I’d consider moving to Texas. Actually, I am considering that. I’ve got a friend who would let me rent a room in his house. Cheap.
You got 49 states to choose from but employment is Always the issue really isn’t it.
People make fun of Indiana, the state you have to drive through to get anywhere, but I’m so glad my ancestors stopped driving here in the middle. I think the brady bunch scored us a 4, and we’re workin’ it down.
We’d love to move to TX (top of the list) but we are so on the verge of financial collapse - having no employment since Jan 2010 -that we can’t do it. Horrible catch-22 can’t get a job here but can’t afford to move.
BTW, just read a story in the Army Times - there is a ‘sister’ program for military people to ‘assist’ with a sudden (deployment) PCS (orders to move) who own homes that they must sell but can’t [think about it, in a military community everyone is usually moving out and a lot of the jr enlisted families move home to mommy to save money - so there is no buyer pool at all], the program (big surprise) is now connected to the HARP program (’prevent’ foreclosure) - and guess what, after promising in writing a $200,000 check (the difference between purchase price and eventual sold price) - and his sister taking out a loan for $184,000 for a quick closing - the program sent him a check for $84,000 - and basically said, oops our bad. So his sister has a huge loan to pay off, he lost the extra money to match what he was going to lose on the sale - and of course no recourse what-so-ever - as he goes off to the war zone. Government programs never help anyone, they only cause more problems. This wasn’t a Private either but a Colonel.
And the big o is only making it worse, planning on passing a Dodd-Frank redo.
