Response to Taverner (Original post)

37. I worked for a company where my job involved a lot of traveling.

We often spent three weeks out of every month away from home, a week in a city was the average duration. Once we were all sitting around drinking and talking about which city was the best to visit. I was new to the job, but all the old-timers said hands down, Vancouver was the best. San Francisco was a close second. When the company had to send someone to Vancouver, it was handed out as a prize to the best performers.

I've never been there, but hope to visit some day. I have spent 52 years within 100 miles of San Francisco and visit there several times a year. I do enjoy California in the more underpopulated areas, like where I live now. 30 Years of Silicon Valley smog and traffic was enough, although there are plenty of positives about that place, too.
