Looking for Retirement Places

Hi,

Anyone living in the Southern half of Iowa, maybe around the Rathbin Lake area? Maybe Northern Missouri? Wife & I are comtimplating finding a retirement area to relocate to. Don't need much in amenities. Rural living is fine with us. Maybe 10 acres, close to creek/river, close to a gun range.

It is to cold in the places that you mention. We do the UP of MI in the summer and TX and Florida in the winter. We would not want to spend the winter in any part of Iowa.

Not Arkansas. We have mosquitoes, and tornadoes, and Democrats, and Republicans, and Farmers, and rednecks, and hunters, and fishermen, and trees, and gnats, and snakes, and a bunch of rocks. Not here, trust me. I hear Florida is nice. Alabama. Maybe Georgia.

We've been checking out places in Tennessee. Tired of Wisconsin winters.

Middle TN, the center part of the state, with Nashville as the main city is a beautiful area; however, it is VERY humid and hot in the summer. Eastern part is also rather humid but not as hot. Had a home there for seven years, loved it, but you have to like to sweat! However, it was third on my list for retirement places when I decided to "really" retire from Moab.
