    Eventually they get to states like NY where the government pay is better. Can't say I blame them. The word is out that now is the time with the open border and I would do the same if I could do nothing and milk the government instead of living in a troublesome country with no future.

    They're actually going to the south and Midwest now (for low skilled jobs) ... the rest of the country is getting a taste of what the border states have had to deal with for years. It's good to spread the "wealth".

    Do you have a radar that tracks illegals? I prefer rc controlled helicopters with infrared cameras to pick up on the illegal hot spots. I've noticed a trend. They go where the pot of gold is.

    Nah... I'm referring to the illegal grows around Norcal. When discovered and raided, they're typically tended and guarded by illegals working for the big cartels south of the border.

    Legalization will fix that. It's a huge problem causing environmental damage.

    Somewhat agree... If it's legal here though, it will probably attract more growers from outside. There's no one right answer, unfortunately. As far as use goes... It's less injurious than alcohol.

    A majority of doctors are no better than the drug dealers you see on the streets. I read an article stating that more people die from prescription drug overdoses than from heroin and cocaine combined

    So what you are saying is because prescription medicines area available and prescribed for a specific illness and people ignore how the drugs are to be used or do not secure them and someone else uses them, it is the fault of the doctor?

    Yeah, that argument has a lot of logic but like the man said, if it's on the internet, it must be true.

    Good lord this thread has degenerated rapidly.

    Personally, I don't care where anyone lives which is more to the point of the original post.

    Doctors are handing out these prescriptions like candy and making junkies.

    I think the point of the thread was that California was the best state in the union, right?

    "Doctors are handing out these prescriptions like candy and making junkies."

    Would you please submit the original source for the above statement so I can check it myself?. I would not want to accuse someone of posting opinions disguised as facts if they can supply the original source material.

    I trust integrity is not asking too much of someone who posts something on the internet.

    Please let me know if wanting to verify a statement is asking too much?

    What you post may be entirely accurate and I would consider myself further educated if you would provide what I request or you can indicate that what you said is only your opinion. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

    Marin County is a great spot to live. Small town atmosphere that is close to a major metropolis for culture, jobs, and expensive meals. Over 55% of the county is protected open space. It sucks for single track riding but it makes it hard for them to patrol everything. The riding is year round and I can get to most local trails within 30 min of road riding. The road riding is world class as well. There's nothing better than turning off your laptop and riding 30-45 minutes and not see a house or person in sight.

    A big difference between Marin and a lot of other communities in California is the driving. In the South Bay, San Francisco, LA, or San Diego, you have to drive a lot farther to get to things. It takes 30 min just to drive to a grocery store. It's nuts. Traffic drives me crazy.

    Perhaps it's a little expensive but what else are you going to do with a million dollars. You might as well buy a crappy house with it to store your bikes.

    The rock climbing in Marin could be a LOT better. It pretty much sucks. When I climbed a lot there was a local gym, Class 5, but that closed and now you have to huff it to the Presidio. Outdoor climbing is limited to Mickey's Beach and Turtle Rock. We can make it to Lover's Leap or Donner in less than 3 hours and Yosemite in 4 1/2. There is no better place to be a climber than Yosemite so I'd call that a huge win for California.

    Oh ya, the politics sucks too. Damn yuppies, techies and hippies.

    Sorry I interrupted the static and returned to the original topic.

    That's why I chose to live in Bishop, where the climbing is amazing and the mountain biking could be better, although during 5 months of the year I can poach Mammoth after work (40 minutes away).

    I love living in central PA. No one knows or thinks of us when they think mountain biking. It's like having an entire state of secret stash trails. Everyone who comes out once comes back. I predict it will become a more popular mountain biking destination, but it will never be so popular that it loses that 'secret stash' feel.

    Hah I'm from central PA too! I've been mountain biking all over the country and some of the most technical trails I have ever descended were in PA.

