Thanks for the great responses...LOTO does sound amazing, but let me narrow down my search a bit more....At least 6 months of boating, freshwater, at leadt 5 miles long.
My working field is online sales and marketing. I have been handling Kawasaki Motors e-commerce for 5 years (motorcycles, ATV's, utility vehicles and accessories).
My fiance and I have a pretty nice home, but it's soo expensive here in SoCal, we'd think about relocating somewhere a little more laidback, on a lake.
Any more ideas???
Thanks again!
Dave

I personaly like the mountain lakes ..water stays nice and clear .
Winter activities also rock ..snowmobiling skiing etc.. I think it makes you enjoy summer all the more ..For scenery youd have a hard time beating Tahoe ..But I dont think youl be out in the boat more than 3-4 months ..
Lotto looks amazing to me also if not a bit muddy / warm ..

Depends what's important to you- sounds like you can choose, I like Grand and LOTO for bigger water and more enterttainment. I live on Beaver and it's 32 miles from my house to the Dam but we lack the restaurants and watering holes on the lake.

I like to keep the idiots/sq mile ratio in check

Lake Murary SC. Near Columbia.
I have been here for about 20 years and like it very well.
Very low cost of living compared to what your used to.

Dave,

What exactly do you do for Kawasaki Motors? Web design, hosting, support?

Give me a better idea of what you do and are looking for and maybe I can help point you in a direction.

I work out of Dallas, Texas for a company named Data Return. We provide highly managed hosting for companies critical applications and e-commerce sites that can not go down. We provide a service license agreement at the custom code / application layer unlike other hosting providers.

Is Kawasaki Motors hosting their sites internally or outsourcing to a hosting provider?

I agree that LOTO fits your requirements to a T. And if you want laid back - some of us call it the SLOzarks instead of the Ozarks. But the expansion and new development is incredible.

Stick to the Ozarks or one of the bigger lakes because like they said....better schools, and just towns in general, plus you'll be able to get a good internet connection in that area also, some of the smaller lakes in Missouri....I doubt it!
