Travelling from Connecticut towards California with a pomegranate??

It is a little helpful to mention where you are starting from, etc.

I think OP means "pomeranian" dog.

Do you have a job lined up? If not, bring at least 6 months worth of living expenses to cover rent and utilities, food and clothing depending on what state you pick, etc. I would double that for most places in California.

Yeah, I was kind of pulling his leg a little with the scarcity of information. Wasn't sure if he was talking about an Australian location or the USA or somewhere else. Pomegranate! ;)

Hi yesterday i decided to step away from CT due to the weather taking place today there.

I am still in the process of moving west. Im not sure just where yet.

I think the guys are right about the scarcity of information. Generally when looking for travelling companions it's a good idea to fill out your profile as much as possible. Give people an idea who they'd be spending time with, your interests, tastes.

Then what's the timescale of the trip. How long, departing when. Does CT mean Connecticut? This is a worldwide forum so CT means nothing to most of us. Could be Cape Town or Canterbury. Pom is usually Aussie speak for Brits.

What will you be doing along the way? Sightseeing, hiking, fine dining, cheap motels or fancy hotels? What's the transport - hire car, your car, bus, train?

These are honest questions:

What does CT mean?

What country are you talking about??

(Filling out your profile helps a lot.)

Assuming you are from Connecticut and heading west in the USA with a pomeranian, I'll jump in here. If you can afford Connecticut, you can afford California. If you want to avoid virtually all weather, try the mid-state to northern coast. It's early spring there all year. Our youngest lives in that area and when the heat gets to us, we drive over for a visit. We lived in Connecticut for several years when my husband was in the US Coast Guard (many many years ago) and have since lived in New York, Ohio, Indiana, Missouri, North Carolina and for the last 30 years in California which we absolutely love. If politics bother you, California is pretty liberal in most places although we have our conservative hotbeds.

If you like seashore, deserts, mountains . . . California has it all. If you want the cost of living to go down a little, Oregon would probably be better. If you're not concerned about having city culture within driving distance at least for day trips, Idaho is gorgeous but very conservative for the most part. New Mexico is spectacular if you don't require a seashore. For me, Arizona is overpopulated but perhaps you are much more social than I am.

I'd avoid the midwest because of weather, especially tornadoes. The northwest states have a lot to offer but you do have winter there. Check out the Sacramento, California area or the north coast of California above San Francisco . . . way above. Good weather, reasonable cost of living, lots of places to visit within an decent drive . . .

Good luck and take good care of that pom.
