...

    TB - just move inland a ways. Get off the subduction line and into mountain cover - but don't park under a rock ledge. It's going to rattle for a ways and awhile when the zone blows, so even after the move, don't move near stuff that can fall on your house

        The most earthquake safe place in the word is Oklahoma, because it has so many earthquakes.

        Oklahoma has more earthquakes than any other place on earth.

        But they are all so small you don't even feel them. That is why you never get one big enough to do damage.

        If you are worried about earthquakes move to Oklahoma. Also it is very far from the ocean. So no Tsunamis either.

        I haven't used the site in a long time, I had to search for it for you because I no longer had it bookmarked and couldn't remember the name of it. It was a pretty cool tool when I did use it. Found some neat little towns I'd never heard of that had everything I wanted there or nearby. I may use it again to find my ideal retirement town in a few years.

        Go back later and try it, I think you'll find it interesting.

          Not even sure of where you live, Dennis. I was just referring to some of the places that get listed that I've been to and left because I hated the quality of life. Personal preferences - you understand.

          No thank you. Don't want tornadoes, earthquakes, or psychos. Where would that be?
          Might have been able to accommodate your request if you hadn't added that last little particular. Frankly, I don't know of anywhere that's not inhabited by humans any more. Have you checked out commercial concerns that might take you to another planet?

            OK, scratch that. How about without tornadoes, and low-risk for earthquakes? Preferably not located at a nuclear waste dump.

        I used that site and it recommended Telluride and Leadville, CO as my two top picks.

        Others that piqued my interest are New York Mills, MN; Peterborough, NH; Leavenworth, WA; and Littleton, NH (actually stayed there once).

        Obviously it's a faulty site as it didn't recommend a single town in the beautiful state of Wisconsin. Weird!

            That's so funny. A lot of people from Wisconsin call Illinoisans 'flatlanders', but we definitely pale in comparison to any of the Rocky Mountain states. I believe our highest point is about 1,500 feet.

            I didn't know that about Leadville; interesting.

          Little Bavarian village up in the mountains.

          I go there every yr for the Christmas Lighting festival and am considering moving there myself

          I have talked to several Seattleites over there who moved and love it

          One guy who works in the beer garden says he came over 5 yrs ago and haven't left

          The rain in Seattle first half of the yr drives me nuts...so Leavenworth...or Thailand for me

    Well, my wife and I have been living in France for nearly ten years (previously UK) and love it. Warm, but not hot....no earthquakes....restaurants with good food and prices (not good prices in Paris!)....the best wine....I could go on. We are currently in the Mayenne but want to go back to Manche, Lower Normandy; but that's just a personal thing. All of France is great, in our opinion, at least.

    I think it really just depends on your daily needs. You can be in paradise and you probably won't even know it if you're miserable there. If you want a piece of mind go to the country side. If you enjoy the city life style there are so many places to go to. But I suggest to go to a place where you've never been before and see if you like it.

    Although I've recently become a "snow bird" - where I leave the North Country of New Hampshire for the bitter winters, I really DO enjoy LIVING in New Hampshire.

    Here's why:
    - NO state income tax.
    - NO sales tax (although we do have property tax, and meals/rooms taxes).

    But what's good about the no sales tax, is that on some of my commercial websites where I ship all over the country, I don't have to collect much in taxes.

    Also, summer and autumn are beautiful. Not much in the way of tornadoes/hurricanes (we get a little... but not like other places).

    Snow can be heavy, but hey... that's what the Caribbean is for.

    My favorite area in New Hampshire is the Mount Washington Valley -the North Conway area - lots to do, great hiking, biking, climbing, skiing (if you're into that), and other activities. (We'll actually be moving there as soon as we sell our mountain house... anyone want a classic mountain home??? anyone???)

    When I moved to Empire, CO - 8,700 ft- I could barely walk the dog a block - I'd drag around it and then go home and lay down. I finally called a natureopath and told him what was going on (I had another illness at the time and thought I was dying depsite the control I'd taken of it).

