Curious, I've looked at retired living in TN, mostly for the boating potential. How does she enjoy the cold-ass winters, hot humid summers and only having maybe four months of the year to enjoy the outdoors ?
My kinda younger wife's going to retire from an awesome CA job in a couple of years, so I'm looking for our retired living 'Holy Grail' almost daily on the web.
Been in Havasu for 26 years, wouldn't consider living there full time due to Summer assclowns, sweltering summer temps and lack of medical.
Love our AZ mountain ranch, but no real medical within 200 miles, plus should I croak, property up there takes a while to sell --- don't want to leave my wife trapped.
So seriously, we can afford to remain here in CA, but I'd like to leave and have a home & dock on the water --- just don't know where to go --- YET
I do certainly enjoy this subject being discussed here on RDP and enjoy reading all the points of view --- thanks
She loves the seasonal change but is not a boater.
Cold and hot sounds like Texas, lol.
I’ve had other co workers move to North Carolina and say it’s more mild winters where they went, some with small lakefront property.
I have over 100 relatives in MT, half snow bird to AZ for a reason. I will have a paid off home in Ca and be an AZ resident in retirement.
Snow and old age don’t do well together from watching my relatives lol.
Had a few co workers retire to MT only to relocate to Idaho for being closer to medical services as they age.
Havasu needs to up it’s game in the health care industry, hoping the influx of baby boomers raises interest by the med industry to improve services there, time will tell.
