It was a personal Journey that led me to these questions:
Making a move? Where do I go from here?
I am a baby boomer, my children have moved on and are settled with their lives in a different state, my taxes are high, my property is a maintenance nightmare, privacy is an issue, so where do I go from here?
Things that may affect my decision to make a move are my children my health my lifestyle, the proximity to certain areas of recreation, the view from my next home, a low maintenance living situation, a high passion for loving my home, closeness to the abundance of locally grown foods and handcrafted beverages, cheese and breads and finally natural beauty and resources.
Other factors may be transportation, access to highways and airports, social interaction, walkability, golf courses, lakes, rivers, mountains, community events, near family.
