Re: If you were moving to the U.S.,

Still Florida: Tampa Bay. Sarasota Bay. Charlotte Harbor.

I think the West coast much less intense than the East coast. Good luck!

Re: If you were moving to the U.S.,

Cesium is our biggest worry from Fukushima. The good news is that we are all together with it--we are not alone. The bad news is the long term effect on the gene pool--aquatic, human, etc. San Francisco has so much to offer.

And yes, the PNW is great--just get a heater.

Re: If you were moving to the U.S.,

The funny thing about the Fukushima reactor stuff. We are much more likely to get anything from there, not in the bay area and its not even a topic of discussion here. The thing that is a topic here is all the tsunami dunnage that is washing up on Washington ocean beaches.

I'm right with you on this, and I've spent a number of years on the West Coast, all the way to Alaska. I wouldn't even have made the thread if it wasn't for the drought and radiation problems in that part of the world. We're receiving much different information here in South America than people in North America. Closing the anchovy season early, orca problem in Puget Sound, and many more similar stories concerning wildlife, ....but I repeat, I'm not saying all of this is caused by the increased radiation problems. It may be something else. More research is needed, but the NOAA says they're not doing any testing. Tepco lying, and also admitting to dumping 300 tons of radioactive waste into the sea each day.......or is it 3000 tons? 30,000 tons?

Realtors have never seen an exodus of movie stars like they've seen in the last couple of years. The biggest film studio in the country is being built not in Los Angeles, but in Effingham, Georgia. The Tonight Show is moving back to NY, or has it already? I dunno.

Like I say, my mind is open, I can change if new data comes in, but I think we need more research.

If it were me, I wouldn't care, but I have a young wife and her three kids.

Re: If you were moving to the U.S.,

The only wildlife issues here are that they closed the sport Chinook fishing season here this year. They say due to high prespawn mortality but the Indians get to keep netting the rivers. The only issue here with orcas is we had 4 new calves born this year.

Re: If you were moving to the U.S.,

You can add one more issue; this made big news down here in South America.

This is not the PNW, but I say again, I'm not attributing this to Fukushima:

Re: If you were moving to the U.S.,

I'm 68 now and I went thru the process of deciding where my sailing " Home Port" was to be 5 years ago. I chose the Chesapeake Bay area, specifically Annapolis, after looking at both Florida coasts for several reasons and I'm still happy with that decision. The Chesapeake offers over 5000 miles of coastline to explore while providing magnificent sailing conditions in the spring and fall. It is a 36 hr. run to NYC and the Long Island Sound gateway to New England for the summer. It's 120 miles to Norfolk and the start of the ICW to head south for the winter. I single hand all but the run to / from NYC from Annapolis. All the rest is easy day sailing to great gunkhole and populated harbors. Why limit yourself to one area? Variety is the Spice of Life! ... what more could you ask for?
