No, not the movie.

It's official, after 31 years in Las Vegas the wife and I will be moving to Florida to get old and die. We hope to be on the road by November. Although we still like Las Vegas we have seen and done everything here that we want to.

Now the hard part begins. Getting rid of everything that we have accumulated and hopefully taking no more than some clothes and the animals. Sell the house, a car, and just about everything else.

Although the actual journey will not start until November, all of the work starts now.

That sounds sad. I have been away from the board, but I seem to remember you having health issues. I hope everything works out well for you, or the best it can. At least we still have a few more months to read your interesting story of life, but you can still keep posting when you get there. Big decision it sounds like. Wishing you well.

God speed. I love Florida. Humidity can be a killer, especially in summerbut obviously you are used to heat.

Where in Florida? I always wanted to live in the keys.

Thank you for your concern, fortunately our health is currently good. I am pretty sure that I will still be on this forum daily.

Not sure yet, we are looking for houses between Clearwater and Ft Myers. The wife has informed me that we will be living on the Gulf side of the state.

I visited Boynton Beach on the Atlantic side every year from the time I was a toddler until the early 80痴. Back in the late 60痴 early 70痴 it was farmland, mango trees, orange groves and 1 lane roads.

Good times. When I went back years later, it was 4 lane roads and every inch of farmland was gone.

Good luck on gulf side. Probably better than east coast.

Florida is a good choice. In some parts, you can稚 swing a dead cat without hitting a casino.

Best wishes.

Yep. Lots of work ahead, but worth it.

My wife and I did it- got rid of everything and moved 1100 miles to SWFL. It's fabulous.

Mine will be about a 36 hour drive if we don't take the pets, much longer if we do.
