You won't regret your decision to come to CA. Ditto on help with areas to wheel.

I have been looking for a way out of Sac area for some time. I live just south of Sac in Elk Grove. Some other things to consider, 150.00 fines for non spayed or neutered dog, Cops do not respond to a home break in unless the criminal is still at the scene, everything is pretty much more expensive. If you plan on fishing and hunting you need a law degree to decipher the regulations.
Dont get me wrong, the place can be beautiful in the spring time, and sierras are always nice but the BS is too deep for me.

Hmmm, walk in to Big 5 and ask for a hunting or fishing license.... done. I've never had any problem with that. That other stuff must be Elk Grove specific, that sucks.

How many fishing poles do you need? What a three foot steal head report card you need to carry on your person, god forbid you catch a steal head while salmon fishing and your card wanst filled out first. Where do you plan on fishing, do you have the right stamp for the right location and the right fish.

2 day hunting class, that you have to schedule a month a head of time.
No buying ammo online. The positive note, the new sheriff claims to be a shall issue regarding concealed carry

Buying a few dirt bikes for the family? Make sure the bikes have the proper sticker on them. If you buy one red and one green you may not be able to ride them in the same month together.

Have a fire place? Make sure you are using it on the proper day, the cops may not show up for a burglary but they will be there in a heart beat if you burn on the wrong day.

The no ammo online law was overturned by a federal court. You're right though you should probably move if this place is driving you crazy.

I've just never had any of those problems I guess. That's not to say that CA doesn't have ignorant rules and such. Really a fireplace??? I burn everyday of the winter without a problem, again that's an area thing.

I'm not arguing with you, just think you're being a little overly dramatic.

You are in Nevada city? That seems to be a different world than down in the valley. My wife's family is from that area. Her grandfathers both raise cattle up in Grass Valley. If my information is correct you even have different smog laws up there.
I am speaking from personal experience only and that related to south Sacramento area. When I moved out here from Jersey in 05 I thought I was leaving absurd regulations behind, when in reality I jumped from the fireplace into the fire. I had all sorts of issues smoging my jeep, registering my boat and getting my hunting license.

True Northern California is one of the most beautiful places in the world. I adore the Sierras, and coast, but it comes at a substantial cost.

Thanks for the heads up the online ammo purchasing. For me that was the last straw, even though I purchase very little ammo online.

See you've only been here since '05 give it another 10 years or so and it'll warp your brain like mine and you'll just accept the lunacy.

All the BS seems worth it just for that. There are over 37 million people in California. We need some rules to keep the idiots in check.

After much research I had to tell my boss I was staying in Nashville. I was getting a 15% cost of living and with California taxes my take-home pay would have been the same as nashville where they have no state income tax. Broke my heart but I would have been a hobo if I had went because cost of living is 30% higher in CA and your guys gas cost like 5 bucks a gallon.
