Wow, I cannot even imagine moving 3000 miles away! Daniel and I said years ago that we are pretty much "stuck" here in the Phoenix, Arizona area. Neither of us has any desire to go elsewhere, and we have both grown up here.
I think what I would miss most is how I can hop in my car at any time of the year and drive away without warming up the car. I visited Woodstock, IL (my birthplace and where I spent the first ten years of my life) when I was 18 with the intention of moving there. Within days I knew that wasn't the place for me. Who wants to shovel snow for an hour before leaving the driveway? (Sorry to all of you who do, it just isn't for me.) Here, even in the coldest of weather, I can be on the road within minutes of stepping out my front door.
