Whats your Opinion? HELP!

I have a stable job where I live... only problem is that I barely make enough to rent an "ok" appartment.

Now I found a job where I could work what I want to be doing as an IT Administrator.
Only problem is that It is #1 in a different state. (which I dont mind cause living costs are way different over there)
As well as the fact that I only have 6 months as a Jr admin.
I beleive with a bit of patience I could do everything required of me and most likely much more.
This job would give me more money and put me where I want to be but I almost feel as though I may not be ready yet but I do ultimatly want this position and dont want to let go of something which could turn out to be the best (or possibly worst) decision ever.

HELP!!!

    1. I believe so
    2. Job market is probably scarse
    3. Cost of living is low Utah
    4. For the work I do I believe I am pretty much as high as I can get
    5. Not sure

    Don't accept a job that you're not qualified for. By qualified I mean that you should be able to perform 80% of the tasks listed for the job. No employer wants to teach you how to do a job from scratch. The only reason they train you is to show you how they specifically do stuff. But you should have a good idea of how the task is done or you will look bad or even worse you will be let go shortly.
