Do your homework

Not sure where to move to? My husband actually did this once. We got out a piece of paper and listed the main criteria we wanted in a city/state. Then we assigned a point value to each item so we knew which things were of the most importance to each of us. We found that one time that we moved we wanted to be within driving distance of our parents. So we got out a map, and drew an 12 "hour" circle around our home town. We knew that all other cities were just too far to drive. It did help us narrow our search quite a bit. All other cities were just out of range, so out of mind.
