Need your help/advice please.
I need to get you guy's and gal's opinion/advice.

So here it goes.

I have been happily married for 6 years to my wife which she has 2 children from a previous marriage. All of us (both families), get along great...better than great...no drama ever. Our family is very close to my wifs ex-husbands family,...good normal folks. All of us grew up for the most part in California so the farthest we travel so see anyone would be about 1 hour 15 min.

We all live in "The Valley" in central/northern CA close to Stockton, (Shithole of you ask me),...but I digress,...anyway I have been toying with the idea of packing up the immediate family and moving out of this liberal/socialist cesspool and find another state such as Texas or Montana.

I have sat my wife down and tried to hammer out a strategy but the problem is all our family is here,...so we would be artificially isolating ourselves by moving far away.

I want to keep my family healthy and safe, (free) and I don't feel like California is a good match for our family.

Everyone says "get out of CA while you can". I can't unless I'm divorced,...then I'm alone.

Money is not an issue at this point, so that wouldn’t stop us....but it may be gone tomorrow.

Anyone is a similar situation?

Do I sit and watch the train wreck?

Wouldn't the kids' dad have some say in them moving out of state? What is the custody agreement like?

Re: Need your help/advice please.
This is why I tell my kids to make good choices the first time. Caught like you are is the proverbial rock and a hard place. How old are you? What kind of experience do you have for different areas? How adaptable are you?

I take it your wife won't budge, so, what about the kids? How old are they? genders? maturity?

You say you think California is bad fo your family, yet seem somewhat disposed to break up that family to leave. Am I missing something?

Work on getting everyone to want to move. Take a group vacation to where you think would be better. The kids need to be near their dad

Get a place under the precepts of it being a family vacation spot or resort.

Let them visit, say might be a good place to retire some day.

When shif, they WILL go....to save their lives.

We do live in a good, safe, place...I taught my step-kids to think outside the box and look behind the "curtains" for the truth. It's important that I "practice what I preach" and if I sit by with my head in the sand and do nothing, I feel like I would be failing as a provider/protector.

God bless you folks for your advice.

==================================================
This is something I had in mind,...but the place ended up being close to Los Angeles...yikes.

I may,..may be able to swing that idea up in Oregon.
Even if's a crummy little house/trailer I can fix up..hmm
Good ideas..Oregons beautiful but they really don't appreciate the Ca folks migrating there.
