  5. *lol* Welcome! I'm just north of Houston, in The Woodlands, TX.

  8. I hope I get to see you guys soon! Me, Ed, you, and Dave should all meet up again. You two are very lucky to have found each other. I'm still looking for a nice vegan girl. *sighs*
  9. I haven't seen you or Dave since we met up at Pizza Fusion months ago. How have you guys been?
  10. Houston Area Vegans MySpace Group http://groups.myspace.com/houtxvegans
  11. I'm moving to the Grand Rapids area in Nov., so if anyone knows someone who is vegan/vegetarian and needs a roommate let me know! I'm looking for a room to rent.
  12. So, I've decided to move back to Michigan. Most likely western or northern (not UP) Michigan. I'm thinking Grand Rapids or one of the surrounding cities such as Muskegon or Grand Haven. Or maybe Traverse City. Not sure. My brother should be happy to see me. ;-p
  13. I have made a decision against the PNW. I will be moving to the Midwest. In the Midwest I have laid my preference to Wisconsin. But, I have a friend in Ohio that is wanting me as a roommate and would let me stay for free until I was able to find a job. Then there is Michigan; my brother lives there.
  14. What about Canada? What areas of Canada would fit my descriptions? How hard is it for an American to live in Canada?
  15. The only things I'm worried about with the PNW is the cost of living, lack of sunshine, and constant drizzling rain 1/2 - 3/4 the year. But, then the Midwest can be pretty humid in the summer (not as bad as Houston at least!), with mosquitos, etc., and then really cold, wet winters with blizzards and slush/mud, etc. But, the Midwest seems more peaceful and relaxed, and I like the idea of distinct seasons, and I do like snow, as long as it's not too dreary out and I can actually enjoy it (can't if it's blizzarding!). But the PNW seems like it would have better temperatures. Not so much humidity, rarely getting above 81 in the summer, and not too cold in the winters. But then again rain, rain, wet... grey. No snow. (I wouldn't concider eastern parts of WA or OR due too it's aridness and lack of forests.) Anyhow, if the PNW it woudl definitely be west OR, or west WA. If Midwest than north MI, north WI, or northeast MN. I've decided against CO.
  16. Well, I definitely know what I don't want. I don't want to live somewhere where the summer temps are in the 90s+, or somewhere with horrible amounts of humidity. I live just outside of Houston, and I can say with all certainty that the more humidity, the more miserable the weather. But, it also never snows here. I like snow. I wish to have snow at least sometimes during the year. But, of course if it always blizzards or snows all the time, or is always freezing cold, or slushy/muddy, I probably wouldn't like that either. Hmm... I'm assuming the PNW is going to have more variety when it comes to nature: Mountains, ocean, lakes, rivers, grassy rolling hills, forests. And the weather seems more stable and mild. Then the Midwest has distinct seasons, beautiful forests, lakes, rivers, and the Great Lakes are like an ocean. Grr... I'm so confused! *LOL* What I do want: Veg* friendly, lots of veg*ans (so, I can have lots of like-minded friends, find a good future vegan wife and raise little vegan munchkins, and so they can have plenty of vegan friends), lots of nature, forests to hike through, seasons, mild summers (nothing in the 90s!) with not too much humidity. Honostly, my ideal tempurature is mid-high 70s, which is not too cold and not too warm. Low crime, low drug use, some place affordable (I don't want to live in a cardboard box). Some place green, and eco/enviromentally friendly. I'm not too fond of really large cities. They are nice to visit for a day every so often, but not to live in everyday. I guess I should stick to the goveg.com veg*-friendly cities list if I want to be around more vegans. I'm contemplating all this as I'm writing. It's a big decision, and I want to make it right. America's Best Vegetarian-Friendly Large Cities: 1. Portland, Oregon 2. Seattle, Washington 7. Minneapolis, Minnesota America's Best Vegetarian-Friendly Small Cities: 2. Eugene, Oregon 8. Madison, Wisconsin 10. Ann Arbor, Michigan http://www.goveg.com/f-vegcities.asp
  17. Hmm... Let's break things up by regions and then start narrowing down from there. In the Midwest, which state has the best forests and nature, best weather, highest population of veg*ans, is more veg* friendly, etc. And then also the same questions for the PNW. Has anyone here visited or lived in MI, WI, and MN (not just one, but all), that can compare all 3? Does anyone know which Midwest state has more veg*ans and is the most veg* friendly? Has anyone lived or visited both the Midwest and PNW, that can compare both regions?
  18. I don't have the money for VV08, and doubt I would be able to get off work for it.
  19. Are there alot of nice days in OR and WA? I like to go exploring/hiking/walking in the woods/forests alot, but you can't really do that if it's too hot and humid, or always wet and rainy.
  20. Well, I only have an Associate degree at the moment, and don't really have a career, but a job that pays the bills. That's about it. Making money isn't important to me. Being happy is.
  21. I wouldn't mind living in Canada. But, someone told me it's hard for Americans to live and get citizenship in Canada. Said Canadians don't want us. *lol*
  22. Okay, so I'm looking to move to another state. I've never liked the state I'm presently in. Somewhere with seasons preferably, and veg* friendly. Oh, and MUST have forests. I also don't like places that are hot. At the moment I'm playing with the ideas of Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, Colorado, Oregon, and Washington. But, I also don't want to live somewhere with a really high cost of living. I want somewhere safe, with relatively low crime, and lots of nature. Recomendations on states, cities, and towns are all welcome.
  23. The first one said I was closest to Ron Paul. And because Ron Paul was left out of the second one, I scored closest to Mitt Romney. Blah... Go Ron Paul!
  24. Yep. I'm on MySpace, Facebook, Vegspace, and StudiVZ.
