About half-way in between. The job is in Santa Maria. I figure we will rent for a year and then decide where to buy from there. The good news is that real estate values are not rebounding out there yet, and the realtors we've spoken with don't expect prices to start climbing for at least another year, maybe longer. Right now, the cost of living is pretty comparable to Pittsburgh in a lot of ways.

The PCH runs around Santa Maria to the west, highway 101 runs right through the middle of town.

Congrats BBF. Get ready for 4:00pm hockey games and 10:00am Stiller games.

Good luck although you won't need it. And it's not like you are leaving your "neighbors" here. :D

BBF, at some point you should consider finding time for a day trip down to Solvang (and take your camera along). IIRC, it's less than an hour's drive from where you'll be working. While there, treat yourselves to aebleskivers from one of the walk-up windows.

If you're still there at dinnertime, check out the Alisal golf resort and ranch.

I predict you won't be disappointed.

Congratulations-- sure must be hard to make such a decision but with your backround and interests it looks like the choice was easier. Best of luck-- keep posting!

Good luck, sir!

I like California a lot.. more vegetarian restaurants, goldfish ponds, and lots of Asian women. :)

Just saw this BBF. Congrats, Dude (just trying to get you into Cali-speak mode! :D ).

My brother does just that type of work for PSU at Hershey. He loves it and it seems a very satisfying career. Congrats again.

Send us some of the "fresh" wine will ya.
