What is stopping you? You can do what ever you want, sometimes there needs to be a trade off and some sacrifice. I assume your husband is a Harley mechanic or something, if there is no place to work then he gets a job at Walmart or what ever and you grow your vegetables. Do what you want and stop complaining. Everything that is in Fort Myers was there before you came, you should have done some research.

Sounds like you hate Florida. Did you know that the road is paved going back to NY? Set the plans and head back if it was so much better. If you don't then realize you are making consious choice to be here. Take it for what it is.

I guess no one or should i say some floridians didnt understand my question well of course you didnt because it wasnt directed towards you. please...the whining and complaining i am not sorry that i value my life and other peoples lifes ..and think what apparently floridians think is the norm is SO NOT you really think people should sacrifice that i guess you chose for the chemicals to be pumped through your homes walls .. explains alot...also yeah my boyfriend is a master technician how you can compare that position to a walmart position tickles me pink...ignorance is such a shame ... again maybe if i write in capitol letters for you it will sink in...IM NOT BASHING FL .... I JUST WANTED TO HEAR FROM OTHER NEW YORKERS NOT FLORIDA PEOPLE IF THEY HAVE GONE THROUGH SIMILIAR SITUATIONS i could care less what you think about me or new york, if you are a floridian and something crazy happened to you then fine ..reply thanks for your thoughts....also for your information we flew here first for a job interview this was a job transfer move but you cant really know a place until you lived there. Not all of fl is bad ... theyre are some nice places... but this particuliar area is like living in the wild west. Its just insanely morbid here. Its just my opinions and expierances. redwings you said do what you want and all that crap what the hell are you talking about did you even read my first comment my whole reason for this thread.. its not about doing what i want ...its about things that have happend to me.. my gosh what is wrong with you people?

I don't get it. I live in Vero Beach where I'm so safe that I'm bored. Everyone here is old or super educated. If it weren't for the trades people, we'd have nothing to talk about.

LOL! I was thinking about the same thing about where I live! The original poster had more excitement in 3 months than I've had in 30 years. Well, THAT kind of excitement anyway.

I've seen several posts on here that were really negative about Ft. Myers. I haven't been there in years, but I thought it used to be a rather nice place. Too bad if it's really changed so much.

WOW! Sounds like you have had a crazy time bitsburg. Your story reminded me of some of Carl Hiaasen's books. Great reading!
As for the car signals. It is the law to use them, just most people don't. If a cop wants to pull you over or they are profiling they can use it for an excuse.

I was just going by what you said. You want to live on a mountain and grow your organic vegetables you'all may have to make a few sacrifices. If there are no jobs working on motorcycles Wal-mart may be in the future as long as you are happy. You came here not because you guys always dreamed of living in Florida and looked for your little corner of paradise. You just came here chasing a buck with his new job and now you are sorry. You should have done some research rather then letting chasing a little money dictate your future.
