    Ha Ha. Neat article. The test told me NM (medium green) - I live next door in AZ (dark green). I just moved here about 1.5 years ago and I really like it. I moved from a dark blue state and I'm so glad I left.

    Spend some time here and you'd like it.

    But they got the survey wrong. It put me in North Carolina. Too bad northwestern Nevada is better.

    You don't have a choice you can't take the test anyway. You live in Hawaii didn't you read where it said Alaska and Hawaii excluded because there wasn't enough people who responded to the survey.

    Haha! I didn't even make it that far in the reading part. I like where I live anyways.

    Besides when you live in paradise, why would you waste your time taking a stinking survey?

    NM for me. I've actually always been interested in that state as a home grounds, too. But I know absolutely nothing about it.

    Not even the NW corner of the state? I like the idea of being able to hop on over to 3 different states w/o much traveling and I like the idea of living in the upper (but not too high up) elevations. I'd miss the ocean terribly though and could be the end of me.

    Woot! Colorado for me, it says. But I'll stick to living in NM and visiting CO. Maybe become a four-corners states snowbird when I retire? Hmm.

    ^ Diamond Peak, Mt. Rose, and Sky Tavern are all in Nevada, but less than an hour from the state line at the north shore of Tahoe. So you could count them too.

    a bogus test.

    California is at least three different states (interior, coast, mountain/desert). More depending on how fine grained your definitions.

    What does the fact that California has several different geological areas have to do with the test. Did I miss something here?
