Hello Bruce!
<I have narrowed it down (if you can call it narrow) to one of the following: 1) ME, NH, VT, NY (upstate)>
I am glad you included upstate NY in your list! That's where I finally ended up. Housing costs are such here that I could afford to buy a house and pay the mortgage, taxes and insurance with my V.A. disability award. This is a truly gorgeous area and has four seasons. It isn't necessarily a great area for young go-getters, as opportunities seem limited; but that doesn't concern me much! I know that my sons will be off to higher learning and/or the military once they finish high school in a few years. In the meanwhile they are enjoying the change to a bucolic life-style.
Perhaps you will be one of my neighbors in the foreseeable future.

Regards,

Grumpy
