Ok, so I've recently found an opportunity to possibly relocate to Seattle. In doing so, I would be able to put a good chunk of money into savings and jump into a position making a little more than I am now, with plenty of room for growth, and eventually owning the business. The only drawback is, it is a LONG move. I'm in Mississippi right now. I have family and friends here, and am very well tied into the music scene (although music is only a hobby at this point). Moving that far away would pretty much be starting over...I know absolutly nobody in Seattle. I'm single with no kids, so it doesn't really bother me too much, other than missing family/friends. So, I figured I'd check in here...If anyone here is familiar with the area, please chime in. Cost of living, recreation,crime rates, weather, music, etc... There are a LOT of pieces that need to fall into place for this to happen, but I figured I'd check it out early. I plan on flying out there soon to get a feel for it. I've never been to Seattle, but I have spent some time in N. Cali and liked it a lot. Any thoughts?
