We moved from Bainbridge Island to Portland last year to be closer to grand kids. One thing I particularly miss about the Silverdale area is the depth of the health care professionals. My analysis is that they are x-Navy and once stationed in the area never want to leave.

Very popular, especially with aircraft carriers and aviation wings. Lots of homesteaders there.

My former dentist is top notch. Former Navy health care professional who once remarked that submariners dental issues are priority concerns.

Wanted to update. DH is retiring Feb. 3, 2015. 2 more days to go. It took him awhile but finally saw the light. After retiring we are going on a retirement trip in our RV. So excited. We have to wait to make sure we get our new insurance cards with Cobra in the mail. His thoughts are he is "semi-retiring" and going to look for something part time or start a business when we get back from our "no time line" trip.

Congratulations! We took a two month RV trip this past summer during my sabbatical. We had a great time and saw so much of the the USA and Canada. You will have a blast.

Where did you go on your trip? We hope we will have a great time. Never had the time to "take time" until early RE.

Lake George and Lake Placid, NY
Quebec City and Montreal
Canton, OH
St Louis and Branson, MO
Route 66 sights on way to Flagstaff to see Grand Canyon and Sedonna
Vegas and Hoover Dam
Reagan Presidential Library near LA
Yosemite and Sequoia National Parks
Napa Valley / San Francisco
Northern CA coast to see Redwood trees
The Columbia River Gorge
Banff National Park and Calgary
Mackinaw Island and other costal towns in MI
Fallingwater


10,700 miles of relaxation and fun in the motorhome....

KMyer, thanks for your response. Think I will print your list and use some of these places to go to when we leave!
