Just made an account. Long time lurker. Im a 24 year old male from the midwest.
About 3 weeks ago i decided to up and leave and head for the west coast. Why? Idk.
Didnt have much back home and needed a change.

Stuff here is going ok so far. Came out with the Girlfriend thinking we'd be alright.
Turns out things didnt go quite as planned and now we're left without a place to stay hah.

Things are alright though. managed to find work, minimum wage but i guess its something to start on.

I dont know anyone here so i suppose me adding all this to my intro was just a way of venting a bit.

Seems we may take for granted the value of a listening ear.

Anyway Glad to be here hope to be part of some great convos!

Have a great day everyone

Welcome aboard. Depends on which side of the bridge you're on as to what to wear. Niners or Raiders.

Hi!! Welcome!!
Good move, heading to the west coast, especially the bay area. I, too, was from the midwest (southern illinois) and moved to San Francisco, pretty much for the same reasons as you. ended up in limbo, at hostels, and on couches briefly, then found a tiny studio in the Tenderloin in SF. BEST TIME OF MY LIFE!! Later moved to Fremont in the east bay, for 10 yrs, but i had to return to the midwest recently, but i miss the bay area so much! You'll love it. Dont ever leave, its the best place for open minds and experiencing high strangeness, but in a good way. lol 99% of the paranormal, spiritual, ufo, etc etc etc i ever experienced was there. if you ever want tips on where to go, what to do, places to check out, just ask! Good Luck!! People there are great, you'll do well.

where are you at in the Bay Area? I mostly explored SF and Fremont/Hayward/Alameda/San Jose... theres lots of old cemeteries, spanish Missions, old historic sites/homes/landmarks.. a lot of places in the east bay are just how they were from the turn of the century, not a lot of over development, which is great for paranormal activity. the bay area is also great for ufo and sky watching.

Currently stationed in the East Bay because thats where i landed some work. You been to any areas around there first hand?

posted on Mar, 7 2015 @ 06:49 PM
yep! I lived in Fremont for 10 years. spent most of my ghost hunting etc adventures in that general area of the east bay. the old cemeteries and missions in Hayward and Fremont are great, check those out. and the USS Hornet in Alameda is very cool
it has a long paranormal history, theres lots of videos online about it, too. a reply to: Sinotherman0110
