    I currently live in Virginia and want to move to Seattle to participate in a Data Science Bootcamp with either Galvinize U or General Assembly. I can't stand my current job nor the drama and bs I'm around at this moment. I'll have everything I need around Thanksgiving and I plan on rolling out that weekend and arrive before the first of December. Before I go, I plan on investing in some warm clothes, water, emergency kit, brand new tires, and a tune up. The two quickest routes go through I-64 and various other hwys through WVa, OH, IN, IL with one diverging through IA,MN, and connecting to I-90 in SD and onto WY, MT, ID and WA. The other from IL to WI on I-90 to I-94 through MN, ND, MT and re-emerging on I-90 in MT through ID and WA. The beginning of the trip in the Eastern Mid-Western states I'm not concerned about and anticipate it being a breeze (with the exception of all of those tolls in IL). My biggest concern is the weather in either of the Dakotas and getting through the Rockies in MT, ID, and WA. I've heard many horror stories of Avalanches and extreme Sub-Zero temperatures getting as low as -40°F. I've considered taking the Southern "Panhandle" on I-40 from TN to CA and take I-5 along the coast once I get to CA. However, that would lengthen my trip considerably and cost me more time and money. Any helpful tips? I'm particularly interested in hearing from people who live or have traveled to the high concern areas of the Dakotas, Montana, Idaho, and East Washington.

  • Can cities in different states merge?

    Best answer: No. Each state incorporates cities, towns, villages, etc. It would be impractical for one city to operate under two different states' laws, regulations, tax policies, etc.

  • Is it living in Florida very expensive?

    Best answer: That's a very broad question! Florida is big and different areas have different attributes. I was looking into moving to the Beverly hills area above Tampa a couple of years ago.

    Best answer: That's a very broad question! Florida is big and different areas have different attributes. I was looking into moving to the Beverly hills area above Tampa a couple of years ago. The property taxes are cheap compared to the North East states and there's no taxes on SS income, but I've heard horrible things about additional taxes like some kind of "water run off tax" and other taxes that you don't have elsewhere that make up for that difference. Add that to the fact that you'll be running air conditioning more and most areas requiring flood insurance and it really cuts down on the attraction of the place. Not to mention, everything in Florida can kill you, even the drivers. Eventually, we opted against going there and found some nice areas in Georgia and Tennessee that interest us.

  • How do you find a prostitute in Las Vegas?

    Best answer: You don't. If you're staying in Las Vegas you need to drive for about an hour out to Pahrump where they have legal brothels. The closest ones are Sheri's Ranch and Chicken Ranch.

    Best answer: You don't. If you're staying in Las Vegas you need to drive for about an hour out to Pahrump where they have legal brothels. The closest ones are Sheri's Ranch and Chicken Ranch. The ladies are decent-looking but they can get pricey. I mean you will need to bring some serious dough with you if you want to have a good time.

    If $5k isn't a problem then you may as well just go to Sheri's. I don't know about real hot though, most of the prostitutes you'll find in Vegas are 8s at best so at Sheri's/Chicken Ranch you'll probably see a couple of 8s in each establishment. With all that said, I haven't spent $5k there but definitely in the $3-3.5k ranges.

  • Which should I move to as a 20 something? New Hampshire, Minnesota, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Maine, or Alaska?

    Best answer: Location is just part of it. What is it you really want from a particular location? A decent job? A reasonable rate of pay. A place to live YOU can afford.

    Best answer: Location is just part of it.
    What is it you really want from a particular location?
    A decent job?
    A reasonable rate of pay.
    A place to live YOU can afford.
    Stuff to do when not dealing with the essentials.
    When not at work what is it you would like to do often, once a week or once a month.
    That might be play on the team, go fishing or curl up in front of the fire with a glass of wine.
    and a cuddle buddy.

    Maybe you want city stuff like a different club every week or that new place to taste the menu.

    BEFORE moving in you should visit for at least a few days both summer and winter.

    Have some money in your pocket many one time expenses you need to pay before that new income gets to you.

    What does being 23 or 27 have to do with wanting to go ice fishing ,mountain climbing.or going to the big league game at the big stadium.
    ONLY YOU can place a value on the many intangibles each place has for you. The birds out your window in the morning, The number of places you can get a meal delivery, the paved and snow plowed road from home to where you need to go.
    All of them have weather. If you are prepared it does not really matter.You do not have to go out in a blizzard for a loaf of bread.
    If you are in a remote place you do not have to have your own generator. It might be a very good idea to have one. Only you can place a value on the pluses and minuses of each state and the particular village, town or city you want to go to.

    Alaska has very long days to explore in the summer and very long nights that can allow lots of cuddle time.

    You make it sound like it is impossible to explore each place for a few days.and that you can only move once and it is permanent.
    Pick one and move in. If you like it stay if not try the next one. the place you like at 25 may not be the place you like at 35 , 46 or 65.
    You do not have to buy the new house your first day there.
    A few hours by plane can take you almost anywhere for the weekend get away if that is your thing.
    The toys for the outdoor stuff are not free and it takes time to get the stuff needed for that fishing excursion , a weekend of hunting or whatever it is you desire to do when not at work or dealing with the daily necessities.those little things like having some food to eat, some heat and maybe some lights.
    Some places in Alaska not much use for a car. Do you think the plane for flying in and out is FREE. that your village of a few hundred has all that city stuff.

    The place I prefer is probably not the one you will like.

    YOUR OPINION is really the only one that matters.
