Ms. Alicia, I find this blog amusing and interesting. You have stumbled on the Central Coast, better known in this world as Pismo/San Luis Obispo. This is not the Ozarks. In fact, a lot of people living here have chosen to relocate from so. cal. and the bay area. The beauty of the coastline, oak covered foothills and vineyards is world class. Delicious seafood, bbq and wine is everywhere. We have given up smog, bumper to bumper traffic and stress, to live the slo life here!
For many, many years providers have been stopping in this area and many have chosen to relocate here. The area is provider friendly for many years and others have supplied you with hotel information. Providers who do well here are dependent on their menu, price point and Attitude! The latter being most important. On the surface, it appears that you would be a good fit for this area. Given your menu, price point, reviews and experience.
I would suggest that life is an adventure which must be experienced. The choice is yours.
If you choose to embrace life and venture beyond, then stick with NS verified hobbyists and book a trip Thursday to Sunday to experience all the Central Coast has to offer. Post on NS what days you will be here. Wishing you the best.
