    Who said anything about quitting? I just won't live in the mountains most likely in old age and pick my days via plane, train or automobile.

    There's a lot to be said for urban living when you're old, if you have money. Big if though.

    A very eye opening topic.

    I'm hoping to move and live the dream and all that in retirement. Even after reading this thread, the article and it's comments I don't see any greater downside to that strategy.
