Ok, lets be honest. CO just isn't cutting it. I love it and grew up here, but in the next few years I need to find a year round boating location where I can work during the nights and kayak class V during the days. Places that immediately come to mind are the Pac NW and Asheville. Comments about either of these two? I've also heard people talk about Idaho, but I thought it had a snow melt summer season like CO? How about northern Cali? I'd also love to hear about locations outside of the US - FU GW. Is New Zealand year round? I know there are those who commute between Pucon, Fayetteville, and Durango, but I think I'd prefer a place to call home. Any suggestions?
