So long story short... at 41 I've ending a loveless marriage ( on nice terms ) and gave up my possessions. Now I only own clothes.. lol... and a job in logistics. My plan is to bank money for a year... get dental work done, dr. Visits, etc. make a trip to VI then make the move. I'll save money in the meantime since I have the opportunity. I've been to most islands in the Caribbean however being a USA citizen this is the easiest choice. I don't mind spotty internet and power outages. I'm more laid back and enjoy the finer things in life like nature and relationships with people. I just joined so just dropping in to say hello and hope to make some friends here in the next year or so while I make my move. This has been a long time coming and I understand the struggle but I'm strong and I'll regret not trying the rest of my life if I don't attempt this. The day my status goes to " he lives here" I'll throw a cookout and you're all invited! Live, laugh, love..

Hello! I wish you all the luck and happiness life 2.0 has to offer! You are brave and probably a little "nuts" for taking this challenge head on! You can do it and don't let the nay sayers get you down. Your success here depends entirely on you! Keep us informed on your progress!

Yes, I will agree. Really brave act. Many people will never dare to do this. I wish you success and that you write the continuation of your history. By the way, I also worked in logistics

Just curious, but what type of career activity does "logistics" represent? Sorry, I honestly don't know... who would you work for and what do you do?
