Snowbirds is the travel term for people who live in the USA during the summer, and travel south for winter, the problem is home ownership, and cars.
Can you live without your house, and car?
World travel is easy, living in tropical paradise is easy, selling the house is beyond the powers of modern man.
Andy Lee Graham
This is so true. Americans build their lives around home ownership. For many, the house ends up owning them. When they lose their job, many stay chained to the house until they go broke instead of relocating for better opportunities.
-40 F or -40 C (only temperture they are the same) windchills here and in gadgets home town on Tuesday night - get me out of here !!!! :-)
Markmets, I know what you mean!!! -24 today in Minnesota.
Well, we do have our house for sale. While I do not think it's overpriced, really who wants to move in the winter!
We are in the process of moving to a very small (in fact tiny place) about 1 hr south of the Canadian border that we purchased about 10 years ago. Pure bliss I tell you. Ok so now help on - getting out of here for these LONG winter months :)
I'm selling my house here - i figure if worst comes to worst i can buy a nice trailer in Florida if I get tired of over-seas for 5000 dollars, and pay lot rent - Florida is God's big waiting room for senior citizens.:-P You must be going up in the boundary waters? Yes a beautiful area - but you need do need to find a warm place for winter.
Are you located in the east coast?
Yes, I am very near to the Boundary Waters. It's so great in the summer but in the winter way too long!
This is our 1st winter here. We are planning on a self sustaining hobby/organic farm with aprox 30 acres.
Not a bad idea Florida as my husband and I have checked out the Clearwater Beach area.
