12. Thanks for all the great insights FT! And everyone for that matter.

We have friends in Canada that would gladly hook us up with jobs if we were looking to join the wage earner class again. I am also not interested in owning another home. Yard work is a huge waste of time and maintenance costs and property taxes and just things are just anchors that hold people to one place.

I am reading about the minimalist lifestyle right now and minimalism seems like the best way to achieve freedom from the things that anchor people down. We are dumping the house we have lived in for 22 years and most everything that it contains after raising three kids.

I do have friends in Portland, Eugene, and Seattle that I have listened to about the real estate situation both homes and rental. They tell me that I should not live in rural areas. The entire PNW seems to be urban liberalism and rural conservatism. Pretty much like the Midwest. We are looking for more urban rental spaces at least initially.
