lowbrow, do you mean Pisgah National Forest, or is there a Pisqua, too?  I've been to Pisgah and done the Blue Ridge Parkway, too.  Grandfather Mountain with the mile high swinging bridge is cool.

Yeah Pisgah.. I couldnt remember the spelling.. I even ran it through google and it came up with a bunch of hits so I kept the spelling. LOL. Yeah the parkway is a nice drive. I hitchhiked it once and got a ride in a 911 and the guy had a foot of lead... what a fun but scary time.

Sliding Rock you mean?

That is vaguely familiar but actually I do mean Shining Rock...

I'm not going to say because I don't want anyone else moving there.

Brilliant!

Anywhere - Pensacola. Grandparents live in a gorgeous old neighbourhood just of Navy Blvd. ... but I wouldn't want to live next to them. <_<

Anywhere north of I-10 - middle of nowhere, Missouri. Shelbina was nice.

Houston area - Surfside Beach.

Houston area which is actually Houston and not 50 miles down the coast - is it a bad sign that I *like* the neighbourhood in which UofH is?

It is funny how River Oaks is higher than the others (besides "Other") ~ I think if you have lived in River Oaks and pay the god-awful taxes you would think otherwise. Downtown Houston taxes are a bit high compared to the suburbs, but it is manageable.

I picked Tahiti ~ I love the US and Houston ~ but I am sick of the US ~ Tahiti or Australia please!

Commerce Towers is very nice :) (I wish the area was "clean" though)

Boy these are OLD topics but what the hell.

I would totally leave the US and find my new life in Como, Italia situated right on a lake. I think Clooney has a pad nearby?

Second choice, anywhere near the ocean in Spain.

3rd choice, Argentina

Ah HA, so it is you voting on all these old polls :P , like which city is the largeest land wise and the nmainguy birthday poll!

To be honest with everyone, my dream place to live is on the movie set or soundstage of any major movie studio. Especially this one from the scene of DW Griffith's - Intolerance. Right next to the huge plaster elephant's! :lol:

Well, the Animaniacs live in the water tower at Warner Brothers Studios so why not me?

~ but I am sick of the US ~
Me to!!! I'm "sick" of having the opportunity to realize any dream I have, as long as I'm willing to work for it. I'm also "sick" of the almost absolute freedom to say what I want, to anyone I want, without fear of my government's intervention. I'm "sick" of alot more things here in the states but it would take to long to mention. <_<

Edit: Of all the places I've lived and traveled to, I would still pick the Rice/West U area to live. I don't know what it is, but I love it over there.

or the top floor of the JPMorgan Chase Tower.

It'd be sweet to buy out the space. Besides I have no problem with that standard office building smell anyway so keep that too. ^_^

While on office building conversions, I'd also go for the Wells Fargo Tower's upper set of skylobbies. For some reason I love the cross bracing you see on the inside, plus I think the eastern view is a bit of a change, but it'd still be cool.

For something more feasible (but still well out of my price range), I'd like to buy a house I rented for the winter several years ago. It's along the Maine coast in a town just south of Portland. Just yards from and over the dunegrass from a beach, trails that lead through a state park on the perimiter of the neighborhood... and in winter I'd have the small street to myself! I have no problem with snow or cold so that's not an issue either. The home is nice,not too big or small, but perfect for my needs. With a little upgrading on the tech front, it'd be somewhere I'd love to call home permanently. :)
