I want to move. I live in SW Idaho. I moved here because my sister wanted me to move here (I moved here from Fort Collins, CO). Then she passed away from cancer. I've been here 9 years. I am 60 years old. I am rent a townhouse. I have buried two cats here (at this townhouse), and I don't want to bury anymore. I just can't do it. So I need to get out of here. I currently have two cats, and they are both well over 10. I want to give them one more grand adventure. A new place to explore. But the question is where do I go? All I know is that i want to go East and South. I plan to day-trade the futures market for a living so I can live pretty much anywhere. I will actually have 4 (yes, 4) cats coming with me. 2 of the cats are my own. The other 2 are cats I trapped as kittens, and socialized. They live mainly outside, but they are my cats nonetheless and they're coming. So obviously i will need to have a place set up in advance before I even think about moving. It can't be just your typical apartment. It will need to be a unique place where i can let my cats outside. I think I can find such a place. But the task of picking which town to move to is the hardest part. Places I am considering are Southern Indiana, Southern Missouri, Eastern Texas. Or maybe even some crazy place like Alabama. I am originally from North-Central Illinois, It's not a place I wish to return to, and there is no family left there anymore. I know this is kind of a crazy question, but please trust me, it is legit. All I ask if for you to be nice. I don't need any rude, unhelpful comments. Thank you.

Do you have a specific area of Southern Indiana you're interested in? I am from the area and would be glad to help

No it all looks good (Southern Indiana). I like the wooded hills. How do I choose a town? All I need is a Walmart. I don't care about anything else. Except of course finding a place that is interesting with perhaps a little wooded ravine nearby where my cats can go and explore. All I can do is look at the map and wonder. Even if I fly to Indianapolis and rented a car and drove around, it would be equally overwhelming. So I just need help narrowing down a town to consider. I do have truck driving experience, so I suppose a town with truck driving opportunities would be best. Being from Illinois, I think Indiana is probably culturally the best choice for me. I would never return to Illinois because of the taxes (and democrats). I am perfectly fine with picking Southern Indiana over Texas, Missouri, Tennessee, etc.

I'm originally from Indiana and my dad farmed in southern Indiana in Washington County. Salem seemed to me to be a nice small town. Very scenic area. You might explore that area. It's all very scenic and rural.

Harrison County, Indiana would fit the bill, somewhere like Corydon.
You could also look into LaGrange & Shelbyville, Kentucky.

It's not as exciting or wild as it sounds. I trade the S&P futures index. But basically all price action is the same. Some instruments more volatile than others, but the price action is the same.

Ok maybe I will just head to Harrison County and look for a little place for me and the cats. Really dno't have much motivation to search for the right town since obviously it would take years.
