California, has everything.....that is why everyone is here. Pay for most jobs is way higher here, that is why most don't leave. (one of the only reasons I am still here) Eveyone wishes everyone else would just leave but, more just keep coming and coming and coming....... All the mountains, rivers, desert, ocean are in the right, easy to get to places. It would be a perfect state if it wasn't for all the people. Riding, horses, water/snow skiing, hunting, fishing, lots of sky diving, best hiking, boating just can't do any of it without someone giving you a ticket or paying for every move you make. So. Cal. weather is almost always perfect. I live out away from the constant brown sky, that tastes funny, makes your lungs hurt. Water you drink from the faucet makes you sick. So many rules, I am sure %100 of the quadrizilion people break a law every day.....at least one. It is a truely wounderful state:worthy: The riding is way awesome if you don't get caught. Some of the best sand dunes of any state, Pismo dunes on the beach in July/August @ 70 degrees! Jumping dunes as you look out at the ocean. Dumont dunes are huge!!!!! Competition hill is over 1200 feet almost straight up! 70~80 degrees any month but, summer months. Same weather at Glamis Dunes. Best desert riding from Ocotillo, Mojave, Jawbone, Sunfair, Forest riding.
