    Growing older with an SCI in Florida without local SCI doctors is challenging.


    I live in Florida and I love this map. It tells you everything

      That map makes life in Florida look pretty dismal...add unbearably hot summers and...why does anyone want to move or live there? What are the upsides of living in Florida? Full disclosure, NL's brother and wife live there (raised a family there), and we can't understand why they stay. Fuller disclosure, NL and I grew up in Phoenix, AZ and still have family there, and yet AZ has absolutely no appeal to us.

      NL and I have spent many hours on Sunday afternoons over a glass of wine, wondering where else we would want to try to live. Tough question! Is there an ideal place? We haven't found one. And while we are comfortable and established with friends, community and good medical care, the San Francisco Bay Area is not ideal.

        You would probably appreciate this similar one for California!!!

          This thread got my interest going. Gotta like the automatic slab and masonry construction. Anyone got names of new construction builders to recommend that are easy to deal with when wanting things like flush threshold doors and custom design so the bathroom isn't a closet? Also, which parts of FL are least prone to sinkholes?

                      Congratulations! Not trying to pry into your personal finances - but can you give an idea of the sort of price range that a house of that general size goes for in that area?

                          +/- 350K, buying it as an investment property. That's one single studio apartment in New York

                          Thanks everyone
