I am in SoCal, and I've definitely had experience with fires over the years. Lost my first car to the Painted Cave Fire (I was driving it at the time - no NASCAR driver on Earth could have beaten me that day) and thanks to the Thomas Fire a few years ago I lost a tree in my backyard. My daddy (RIP) planted that tree so it was sad to see it go.

Also special was the mudslide debacle in Montecito in 2018 that followed the Thomas Fire. I live in a small town on an elevated area just east of Montecito. Everyone in town was trapped in their houses for two weeks thanks to massive debris flows blocking all means of ingress/egress. I have never been more grateful for my landline because I was one of the only people able to contact the outside world for days. The mudslides had taken out every relay tower for miles around, but landlines were still live.

I've actually never even been to Florida. I'll have to visit sometime in one of the cooler months.
Yeah November to February is beautiful here...

That would be my ideal time to visit there. Maybe someday...

I'm guessing you've never tried In-N-Out.

FYI, My favorite Jalpeno burger is Carl's Jr's Jalapeno burger.

LOL

I'm having a tough time arguing with most of that, though I will say that as long as you get away from the heavy traffic areas (i.e. L.A. and the Bay Area) our drivers tend to really know what they're doing. Just don't ask us SoCal folks to drive in the snow, and I suspect Florida drivers have a similar problem.

I get way too many soggy buns from CJ's. I'll take In'n'Out over that. I'm extremely grossed out by soggy buns.

We do the same thing in the heavy-traffic areas. One guy doesn't know how to handle precipitation and everyone panics.

Yup, San Diego is another place that would have it.

I've been to Florida a few times and can't think of anything of interest outside of the theme parks. Maybe going there to leave on a cruise.

In 1987 I was in Orlando with another American and 2 Japanese martial arts masters to meet with Navy brass. When the troops were out marching, I noticed the squirrels would march alongside them instead of running away.

That old Navy base has since been turned into a residential neighborhood.
No military there at all now....

Theme parks get old after the first visit. If you have arthritis and can't stand the cold, that would be the only real reason to move to Florida. But with the severe lacking of home insurance companies and hurricanes people are seriously questioning staying here....

@Bronte I'm thinking you are getting to old to appreciate Florida...but that would be ironic. Maybe Florida appreciation is an inverse bell curve? It's fun when you are young, and great again when you are old. But harder to appreciate between the ages of like 35 and 65?

That depends upon the theme park. If it's kiddie rides and dioramas, then yeah, one and done. I, however, am a big coaster fan, so if an amusement park has a bunch of awesome coasters I can do that over & over.

One place I draw the line is fairground or funfair rides. I don't care how cool it looks, if it's not solidly and permanently affixed to the ground I'm not going on it.

Florida has the nicest beaches of the contiguous states. If you include Hawaii then those two can fight it out.

Wife and I took a small boat ride off Capri. Snorkeling, exploring grottos etc. Our boat’s pilot was a late teens/early 20s guy and first thing he (excitedly) asked after hearing our accents was “have you been to Florida??!”

He lives in one of the most idyllic places on earth. Maybe Miami Vice is still popular there? Grass greener, yadda, yadda.

Do you know who keeps the coral reefs in Florida so spectacular?

You might be right. But I could just be an old codger that just complains about everything and everyone at this point on life. =)

I've been more than once. I wouldn't be the person who gets an annual pass but once every few years or whatever. Same as Vegas.

Siesta Key has one of the greatest beaches in the world. Don’t like white beaches but you want to spend an afternoon looking for shark’s teeth? Head down to Venice beach and walk around. They are plentiful there. Take a 4 1/2 hour ride to the other side of the state and you can tour Cape Canaveral/NASA. Spend a few days in that area and check out the beaches around Cocoa Beach. Travel north and you’ll see Daytona Beach, and St Augustine. Check out the Castillo de San Marcos fort while you are in St Augustine. You’ll be amazed. On your return to Sarasota go north through Jacksonville then shift west and south. You’ll head over to a little town outside of Gainesville called Williston. Before you go make an appointment and book your SCUBA time at Devil’s Den. Enjoy the clear water in that spring. Then head back south and stop in Safety Harbor and talk to the locals about a certain dock at the end of a residential street where the manatee hang out. If you are lucky they will give you directions so you can go and look at them one evening. They pop right up there and take deep breaths before going back under the water. It used to drive my dog Bear nuts every time we went. If it’s the right time of the year head south to Fort Meyers or even further south to go tarpon fishing.

Yep, nothing but kids and old people can dig FLA. 🙄
