Home Away From Home

I live out of hotels rooms and airports more than I do my own house. I still call the Atlanta area home and of all the places that I end up any given year, there's still not another place I prefer to do my laundry on the weekends. Maybe it's the general southern mentality that permiates the city (although half the residents are transplants), but it's home. The only gripe I really have is the traffic (even at the airport the planes are backed up!).

What's makes your city home for you?

If there was one thing you could change what would it be?

If money was no object would you still live there, and if not where?

I'm a native Georigan so I'm very partial to my home state. I love the climate, the trees, we have mountians to the north and the ocean to the east. I'm not to far from one of my favorite cities, Savannah.

I would change the traffic situation if I could and stop all the clear cutting that is taking place as new development comes in.

If money was not an object I would stay here..a cabin in the mountains, a home on the coast and a primary residence in the middle of the county on lots of acerage. Hey, if I'm gonna dream, I should do it big.

I wasn't already living here, and could afford to move elswhere, I'd take off to California for a few years and then onto Colorado. After that, I would go to Florida to retire along w/ everybody else! I really want for you to figure out this traffic problem in Atlanta, elbman. When can you start on that?

If money were absolutely no object, I'd live in Scandinavia. I don't know why, but it just works for me, and I have friends in Denmark who would be happy that I finally gave in. But I guess I'd have to have a home on the East Coast to stay close to my family, probably in NC or TN somewhere, in the mountains. And, of course, a beach house. Something big enough so everyone could come and party. With a dock. And a boat. This is getting expensive, but I guess I can afford it...

Caress-Nothing wrong with having your cake and eating it too, when money is no longer an object.

NB-Somehow I already knew your answer......

AAS-Start from west and work your way back east to the reitrement home.... I could fix the traffic problem in 12 months, have to get the government out of the way first.

DD-It's great how our nostalgic childhood memories always seem to draw us back.

Seeker-You've got the normal house and the vacation home covered.......and the mobile floating home too.
