I like Asheville LOTS more than Greenville. The weather is much more comfortable and there are more activities in Asheville. Here in Georgia 35K of retirement income (which includes pensions, SS, annuities, IRA/401 witrhdrawals, and other investment income) is excluded from taxes after age 62. After age 65 it goes up to 65K so most older retirees are paying no state income tax here. OTOH, much of Georgia is as hot and humid as Greenville.

Savannah. There is quite a bit to do and see here though not much camping. The cost of living is lower in the smaller towns all across the south. Many of them have cute downtowns that are pretty quiet most of the time but do have saturday activities.

People who are frugal enough to retire early are a small minority of the overall population. You are correct - many don't get it. I can't think of any way to find FIRE people as we tend to be rather discrete.

I am curious how we can meet those of like minds when we move to South Carolina...any ideas on how one can meet those FIRE type individuals [just learned what FIRE stood for today and I love it!]

Very conservative with investments. Not ER'd yet, 48 years old. Please do not take anything I write or imply as legal, financial or medical advice directed to you. Contact your own financial advisor, healthcare provider, or attorney for financial, medical and legal advice.
