Is this the year you're making the retirement move? Where to, and why? Is the plan working out well so far?

Hi Riverbird, I'm not retiring or moving until 2018, fingers crossed. Have you decided to stay where you are?

Yep, till the new baby turns 5. I'll be pretty old then.

Yes, still planning on Staunton, Va. Or possibly a little closer to Charlottesville, Va.

Retiring mid January. We've already bought a house in East TN (Tellico Village). Sure hope it works out like we have it envisioned. Our dream was to live on a large, clean lake, but still be near civilization. We're putting current house on the market in a couple months. Not looking forward to the "moving" part, but it's a necessary evil. Exciting times tho!!

I'm still researching. I've now added Pennsylvania to my list but have narrowed it down to PA, TN or Nevada. The last two because of senior housing, PA because I've been researching my family & my father's family came from PA. I want to explore the area they came from.

Retire at the beginning of March and will be moving from CA to the Northern Rocky Mountains.

Why? Much discussed. Briefly, lower COL and greater personal freedom, (from a 'nanny state' to a libertarian one).

Plan unfolding fairly well. Only glitch is the amount of time it is taking to downsize and pack.
