Thanks all.

The main driver behind the move is to totally get rid of the mortgage (we should show up with enough cash to buy a modest house).

I'm not opposed to snow, in fact living on the West coast of England I have missed it (we don't get any!).

I know the area we are going to is deviod of what some may consider "interesting" things to do, but at 37, that's not my main reason for moving. Besides, that's what road trips are for.

Get pally with LeBron, he lives just outside Akron. With 35,000 square feet, a casino, bowling alley, sports bar and 6 car garage I'm sure he can get ever channel known to man and you won't be short of places to watch it or park! It's off Idlebrook Drive in Bath, just in case you want to look!

Just remember that LeBron is still on the shitlist of many Ohioans for the Yankee cap incident. Socialising with him might not make you much loved in your new neighborhood.

Tis true, however, given the choice of socializing with lebron or socializing with some old normo, lebron wins!

Or am I imagining the whole thing?

We will at least initially be living in southers OH too.....

Only because it's different here.. have you looked into the mortgage interest tax deduction?
Not normally a good reason to carry debt, but you may want to investigate.

Blech.... my opinion is of course coloured by the fact that my ex-husband's hometown is Louisville and my ex-MIL is a big Louisville supporter while my ex's cousin is a big UK supporter. Basketball season is always contentious!

I'll be honest and say that I'm not fond of Louisville, Lexington, or Cincinnati, and would choose Chicago over all of these if not for the s-s-snow there!
