Hi there...looking for info on WHERE to retire...
Mid-forties married couple, currently live in upstate NY, on a secluded farm adjacent to a state forest. We have horses and donkeys, and its great to just cross the fence and meander through miles of state trails. It's very beautiful, but the winters are too long and cold. We're looking to relocate to a climate that will allow us to spend more time out in nature. Since we have had to take care of the animals, we haven't travelled much, so though we could get some ideas from people here.I think we're spoiled because we are so used to the privacy of not even seeing another home around ours. We love that an the rolling hills of the area. Thought about Blue Ridge Mts, New Mexico, Oregon, Kentucky/Tennesee. California seems to have the best climate, but way too expensive for a home with acreage. Florida may be too hot for us! Thanks for any help!
