You guessed it (Let's move to Florida!!!) She visited St.Petersburg, Clearwater area. Said everyoune was friendly, but drove like madmen. A realitor told her 1,000 people a day move to Florida 'It's gods waiting room'. Well maybe , but not right away, she needs to finish her degree this august and start her masters in nursing.

One good thing about Florida is that people can move out on the highways. 80-85mph is pretty normal. 90-95 isn't uncommon. I drove back from WBP the other day and everyone was going over 90. It was great.

When my wife and I moved down from Jersey, we encountered a lot of snowbirds-parttime winter residents who had a place here and up north. I, personally, didi not want to maintain two residences. That was 12 years ago. Now we are looking for a summer retreat somewhere around easternTennessee. The summers here are brutal. We would like to get away for about 3 months in the summer. Just something to think about.

you can pretty much call it the standard to go 65 in a 45 in most areas

Thanks for replies, We are drawing up a 2 year plan to make it happen. If I can hold up my end of the deal, I'll be 45 and retired.

Hey, I just moved down here from IN. I was raised in the SE corner and went to school at Purdue. What part of the state are you in?

What hospitals is she looking at and in which department of nursing.

LMK I can help her stay away from the BS.

Ft. Wayne area, she is working med-surge right now . Home hospice or geriatrics is where she is most comfortable.

Nothing is cast in stone yet, and plans change, it's just I'm ready to see something besides corn & high school dropouts. If I see one more 18-20 year old with 3 kids , that are clueless . ...........Well you get the picture.

Hell, man, we have our share of those dumb asses too. The midwest doesn't have a lock on that, believe me.

She said there was homes (waterfront) going for 300k , but I'm having no luck finding them.

Is looking for beach house something everyone does when considering Florida?

I'm starting to feel like a newbe here at ar15.com,(How do I make that ar15 full-auto; How do I get a beach house for nothing?)

Well I guess me and google have a mission this weekend.

If you want that shack John Candy stayed in while in Florida in his 'Summer Rental' movie, you can get that for about $500,000.

I'll sell you my 5 bedroom, 3 bath, 3,200 sq/ft 2-story in a nice Tampa neighborhood about 2 miles from the water for $400,000. It goes on the market next month.

and you will not have any luck for that price. The cost of living on the water in this area is almost insane.


Hint:

Try the Engelwood area, south of Sarasota.
