        Try doing an internet search with these terms: "where to live." You'll find many websites with quizzes to take that allow you to express how important various criteria are to you. Once you have answered the questions, various locations are listed, usually with descriptions of the localities. This is an easy way to narrow your choices...saves time and gas.

        You'll find questions like the following:

        2. Select the regions of the country you prefer (climate/weather).
        ◊Southeast/Mid South

        3. Select the sizes of the city you would prefer.

        4. How important is low cost of living?

            GL, You might want to consider the central spine of South Florida. Some cities like Sebring, Lehigh Acres and the such have lots of property and homes that are available within reason. You would be with 90 minutes of major metro hubs like Tampa and Miami where you could seen specialized spinal care if needed and plenty of healthcare options there in the local area as well. The temp stays above 70 most of the year as long as you are below the frost line and everything is basically flat. Most of the newer neighborhood have sidewalks and are somewhat handicap friendly.

            I know I miss south florida terribly. I had to come back home to Mississippi because this is where my family was after my injury and a parent that refuses to leave even though it would be easier somewhere else.

            I hope you find your ZEN place and only you will know when it clicks.
