    Rent and bills is so excessive in LA it's starting to be a burden. I need to move. I pay almost 2 grand a month for a little house and 700-800 water and power. That doesn't include all the other stuff.

    I have been looking at Crestline California about 2 hours from LA as a possible move. In the high mountains and right next to a beautiful lake for my RC boats.

    I can get a much better home up there for about 600-800 a month.

    I was wondering if anyone from this community of model nuts and prop bangers lived up there and could fill me in a bit more on the pluses and minuses of living there.

    Thanks guys,

    Steve

    I don't know anything about California, but that sounds like a great area to live. As long as there are hobby shops nearby, that would be the first thing I look for.

    Oh sure, I order stuff too when I have to. I just like to browse the local HS, it's an experience I'd miss.

    Agreed.

    And you might want to have this thrown over to "Off Topic." It'd probably get more traction there.

    I live in the LA area and I can relate to your situation regarding expenses. I have a friend in Crestline by the name of Lawrence Noble that you would probably like to meet. He sculpted the lifesize bronze Yoda at the Lucasfilm Presidio Headquarters, among other great lifesize sculptures. He's a big fan of star wars and sculpture/crafts. He would be your neighbor there, so that's one advantage.

    thanks good to know thanks for that.

    And yes who wouldn't. however it takes money to move and all kinds of planning. the wife and I will visit the place in a couple of weeks. We do have family friends that live there too.

    Keep it coming guys.

    Just as a barometer-- I live in Oklahoma and a 2000'-2200' sq. foot house rents for $1100-$1500 depending on the area of town you live in, how new, how nice, etc Bills for a house that size could run $200-$300 a month.

    I don't know how big your current house is, but the scenery certainly doesn't look like those photo's around here. Good luck and keep us all posted!
