Default Relocation To New Mexico

After much thought and discussion plus great feedback from others on this forum, we have pretty much decided that our relocation from Indiana will probably be somewhere in Arkansas. By doing so, we'll keep the things we've grown to love since childhood ... namely, the hills, trees, greenery, vegetable garden, familiar critters, etc. New Mexico was beautiful when I rode through on a motorcycle venture, but it may not be exactly what we're looking for as a retirement home ... aside from the beautiful climate and mountain vistas.

Best of luck as you acclimate to your new home.
I'm considering relocating to New Mexico, I have lived in Chicago, Texas, Alabama and Arkansas. I'm going to NM because of the dry climate since I suffer from arthritis and the humidity makes it worse. I'm also an artist and I love the art invironment that one breaths in NM. Arkansas is really very nice and the cost of living is much lower than in NM. I lived in Hot Springs and I loved it except for the humidity, there is Hot Springs Village a few miles out side Hot Springs that has been built for retirees, it's a gated community and it has many amenities and nice homes. I haven't decided what part of NM I will chose, this weekend I'll be travelling to Las Cruces to check that region and in April I'll be going to ABQ and Santa Fe to check that area too.

Good luck finding a new home with a more user-friendly climate. Making a move for better health really makes sense since it may provide a better quality of life for you.
