Hello. Please help me here. I am at witts end.

I want to move. No more Pittsburgh for me. I would like to move some place where it is WARM, all the time. I am talking "ever-summer", "never-winter".

Here is what i want.....

My first, and only priority is that it MUST be warm: warm in the summer, warm in the winter. I am talking like 70's+ during the day. I would prefer no lower than 60's at night, but i could handle down to the low 50's or high 40's at night... but that has to be a rarity.

Some place where the humidity isnt THAT oppressive, i don't want 90 degrees and 85% humidity. I think this rules most of southern florida out... as i hear the summers are "extreme".

I would prefer to NOT have to deal with hurricanes, strike 2 for florida.

I understand this is blasphemy... but it doesn't have to be a gun friendly state. I can make due with one of whatever they think is "legal" for home defense. The cold weather... is literally killing me up here, so guns are of no use to me... if i am not physically able to use them.

I was thinking Hawaii maybe, or maybe AZ, i dont know much about the west coast.

In terms of employment.... I can honestly say... to be warm... i would gladly be a garbage man. I will find something to do, it doesnt matter to me what it is, as long as i can keep a roof over my head.

You have no idea how important your health is... until it starts to go. I would give anything.......

have a good one.

Arizona, but I hear they're full.

Seriously. Arizona, Tejas are probably the warmest.

Spent some time in Az over the past year to see if it were truly full.

The vacations I planned happened to fall on gun show weekends.

Couldn't buy anything though, but a tshirt

Well its January 6th and it is currently 82 in Phoenix where I am right now. Coldest mid-day average I have witnessed since I moved here over 4 years ago have been in the high 50's. Summers suck, but the other 8-9 months are awesome. I'm out riding my Harley in a t-shirt or at worst a sweatshirt and BBQing when my buddies in San Jose are cold and wet.

I think Arizona (pro gun state) or California (anti gun state) is it. I don't think we dropped below 65-70 for a high this winter here in Phoenix! It was unseasonably warm. It also doesn't rain a buttload here so your firearms won't rust! From what I understand from a gun standpoint, Hawaii is horrible. California and Hawaii both have high costs of living.

Hawaii
So Cal
High desert of S. AZ
Sea-Tac/Vancouver if you don't mind the dampness
Some of the Aleutian islands stay warm during the winter due to warm ocean currents.

Most moneyed people migrate north and south depending on the season. If I had the dough I'd winter in Guaymas, MX and summer in Vancouver.

Hawaii's Climate

The Hawaiian Islands have a moderate tropical climate with gentle northeasterly tradewinds and warm Pacific waters almost year-round. Temperatures vary little from place to place, except at higher elevations (see "mountain conditions," below). The average annual temperature of 75 degrees Fahrenheit (23.9 degrees Celsius) fluctuates only a few degrees from summer (May through October) to winter (November through April). The recorded temperature in the state has ranged from 12 degrees F (-11.1 degrees C) near the summit of Mauna Kea in 1979 to 100 degrees F (37.8 degrees C) at Pahala (on the Big Island of Hawaii) in 1931.
Rainfall
Unlike the temperature, Hawaii's rainfall varies tremendously according to location. The highest amount of rainfall is usually at moderate elevations on the windward (east) sides of the islands and is due to moisture-laden oceanic tradewinds. Leeward (western) locations are drier, because they are shielded from the damp winds by mountains.

The lowest rainfall in the state is at Puako in leeward Hawaii (Big Island), which averages 5.7 inches (145 mm) of rain per year. Mt. Wai'ale'ale on Kaua'i is considered the "world's wettest spot," averaging 486 inches (12,344 mm) of rainfall per year.

Mild rain and wind storms are more frequent during Hawaii's winter months (November through April), but they generally clear within 24 hours. Although severe storms are uncommon (such as hurricanes, or downgraded hurricanes called "tropical storms"), they do make landfall in the Central Pacific, on average, every eight to 10 years. The state's last hurricane, Hurricane Iniki, was in September 1992, causing an estimated $1 billion in damage. Most of the destruction was on the island of Kaua'i. The state's annual "hurricane season" — when these storms are most likely to form in the Pacific — is June through September.

