Hi Ovid,

I stopped looking for places to retire to for the moment and focusing on building some raise garden beds.  I understand how and what you are going through. What state do you live in? Send me a private message if you like to talk more.

Good morning James,

Hope you had a great Christmas and a wonderful New Year.  How do you private message on here, because I do have more questions for you about the places you lived in Washington.

Thanks Will for the post.  I do like the Klamath Falls and Roseburg areas of Oregon.  I do need to do research on Oregon's tax base for retirees.  The common thread I am seeing is the availability of water.  I know things will change greatly in 10 to 15 yrs, but at least I can start looking for patterns in climate, geopolitical, and other issues.

Hi James,

There are so many questions I could ask of you.  Is the price of land high, what is the quality of medical service there and how long have you been living there.

P.S.  Thank you for the information.

Thanks Oddo Da for the different prospective of moving out West. As I little kid and as an adult I have always wanted to move out West. Maybe it is the Grizzle Adams in me. It might be silly of me, but I hate paying to use a toll road.  That is one of the reasons I have not explored Eastern Oklahoma.  I believe it is time for me to adjust my thinking on that and explore that side of the state. You are correct, taxes are not that bad and cost of living is pretty cheap compare to some parts of California where I used to live.  It probably be easier to move my life partner to Eastern Oklahoma that up in Northern Idaho where the winters are tough.(He has not experience snow deeper than 2 inches. He has already him and 6 to 10 feet of snow is not going to work.)

I took a quick glance at your web page. Do you offer tips on the proper food to eat to lose weight?  I fell down a flight of stairs yesterday and relyzed I am not as young as I believe I was.  I do need to loose about 50 lbs and get back into my yoga to keep my mind and body in balanced. Any suggestions would be helpful.

Hi Mike in Seattle.  It is so refreshing to know that there are other like minded gay men out there that way to live a simpler way of life.  I am retiring in about 10 to 15 yrs and looking to purchase a homestead in the Washington area.  I used to live in Yakima a few yrs ago and fell in love with Washington State.  I have been looking at very small town on Hwy 12 called Packwood.  The trick is getting my husband to move there. He will follow me anywhere, but he is not to sure about the winters. You see, he has never been in snow deeper that an inch or two.  What are some of the areas and prices you have been looking at?

Thank you Dave, that is good sound advice.  I need to slow down a little and not stress on it.  I know it will happen.  What part of the country you live in?

Thank you for the suggestion Stephen.  I have been through Oregon on the I-5 corridor and the views are amazing.  If I could find a piece of land and someone to work with we to buy it, that would be great.  I am thinking about a contract for deed.  That way the seller would have a steady month income on the property and if I miss 3 payments in a row, they keep the land and the monies I have paid on it.  Of course there needs to be legal paperwork to protect the seller and me.

Hi Miles,

Thank you for the welcome and reply to my question.  I was born and raised in North Louisiana which has a lot of Pine trees.  I have be thru Arizona, Nevada, and New Mexico on the I 40 corridor.  I do like the desert areas, but I need trees.  I dream of some vacant land, but not to sure how will be my psychical abilities will be then.  I still want to build my dream house with a lot of passive heating and cooling systems in place.  My mind changes daily on living in the mountains or the high desert.  I just would like to start buying some land and have it paid off when I retire.  All I know is I do not want retire in Southwest Oklahoma and I want to be near some type of mountains.  

I hope this is a start to answering some of your questions.

I will be retiring in about 10 to 15 yrs and I am looking to retire on 5 or 10 acres somewhere in the Western United States. I have been in the chimney of Idaho and the Western part of Montana, both places I really like.  Any suggestions of a state and town with low taxes and farmer friendly?
