Right outside Washington DC 15 minute drive. Might move to Salt Lake City going there next week Nov 15th for 8 days for work and to see if I want the position. If anyone has anything to say about SLC I would love to hear it. I am very nervous about moving to a small town. I have always lived in or right out side a large city IE London, New York, San Francisco, Washington D.C., and Philadelphia.

Compared to the cities that you mentioned, Salt Lake is small. But it's population is just under 200,000. It is predominately white with the bulk of the population ranging in age of 20 to 45 years. I have been there on business serveral times and have found it an enjoyable place. I think you will find it comfortable there. The one thing I don't care for is there prejudices towards black folks and non mormons. On the plus side, I understand that the wheelin' is great in that state. Have fun and be safe on your trip.

200K people and thats small? My town is 40K, and I think it is a bit big to be comfortable. Whenever I have to go to LA or bakersfield I wonder how someone could be content with no space and lot's of people.

Happy Valley, Utah! Honestly, the people are great there in SLC! The LDS and racial comments above are just wrong; Happy Valley residents are more concerned about how you might think about them. In every group, there will always be racists and miscreants. I'm not a mormon, but I have only good things to say about the people who are LDS. Yeah, they may be a bit misguided, but so aren't a lot of other well-meaning people. But, again, they're pretty good folks. SLC is about 60% non-LDS. I've lived there for a few years; personally, I wouldn't want to live in SLC, again. But, It's not because of the natives.

Two things that I would point out about Happy Valley: salaries/wages and job opportunities are low; and it gets very cold in the winter and stays cold for a long period of time. An inversion/ atmospheric layer lays in the valley for weeks at a time causing a brown cloud of airborne contaminants.

Sunder, a lot of people are not comfortable camping alone. Too many people, today, are not prepared to take responsiblity for fully supporting themselves, and are totally dependent on the services provided by city governments and commercial businesses.

No I think it is more I don't want to be board out of my bloody mind. Or have to deal with small town mentality. Not to mention a poor economy and bad schools.

The economy and school's arenít too bad here... A lot of my current knowledge on car's I got at a High School ROP auto class with 15 kids in it, then the more at the local JC. But, if you like certain entertainment that big city's offer, you won't really find it in small city. On the other hand, every night (when it's clear) I can see the Milky Way. I have 20 acres I can ride my dirt bikes on. I can park my jeep out-front on blocks as long as I want. I can test flex/jump my jeep on my own property. I can build and fire potato guns..... ETC. I just feel the freedoms living on the outskirts of a small city easily fill up the boredom gaps...
