    I would go for it. what a lot of people said about doing this stuff before you get tied down with responsibilities is dead on.

    HOWEVER, I think you need to keep you eyes open. CA is not this nirvana people make it out to be. They have the highest unemployment rate in the US (http://www.bls.gov/lau/) and one of the largest budget deficits. At some point they are going to have to get their finances in order that will most likely mean much higher taxes and a dramatic scaling back of the government freebies like the tuition deals.

    Agreed...There are a lot of people in California and a lot of traffic, but there are also a LOT more waves....

    Blacks Beach
    Windansea
    Swamis
    Cardiff
    Cottons
    Church
    Pleasure Point
    Steamer Lane

    I've caught all of these spots more than once in really fun chest+ clean conditions. For those spots that would be in between "real" swells. While crowded and competitive, they were less crowded and less annoying than good spots in fun conditions in Cape May, Delaware (all the obvious spots) and Ocean City Maryland in all but deep winter.

    And those (the California spots) are the easily accessible spots a clown from Delaware can just drive up and surf without too much thought...

    Im not saying California isnt more crowded than the east coast, but you've got to factor in the consistency and huge number of options out there.

    Pretty cool they forked it on the flat bed like that. I once put a guys ford escort on a storage loft with a fork lift like that.. The guy called the cops and reported his car stollen cause he couldnt find it. About a hour before the end of our shift we showed him gave him his car back and he drove home . On his way home the cops stopped him cause his car fit the discription of one stollen earlier in the day LOL

    The lead attorney just walked in and congratulated me on making the move. Last guy expected to say that. Anyway, he looks at my boss and goes "why dont you just lay him off, May 6th so he can collect unemployment while he looks for work."

    Muahahahaha 26 weeks, $369 a week = not working for 6 months!!!

    Wait a minute, unemployment is $369 a week? thats $9594 for 26 weeks.. What the hell thats about how much i make a week at my summer job slaving in a kitchen. Well good for you, glad your making a big change and sounds like a killer adventure. Also glad our government is F***in' retarded for handing out massive sums of money (no offense to you).

    I wouldnt boast about something like this... In fact it might be illegal. But, thats what wrong with our system... too many ways to take advantage of the system. Not saying your doing anything wrong, but someone in your situation should not be collecting unemployment. Why should tax payers, pay for you to essentially quit your job?
