It's so different from Florida. I miss the ocean for sure, but the mountains are a profoundly different type of beautiful.
I was also sick of Central Florida. So much bad shit happened to me in Orlando that I couldn't even look at the landscape without reliving the humiliation and embarrassment. And since most of Florida is just busy roads with littered with the same 50 or so retail chains, even new places feel like the same shitty old ones. I think I'd be happy just about anywhere that doesn't resemble Florida.
I will probably go back at some point though. One of our things is that we wanna live in a trailer in the keys.
