    How possible do you think it would be to pick up and just move? I want to move to another state.

    Rent a uhaul. Load it and go. That is what I want do.

    Thoughts?

    Depends how much stuff you have.

    I tried to move to Rocklin, ca but no job. So then I tried Seattle. Still no job.

    Still here in co with a decent job market. About to move to tx with a job offer. My cost to move to Seattle with a 6x12 uhaul trailer, two trucks, a car and deposit and 2 months rent on a 1,300 mile move came out to about $3,200.

    Tx is the same distance, however we are renting a home. So our est cost is roughly $4,100.

    Anything possible with money.

    Isn't that the truth. I need to raise some money. I have just a one bedroom very tiny duplex. Not much stuff at all.

    But I would have to tow the car behind the uhaul, right? I wonder if I could drive that....

    Could row a boat to Australia come live with the kangaroos , koalas and crazy Aussies. As Oprah said every one should visit.

    It all depends on what your motivation is that will determine if it is a good move or not. Are you wanting to leave to get away from something or someone? Are you wanting to leave to be with someone? What will happen if you move and your life ends up being exactly the same as it is now and the only difference is your location? Of course we don't need to know the answers, but you do!

    Back in my mid 20's, I did exactly what you are wanting to do. I moved from the Midwest to Los Angeles to pursue my dream. Funny thing was that right before I closed my last suitcase, all of the issues and problems I thought I was leaving behind jumped into my suitcase!

    The bottom line was that I was who I was and it did not matter where I happened to live at the time. Geography does not solve problems. I have been there!

    I have lived in six states and five countries. If you are trying to be someone else, you can be a better or a worse person where you wind up.. If you are looking for the pot of gold, so are a lot of others. If you are looking for adventure, romance, or a challenge, do a lot of soul searching. I would never tell anyone not to flex their wings, but always remember that it is harder to find work in a new community. Unless you have a good job offer, and good adaptation skills, it can be stressful. It also can be rewarding.

    Not too hijack but I may as well toss in my reasoning for wanting this as well.

    1.) My so called "friends" just piss me off whenever they get the chance.
    2.) I am stuck at a dead end job in retail that is stressing me out more and more each day
    3.) I have no companion......except my cat. I have no luck with the ladies it seems. LOL!!!
    4.) there is nothing here for me anymore. None of my family lives here anymore.


    Basically I am getting more and more miserable each and every day and with no means to do this is not helping me out any. Looking into other options.

    Marie I am in my 30's.

    No. I am not wanting to leave for someone. Not sure where I am going, yet, actually. Atlanta Georgia, Salem Oregon, are two options, where I have friends.

    I am not running from anything, Scott, so no problems will follow. Could be new ones though ~ like work, and I have two great jobs here.

    I am just tired of here. I am in a rut, and I seem to live for everyone else, be there for everyone else.

    I must have read your post 5 times so far. Seriously. And I will probably read it 100 more.

    Thank You.

    But ~

    I know who I am. And I like me and am good with that. So I know I can do this. Wanting to be someone else is not an option ~ but being me somewhere else could be everything.




    Number 4 works for me. Except my daughter. She was the reason I didn't do this five years ago. I was actually going to move to Canada!

    But she wouldn't go and I couldn't leave her. But now she is 23, almost of out college, kinda, and needs to be on her own.

    I have decided if I do this, I can't leave with a minimum of 10K.

    So ~

    I need a plan.
