John, gotta agree with you but carry your thought to the next step to which you alluded. Too high and too cold in winter. My dream would be to go still further south and down to about 4K feet of elevation. There are some dream locations of rolling and broken hills, open and forested land - and no fleas to bother the dogs. They can't survive above 4K'. Most importantly, 4k' seems to be about right in terms of winter survival. It gets cold, yes. It sometimes snows, yes. But it usually doesn't do either all that much and the snow doesn't usually stick more than a few days. This means 4 seasons in one of the most scenic, idyllic parts of the country, good gun laws (even though they're all unconstitutional!) yet weather that isn't too gawdawful bad during the winter. If there was a prison in that area that would pay Jo anything like she gets here, with the same working conditions she has here, we'd be gone in a heartbeat.
Good to hear from you, John.

                Why would you be paying your brother after the house sells? And what does a life insurance policy have to do with doing business? I'm confused... John
