90% of forum members live in the east. Why is that? There must be a reason.
You started this out of the Adirondacks, it's call NYSkiblog, what did you expect.
Anyway - I live here because my job is here, I moved here from Virginia, I think that was a step up (except for taxes, but that's a whole different topic). My wife won't move too far from the kids but I am hoping for a winter venue change after retirement, SLC is looking quite nice.
