    Well, Caveman Bob, you are okay, but that's the last one.

    But wait, there's more!

    Sis and CWO, you are of course in, as well.

    (Yes, I'm kidding. This is America, anyone can live where they want. Hopefully appreciating our freedoms and ideally respecting our traditions.)
    .
    We are taking a hard look that way for retirement as well, although I'm a few years further away from it. We're thinking more like 7B or 9B, rather than the south part of the state...

    My daughter currently lives in Moscow, and loves it there.

    I am semi-retired. My "young" wife still has about 10 years left to work.
    I love Texas, but not sure what we will do if we lose the fight down here and it turns against us.
    My wife hates the cold, I do not mind it. I have thought about Wyoming but she says no way.
    Perhaps we could all go in and buy an island. The DC Retirement Island.

    Sister.........We're in the "middle of it all" here in New Hampshire. In Between VT, Mass, and Maine, <<-----where it's getting to be Liberal Logic Heaven. They're flooding NH and atempting to bring the Wolves to our door, BUT we ARE fighting them off ...... Yep, it get's a little hot here (high 80s-90s at SOME times) but you've got the Ocean (45 miles from my area) and then the White Mnts about 1 1/2 hrs north. Not to mention Boston 45 miles south.... and Maine coastline.... ALSO, you can then vist me, Rock and Glock, Whoppo WEC, and several others that I have failed to mention(sorry guys) who live in OUR Neck of the Woods... Constitutional Carry here in the 3 States too..... Besides that... I CAN HELP to "Enable" you and Gramps at Kittery Trading Post where I work....Home | Kittery Trading Post
    Property taxes are a stickler, but NO State Income Tax, or Sales Tax here.

    Tennessee checks all your boxes except it gets hotter than 80 in the summer.

    Better be a big island. Most people here like land and privacy.

    A few other members here and us have sent messages and learned we are not alone! Many here are either retired or not far from it and have said they are searching for a good place to land in in the near future.

    Red flag and other gun laws knocked quite a few states out, that and taxes.

    Weather is important to me, donít want anywhere that itís hotter than 80 in the summer.

    Any thoughts?
    Well, you could convert to Judaism and go join an Israeli kibbutz. Of course, it's a bit hotter than 80 during the summer there, but the women carry guns...

    They're no worse than the Newyorkus Locustus. Posting any "early bird special" sign will draw them away from the polls and toward the signs, like zombies drawn to noise.

    And that's how it happens. A couple of cities for the Birkenstock crowd to gentrify, eat carrots and let their damn dogs wander free cause "we've moved to the country and everybody is care free and loves my dogs"....... Then comes the Amazon deliveries of meat free dog food. Starbucks pop up. Pave the dirt roads so the cars don't get dirty. And hearing the ubiquitous "why do they cook them like this here? it's not that way back in (fill in the blank)".

    Folks start laughing at collard greens on the menu or consider them quaint. Something to eat on a really wild, culinary night out. Yep, biscuits come from a drive in window and milk from a carton.

    Interesting. I didnít know of such and it was some interesting reading. Crazier than the commune hippies of the 60ís since the hippies, at least, had the excuse of being stoned. But carved out of extremely hardy stock to take on all that they did.

    Western SD is great. Summers sometimes hit some low 90s, seldom 100 (lower temps up in the hills)

    Winter can be mild to extreme - global warming, you know.

    About the best gun laws to be found (despite the ratings you see in the various lists).

    The only common sense gun legislation was written about 229 years ago.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.
