Yes Neon-it is a huge thing to consider also.
Maca is an electrician.
GG is a Custodial Supervisor for the school district.
Mimi is an office manager for the local office that handles state funded day care assistance to families in need.
(I don't work-I homeschool the kids).
Maca would prefer not to be IN a city-He'd prefer 5-20 acres of privacy.
But for work purposes and open-minded socializing-close enough to drive to a city (1-2 hours) is a good plan.
Don't mind snow-just need shorter winters (6-9 months is too much) and preferably warmer weather overall.
I don't think California will happen.
Would love to go to Canada, but I don't see that happening.
How would one even DO that, move to Canada....
