There have been previous posts on Lasik surgery and how it affects climbing. For this thread, all I want are quick survey type responses:

1) What year did you have surgery? Did you have Lasik or PRK?
2) What (if any) problems have you experienced?
3) Overall, are you happy you did it?

US Skiers/Alpinists- If you could move anywhere...

If you could relocate to any mountain town or *near* mountain town in the continental US (yes, that means Alaska too!), where would you go?

This may be a hypothetical question for you but it isn't for me. The mountaineering bug has bit me hard and once I finish grad school by the end of the summer, it's say goodbye flat lands.
