Yes, all people who drive funny live here. And all people who live here drive funny. It's something about the orange juice interacting with blue hair dye.

Re: biting bugs

My folks used to live in Sebring. Between the little old ladies (and gents), and the truckers on US27, it was dangerous as heck...

Or, as my dad would say, "these old people can't drive"... :P

Have Funds, Will Retire

As in many other considerations, you can't beat the west. Though you can find mosquitos, go high enough in the mountains or 10 feet from shore in saltwater and they are gone. Damn few in California too, no matter what elevation. I guess Alaska has world class bugs, but outside of that it is easier to enjoy the outdoors here- of course you have to avoid floods, avalanches and similar annoyances.

Re: biting bugs

When I went to Maui in the summer months there were very few bugs. Perhaps I was just lucky but it was heavenly.
