    I can fully relate as my wife had a brain hemorrhage and recovering from that was rough. Keep pushing forward. You got something to live for.

    Sounds great! I'm considering similar. I have a few more years to go and then we are thinking of relocating to Florida, PR, virgin islands, or somewhere warm and on the water part time.
    I'm currently at $11k in property tax here in NJ and I have 1 kid with 4 years of HS left. Once he is done, the search is going to get real as I'll be almost ready to tap my 401k.
    Last year we looked in the keys and I'm headed to vieques next week for vacation and some real estate scouting.
    I also have been checking Cape Coral Fl. Lots of homes of the water for under 500k and taxes seem reasonable.
    My goal is to relocate to a less expensive area in the NJ area...(maybe Delaware beach area) and get a snowbird home as described above....and then just play guitar, ride cycles, boat/fish, and host my kids and their families (when they get married and have them..lol)

    Me too! :lol:

    Like I said, it's all good..I can work right locally part-time, and between that and my retirement I'll do OK..And it's going to free me up to be able to play my guitar a LOT more, as well as free me up to join or form a band..Since we moved out here I haven't had the time to commit to a band situation, I felt it wouldn't be fair to either myself or potential bandmates to not be able to practice and play out on a regular basis. I'm also planning on doing some writing, I'm a pretty good writer and have some ideas for at least two books. If push comes to shove we can sell and make a buttload of money on our place here, then move to a cheaper (and warmer) part of the country, but right now we like it here and plan on staying.

    I know what y'all mean about having to deal with crittters..We have deer in the backyard on a regular basis, and that attracts predators. We had a mountain lion in the neighborhood earlier this year, a moose in the backyard a while back, and my commute to work involves dodging deer, antelope, elk, moose, and bison! :shock:

    Living in New Jersey is expensive.

    I have a small house that's about 1300 sq feet.

    It's paid off but when I get my property tax bill I go nuts.

    It's a little over $2k for this quarter.

    I have about $4k of bills to pay in the next 10 days.

    I know, sell some guitars................I have 4 of them up for sale now..............it's about $9.5k worth.............no bites yet.
