I want to live where the women are friendly and the law leaves you alone.

LogicsHere, so very sorry I will double check to see who received the PM. Was trying to reach eb65614617 who posted about the GA area we are interested in.

To amcoffiebean:  Got  your message through AARP email.  Sorry but I wouldn't even know how to find a private message and unfortunately I wasn't the person who wrote of Georgia.  I would not go that far South.  I'm a four seasons person so NC would be the furthest south I'd go to live.

eb65614617, I've sent you a Private Message here in the forum after reading your comments about Hartwell GA! We are investigating a future retirement move to that area and would love to learn more about your experiences there!

I am staying in my house because it is comfortable and close to my grandkids!

The answer is simple: MEXICO. My wife and I are proud to be among the estimated 1 million + US expatriates who have chosen to live in Mexico. The cost of living is significantly better and friends tell us how expensive and impossible it is to live a decent retirement in the US. Despite news reports on cartels and violence, we feel safer here than we did in the United States. The current administration's policies are mean-spirited and immigration matters handled in an inhumane way. One of our best life decisions was to retire to Mexico.

Hope you like hurricanes! The USVI was devastated considerably after Irma and Maria.

The Charleston area is very expensive, unless you are rich.  Traffic is horrible, and I have not found the people too welcoming.

We wanted the seasons, but not too cold any more. Moved from MA. Wanted affordable home. Not nuts about heavy rains in the appropriate months,but they do, indeed, bring beautiful flowers. Wanted to be no more than a day from the ocean. We picked KY and even after almost 20 years, have never looked back, We are in SW KY, only 20 miles from the TN border and 125 miles from Nashville. Love it here. Won't ever go back.