    He just asked "how long did you say you've lived up here?" I said "two weeks" -- he said "give it another month - it's just altitude." Being from Michigan, that's the first I really realized about real altitude. The second thing was knowing I'd be putting a winter jacket on at dark even if it was 90 degrees that day.

    I've been to Leadville and Telluride and fully agree they are awesome in the extreme -- once you get used to the altitude. If moving out from a sea-level state it's a good idea to spend a month or two at the foot of the mountains before you move up. It actually takes awhile just to adjust to Denver or Ft Collins. If you go straight up to Leadville, you're gonna be sick about it.

      I was born and raised in Boulder/Denver (5200 ft+) and I still struggle up here at about 8300 ft.

      Here's some examples of the effects of altitude (not including altitude sickness):

      Because the air is so thin, water boils at a much lower temp. It takes a good 10-11 minutes to boil an egg, and the yoke is still a little soft. It took me 4 hours to boil an artichoke.

      I bought some protein shake powder yesterday in Town and then brought it back up to 8300 feet. It's bulging. When you open any plastic container that's vacuum sealed, the container is bulging and will explode when you tear open the seal. You need to be careful or you'll have powder every where.

      10,000 ft is above "timber line", which means there too little air for trees to breath, so there's no trees.

      Great for drunks, winos and misc. alcoholics...Because Blood Alcohol Content measures a ration of alcohol to oxygen in your blood stream, your BAC is much higher at altitude because you have less oxygen in your blood. You haven't had an alcohol buzz until you've drank at altitude.

    Only going to argue one point there, Kurt - Timberline out there, and a few other places (like Empire) is 11,000 - 12,000 feet. By 11,000 they are thinning and are almost non-existent by 11,500 and by 12,00 they are gone. There's actually some pretty nice forestry around the town in Leadville.

    Why not just stay in Canada, but move further inland? That way, you've no immigration or cultural issues, and you'll be pretty safe (I think anywhere in the interior of Canada is seismically stable...and safe from tsunamis off any size too).

      My question to you is:
      WHY do you want to move? Is it because you want different experiences? Do you want a great place to retire? Do you want to have tons of fun? Are you single? Married? Kids?

      My list would go like this:

      1. If your single nothing compares to Medellin Columbia. The Paisa's are amazing people and the women magnificent. A condo that runs 400K here goes for about 160k your taxes instead of being 6k to 12k (depending on where you live) are about $400 to $800 a year. The weather is great and the nightlife of Parque Lleras is some of the best in Colombia.

      2. If your wanting big city that's spread out and diverse with amazing culture, very old world feel and modern conveniences then may I suggest Montevideo Uruguay. It's about as expensive as the states but has no natural disaster potential, no nuke plants and it's government could not begin to finance totalitarianism, there revenues would not support it.

      3. If you're into retirement and slower pace then Cuenca Ecuador would be a great ticket. Very reasonably priced, wonderful people, great expat community and small. It's only got about 450,000 people. So, not much nightlife but a relaxed life.
      This would be great for wife/kids type of life.


      It really depends on your real motivation for wanting to relocate?
      But those are some Ideas!

      Ah...TB is happy........he just doesn't like living on the Cascadia Subduction zone when it's slated to blow any time now. Having a mag 9 quake go off right under your feet doesn't do ya much good no matter how well you know yourself.

    Well in some places you can get a five bedroom water front property for $300,000 and in other places, that same peice of property could cost you 6 million.

    Take your pick.

      I am looking at the south of France possibly. Have only heard "bad stuff" and super high prices in Paris (tons of rats, unemployment, ethnic and religious intolerance).

      I have been traveling about a year now, it's true, wherever there is an Internet connection you are good to go ..

      My next place to check out where I wanna puts some roots down is the Island of Malta.

      Kinda small BUT.. English heavy country, strong dollar, lots of affordable property, great schools.

      After that believe it or not (Google it) I am going to look into living in Lichtenstein. GREAT economy. A wee bit north for me but it's double land-locked so maybe the weather is milder I dunno ..

      Never continue in a job you don't enjoy. If you're happy in what you're doing, you'll like yourself, you'll have inner peace. And if you have that, along with physical health, you will have had more success than you could possibly have imagined. Johnny Carson
