I would go back to the coast of n. carolina. Loved it there for sure.
Maybe in Montana or Colorado... on 160 acre ranch... with a grass strip to land my piper cub on. Oh and a piper cub.
Sweet. I spent a short time in both places and loved both. Montana is where there's plenty of open space, but it does get cold there and lots of snow. Colorado, east of the Rockies (Grand Junction), is more temperate but the scenery driving through the mountains to Boulder is gorgeous.
How cold is "cold" in Montana? We usually get highs in the negative single digits here in MN during Jan & Feb. I'm so sick of the extreme cold though, I wouldn't mind moving somewhere with temperate winters. That sounds nice! Lots of snow doesn't bother me either. I like to ski.
I'm not sure how cold it gets in Montana - I suspect it gets to negative numbers like MN. I see on the news that MN has had a lot of snow so far. We get snow in NY, but nothing like MN or probably Montana. It's been very cold (for us) so far this year. Today it's a "mild" 30 right now.
True, we did get a couple good snow storms recently. They came at the worst times too, because I was still finishing up the transmission on my plow truck, so it was of no help. I had to go out and shovel our 400 foot driveway alone - otherwise our Amazon deliveries wouldn't get through. Oh no.
I drove through Montana twice and really felt that was my kind of place. The only obstacle really is moving away from family. I could probably do it, but I'm not so sure if my wife could. Oh well, the other 3 seasons are great here... it's just winter that's a challenge.
It is hard to move away from family. There's a lot of open space in Montana. When I was there, I remember stopping at a rest stop with one of those Kodak moment areas for picture-taking the Grand Tetons. Some older man in a beat up truck pulled in and asked where my friend and I were from and we said NYC. He said he was there once and it was way too crowded for him. He said he was the caretaker for a large tract of land. Every morning he would go out on the lake in his canoe and if he saw another canoe on the other side of the lake, 2 miles across, he felt crowded.
Ha! Yeah he sounds like my kind of guy. Currently, our closest neighbor is half a mile away, which is nice, but I can still see his place if I squint, so not far enough. ;)
My wife really wants to visit NYC (she's a city girl at heart). I'm thinking it'll be torture for me though - with all the people - but hopefully she'll get it out of her system. Then we can move to Montana maybe.
NYC is a fabulous place to visit, but if you aren't accustomed to having someone in your personal space all the time, you may find it off-putting. There is much to see and do here and there's a general energy to this City.
This time of year I'd take any place warmer. Other than that, I can become very comfortable pretty much anywhere.
Some big city in Europe...like London.
Being able to live "comfortably" would certainly help...
Make that Aruba much nicer.

Thank you.......again. didnt even know i could delete stuff once it went on. Have a habit of not wearing my glasses i deleted it. Wont pist it again, probably too personal
I'm living comfortably where I am right now. I've always been able to live comfortably.
Very cool. It has to be good to be exactly where you wish to be.
It is. I've worked hard to get to this place so that when I retire, I'm going to be in pretty good shape.
Ireland, probably. But I guess I should visit it first, and see how it actually is before just moving in xD
Inside my own skin
Carla that wasn't an agree or sisagree question . I can not tell you were I would like to live as I haven't had opportunity to go very many places. Being poor in Maine is all I know.
