Let me introduce you to Sacramento, CA. You can buy a place for a reasonable amount of money. Wells Fargo has a very large presence here. We have the California Delta in our back door (home of two great boating events, Big Cat Poker Run and the Sacramento Bridge to Bridge Water Front Radar Runs and many smaller poker runs on an annual basis).

Two Pacific Offshore Races within 1 hours an an annual basis.

As for snowmobiling, I can be in Tahoe on the sleds within an hour from my house. The wife and I ride every weekend during the winter. In addition we return home to our heated pool and swim in the winter as well.

Obviously you have not been to Sacramento, nothing you stated holds true for north/central California (just stay out of the bay area). As for inland boating, you will not find a better place than the California Delta. Come on out, I will show you some of the coolest boating in the world.

One minute you are on glass cruising along, then you hit the Rio Vista channel with the wind blowing and you are getting 4+ feet out of the water. It is awesome.

Let me know if I can do anything else to help you.

Yeah but what about them DEMS Rick?!?!

It's New Jersey and/or FLA for me!

Just think after the big one hits and california either sinks or becomes a Island you can drive the boat to work.

I lived in Calif, both north and south since 1966, I now live in Florida and will never move. Does that give you any idea of how Ca is?
It was great in the 60's-70's and very early 80's. Since Gov Moonbeam its gone all the way down hill. But the weather is still great. Maybe the Arnold can start turning it around, but it will take another 30 years.
Just my .02
