I'd rather live in a single-wide trailer in the middle of Wyoming working on a job where I counted cow turds all day long than live in CA. Not only that, CA laws and regulations are infectious. Oregon and Washington are getting to be just as bad as the Californians migrate North.
Let's face it. We've been abandoned. It's only a matter of time that all firearms will be banned and NY will follow right after CA.
Well, I left Illinois for about the same reason that NorCalFocus left CA. But I will add the cold winters had little to do it.
It is hard for me to comprehend the utter disgust that those of you living in CA must feel for the intrusions into your lives. I live in SC and the only time I've traveled to CA was for a conference last spring to San Fran. I got to see an Occupy camp and at least 4 people urinating in public were "highlights" of the trip. Breakfast at the hotel for my wife and I ran over $80. Parking for the one night we rented a car ran over $100. The terrain was beautiful, but the overwhelming sense of liberalism made me want to get back to SC as soon as possible.
I'm sure that some would say that SC is backwards compared to CA, but at least we don't have to deal with the state telling us what guns we can or cannot have and how many bullets we can own. Since I have a CCP, I can purchase a pistol and walk of the store with it without having the store run a background check. I'm at a loss for having to wait 10 days to received a purchased firearm.

The down fall for Illinois is Cook County, and they seem to run the state. South of I-80 is working folks who has pride.
I really liked the Illinois countryside and the people when I was there decades ago. Lots of pheasants, cornfields, etc. I believe it was Decatur, and Morris.
Chiraq , didn't like it then and not a fan now.
Spent a year in SF at the Westin St Francis near Market Street and across from Union Square. Nice little cigar shop on Post or Sutton st.
Weird town. Beautiful terrain and great restaurants but weird. Liberal weird. I needed eye bleach to remove some of the scenery.

Thank god I live in the mountains of East TN. Granted we have lots of Meth heads but other than that its quite nice.
