While we are not FT'ers and do enjoy traveling, I would never give up our S&B's. I like knowing that it is mine and 'no one' can take it away, yes it is paid for! While we only have 2.5 acres, we do have a nice 1400sf house, a nice shop that I can work on most anything, a safe place to shoot anytime I wish and a place that our two labs can run.
Now that the DW is retired we do plan on traveling a little more, but still like having the home base. I like my winters and still do not mind the snow and putting up with cold temps. I am a winter person anyway as I do not care for the hotter temps.
