    Where would you live if health and money wasn't a problem?

    If you could live any place where would it be? I would love to live in Alaska, been there a lot. Wanted to move there in 1968 and Uncle Sam sent me Greetings and while serving meant my first wife and we ended up with 3 kids and 7 years Navy. When she died I wanted to move but had a 16 year old girl, 13 year old girl and 4 year old boy. Was offered a high paying job so stayed in the lower 48. Second wife was ok with moving, but wait till we retire. Now my health forces me to live where there is good health care only minutes away. Since snow and/or cold isn't something I can work with it is Indianapolis summers and Gulf Coast winters. It's sailing either place, no snow to get moved and temperatures 50 and above.

    I'm home.

    You probably are also, if you think about it. There's lots of snow to be moved in Alaska!

    I like where I am at. I was raised here. My wife is from here. It suits me just fine. The grass is seldom greener on the other side of the fence. Wherever you are, there you are. Your problems and issues are indeed portable.

    I've been fortunate to live where I wanted to live for all but 4 years of my life while on active duty. I'll retire in 4 years, my health is good and my wife works remotely so I may buy an RV and live wherever it's parked for a year or so just to see some sights I've yet to see. When that's over I'll come back here to live out my days.
    Here is Missouri.

    I'd move to the Grand Lake in NE OK for the summer and my second house in Vermont for the winter.

    Louisiana .

    My family moved from a town on the border of France and Germany to settle the German Coast ... an area above New Orleans on the West bank of the Mississippi River in 1720 . These ancestors spoke both German and French . We have lived in Louisiana for 302 years ... I don't have any big burning desire to leave just yet ... I hate moving .
    Louisiana is a magical place like no other , it gets into your soul and holds your thoughts and memories like a old lover ... you just can't leave her .

    where the grass is greener, of course
    if you are not living where or even how you want to be living you might want to do what it takes to make it happen.

    Long ago 1980's, planning for retirement I was warned:
    >>inflation will wipe out your life savings<<

    This plan has been in place awhile, now it's law.

    I am living in what was once the cheapest place with lowest humidity.
    (CA invaded drove up prices)(My 1600 sqft shows 300k, I should sell it)
    Today the dewpoint is 18F, in the shade 100F feels good on my hands.
    Doctors are local, walmart is a mile away, Tucson is 15 miles away.
    I grow beans. Year round.
    I am going to die broke, with ammo left over.

    What does it matter where you live, if you can't afford to live there?
    Money no object is a pipe dream.
    Reality is reelect no-one.

    Right here in Kamloops BC! Health is still good so no need to consider moving anywhere yet. Only regret is we bought within city limits and Kamloops is the permit capital of the world!

    I would probably pick either Wyoming or South Dakota right now. Alaska would be high on my list if in my youth ( mid 70’s) the stars aligned. NYS ecologically and geologically is fantastic but the leftist urbanites and crooked politicians have made it unbearable.

    Wanted to get a place around Mexico Beach, Fl, but never had the money for a place down there at the right time. With the hurricane that went through and wiped it off the map, it ain't gonna happen. I guess we'll stay in NW Arkansas, house is paid for, and climate is good most of the year.

    Can't blame you for not wanting to leave!

    If money wasn't an object I'd buy Kalifornia and sent everyone to New York.

    Key Largo in the 70's was a frostbitten yankee's dream.
    I looked again in the 80's, the reef was dead, grouper gone.
    I am fortunate to have seen the Pennecamp reef in color.
    The global warming acolytes say the warm water killed it.
    I say sunscreen and sewerage wiped out the coral.

    50 acres in the middle of Missouri or on a lake in Missouri. Enough space the neighbors leave us alone and plenty of outside activity.

    Was sent to St Louis by my company in 1989 and was retired on 12-31-2000. Company (based in Minneapolis) said we will move you back here or you can stay where you are now. "Now I said." In the 30 years since my wife and I has joined the suburban area where we live in O'Fallon. The 6 or 7 houses in the gathering support one another all the time and we check on the ones we haven't seem in a day or so. Cell phones help. Church is so great and is a part of that formula. Going to die here I guess.
