Thank you everybody for the responses and keeping on topic. I now know what I gotta do, I had an idea before but wanted to see if what I'm wanting to do is selfish and too risky or if it's worth everything it would take to make it happen. It won't be tomorrow or anything but the process is underway. Any other suggestions regarding jobs, relocating, etc. are welcomed.

The introspective reading is very good. I could give you several titles that have been difference makers for me. In the end, it's all repetitive affirmations. Nothing we ever need to know is that complex, we just tend to forget to remember it!
Tons of good statements and frames of mind on this thread. Props to you for putting yourself out there on the pedestal for honest feedback that everyone seems to be giving in the right ways.
A couple of things that resonate with me that I've heard so far:
- Family. It's always first. Without them we are nothing.
- The good wife. If you got one, and she is the right one, she is your strength. It's a team decision from that point. If you don't have one, don't fill the void with the wrong one, because the one you want is waiting for you to become strong enough for her.
- Wherever you go, there you are. People migrate to what they need. Sometimes we have no clue that we arrived at the destination we've been dying to get to. It just sometimes looks completely different than what we envisioned. Don't let that filet mignon go bad while you sit there pining away for that 80% lean burger.

I haven't read all of these responses so just keep that in mind.....if I repeat or whatever.......
The grass isn't always greener on the other side........
Sometimes people who live inland actually surf more than those at the coast. If you make the drive, you are going out no matter what, right?
Sometimes the closer you are to the beach the more excuses you make......ahhh I'll wait till the tide drops.....ahhh I'll wait until the winds slack........ahhhh I'll hit it first thing tomorrow.....Ironically since it's always right there some might tend to get lazy.......maybe.......after awhile........and actually surf less. After a year or two being in a new coastal locale you might have to change your moniker to, "Dusk Patrol SUP" or "Tomorrow Patrol SUP." Oh, it happens. I lived a half-block from that ocean in North Carolina. I never surfed less. Maybe that was the booze. I don't know......
The drives are a hassle? Don't you always got a lid? A two finger lid?? Three? Driving is swell when you got a lid.
Hey, I'm not being cocky, I'm serious here: Are you really going to weigh the advice from Swellinfo dudes? If so, you Swellinfo guys should be honored.

No kids? DO IT. Kids, then stay close to parents or your support system. Kids - I love them, but it can get tough.
