Kentucky's not too bad, I guess. There's really not that much here, though -- just two major cities and the Vette plant.

I'd say probably a lot of the mountain states like Wyoming and Montana.

Louisiana is pretty free with itself. Very relaxed gunlaws and to this date I dont know of any intrusive government interference. However our state leaders are morons as many people witnessed after Katrina and Rita.

However if you move anywhere from South-Central to Northerne Louisiana, you wont have those pesky storm problems :)

Thanks for the low-down, but I need to stay north of the Mason-Dixon line as I hate hot weather. :lol:

It ain't Jersey, I can vouch for that. Unless you don't happen to feel excessive taxation is intrusive... then it's fine.

I do wonder about Wyoming. Isn't it the least populated state (maybe per sq mile)? I could go for that.

What's your beef with PA, Camino? If it weren't for niggling things like work & family, I could go for central PA in a big way, even tho in my dealings in eastern PA, it's earned the derogitory nickname of 'Pennsyltucky'. Very relaxing out there, at least it seems so for this occasional intruder.

The main beef is the ever-increasing population density here in SE PA. I love the land itself, but there are too many people by twice at least. The rest of the state is much more open.

OK, so why not bump west a bit?

And you know you can't tell me about population from that side of the Delaware, right? ;)

I've considered it, and it may still be an option. I can't help thinking that somewhere entirely new might be more to my liking though.

No, I know Jersey has those issues in an exponentially worse way.

Camino, I have nothing to offer you. But I know what Balthazar means by population growth in NJ, plus the cost of insurance and property tax. If I had a Pennsylvania teacher's license, I'd probably be living & working somewhere in PA, maybe out near Hershey. My uncle lived in Inidana, PA and it was real nice out there - very small-town-USA kind of thing (it was that way, as of my last visit in 1990) and relaxed a bit more than what I'm use to. Good luck finding what makes you happy.

Oh you'd defintely hate it here then lol. 98 degree summers with 100 percent humidity lol. I used to get a kick when I'd go down to New Orleans and see people sitting on park benches exhausted and appearing to be on their last breaths. You always knew they were tourists that were not used to the humidity. :lol:

Alaska has been on my mind for years, but I'm not so sure I want to be there year round. I'm thinking New England or the Pacific northwest if I actually dump PA.

Well Alaska is pretty much final for me. In the next two years they are running power arcoss a new section of land on top of a hill looking over a river and in the distance some snow top mountains. I Have some connections up there in Ninilchik that will look into it once and awhile and tell me when the Sale sign goes up on a 2 acre lot.

But as for Free states i would think a half horse town in Montana.

Montana is pretty "free" so to speak. I'm not so sure about free in laws pre se, but just the land itself gives you a feeling of freedom. Vast prairies, rolling hills, rock formations... it's beautiful to cruise the I-90 and the smaller highways.

Whenever I've gone there, I want to stay.

Alaska is also very nice, and I was surprised to realize that the cities of Fairbanks and Anchorage, while not giant, are actually decent sizes. However, access is limited to you travelling up through my province or Alberta, or catching a long ferry ride from Bellingham, or somewhere in Washington.

Isnt Oregon where all the paranoids go to keep under the radar...........or was that over with a few decades ago when everyone figured out they were there, hiding in bomb shelters with lots of ammo................. :lol:

An old girlfriend told me when they found the unibomber she though of me............ :lol: No! I dont have bombs or even guns just that nearly finished vaporizor. She was more talking about my attitude and reclusiveness in a humorous way.

I dont know about Montana but Colorado and other Rockey States, I have been told,are over run with wealthy people that have drivin the cost of property out of reach of most the states natives. Much like NYCitites have done here in upstate NY. I imagine thats the same problem Balth and Camino are referring too. That is the same basis on which I have based my "one day we will all be in trailor parks" speach. :scratchchin:

Balance the scales brothers we are not the enemy or indentured servants, we are the ones that do the dirty work you do not want to do, we deserve our fair share for our contribution to socioty. Maybe if we could afford to live better you would not have to call us "white trash" "rednecks" "illiterate" or whatever other insults seem to suit ones fancy at any givin time.

New Hampshire is a nice state but theres lots of money up there too and if you cant touch it you will be forced to suffer, same as in our areas. The very rural North of NH is really cool but Im not sure how to make a living there.

Ive consider Alaska for decades, due to my interests, but now Im older and seem to have lost my cryptonite. I also hate blood sucking insects and while I have delt with them my whole life, Alaska sounds like an extreme I may not be comfortable with.

Funny, but I was just posting on Canada and for some time I have considered the Canadian bush but once again, not sure how Id make a living.

Texas, where its OK to be a "redneck" and a "good ol boy" and go to work and get "dirty", wear boots and cowboy hats and spit, swear and slap the ladies on the ass...................... :lol: Just kidin I dont know a thing about Texas but I will admit getting out of the "blue states" is beginning to sound like a good idea. To many people around these parts decideing that thier way is the only way, the whimpy way, the prissy way, the illogical way, because they went to college and some book said so. I prefer independant thought and observation myself.

I dont think anybody has given the obvious answer of Nevada yet. They have almost no taxes there and their laws are pretty forgiving as long as you are not in the casino business.

i have this coffee cup from new hampshire with the state motto live free or die and when you look at the bottom of the cup it says made in china. i always wonder if those poor bastards making those cups can read english....

i dont know what your looking to do but i know here in ny its pretty damn free to go about as you please. ive been stopped more times out of state for nothing more than walking down the block after 1 in the morning. thats never ever once happened here. seriously id guess vegas down south/west or n.h. up north east would be the best bets.

i have my reasons.
