    These are some scary stories, thank you for sharing your thoughts. Glad you made it OK. I would not have risked my life to save the house as my family and charity are too big responsibilities to support.

    Now you know why I want to move to Florida, not to California. You can run from a Hurricane and if you have a condo, it usually is still there where you left it after a Hurricane but wild fires and earthquakes are a different story. Smiley

    I understand however why Watt wouldn't want his house to burn down and/or to be looted (is that a thing during wild fires? I guess so...), so it is understandable that he wants to stay and keep it from burning down but like you, I would have probably left, my kids (and I assume my wife as well Smiley) would be devastated without me.

    And you feel the style/atmosphere in California is remotely comparable with Florida? Smiley

    They only thing they have in common is that the sun shines...

    Exactly. Not only you cannot use the ocean on the west coast but we feel like LA has been polluted by the movie industry, as a caricature they are a shallow society where all people care about is how they look, who the had a glimpse of or who the know that is famous. Sadly it is anecdotal but we have many first hand experience that made us write off the entire west coast for a place to retire. Miami it is smiley

    Including the Bay Area? People are certainly less image focussed there, but the climate is not as good for sure.

    Many of our friends/acquaintances who moved to the US or plan to move to the US, usually choose Florida or California. Sunshine and warm weather is important for people, you'll get that when you get older (and a bit more respectful Smiley). Smiley 

    This is why I mentioned this, nothing to see here, move on. Smiley

    True but: Cold ocean, earthquakes, Tijuana in the vicinity (which can also be a plus, depends what you're looking for Smiley). I remember buying cigarettes made with chicken shit in Tijuana, surprised some of my smoking friends back in Germany. Believe it or not but they smoked this stuff, not even sure there was chicken shit inside them or worse. Smiley Smiley

    Christian,  this past summer the ocean temperature in San Diego was 79 degrees. I don’t recall the last time we had an earthquake. OTOH, hurricanes are a frequent and yearly event in Florida just as creature incidents are.

    That said, I rather like people choosing Florida over California/San Diego. We don’t need anymore people. kiss

    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA

    We almost moved to the Bay Area over a decade ago. Didn’t happen in the end but we started looking at homes in the Marin county. But then eventually even the person who participated in us moving there moved to Hawaii... Proximity to wine country and to SF was nice. But not fan of the weather. Much better than LA area or San Diego tough. Still, Miami has much more to offer as I can taste again this weekend with a group of 18 people at my house smiley It is 75f (24c) this morning and the pool is at 90f.

    One of the great things about California is that there are so many options within a days drive. Vegas is 4 hours away, along with options like Yosemite, Napa, Death Valley, numerous great golf courses (although Florida has these too), the PCH, skiing resorts, etc..But there are always pros and cons, I guess.


    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA

    No wildfires, but there are Hurricanes :):)

    You can easily avoid a Hurricane since you learn about it days before it hits your location.

    I would also never own a house in Florida, even if some houses are built pretty "tough" to withstand even stronger storms.
