Now that I am in Arizona for two weeks, I am bumping into so many seniors who have hit the road when their financial situations soured elsewhere. We are the new migrant workers. And we have compared notes about what we would have done differently to make the ordeal less stressful. That's how this series came about
At the top of the list is this: We would not have "asked permission" of God's Plenty about the relocation. Usually they are locked in themselves. Unless they are unusual they will not unlock that mindset to assess our situation objectively. Therefore, had we to do it over again, we would have not shared our possible plans with the world. Instead we would have run the idea by those in the know or intimates in our lives.
The unobjective input from others can confuse us. Anyway sharing is over-rated. Making a decision does not have to involve one's whole professional and social circle.
