I think our states have traded places, except it is far too congested unlike your's and is still regulated to the point of stupidity, I'm looking to move too within the next couple of years and probably somewhere near you. My wife loves Miami which I really don't like very much so I figure perhaps NC is a good compromise. (Seems to be a lot of good radio people there too with one more coming)

I hope to be there, I had to work all weekend this spring, which was not fun especially since I knew what was going on in NH. His workshop was the high point of the NEAR-Fest for me last year.
