Yes, the car is pretty hard to give up. I still have mine, even though it is quite unnecessary. I should sell it. Or not.

Anyway, the problem with living in a rural setting is that when you get older and need access to medical care, that could be a problem. For that reason, I do not see myself selling my city home. If anything, it will be the high-country home that I may not be able to enjoy in my old age.
I agree if you go much west of were I live medical care gets scarce, but there is a good hospital in the town and also in a town still in the hill country 20 miles away. A medical school is about 70 miles with the full suite of hospitals. If your in a bad auto accident you get choppered to the Level 1 trauma center there.

The cost of parking the car in Manhattan was too much, so my nephew left his Audi at his parents, and asked my son to run it every month. That gave my son the idea that he wanted one of his own.

And other than medical care, in a rural setting I would have problems getting wild caught shrimp, let alone kaffir lime leaves to make some slightly exotic dishes.

PS. Plus for air travel, that would be a 3-hr trip one-way to the airport, compared to 20 min (15 min in the evening).
