Dh has a San Jose company that is pretty heavily pursuing him for a position (or two). It just kind of fell into his lap and now there is a lot to think about. We are currently in a semi rural area in the Midwest and know that if this turns out well for us, it will be a HUGE HUGE change. For starters, the COL difference will be a huge shock, especially for housing.
I am trying to get a feel for whether or not we will even be able to afford to live in an area that offers what we are going to require, and then what we would like. We are a non-vaxing, homeschooling, gluten-free, organic eating family. We know that we will have to forget being able to have our chickens anymore because we could never afford land where that would be ok, I think. It is very important that we live in an area with a good school district in case we need to stop homeschooling or want to stop.
I have been directed towards the San Lorenzo Valley area. Boulder Creek, Scotts Valley, Felton, Brookdale and Ben Lomond. Thoughts? :)
