This looks like a friendly place for some advice... hoping to get some thoughts from you all.

My husband and I are in our late 40's, and are almost ready to bail out of the corporate world, looking for a slower pace, real people, beautiful land etc.

We can move to just about any place... we're not retired or rich - but willing & wanting to change our lifestyle!

Would you write us with suggestions of places where you live or would reccomend to a nice couple?

I'm an animal freak and can't wait to have my horse on my own land, as well as add some friends.

Thanks so much!!!

THANK YOU all soooo much for responding to my inquiry! You had some great thoughts, and I got some nice and informative e-mails too.

I probably should have mentioned that I currently live in beautiful Southern California, San Diego specificially. Housing prices are VERY high here and you can't even think of owning land for horses or ?

I think we're looking for small towns in perhaps Oregon, Washington, type areas. Seasons are good, but in moderation. I don't care for the hot weather or humidity. We like mountains, with lakes and lots of greenery.

Darryl & Rick you both made MO sound lovely,
I have family in Arkansas, and while it is nice and has county... it's toooooo hot for me ;-)

Looking forward to any more input! You all are great! Thanks so much.

Come on guys..

You wouldn't really be considering living here.

There's way too much sand on our beaches...

And too many puerto ricans..

What are ya lookin for? Northeast has many many small towns but still very rural without distances being a major problem. Down side cold long winters short humid summers but you can graze a horse on two acres of grass.

I'm probably prejudiced,but if you can deal with real winter,you cant beat N WI,MN,MI.We still got towns w/o ATMs :)

Now you shouldn't tease people like that - most retirees never saw a snow shovel before - they only see it in cones. But he's right, if you don't mind heaps of free firewood :)
