And so you should. Anyone who can afford to retire in their ideal place in the U.S. and pay for its health care, ought to stay there.

We can well afford to live almost anywhere in the US, but choose to live where we are most happy. For us, that's Mexico. It's an adventure and life's too short to settle anything else.

What might be the best place for someone to live in, might not be someone else's. I enjoy reading where everyone has chosen to live or is looking to move to and why? It might not be somethings I would like but love reading about it and sometimes someone posts about a place I may be considering and it allows me to gain a different insight.
So keep it up.

Yes, that's true. I tend to think only in financial terms on this subject. There are many here who could afford to retire in the U.S. Just maybe not oceanfront.