Water Temperature
Hawaiian waters are inviting year-round, averaging 74 degrees F (23 C) and reaching close to 80 degrees F (26 C) in the summer months. Surf conditions vary year-round according to seasonal storms in the Pacific.

Mountain conditions
Hawaii has mountainous regions. At higher elevations (such as Mauna Kea on the Big Island, Haleakala on Maui or Koke'e on Kaua'i) the temperature drops an average of 3.5 degrees F for every 1,000 feet of elevation above sea level. This means that when it's 80 degrees F on the beach it may be only 50 degrees F at the 10,023-foot-high summit of Haleakala.

During the winter months (November through April), it's likely that the Big Island's Mauna Kea and Maui's Haleakala will have moderate to heavy snowfall. While there is no formal ski area in Hawaii, residents do occasionally sled and ski on Mauna Kea's slopes.

Winter temperatures on Mauna Kea range from 25 to 40 degrees F (-4 to 4 C), but wind chill can bring the temperature to below zero at the summit.

Average Temperature, Rainfall, Humidity
• Average January temperature range:
Honolulu: 65 to 79 degrees F (18.3 to 26.1 C)
Hilo: 63 to 80 degrees F (17.2 to 26.7 C)

• Average July temperature range:
Honolulu: 73 to 87 degrees F (22.8 to 30.6 C)
Hilo: 68 to 83 degrees F (20 to 28.3 C)

• Average annual temperature:
Honolulu: 77 degrees F (25 C)
Hilo: 73 degrees F (22.8 C)

• Average annual precipitation:
Honolulu: 23 inches (584 mm)
Hilo: 134 inches (3404 mm)

• Average annual snowfall:
Honolulu: 0
Hilo: 0

• Average number of days per year with appreciable precipitation:
Honolulu: 102
Hilo: 282

• Average daily relative humidity:
Honolulu: 63%
Hilo: 75%

• Average number of clear days per year:
Honolulu: 90
Hilo: 30

Yes, but its a dry heat.

Inside.

Where the summers are good, the winters suck, and where the winters are good, the summer sucks.

That is why there are so many "snowbirds". It seems half the population here runs to AZ in the winter.

i thought honolulu would be the easiest place to start because it has the most number of people. what about an apartment complex? are there any ? are they cheaper?

what does that mean? seriously... i would appreciate it.

i did some research, there is no chance of CCW and mag limit for a "hand gun" is 10 rounds. no class 3 either.

yeah, i noticed you HAVE to be a resident to get a gov job.

For temperate weather, I'd have to agree that the coastal areas of Southern California would be hard to beat on a year-long basis. However, you need to first hit the Lotto, be willing to put-up with no responsible taxation and spending, a gloomy outlook of 10 million new arrivals to California within the next decade (most of them will not be taxpayers), and then of course, the gun issue. I live about 4-5 miles from the coast, the price was right and the weather is fine. Oh, I was born in So Cal, but I left the area for 12 years and returned ... the one thing that struck me when I returned home was the incredible materialism.

the other islands are more kickback ,alot of time the streets will roll up at 7 to 8 pm and earlier . honolulu is a big city with lots of people and alot of riff raff . work is harder to find for a new person on the other islands atleast a liveable wage , but like anything you stick with it and youll be able to make it happen .

gettin a job right now should be fairly easy on oahu . if your unskilled plan on minimum wage to maybe 10 maybe 12 per hour if your lucky . so now that you make 10 bucks an hour plan on workin 2 jobs to pay the rent of an apartment of lets say between 1000 and 1500 hundred a month.and yes there are lots of apartments .

ok lets talk about the white thing . if you know how to carry yourself you should have no problems . there are alot of good people of all races here , but my experience is that the white guy gets the shit end of the stick most of the time.
thats just my 2cents , like it or not thats the way it is . i hope it will be different for you .

i notice that you didnt mention anything about women or beaches , is there a problem in that department .


on the web look up honolulu advertiser its the local paper .

good luck , your gonna need it .
oh ya i forgot one thing , this place aint part of the US of A as far as im concerned
