Looking down the road (next few years) to take an early retirement, and I'd like to be where the weather has longer winters/falls and is a few degrees cooler all around than the Philly burbs. I thought about New England, but don't want to be such a far drive from family.

I guess what I'm looking for will be peace and quiet. Don't mind doing a longer haul for groceries and most of my other necessities (clothing, books, films) are purchased online. I do, however, require a safe environment and sure would love a bit of woods about me. Developments are okay, I suppose , as long as the homes have some space between them - although I certainly realize that most developments these days aren't designed that way.

Isolation does not bother me - as long as there is ambulance service in case I should get sick. I did see, on a map, that my particular church has branches in Strousburg and Albrightsville as well as Mt. Pocono, so that would be cool.
Any thoughts?
