Good Tips, Thanks O'Neil.

Yes that has been a serious question on my mind lately.

I'm glad you can joke about it O'Neil.

You're still a young buck with at least ten more good years before you have to think about retiring

Your beard isn't totally grey yet. :P

Me? I have about five years to decide.

I like the West Coast.

It'* peaceful and quiet. Moderate climate year round. Ocean, mountains and Forests. Lots of lakes. No mosquitoes or blackflies. Relatively affordable. Windy fun roads.

I like Vancouver Island

I like Oregon

I like Northern California

I like being a Canadian. For that reason alone, I will probably stay in the area and turn into a snow bird and spend 5 months of the year in Yuma or Brownsville.

AND You can live in Florida where..
1. You eat dinner at 3:15 in the afternoon.
2. All purchases include a coupon of some kind -- even houses and cars.
3. Everyone can recommend an excellent dermatologist. And a superb plastic surgeon.
4. Road construction never ends anywhere in the state.
5. Cars in front of you are often driven by headless people.
6. The 4 seasons are: tolerable, hot, really hot, and snowbirds.
LMAO. Those are all SO true LMAO.

1. Actually I know the mayor of Weyauwega personally, I've done work on his Suburban, borrowed his F150, done landscaping for him, and built him a new computer, lmao. True to the enth degree.
2.LOL. Yeah. But...actually theres never enough cars on the road to have to wait more then a second to go around, so the only cars that line up are the same ones that are in the line going around said tractor.
3. hahha, how true is THAT. some days, mid summer, friggin 98*....and then at night....in the 50s lmao. not commonly, but it DOES happen.
4. Yep. Done that. But usually your coat is so huge and noticeable that you CAN'T lose it, even if you tried.
5. HAHAHAH, I've had many people ask what I thought about living in hawaii in comparison to wisconsin. that was always my exact answer. hah

1. hahah, ok...well we're not ALL old down here lmao.
2. LOL. something we were just arguing about today involved coupons and such here....lmao. complicated, but funny as hell.
3. haha, haven't asked..but I don't doubt it.
4. LOL. yeah, its certainly not as bad as hawaii was...but its no better really. right before I got the avalanche, about 5 miles of the road i take to work was being continually worked on...had a LOAD of TAR all over the car i was driving, GOOD TIMING!
5. LOL, in which sense? Driven by people with no BRAINS as well! These people have allergies. They're all allergic to one thing. Blinkers.
6. hahaha. more like Moderately Hot, Hot, Oppressive, and OMG WTF SHOOT ME NOW.

In the Midwest section, number 2 (Your idea of a traffic jam is ten cars waiting to pass a tractor) atleast where I live is TOTALLY wrong, lol. It'* funny to me how people think the midwest is low population. Ohio is #6 in population, with about 12 million people. In Northeast Ohio the roads are so congested that it sometimes takes HOURS to drive a normally 30 minute trip. So no...my idea of a traffic jam is driving on Route 77 through Cuyahoga County (Cleveland) with it'* population of 1.5 million people down to Akron (Summit County) with it'* population of .5 million.Ten cars and a tractor my ***, lol.

WJ, you ain't a Floridian. You don't even have "Flo" yet. You are more "Florisconsin".
