Unless a person has a real lot of money to waste, stay away from Cali. The cost of living there is way too high. They made their bed, let them lay in it. I feel sorry for some of the people working there, they are brainwashed to think they are doing great because of the wage they make. But they are no better off than working somewhere else where the cost of living is less. People are not that smart, the more you spend, the more you need to make to be at the same place.

Half the state of California lives in delusion, they can't comprehend that their high cost of living is making them poor.

Yea the surfer boy life style looks great, the problem is that died by the mid '80s id guess, but to be honest I have never been there for long usually while passing through for the military.

So your mileage may vary...

Friendly people and cash for anyone willing to work hard is the key to a nice place.


Probably be a lot of work in the sanitation industry, due to the periodic cleaning of the homeless camps.

It's like that here though, Northern people whine about being skint but Devon & Cornwall have some of the highest utility and house prices but the same minimum wage.
Scottish people are the worst for moaning, and their water bills are included in property taxes, a pound a day for most folk.
There are whinge bags everywhere lol

California native here.

I live in northern CA, near the state capital actually.
Retired, with a pension. Own a home, make about $36K per year, now.

Life is Good.

Not jet set (though there is a private prop plane in the family), no lavish parties (but domestic champagne is cheap enough to lubricate our parties).

Come with a skill, or a really good idea.

Remember, In it’s own, California is the world’s sixth largest economy.

Well you have to understand that in Northern California you're going to be paying 50% of that taxes right off the bat 39% to the federal government and 10% to the state of Cali so you would have to be able to live off of half of that and the housing alone would cost you the majority of that and you'll be living in the s*** hole.

Let's summarize. Cali gets a bad rap because, well, "Caifornicate" about sums it up.

1. Extreme leftist politics.
2. Extreme taxes.
3. Extreme traffic.
4. Extreme cost-of-living.
5. Extreme crowding.
6. Extreme lack of water.
7. Extreme wild fires.
8. Extreme pollution.

But you can't knock the weather and if you are into welfare payments, that's the place to go. Everyone gets a large screen TV with their first month's payment.

True, but your Thailands etc you have to do the border run every 30 days or so, been there done that.
If my lad wants to find the land of the free through hard work, #in A, Cali seems fantastic to a non-native, and the state seems to be begging UK citizens right now through their advertising.

Yup, the only good thing about California is the physical land it occupies. That is, when that land isn't on fire or getting washed out from under you.

It’s good to be positive. But, if he is going to San Francisco it may be useful to have a map of the area so as to avoid any....um pitfalls.

Yeah, I've noticed how people love to bitch about how horrible California is.

Interestingly though, if California was an actual country, it'd be like the 6th most wealthiest country in the world... So you'd think it must have something going for it.

I'm assuming your house is paid for and or you've owned it for many many years before the housing went out of control insane up there?

No one is coming up there now making less than a couple hundred thousand dollars a year and living decently. They're especially not going to own a decent house.

Junk stat, if California was a country it would have costs that the federal government provides factored into it's economy. It's dishonest to throw that stat around.

I wonder how much federal financial aid and manpower the Fed spends on all those wild fires.

It's a bogus stat to confuse people.

Well, just know if he gets 'skint' (?) and needs help, if he can get to me he's got a roof and a belly full ( may be mostly full in all honesty LOL) until you can send for him,
Anyways, good luck to the young man, I remember being young, fearless and going wherever the wind blew. Those were some of the best times of my life!

Was supposed to be full in beer...dunno what happened! LOL
