Could use some suggstions from the crew .... Now that SunFlower has finally retired, we're finally, seriously, considering relocation out of Michigan. Currently, it's a solid 'buyer's market' up here. The problem is that there aren't any buyers! There is a light at the end of the tunnel, and it doesn't appear to be an oncomming train. According to indicators, the market should balance out in about 2 years, and might even be seller friendly by the 4 year mark. That's OK, as my retirement plan is not vested until then and this will give us the time to do this right. So, ..... Where to go? We are both sick and tired of snow, but we do want four seasons, as long as the white stuff doesn't intrude. Other restictions ... Well, SunFlower doesn't want Florida (where DD and family live); and I just can't see the Arizona area (where DS and family live). Neither of us is interested in doing a big city thing. Want grass, not cement painted green. Want a skyline that isn't dominated by buildings. College towns hold no interest. Want to be close enough to major cruise ports that we can reasonably drive (not more than 16 hours of road time). Since I'm an Army retiree, a major military base in the area would be a big plus. So crewmates ..... Any suggestion?
