    Well I'll still claim West US pride!! Although I recently moved to Texas, I grew up in Colorado and I've also lived in Utah, Idaho and California. That's gotta count for something. ;-)

    Wow Allison! You've lived in more states than I've been to! j/k :)

    I've only lived in four cities my whole life. All in CA. And all within 200 miles of each other. Can someone say.... BORING!

    I have been in SoCal since 1996 and the world begins and ends there to me. I don't need to brad about how great SoCal is when we all know that's all there is!

    What about north of the border? :) and officially I've only lived in two places. Hometown, got transfered for one year and back here. Spent one month in Winnipeg after grad with X and 2 months in Vancouver when twins were born 3m early but count those as extended vacations.

    And yes the West rules! Doing the Oregon Coast this summer for vacation.

    Krystal- you just know where the happenin' place is! ;) I've pretty much stayed in Southern California...I wouldn't mind moving somewhere else in the west, but I haven't found a good enough reason to! Good, predictable weather, family is close by, why leave?

    LOL!

    My hubby and I grew up in SoCal. We've been in CenCal since 1993. We moved the day we got back from our honeymoon. We miss the weather and the beaches, not the traffic and the mass amount of people. It hard for an old surfer (hubby) to be 200 miles away from the waves!

    My fiance wants to move to NorCal, but his sailing friends will never let him stray too far from Ventura County! (works for me, I love it here!)

    I've been in SoCal since 1986. Before that I was born in Florida, then lived in Iowa, Utah, Colorado, Texas, California for a couple years, then Colorado again, then Arizona and back to California. I've also traveled all over the world, and must say I don't really want to live anyplace else. If I could afford to summer someplace, I'd choose Brisbane, Australia. I even know a stamper there! But California is home (even though it's a bit messed up - so long Arnold).

    Small World Samantha... I moved from Oxnard Shores 31 years ago... my brother and his son still lives there... Hubby and I used to fish out of Channel Islands harbor over to Santa Cruz Island... I love the area, but on visiting some years ago... Parents lived in Camarillo, saw how much it grew... I worked up in Ojai and was amazed how much that had grown also....

    Great to see some West Coast Gals here....

    I know this is an old post... but when are you going on vacation??? I live on the Oregon Coast down in Bandon... It's a small friendly town... been here 31 years.... moved up from Oxnard, Cali... so except for the rain... the weather is mild like the Oxnard area beaches... Grew up in North Hollywood.... spent most of my time at the beaches following my brothers and their friends around... spent alot of time at Santa Monica, Zuma, Rincon, Paradise Cove.. but I love it here in Oregon on the coast... I have the beach on one side and the forest on the other.... best of both worlds for me....

    West Coast Gal forever....
    Faith

    I'm a western girl!!! I've lived in five different states, all west of the Mississippi. Born in Kansas. Moved to Helena, Montana when I was 2. Moved to Martinez, California (SF (east) Bay Area) when I was 8. Moved to Rexburg, Idaho when I was 18 for college. Moved to Utah when I was 20 to finish college and I never left. I've lived in all over northern Utah too, but we've settled for good (I think?) in Farmington which is half way between Salt Lake and Ogden.
