I found this post here, via a link from here. But it's a good question.
What I'd like to know, though, is about you.
- Why do you live where you live?
- Where would you like to live?
- What is keeping you from living there, really?
I live in Effingham County, Georgia because I like the quiet country atmosphere and the people who live here. I like having a lot of open land and woods around me. I like the fact that owning several guns is considered NORMAL around here. I like the politeness and the good manners of my neighbors.
If I left here, I would move to Costa Rica. The only reason I DON'T, right NOW, is because I have family obligations that keep me here. But once those are gone, I'll reconsider where I want to stay. Costa Rica is at the top of my list.
It's a beautiful country and I speak enough Spanish to get by, plus I know a few people who could help me with the relocation hassle.
That's where I intend to live one of these days.
Hi there! I just found you. This is the coolest page yet! I absolutely hate where I live. I too grew up in Southwest Mississippi and have been here for the last 32 years. My husband and I are hopfully going to be moving in the next few months to Charleston, SC. I too am surrounded by lots and lots of guns. I wouldn't have it anyother way! I own more than my husband does! LOL! By the way, you look just like him. It was really freaky when I saw you, I thought it was him! Keep on keepin on with your thoughts! I LOVE EM!
You know Rob, you can't take them with you, the guns I mean. Maybe we can to some horse trading when you make that move?
I ended up at the driveway to hell (Elmira, NY) because my first marriage broke up. Now that the dog has apparently eaten THIS marriage (and spit out the nasty chunks), I need a new place to run. Preferably, some place where the bags under my eyes, and the fact that my breasts point due south, will be looked upon as sexy treasures to behold, instead of questionable visual material.......
If I had my dithers, South Padre Island, Texas....boat, fishing pole, tequilla..
I CAN bring guns to Costa Rica. It's a monkey-jump, but not impossible.
I live in Germany because husband is military but when we retire it's gonna New Mexico or Colorado...either one will do.
Firearms ownership is quite simple in Costa Rica. Hell, you can own fully automatic weapons if you start a "security company" and jump through the necessary paperwork hoops.
