We tried very hard to locate a house in Washington for us to retire in where I could support my family on my pension. We were not successful in that search.

I retired while living in Italy, we decided to return stateside to settle in rural New England. Mostly for the lower COL.
CT is the biggest downside to New England. Place is a snooze.
