Move from N. California to Texas!Oil still full.

We decided to go back to Texas to be closer to family. Wife was able to find a great job and no state income tax is a plus, more on the paycheck!
We drove my Jeep with a full load of luggage and other things, the 1800 mile
journey.
I ran the Jeep hard, up and down hills keeping it between 70 and 85 mph.
Checked the oil level and not a drop used. I was estimating some oil was gone, but it was still on the full mark. total is 2500 miles on the oil change.

Btw- Californians can keep those high gas prices. Texas is 2.99 a gal!

Just wait till you pay your property taxes. How do you think that all the illegals get their medical visits payed for?

Texas code means nothing? What info gives you the idea our property tax pays anyones medical bills?

We pay to city, school and county - none of which pays medical bills - that comes from federal programs (i.e. INCOME TAX that even YOU pay - maybe).

And we pay less per thousand valuation than Cal - or NM.

Now SALES TAX goes to state - and they fund some Medical....

Well you got a twofer! Get away from the republic of Kali and move to a pretty decent state!
Been to Texas a few times in the Army. That place is freaking HUGE.

Doesn't have to turn in to a California Bash does it. You either like living some where or you don't. If you don't like it, leave. That holds true for all 50 states. Raised in California since 12 years old. Just a normal as anyone else out there. I happen to like calling this our home base though. My kids live here, my two grand daughters live here so this is a good place to live. All the crap and nutso stuff you hear about here, happens every where.
Good luck on your move and I'm happy you get to be with family, that's the most important part.

I've got too many guns for Cali, not enough for Texas. I'll stick to about halfway between, I guess.

Born and raised in California - got to Texas as soon as I could. Miss the weather and that's about all. Love this state. Cost of living INCLUDING TAXES is about 70% of what it costs to live in California. Gotta ask - is sunshine worth that - imo it should be free.

It is worth it, if you can afford it. We had a house in Prescott AZ that we went back and forth from. I missed the ocean, the kids, and laugh if you will, the people. Not that all of them are this way but our friends here are open minded, community minded, giving, caring people. No place like home I say.
If you don't like it here, don't let the door hit you in the rear end on the way out.
Cheers
