Atlanta. There are some really nice suburbs as well as nature surrounding it. If you want something closer to the Pacific, go with Northern California, but not San Francisco. It's at least a six hour drive further up the coast from San Francisco before you reach Oregon, and most of that coastline is beautiful. Something near Santa Rosa might be perfect if you still need a city nearby.

If you go to Miami, it’s not old at all.

I live in Huntington Beach atm. Surfing is great. Snorkeling is a bit sparse unless you go to Catalina island, but Orange County does have horses. I also do not have a car, and don't see the need of getting one if I can help it. We just came back from a month in Puerto Rico and the Virigin Islands. Would live on a boat if we could and travel to each island working from the boat if we could. I saw you were also in the Caribbean, perhaps that might be an option? I would also check out Oregon along the coast or just north of Marin County in California.

If you want to snorkel that much then you're probably looking at Florida, Hawaii, Puerto Rico or the Virgin Islands in the US. Other places (Texas, Mississippi) have fewer spots (Possum Kingdom State Park and Gulf Islands National Seashore, respectively). Socal is cool (Anacapa, Catalina and LaJolla) but cold.

Colorado. I love hiking and got the opportunity to visit Garden of The Gods and hike part of Devil's Backbone in 2017. I still can't get over it and want to go back so bad.

Nashville or Chattanooga. They both have everything but snorkeling, but you're only 6 hours from the beach by car or a 1.5 hour flight. Plus you're in a state with no income tax. If you're in Chattanooga you're close to some great kayaking/white water rafting on the Ocoee and Fiber is a public utility.

Hey y’all - I have a large amount (think $20K +) of credit card debt. I recently finished grad school and have enough to pay it all off, but a lot of my money is in stocks, mutual funds, etfs, etc. Should I just liquidate and pay down the CC debt ASAP? Should I consolidate the CC debt into another loan? Curious how folks have thought about the right balance of debt vs investment.

Question about mentorship: in formal mentorship relationships (for ex. Where your mentor is a partner you work for and there is no personal friendship or friendliness), how often would you expect to meet/ talk to your mentor? And what kind of issues do you think should be discussed or not discussed? For ex. If I’m facing a particular issue while working with another member of our team, or I think my bonus needs to be extra good this year, are those topics that would be appropriate to discuss?
