I've been on the road for the past 2 years, living out of my suitcase. I've had a few stints in some areas including 6 weeks in DC, 4 weeks in Orlando, 15 weeks in Los Angeles, 10 weeks in Portland and about the same for Corvallis, but all the other dozens of weeks over the past 2 years I've been on the road.

I go town to town, festival to festival and live out of my suitcase(s) and/or my Prius.

It suits me well, pun intended, but I'm honestly kinda getting tired of being around a lot of obnoxious people at coffee shops in order to get online, and not having things like an office or even just a printer can hinder of some of my progress.

So, I'm looking to move somewhere.

Where should I go?

I love the sun, love quiet places, enjoy being isolated, away from a lot of other people.

Yes, you are free to tell me to, "Go to hell." :)

I'm honestly leaning toward Austin, TX and in fact I'm online looking up apartments in Austin right now.

In addition to Austin, I'm also looking at these general areas:

South Florida, Southern California, Texas, Las Vegas-area, Arizona, Mexico and the Caribbean. My top priority is a place that is very quiet so I can work without being bothered and the sun and overall warmth is equally important to me.

If I work hard enough, I can start paying rent again soon.

Let me know what suggestions you have for me.

Thanks!

Yes, come to Austin. We are the epicenter of Physical Culture and have a damn good vegan community to boot! Hell, sublet an apartment here for 3 months and try it out. I can almost guarantee you will love it!

And if you live in the right part of town, especially southwest near the hill country, it's very peaceful.

Love that answer!

Thanks Ben!

Give it a try for a few months, test it out, live in a peaceful community and emerge from my writing studio when I feel like interacting with others :)

Sounds outstanding to me!

Alright hit me for any help getting set up down here. Anything you need just let me know. Very likely the VRA will have a good excuse to throw a potluck to welcome you to town.

Wow, I could use that scene to write my next book! What a great backdrop. I used to live in the Caribbean so I'm anxious to get back there! Yeah, being in Texas I'll be close by. Eventually I'll also live in the Caribbean again for a period of time, perhaps even in another year or two.

Thanks for posting this!

As for the question about Austin places to go, I'll follow up soon. I realize you arrive soon but I'll have some updates for you when I get a chance to ask around.

Haven't really been to Atlanta, but would like to check it out. Might be a little too big for me.

I'm becoming more of a small and medium size town guy. Should be in Austin soon. Just a few weeks away, I think.

Thx!

Everyone should live in Las Vegas at least once in their life! it's quite an experience!
I told you before Vegas is booming with vegans recently, and we have a lot of festivals here because of the nice weather. I live in the west by Red Rock and I love it here. Steve Wynn went vegan and the Wynn Casino has vegan options at every restaurant. Lots of Vegan restaurants too. You should consider it on your way to Austin TX! Let me know if you want any help ;-)

I'll be passing through Vegas (for fun, I know it's not totally on the way from where I'll be heading) in a little over a month!

I've enjoyed Vegas visits and thought about living there for a brief period.

I never stay anywhere longer than 6 months, so who knows, I could end up there one of these days too.
