I am guessing that you haven't spent much time in Alabama, Louisanna, and Mississippi. Very affordable.



A week in Mississippi. Well, just a border town, Olive Branch IIRC. A year later when the Oilers were the Memphis Oilers some team could not get a rooom in Memphis and had to stay in the same place. I can bet nobody missed curfew.

Every now and then I look at bingo parlors for sale down there.

I agree, just because you live in a cold place doesn't mean that you like the cold. The beauty of thid country is you are allowed to move where it is warm. When I graduated college I vowed to never live wear it is cold again. I screwed up, I didn't know it got cold in Las Vegas. Hopefully I will bemoving somewhere warm shortly.




I had to close my windows overnite. Who wants to live in a world where one must choose between their freedoms and staying warm.

There are places in all of the southeast states that I would consider living. My problem is that I need to be close to a major airport because I like to travel every month or so. I want a smaller city within a half hour of a nice airport, that limits my options.

No.

In inter I will go places like a casino because I am still indoors. I am not going to go and stand in the cold wearing a mask waiting to get in like an idiot.

See, I ask myself, "would an idiot stand in the cold wearing a mask to get into a casino where he has to wear a mask the whole time?"

And I say, "yes, an idiot would."

So I will not do that thing.




You are asking yourself the wrong questions.

Make it 50 minutes and drive a bit faster, and it really opens up your options. Take a redeye even better.

Places with mostly good weather year round also tend to attract flocks of the given up hope type of homeless like fleas. Just about every area has itís unique positives and negatives.

Still major restrictions in most places.

People do not want to go out if they have to wear masks. ,



More people donít want to go out when thereís an out of control pandemic. Personally, and many others feel this way, Iím more uncomfortable when people are refusing to wear mask indoors where itís required than I would be going out right now if I knew everyone wore one when itís the business policy.

Yesterday went to a subway on the road, mask required to enter poster on door, some podunk hick behind me while Iím ordering my sandwich not wearing one within like two feet of me. Youíre captive there, already ordered, in a place that requires it, itís just disrespectful and confrontational to intentionally ignore it. No one is forcing that person disregarding the businesses posted rules to enter and other patrons should be able to have the expectation that people will abide by the businesses posted requirements. And they shouldnít be putting the person getting paid roughly $10/hr in the position to choose between trying to enforce it or wondering lord knows what the patron is going to do when they try after youíve seen some of the viral extreme reactions to low wage employees trying to enforce the businesses rules.

Bisbee has near-perfect weather. It even has a mural proclaiming it was named the number one climate in the USofA.
Being a mile high, it is about ten-fifteen degrees cooler than Tucson, the closest large city. Most years we have a monsoon season where it rains almost every day, but this year it never came. We hit 100 degrees one day this summer, the first time it happened in a half dozen years. A cold front this week caused me to close my windows.
The problem is it is two hours from the Tucson airport that seemingly doesn't offer direct flights to anywhere.
Picture San Diego without the ocean, the taxes and the stupid prices. You can buy a half dozen houses and become a real estate mini-magnate for the price of a typical three-bedroom in the SD area.

Exactly

The economy will be destroyed crowd can't seem to fathom that it's inevitable no matter which direction you choose.

BTW, what's happened to all the herd immunity look at Sweden as a perfect example of remaining open crowd?

Sweden was basically a whole nation of keep it open don't wear masks crowd. Now one of the worst health and economic disasters
