    Looking at the stock market, I'll be happy if I get to retire at all; who cares where at this point.

    Retirement is a quickly fading dream for many, many people.

    The lush green hills of Kentucky seem to be calling my name. Great deer hunting, awesome bass fishing and mild winters (but not too warm) are key for me. More likely though I'll live near where my kids end up.
    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.

    The Brady Bunch list us as tied for # 5 but hopefully we can get a higher rating next year.

    No open carry yet but concealed is fine by me.

    No state income tax. Lots of golf and fishing.

    For me it's the Sunshine State.

    Me too, lived here all of my life.

    No questions here, and in this order.

    No state income tax, great gun laws, no snow, and right now...great house prices.

    I don't care! It's perfect! The weather, the people, the landscape.it's like moving back home less the mess I have to deal with in Bermuda. Plus, it's closer to Fiji and Tahiti.

    Yep teaching PSYCH 101 and spending my golden years on the beach....I'm sure I can find a way to own a firearm.

    Once upon a time, I had a very fat retirement set up. Now between hurricanes and Barney Frank, I find it necessary to work until I drop dead, and probably with taxes, etc, for several years beyond that point. I must be the stupidest person on the planet: this is the second time my government has bankrupted me. Remember the Savings and Loan fiasco? So far in my life, the 'enemies, both foreign and domestic' thing is irrelevant - all my enemies are in Washington.

    I'm already retired and at home here in the mountains of West Texas. Wife hates it though, nearest Wal Mart is 85 miles and the nearest mall is 200.

    I'm thinking Alaska. Gun laws are good, no matter where you live in the state, you have a beautiful view. The hunting is great and beings that I love ocean fishing and boats, I don't think I would ever get tired of halibut and ling cod fishing. I can picture myself living in a cozy, rustic cabin. There's something about those Alaskan waters that makes me want to keep going back. Cold you say? Who cares, that's what my wife is for.
