I left the mountians of NC for the Pacific NW. Only strange folk live here!

Heck - Oregon has no sales tax and WA state has no state income tax - also federal retirement benfits are tax exempt here.... go figure - who would want to live in a place like that!

Come to Gods country.

We live in Oxford Ms. It's listed in a lot of publications as the number 1 small town retirement area. Oxford is a small rural town except when the College kids are here (Ole Miss Rebels). We don't have to lock our doors and we have the perfect little town square with some of the best restaurants. William Faulkner was from here and we are known here now for the Arts and music.
Look it up you may like what you see.

You wouldn't want to live where I live, although I do enjoy it. Many folks don't consider the positive benefits of living on the edge of a very large southern swamp.

The best thing about a huge swamp is that it tends to be a huge heat sink. Summer heat is busy evaporating water and it makes the region a little cooler than even some significantly more northern climes. In the winter, the black water releases warmth and keeps us a little warmer, too. (Winterize? What's that?)

The BEST part is humidity. Most days, it's like living inside a cloud. We wait for it to be 100 with 35% humidity, and then we think we're in Reno... well, not really, but it's a pleasant time to do stuff outside. Whenever sweat evaporates faster the one can make it, that's very, very nice.

Fringe benefits here are alligators, gnats, snakes, flying roaches ("Palmetto bugs"), an interesting and seemingly never ending variety of other bugs in God's kingdom, and MILDEW. (Isn't that related to Penicillin?)

Gee, I'm rotten at suggesting where to settle, but the hurricanes haven't gotten the 'gators yet (or my Airstream).

Good luck!

Lamar

Lamar, where do you think I am living now. I fed the alligators in the canal behind the house for years. I have already torn down one house due to the termites eating it. It was 91 today. I haven't caught any snakes in the yard yet this year, Katrina seems to have driven the opossum away maybe because the 270 feet of fence was blown down that he walked on. The mold removal cons are going on all over the city. Great city New Orleans. BTW I live in the part that wasn't flooded. I forgot to mention the Policeman that was shot in the face twice Tuesday by a 17 and 21 year old. That is why we plan to move. We feel our son deserves better.

We are finding out many great locations. We will check out Oxford as it is not far away and we know several Ole Miss Alumni.

Yes Jim,
Ole Miss folks are the best. Not many Airstreams just ours, but some great camping areas close by. But let me warn you a little more Oxford is very slow pace I moved here 3 years ago and it took me a year to just slow down. But now i'm used to it and love the area. Much better than New Orleans. The upper level public schools are great and I'm sure your son would love to go to Ole Miss

You must be a transplant - I'm a native born Oregonian (now a transplanted Washingtonian) but I have NEVER eaten tartar sauce on my fries - chili cheese maybe....mmmm where's a Sonic when you need one?

The first three words sounded good, then you had to go and throw in that cuss word - you know the one that starts with a big C

I saw my name in the post and had to read - I think people have told me where to go before - I usually didn't like it ..anyways, I've lived in Oregon, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, Texas, Washington, Idaho, Louisiana, Colorado, Idaho, and Washington again. I definitely prefer the great northwest. It's beautiful country. Maybe I'll make it back to Oregon again someday.

I only saw a few gators in LA. I thought they were cool - but you can keep all those nasty bugs!
