Portland is somewhere I've always wanted to visit, but I don't know if I'd get sick of it. And I'm a huge ocean man so that's why Hawaii is another plus.

The keys could be cool but with my luck Katrina 2.0 will come and wash me and my shack to sea.

I moved to South Carolina with pretty much only what I could carry in my car.

The drive to Hawaii might be tougher though :unsure:

I've thought of this many times myself...but never Hawai...way too many fugen Americans there!!!

I think somewhere in the Phillipines or something like that...you can pretty much buy your own island for about 3 bucks and live really really cheap.

Spent a week in Kauai once. It was very beautiful. Milk costs an ass load though.

Let's assume you make 45k in Los Angeles, in order to have a similar comfortable life style you would have to make $57k in Honolulu.

Groceries is 45% more
Housing is 28% more
Utilities is 44% more
Transportation is 16% more
Health Care is 12% more

You're better off staying put or move to San Diego. If you really want to move where COL is cheaper, move to Portland or Seattle where Cost of Living is 34% less than LA.

Whatever you do, make a sound decision and not on impulse.
