Sir, I agree with you completely - FL is terrible. (I see you live in Orlando, my sympathies - I'm 45 minutes east of you.) Hot, humid, buggy, full of old people who vote for themselves and can afford it, jobs only in service industries and hospitals, boring as hell, no culture. I moved to Montana to get away from it ... at least where we lived in Montana, we were able to get public health, public mental health, and assistance without a thousand pieces of red tape, mininum waiting times, and employees who gave a shit and treated us like humans instead of 'the undeserving poor'. Montana's job situation sucked (unless you worked for GSK or Rocky Mountain Lab) big time and the pay was near non-existent, but you got treated like a human being. I was simply not a 'small town' type of person, despite how cozy it was.
Menonites are pretty cool people, Sir, they lived around the same area we were in MT - certainly more open-minded than the other Christians around there. You might still go to Canada yet!
I thought about moving back to my childhood town of Kansas City (MO side) - pluses would be all the cultural and historical stuff and seeing everything through an adult's eyes (beer, blues, and barbecue!) but my father's only complaint was that the state, county, city, etc taxes ate up to 60% of his paycheck. (Right to work tax, residency tax, travel tax, home owners tax, work tax - no, I'm not kidding, KC is proud to bear the title of 'Fat Cat Brother-in-Law Government'.) Seems almost worth having the mafia back in and running the place, at least you got better insurance rates.
I'm heading up to Boston in a few years. My best friend lives there; she was originally a KC girl who met her husband at college, visited his family in MA, and she never left (her kids are my age). It has it's share of crap, but it's crap I can deal with (crazyass drivers, etc). Oceans, mountains, big city, old towns, history, culture, creativity, seafood, seasons, public trans ... Perfect for me.
Besides, after 10+ years of visiting the place, I already have the Bostonian drawl ('We dwon' pahk th' cah in Ha'vid Yahd, the' no place t' pahk a cah. Teek th' T, ya' chow'da'hed!'), so I have to move there ... they're the only place that could understand me!
