Why Dave Baker Moved to Julian
We used to live in Escondido and would come up to Julian every weekend to go hiking. One day we were having breakfast at a local restaurant and decided, “We really love it here. Why don’t we move here?” We drove around and found a rental that afternoon and put down a deposit. We tried to keep the kids in their same school in Escondido. That was a mistake – that lasted about a month. After that we enrolled them in school in Julian.
I had to drive down the hill for most of my work back then. Now all of my work is up here. I found a way to make it work.
I knew we made the right decision when we were standing on the porch one night – the stars were just blazing across the sky! It was so quiet. In the city it’s too bright to see the stars.
