F4, might be time to actually ask some of the others how they did it. I can't imagine that there is any way around the immigration rules. You may want to check to see if living on a military base counts as being in the US, it might be grasping at straws but worth asking. A few simple internet searches can give you some of the answers you are seeking.

Personally I think Cornwall is a lovely part of the UK. NOthing beats going to the pub and staggering home past the chippy. The main thing is you need to have money to be able to go elsewhere when the cold miserable English winter drags on.


I be a girl, he's a boy. Think I maybe FIRED since July 08. Mid 40s, no kidlets. Actually am totally clueless as to what is going on with DH.

DangerMouse......cold miserable english weather We live in North in Cornwall WILL FEEL like we ARE in Spain. We figure we would have maybe 25,000 Pounds a year. My wife raised 4 kids on about 12,000 Pounds within the last 4 years when I came on scene. The ex was a prat and didn't help. But in my perfect world, we move to Cornwall near the sea.....within a half mile walk of the house is a chippy, Chinese, and ohhhh so important ....and good Indian place. Spokane is not exactly the center of the hot indian food universe.
