Sorry Chris, but you want a job paying what you want to make in a location in which you prefer to live. I've had to move my family from California to Baltimore, then back to Tulsa, then to here in Portland, OR so I could continue doing what I enjoy, at a salary I'm happy with. My family is with me and I'm happy at home.
I have a brother who won't move from his home town. His company went out of business 6 years ago and he still refuses to move, although he could get a similar job in several locations
