Postby jamesbond » Mon Jan 11, 2016 12:04 pm

I hate the cold. Even if the northern countries/states were any good, I still wouldn't live in them because of that.

I agree with everything this babe says, but must note that I lived in Madison, Wisconsin for five years and didn't come down with a single bug the entire time. Got sick only when I visited family in New Orleans.

Historically, the lower Mississippi delta regions were incubators of disease, and spurred the great southwest health migration. From a health standpoint, I'm a much bigger fan of the dry climate in the American West than the steamy humidity of the South. Florida's great in the winter, not so much the rest of the year.

Hey Jamesbond, great video!!! I agree with the points this young lady made. Especially about getting enough sunlight and being a great source of vitamin D!!!! Not to mention it brightens not only your day but your mood. I currently live in Fairbanks, Alaska and it is both very cold (it can get down to -20 to -50) and dark this time of year. However, Alaska has a very arid climate verses a "wet" type of cold. But, on the other hand, Alaska is nice in the summer time in which the sun stays up 12-20 hrs. a day. Plus, if your into hunting wild game, fishing, hiking, camping, kayaking, and any other outdoor activity Alaska is the a great state to be in. Personally, I'm looking to move back down to the "lower 48" soon possibly in Nevada. Then from there to save enough money to move out of the U.S.

With air conditioning, southern states are better to live in in terms of climate. Make sure your house is insulated, though. Southern houses typically aren't as well insulated and consume too much electricity in the winter months.

Alaska is probably unbeatable for hunting and fishing and outdoorsy stuff, aside from temperature and daylight hour issues, but there are plenty of opportunities for this stuff in the southeast, too. Southern cooking can be tasty and interesting, too. Them Yankees don't cook their green beans long enough. :) In the Southeast, there are cotton mouths and rattlesnakes. Leave the black snakes and king snakes alone. They eat the poisonous critters.

It's my impression that southerns tend to be a bit more warm and friendly than folks in certain other parts of the country.

I was originally thinking about relocating to Florida but I think the humidity and the bugs might be too much for me. I have visited Florida in the past and I need to do it again I think. I have been to Las Vegas and the heat during the summer time is just unbearable, other than that I do like Nevada and Vegas.

Phoenix was literally an oven when I visited it during August years ago but maybe I should check out some other cities in Arizona. I live in Illinois and it was below zero again last night. I absolutely cannot stand these winters here. It's not only cold and snowy but it's cloudy almost every day during the winter months and it's very depressing. :shock:
