Yes and no. I'm not opposed to working on the road. Hell, I already do that; however, I don't want to permanently move to someplace where I have absolutely no family or friends to speak of. I don't feel like being an island.

Totally depends on how much more they were offering and the cost of living. Right now I live in MI and make more than the national median income which has a lower median income than the average in the US, so I get more bang for my buck. Now, if they offered me an extra 10k to move to New York City I'd actually be taking a hit.

In MI I can lease a nice car, get a mortgage on a house in a decent neighborhood, pay off my student loans, put money away for retirement, and pay in cash for my masters degree. In NYC, even with an extra 10k, I'd be living in a 200sqft apartment with just enough money to eat and maybe save a little on the side.

Now, if they offered me an extra 10k to go to Nashville or Ohio, or offered me an extra 50k to go to NYC I'd be open. All depends on where you start, how much they offer, and where you're going. Don't be somebody's mook!

Living with the parents allows me put a majority of what I make towards my savings for a down payment on my first house, plus all of my friends live nearby.

Therefore, I'd need at least a 50% salary bump to even consider it.

I would!

I think it'd be good to find a decent job elsewhere and to have enough money to take care of oneself!

As long as it isn't California. I could probably easily make $100,000+ in California but actually be LOSING money because mortgage/rent in California is stupidly high. I can get a 2,000 square foot home where I live for around $800 a month whereas in California I may be lucky to get 1,000 square foot condo for around $2,000 a month. I wouldn't move to California unless I made at least $150,000+ a year (I heard that to live in Silicon Valley comfortably you need to make at least $120,000 a year).

Yes. And for women too. Preferably for both.

In fact a woman WITH money who'll keep me as her not-so-trophy house husband would be ever better.

I live in San Cristóbal, a city in the border between Venezuela and Colombia. Since the economy in Venezuela is broken at every level, my family and I saved our money in Colombian Banks.(We have the two citizens/nationalities) We can't totally move to Colombia yet because a few reasons but hey at least our money doesn't melt with the Venezuelan inflation... So yes.
