"But, hey! Tennessee is beautiful, too -- esp. (for me, at least) the eastern part. I have friends near Knoxville, up in the hills, who could live anyplace, and they choose there. I can certainly see why ... although I'm an ocean guy." MrFungi


I'm an ocean guy too but I married a Tennessee girl so here I am. We used to live near Knoxville but now we live fairly close to Nashville. This is where my wife's parents and brother were when we made the decision to move and she got a job teaching in Nashville.

"Condo prices are high -- $400-$500/sq. ft. for a nice (but not 5-star) 2 bedroom unit in Waikiki."

So let's see, that would be ~ 1,000 square feet X $450/foot = $450,000/dollars for a condo in Hawaii. Right now way out of my price range.

There are fairly reasonable condos in Florida that we might could afford but my wife has no interest in moving anywhere and she's not really all that close to retiring anyway. She likes her job and has a lot of friends there so I figure I should just make the best of it.

It's not like I'm suffering here or anything. I just dream of Palm trees and Ocean and clear water and snorkeling and picking giant pink grapefruits right off the tree and slurping them down like I used to do when I was 19 years old when I lived in Florida for a year and half before I went back to college after dropping out my Freshman year. Sigh!
