If you have been in Oklahoma for that long, move to L.A. Is going to be a major change. I have never live there but I have been out that a bunch of times. Traffic is a huge huge difference. I mean, in tulsa, at 5 in the afternoon when traffic is at its worst is about the normal out there. If you are into guns, the gun laws are way way different out there. A lot more limitations. The weather is always nice, which is a plus, but everything out there is more expensive. Before you perminately move, I would go out there and stay with your friend for 2 or 3 weeks and make sure. You might love. There is a reason why there are so many people out there, but me personally, i wouldn't live there if someone was willing to give me a house for free. Just not my cup of tea. Although, I feel the same way about Dallas and Houston also. They are just too big and too many people.
