my wife is finally going to be retiring and we can escape Illinois so we have been talking where to go. some of the things we talked about is we either want a place in a small town or on some small acreage close to some duck hunting, also a hrc club or a akc hunt test club. we don't mind some winter but not one that lasts forever. I also don't want to go so far south that I have to worry that after sending my dogs out it's a race to get back before they get ate. Of course, low taxes would be a plus.
