My wife and I are moving in April. As of right now, we don't know where. I am hoping you can help. I started a thread in the "Learning to Sail" forum a while back and got some good ideas, and am hoping for more now. That thread was
Where to live and learn??
After thinking hard about what we want we have more constraints on where we would like to live. Here are our requirements.
-My wife is a elementary teacher, so a few nearby schools
-Close enough to salt water that I could easily drive, less than an hour, to a harbor and learn to sail by volunteering, working, or some other means.
-We want to be able to grow a garden.
-Four seasons every year.
-Ability to live outside a town or city of more than 10,000, less than 20 minutes away, and rent or buy a small house with at least 2 acres for less than 120,000.
-Access to hiking, climbing, and outdoor recreation in general.
-I want to be able to play 5 on 5 basketball twice a week.
We are in our mid-twenties, love the outdoors, have an Alaskan Husky, and are no strangers to travel. We have been living in Alaska doing seasonal work for five years now and want to settle down for a while.
If you have made it this far, thank you for reading and I hope we get some suggestions.
