    That's all you feel close to here, is your parents?

    About the only place I'd consider moving to would be Costa Rica. I hear it's very friendly to US ex-pats.

    I went to school at the University of Northern Michigan in the UP. I'd love to live there. Great place.

    What do you call those people - survivalists. I wonder how far from reality they are. I mean, if that which they fear comes upon us, they're going to be the only ones who are prepared.

    No, I have some very wonderful friends that I would miss dearly as well. I kinda include them in my family (along with siblings, etc). If I ever moved out of the country I would do my best to visit as frequently as possible.

    Having lost my daily quota of hugs, I can see where that would suck (never getting those hugs anymore) but you'd have the net, and if you all had video cams you could shoot the bull for as long as you wished.

    Close enough. Stayed at a BB in that direction a few years ago. Did a mystery dinner. Something else the wife loves.

    I never got to visit, but I hear it's absolutely beautiful.
