LTHM: Dad’s Still A Californian

LoveToHateMe (re: Who is your favorite ex-Californian living in North Idaho): My dad. Although I still accuse him of being a Californian, much to his chagrin. He’s lived in Idaho for 50 years, meaning he’s been a resident of Idaho for about three quarters of his life. But he’s still a Californian in my eyes. And I remind him of it every time he dodges across multiple lanes of traffic or forgets to use his turn signal.

Question: How long do ex-Californians have to live in Idaho before they are no longer considered a Californian?