    I have to say PA is the east on steroids. Raystown may flow but Rothrock will kill you and the Jim Thorpe area seems to be slipping off every ones radar these days. Yes in deed, PA riding does rock.

    My Norcal cousin came east on business once and road PA and said it kicked his expert level arsh. When I rode Norcal with him, I was all smiles because I finally found a place that I didn't have to worry about crashing around ever corner but those damned climbs were a bit tiresome even if the weather was perfect most of the time.

    Every place has its good points as long as you can just get out and ride.

    Why does everyone worry about the welfare recipients when we should all worry about the super rich and large corporations?, they receive way more money in the way of tax breaks and subsidies, more money than they need, as the saying goes," the rich get richer, the poor get poorer". We middle class should be pointing up and crying foul, not down, but at least your making the conservatives happy when you do.
    I know the welfare system is broken and it needs fixing, but giving more money to the rich is ridiculous. I hear that rich people and large corporations keep America going by employing more people, which they do, but mostly out this country, they also create more jobs, again out of this country, we get the shaft, they get the green.
    The mayor of the town I live in( I like where I live in Ca.) owns a 20million dollar private jet, owns a software firm, I can respect that, but he just won the primary for state assembly, awesome!, another rich politician making decisions for the poor-middle class, he also attacked liberals and unions. Sure won't vote for him in November.

    Sounds nice but count me out for the tough technical stuff. I'm in for the fun and not split my head open. I'm in NY but hate driving far so I take what I can get in my area.

    Cairns Australia. I can ride out my garage to the Smithfield MTB park that hosted the UCI World Cup XC and DH (World Champs here in 2016) and also to one of the oldest DH runs in Australia (Kuranda DH). 30 minute drive to a bunch of trails that ride through World Heritage rainforest. 1 Hour from another great park called Atherton. Dozens of other local tracks within 20 minutes drive. Riding all year (as long as you don't mind being drenched with sweat and rain in the summer). Oh yeah, almost forgot awesome beaches and this little thing called the Great Barrier Reef.

    Where I live is flat and boring apart from the sand dunes and no one in their right mind rides on a sand dune unless they have a fat bike. However within 2 hours drive I have 7 trail centres 4 ranges of hills with thousands of miles of trail and an airport 30 minutes away that has cheap 2 hour flights to the Alps and the Pyrenees.

    Oh and the Tour De France is starting an hour up the road in 2 weeks time and it goes past my Grans front door. "Hi Nana we have just come for the weekend" "what do you mean theres a bike race tommorow we didnt know anything about that".

    California is a very beautiful state and I am very sure the trails there are top notch. Too bad the state is ran by people who want to turn it into a huge Detroit.
    I don't use Strava. Don't need an application to tell me I am slow because I already know.

    I hate having to drive an hour just to get to a trail with no scenery. I'm almost at the point where I will need to go out and buy a road bike of some sort.

    Yet the economy is bigger than any other state and it boasts the leading tech companies in the world. And to top it off Moody's just upgraded its credit rating ... and our houses just went up a 100k in the last year.

    I like that I can ride out my front door to a trailhead 7 blocks away in a major urban area. I wouldn't want to live where there were not easily accessible trails; I'd hate, example, having to drive an hour or more to the closest trail.

    For those who want to gas bag, bloviate or you just have to SHARE about politics, rage against the machine, and generally whine about the Awful General State of Things, there is a great Off Camber (off topic) forum to post your stuff. It is listed alphabetically on the mtbr.com drop down menu under "O"......As a useful guideline, if you aren't posting to this thread about the riding where you live and why you like it, take it elsewhere.

    Thanks in advance.....

    That would be me and it sucks not being near trails, but life goes on. I'm lucky to have a lot of things in my life, but trails aren't one of them. O well.

    I started this thread, so I say my vote counts for 2. If you want to talk about why my, or your or any other state rules or sucks due to politics, religion, drug laws, etc. then go for it.
