Hi guys, Havnt posted in a long long while. Lots have happened since I've been gone. I need you guys' help for those who live or lived in Washington state what do you think? Pros and Cons? I've about had it in Cali! Sooooo many restrictions and regulations. I like nice quiet bountiful life, not so much the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles. I cant even keep roosters or male goats which really bugs the crap outa me. Just the other day we got a ticket from parkin in front of our house...what the crap!? And we have too many dogs (4), it was either surrender them to animal control or get a felony and possible prison time...REALLY? Prison time for dogs...wasnt even allowed to give them away because they were "evidence" Anyways enough ranting there's many reasons why I'm really beginning to dislike California. I really dont mind the rain, its sooo dry here..I have to water EVERYTHING to keep anything green! I'd love to have more land for my animals and garden. I'd give up the sun any-day to have free resources (water, prob not solar energy..wind energy perhaps? or water turbine if near a river) found a 150acre for 600k complete with cheese caves, river, forest, and 2 barns A little about myself and my family, maybe you guys can tell me if we'd fit in in Washington. I'm studying to be a Naturopathic Doctor, also majoring in psychology, as well as getting my Business degree. My husband and I own our own business, we export and distribute health foods (mostly organic and non gmo products; coconut oil, flaxoil, flaxseeds, chia seeds, culinary spices sugars and salts etc. ) all over the world so we ship alot of product out mostly through plane but we do ship out through boat as well. We are absolutely determined to educate America about health, foods, and the truth about our food industry. I plan to have goats, chickens, pigs(maybe), cows(maybe), horses or mules. Garden is important to me. Self sufficiency is important to me. Access to be able to to international trade is also important (our main source of income) Please someone tell me if it's a good idea for us to begin planning our move. We will definitely visit a few times first, would love to meet some Washington-ers though!
