I have a larger home here and 1/3 of the taxes we paid there. I enjoy watching the horses walk down our road with riders on weekends.

I make what I was in NY and hubby does too. Although I can say if you have kids-send them to private schools here if you can afford it. The “State of Chatham” aka Savannah-Chatham schools have more than their fair share of issues. Glad I found a job away from them. There is heat and humidity. It’s part of the South. Being down to see family every summer growing up, I knew all about it. Dress light and it’s all good. The sandgnats are fun-YouTube Will Smith from last year when he was filming here. It’ll give you a good laugh. Skin so soft is my friend when they are out.

It’s been a good move for us. But make visits, ask questions of the neighbors. Go different times a day to the neighborhood you are looking at homes. Research all you can. We love it here and can’t imagine being anywhere else.
I remember your posts when you were on the hunt. If I may ask what section did you decide on

Can’t believe you’ve been here 2 years already. Seems like only yesterday.

We are on the east side of the Truman heading towards Skidaway. We decided to move near the city, but outside the city limits. It’s a quick jump to get anywhere we need to be quickly. It’s very pretty out by us and we have plenty of horses around our area. It’s quiet and peaceful down where we are.
