Bingo. If you're in a position where it is possible and you really have nothing to lose (which based on your initial post it seems you don't), then why not take the chance? Other people from this very forum have done that exact same thing (wasn't it pretty much Mig's situation when he moved to phx?) and been successful. Others, like MegaMatt, made the leap, enjoyed it for a while, fell on hard times and ended up returning home and finding success there. Life is a risk sometimes brother.
here it is in a nutshell. if yer young and have no chains attached to ya, come on out and take a chance. what do you have to lose?? yer hometown ain't goin nowhere and u can always move back. everything else is subjective and hearsay. experience it for yourself.
