    Florida is no paradise, either. I'd rather sit on the sofa than go to the beach.

    I do plan on doing a couple vacations to the northern midwest and rocky mountain areas to get a feel for the areas.

    You need to go sit your butt down on a Kayak and fish the coast for huge redfish, snook, and trout... or the lakes for huge bass. :-) Fish the spring/summer, and hunt the fall/winter. And like pointed out earlier, just wait til February and you can tell everybody up there who has been snowed in for the last two weeks that you had to break down and put on a jacket since the temperature got down to (gasp) 40something at night.

    You will never have to deal with shoveling snow, or rock salt eating your car up, and people up there will laugh at you if you complain about paying a $200/month electricity bill because of the heat mid-summer, when their fuel bill is $4K+ for the winter.

    I admit to being biased though... I HATE cold weather.

    Our heating bill is not anywhere near that expensive.

    I'm with you. I can't WAIT to get my butt down South again. I'll put up with the heat EVERY DAY rather than the $4-6,000 fuel oil bills I get every year.

    I was thinking the same thing. At that cost I would install a wood fired furnace (or boiler) or even electric heat.
    When our governing officials dismiss due process as mere semantics, when they exercise powers they don’t have and ignore duties they actually bear, and when we let them get away with it, we have ceased to be our own rulers.

    I lived in a place that I really didn't care for four years. Counted the days til it was time to leave.
    Very happy to be back on the Southern Plains of Texas. Wyoming,
    Montana, Idaho, Utah, or New Mexico are the only places I would leave the republic for.

    Every place has its advantages and disadvantages, Do your research, plan ahead and make it happen. Even if you spend some time there and change your mind - at least you will have answered the question of ?What if?

    Aren't you a L.E.O.? Seems like that would be an easier profession to find employment with just about any where you cared to go?

    Certifications don't always transfer from state to state, so you may have to retake an entire course for qualification (~3 to 6 mos of school fulltime/part-time). I believe most states don't allow you to merely take the state exam without first passing through an entire subject course administered by an approved school... but yes... if you have a good resume with experience, it's generally easier to find employment once you have your certification for a new area. Lots of competition in some areas. I know a local agency that advertised for ~25 openings for a sponsored academy, and received over 1500 applicants on the first day alone.
