Interesting thing I’ve seen comments on over the years. Call U-Haul and price a truck rental if you want to know if people are coming or going from a state. I bet you could rent one dirt cheap for a move *to* Illinois. All their inventory is leaving Illinois.

No kidding! I’ll bet that there is an “up charge” for outbound U-Hauls from IL to help pay for all the deadheading units having to be returned for a new load.

I remember turning in the U-Haul truck I’d rented in Los Angeles when we first moved to DFW. I got to chatting with the manager about the move, and at one point he informed me that the one way cost of that same truck from Dallas to L.A., was less than half of what I’d just paid. That was seven years ago.

Not surprised to see NJ at the top as well; the taxes here are from the “before-times” (when we had decent jobs and a middle class, which have been replaced by municipal employees as our middle class). Gov. Christie’s property tax cap is helping, but there are simply too many better states in which to do business.

I’ve been saying for years that NJ will end up being illegal aliens, the permanent welfare class, and the government workers required to “provide services” (though thousands of them have been let go in the last few years due to the aforementioned property tax cap). The problem with that model, as evidenced by southern CA and Detroit, is that those demographics don’t contribute anything at all to a tax base, and the potential costs to companies and taxpayers to continue feeding, housing, clothing, and schooling them are quite a deterrent.

Peoria has become a Little Chicago. Too many Amish migrated south and are wrecking it.

Of course not...

There was an old joke, two things that scared every Texan: A Yankee with a Uhaul heading south on 35 and a Catholic with a football on News Year Day.

Hopefully not before I get there. I’ve got a little gal waiting for me in Euless. I plan on closing the door behind me when I pass South of Amarillo later this month. And I’m never going North again. As gawd is mah’ witness.

Hey, SC is high on my list of places to move from NJ to! Wife has issues with fire ants though.

Living in SC and bugs kinda go hand in hand. Any reputable exterminator will be able to handle it for you.

I’ve lived here in the woods in Aiken County (near Augusta, GA) for 10 years. Fire ants have never been a problem.

Here is an observation if anybody needs the info. Rhis is about 11 miles north of Wasilla, Alaska.

Just down the road from my house is a big laundromat, they also rent Uhaul trucks there, usually there is only a dozen, The last month I am seeing a full lot, maybe two zone or more.

By not being a regular Uhaul dealer its just a small operation. I think we are seeing an immigration trend herein Alaska, and our state wide population has increased about 70,000 from last year. That was announced this morning.

I can help with that, just let folks know that South Carolina is full of people like me, a white haired old redneck, born and raised within ten miles of the site of the first secession meeting, descended from confederate veterans on both sides of the family, baptized in a mill pond back in the fifties, Navy vet, voted for a Bush for president four times, well versed in the art of harnessing a mule but totally lacking in political correctness and don’t give a flip who don’t like it. I could go on but you get the idea, you don’t want to be around people like me. I have been known to irritate whole groups of people in a single day and I am considered very worldly, overeducated and sophisticated for this area. Skip on over SC and go to Florida. Besides me there are Coyotes, Wildcats, Bears, rabid Raccoons, drug dealers with pit bulls, Diamondbacks, Copperheads, Cottonmouths, Black Widows (both kinds), Brown Recluse, Alligators and Holy Rollers. Stay away for your own good! Oh, the weather is awful too, hot summers, hot springs, hot falls, even hot winters except for the rare ones when you have sleet, snow, freezing rain and ten degree temperatures.
