Re: If You Could Move Where Would You Go?


How many years until you retire? That's a real consideration. If you have 10-20 good years left, you might consider moving some place with high cost of living and high income.

Retire some place cheaper after you've built your wealth.

Exactly what we'll be doing. Nice to be able to sell for close to a mil here and move to a sleepy little town in another state at retirement.

If you're into corruption and shootings, there's always Chicago.
Otherwise I've got no real answers for you.

That's more or less our plan. Then again, we moved 30 minutes out of town and really love it. High income from work in town, but country life. Maybe when we get tired of taking care of two acres, we'll move to that sleepy little town. Being only 30 minutes out means it's still expensive. Our house is similar to a friend's in Clarksville TN but costs 3x as much.

The US is almost like 50 different countries/economies.

Don't come to Northern California. Sucks up here.


Mild winters, warm, dry summers away from the coast, 60 degree days on the coast in summer, snow 30 minutes away if you want it, more water than we know what to do with, timber for miles, great farmland, no real natural disasters, (few earthquakes), rugged, remote.

You'd hate it.

Re: If You Could Move Where Would You Go?


Well after wallowing in my own self pity for three days I shaved my lumberjack beard, dusted off my dress shoes and went to a job interview today. I havenít been interviewed in 20 YEARS! Was hired on the spot as a pm for some company here in Florida that is Texas based. Itís temporary for now and is just enough to keep the bill collectors away. Weíll see. Day one starts tomorrow. Iíd still like to move out west but with pets and my wife working for the judicial circuit here plus the fact that my home wasnít bought out from an insurance company makes staying the least expensive route. Letís rebuild this mess. #850Strong baby!!!

Re: If You Could Move Where Would You Go?


If not working I'd spend the summers on the lakes and rivers outside Reddit Ontario Canada. Definitely not the winters.

Always loved my time spent in Va.and Tn.. Worked for several seasons in Kentucky,outside Somerset,Nancy,Burnside and Jabez. Was a great time all around. Those places are very laid back,probably not a ton of money to be made but great quality of life.

If you were asking me, I plan on retiring at death. I can tinker with stuff forever basically. The building would be for my shop and to live in. Had the chance 14 years ago, but my ex thought it was stupid (should have paid more attention to that clue).

Re: If You Could Move Where Would You Go?


If I could move anywhere it would be onto a Palmer Johnson ketch, sporting a retractable keel, and self furling mains/jibs with all sails controlled by an auto helm. Mount my scuba compressor on board, and tour the world. Bora Bora would make for a nice stop Now people keep telling me you have to play the lottery to win it



Congrats on the new job position

Re: If You Could Move Where Would You Go?


Coming from our climate bro, I couldn't see making it out in the Rockies. I love it out there and if I ever did move there it'd be Idaho, but that **** is some kinda cold. I would think Virginia or North Carolina would be your best bet. Also Greenville SC is booming and beautiful.

You're gonna wanna take a long hard look though. Lots of logistics to go through.

I was hired 18 years ago and 12 years into it I became licensed, partnered with the previous owners son after the recession, partnerships didnít work out. Went out on my own in the spring basically as a sub pouring concrete because I didnít have enough capital to build new construction as the prime contractor. Lost three of my five guys and they were the good ones. Whole roof assembly failures. They were lucky to be alive. They were forced to move. Left me short handed severely. Ended up getting this gig to get by and go from there. As the world turns so do the days of our lives? Lol. I have to meet my ďbossĒ tomorrow to assess school damage. Should be a change of pace. Collard shirt. No running a power screed or finish machine. I could literally make pennies at what I love and be happy. I somewhat cake from money. Had a lot. Lost a lot. Had a lot again and lost a lot currently. Finding what makes you happy is the key. Letís see how this goes. Iíll keep yíall updated.
