Haha, I love the replies, thanks guys!
Yes, it is because of a job. And that's the main factor, will I enjoy it, and what will the offer look like?
I'm likely to make a nice amount of $ and have no time to spend it
Cali sucked this past year too. I was envying the PNW from over here, I'm not sure they had it that much better, but you know, the grass is always greener. I will probably have a relatively easy time moving back to the bay in some # of years anyway.
I agree, traffic sucks wherever there's a city. Work would be downtown though, and if we can find a place nearby, I could walk/take the bus. To this day, I do not own a car (but then again, I have nothing to my name, so that's no feat).
Whistler/Blackcomb will be about as far as the Sierras are now, in driving time. And Tahoe traffic suckity-suck-sucks too.
