so you are saying if I offered you 150k a year to work level 8 traffic you'd turn it down?Hell yeah, no income taxes and anything you want to do outdoors close by.
San Diego is expensive but you can find something reasonable to the east. And you can't honestly think Reno isn't a shit hole too if you think san diego is. I've spent a fair amount of time in both (more in SD).
edit: just for full disclosure i was born and raise in LA county and lived in orange county for 10 years.
