If family, work, school, money, etc, weren't an issue, where would you like to try living for a while?

I can think of many places that interest me, but if I had to pick just one, I'd say New Zealand.

Boulder, or Clearwater. Though to be honest, if I lived in Boulder, my friends might not like me as much.

Somewhere closer to the mountains, mostly.

Seattle
Portland
Santa Fe or Taos would be cool. (Maybe too "playground of the rich," though--that gets old.)
Or even somewhere smaller but really close to great hiking: Crestone, CO, Red Lodge, MT, etc

Bend, Bozeman, Burlington? But I really can't complain-I'm 10 min from great beaches and sailing, about an hour from some pretty good hiking, and about 4 hrs from good skiing and wilderness. And the local cycling club is great! Like Big Load noted-the grass is always greener.....

Were money no object, I'd live in two places... definitely either Montana or Wyoming, and a second, warmer spot. The second spot would change yearly per whim. Bali one year, the Greek islands the next... and so forth :)

Well, there is a plot of land I have my eye on 1 mile west up the road. It would make my trip to the nearest non ORV trail longer, though. It would probably take 6 minutes instead of 5.  :)
