    Yeah that won't work, pard. The board works on HTML - Hypertext Markup Language - you need a link. You need to either use the image hosting here on this site or an off site image hosting website that gives you a link.

    You can click on the image icon in the menu above the message window...... and it will ask you to upload a picture from your computer. That's the easiest way other than using another image hosting website that will give you a link.

    You are talking about the Bay Area. I live in Huntington Beach, an upscale community in Orange County. We have a three bedroom home that is much more than 800 sf for around $900,000. Nice neighborhood, excellent schools.
    I am quite happy to live in a more expensive area to avoid having seven months of winter. My preference would be no months of winter.

    Good God... $900,000.00.... are you SHTTING me... if I sell out I'll have about $250,000 tops to spend, and in suburban Florida that will buy one hellova a nice home.

    Cal is just absolutely in outer space as far as home prices. Pretty much the same thing in Montana where my sister lives. They bought their house as a fixer upper almost 45 years ago for a tad over $20G, and now it's on the Montana registrar of historic homes and it's worth almost a million. The land value in Montana has sky rocketed BECAUSE of all the people selling out in CA and moving there. Problem is, they either buy or build, and when they build they build huge mansions and then decide they don't like Montana winters and want to leave, so there's this gluten of huge mansions in Montana for sale, million plus, and it just fucks up the land prices for everyone else.

    My home here, I have an acre and a half, a three bay, two story shop, heated, renovated, and a small house, paid $79,500 for it, but this property in Reno where I came from would be worth $350,000 easy. A bare acre with no road, power, water, septic, nothing, just land, in Reno goes for $125,000.

    Exactly why I have never ever thought of living up North.. Winter is the season that I truly loathe.
    Southern born and bred, live in winter conditions near year round, rather be dead.
    Was bad enough being raised in Northeast Arkansas as a kid, in the 50's, 60's and 70's.
    Something in my nature, my genes, tells me that cold weather, heavy/snow/blizzards are an abomination.-
    Moving farther South, even down to Florida is a great plan, my sister moved to Florida last year.
    She always hated the cold too. --Tyr

    I've not spent much time on Florida's southwest coast, but plenty time on the Gulf in Florida panhandle. I LOVE IT!
    We were stationed in Jacksonville, Florida for 11 years. We loved it!
    I keep trying the wife that wet should move to southwest Florida. About ten more years in the PNW and hopefully after real retirement, we'll get to move to Florida or Texas.

    I worked with a guy, in the Navy, in Connecticut. He was from Ohio. He absolutely hated snow. He was getting out of the Navy. When asked where he was moving to, he said, "I don't know. I'm going to tie a snow shovel to the front of our van and drive south. When someone says, 'WTF is that?' I'll know that I've gone far enough."
    I always loved that answer!

    That's true... the humidity can be stifling, and since it never freezes, the bugs are gargantuan, the biggest spiders I've ever seen in my life, and fleas and cock roaches are a real problem. Never heard of 'gators being a problem around Tampa, but I know you have to keep your eyes peeled in other places in the state.

    I've been giving this a LOT of thought, about ALL things I have here that I wouldn't have in Florida. Here in Wisconsin I have 250,000 acres of DNR land to go play in that's just a couple miles from me, and there's millions more all over the state. I have friends that own 500 and 600+ plus acre farms I can go hunt or shooting on, and that DNR land is going to open up to ATV's and UTV's. That's one of the cool things about Wisconsin, there's a lot of land. I have no idea where I'd ever go shoot my guns in Florida, and I hate ranges. I don't like being around a lot of other people shooting guns that I don't know. Having LAND to go play or shooting on is a big deal in my book. Another thing is, I have friends here that I have known for 30+ years. They're old, dear friends. I used to bartend here at a bunch of different places way back in the day, so I got to know a lot of people, and in small town Wisconsin, you just get to know a lot of people, I don't know if that means anything to anyone else, but that means a lot to me. I like having old friends that I know I can trust under any circumstances. Starting all over making new friends seems like a daunting task at my age, since I don't really trust anyone I don't know.

    So... after sleeping on it and much thought, I think the best thing for me to do is go back to my plan to buy a nice trailer, one with a bathroom and small washer and dryer, and just go down south each winter for a few months. And if in doing that at some point I decide that I would like to just live down there, then move.

    One way or another, my days of spending winter in Wisconsin are going to come to an end.

    Now that sounds like a plan, T. And you can then go on adventures anywhere you want.

    It's probably all that Global Warming.

    I saw on TV you all had a little snow up that way, too, 10-12 inches. I bet that squashed the daffodils.

    I have a strong preference for:
    4 distinct seasons
    Lots of trees
    Proximity to the ocean
    Not many bugs
    But most of all...
