The question says it all. Now that I am getting older I wanna retire near the Sky Line drive. ( Mountains ). Linda wants to retire near Nags Head, NC. In my younger days I loved the beach but as I have got older I want to stay away from the city and tourist area. I have lived near the water all my life and the traffic here is terrible, not to mention the crime. Nags Head is fine for me in the dead winter but come summer the place is packed. We have looked at some places in Cullpeper and Madison which has a great view of the mountains and has a few acres to boot which for me is fine. Most of the homes we were looking at were between 275,000.00 to 500,000.00. I told Linda I will be glad to get rid of this house. It's to big for us. Linda says she hates living out in stick land and I hate living around wall to wall people. Any of you city slickers got a room she can rent.
