So im about 10 years from being able to pull the plug and retire. If you could pick a spot or spots where would you pick?
I'll have plenty of income and health insurance so im covered there. Don't mind winter with in reason same for heat but you can keep the humidity.

Pennsylvania doesnít tax any retirement income ( 401k, 403b, pensions, annuities etc ). Lots of good health care facilities.

Iím told Pa. is second only to Florida with senior citizen numbers.

I know it's not what you're looking for but White Marlin mentioned tropical. I hope to be able to do that but in closer to 15 years for me. I know it's not everyone's cup of tea but my wife and I are looking at retiring abroad. We may just go for the winter months but who knows for sure. I like Mexico. I always read the most affordable places to retire when one pops up on a website and Mexico is usually close to the top. We both want to be somewhere tropical and we usually go somewhere like that for a vacation every winter.
For some ungodly reason people think Costa Rica is awesome and we've been there and didn't care for it. I like to be able to flush toilet paper and that's only one of the issues with there. That and the US Virgin Islands (St. Thomas) have been the 2 places we don't care to go back to.

In the US what about Tennessee? That seems like a nice scenic state.

We hate winter so this one for us is perfect so far. I hope it stays that way for the next 4 months. No snow here in SW WI and NE Iowa.

^^^^ The average cartel ransom is now over $13,000 so sock some cash away in case you speak English in public and someone is looking to score the $6000+ it takes them to get across the Rio. Even my Hispanic ranchers no longer go to Mexico.

Who's gonna get you back when they call your kids for ransom?

I'm headed to the swamps to retire. The moccasins and gators will ensure no retiring Yankees nearby.

Friends of ours went to Ecuador. Free health care and things are dirt cheap. The little town they are in all the neighbors are US citizens that have retired there. They love it !!!

The WEST= Wyoming is beautiful, Idaho is really nice Montana is sweet never seen western MT but western Pa is something special. Never been to Maine but I'd put that on the list. But been to Alaska twice and would move there in a heart beat if not for the wife.

No kids Mark so I guess we'll be stuck with the cartel. We've been on vacation in Mexico several times and have never had a problem. I know it does happen on rare occasions but we also aren't ones to go downtown and sit at the bars all night. We don't leave the resort after dark and are usually in our room shortly after. Of course I'm up before daylight so I get good chairs by the pool too. I know retiring isn't going to be living at a resort. We'll check to see what areas are safe before we do anything else. Northern Mexico where your Hispanic rancher friends go won't be where we were planning on going.

Other countries are on the list too.

Every Californian that can has already moved to Idaho. Fastest growing state in the union. In ten years, will be wall to wall Californians, and I suspect the politics will reflect that.
