    That's a good question. I need to look into it way more than I have.

    you can have too much stuff. Some folks pine for having a "fleet" of bikes... until they start getting nickeled, dimed, and dollared to death keeping them running.

    I retired and moved to Vegas, property tax on my condo is 185 dollars a year,no wonder so many people are moving from CA to Nevada.

    I think he should start making metal sculptures. He's an interesting guy. Fun. Talented. And that's half the battle to selling art.

    Hey MH and CharlieY.
    A friend of mine is doing the nomad thing at the moment living out of his van (vanlife) it is a culture. He drove out to Colorado to be a Lifty (runs the ski lift at a resort) if you arrive early enough in the season, they have dorms for workers and you get a bonus if you stay all season (Dec to March). He likes the perks and the babes.Maybe not so much for Charlie (but the van thing) But they probably have some resorts by Ritchie and you could go ski or break a leg while scoping the snow bunnies.

    Just a thought

    My plan is to retire on a sailboat. Have a few side incomes to support a moderate lifestyle. Somewhere around 55 year mark. The plan is solid with one small problem -never know what kind of a curve ball life can throw at you.

    This seems too good to be true. Maybe you mean per month? forgot a zero? Are you actually paying a balance due after most is paid into escrow with your mortgage payment? I guess it's possible, for instance if your condo is valued around $20,000, but I don't see it being the case for most people coming from CA. Not really any of my business it just caught my attention as I've considered moving to or near Las Vegas a few times so paying very low property tax would be nice.

    A snippet from google:
    "The median property tax in Clark County, Nevada is $1,841 per year for a home worth the median value of $257,300. Clark County collects, on average, 0.72% of a property's assessed fair market value as property tax.

    Clark County has one of the highest median property taxes in the United States, and is ranked 546th of the 3143 counties in order of median property taxes."

    The only good plan I think is the plan for the curveball. We know it's going to happen unlike the rest of our plans.

    That's my not too distant plan also. Had family there since the 60s.

    Day 2. Kinda slow. Did 5 hours. Had 4 deliveries. Made a pizza to take home. Washed a bunch of dishes. Eh, about what I expected. I'll stick it out a few months and see what happens.

    Then you suck as a delivery dude. There aren't any roads to my house, so to deliver you would need to fly from Fairbanks or take a snowmobile.
    Can I get some breadsticks, too?
