    Hello again hubbers- from Costa Rica. I can't immagine ever living state side again. A few years back my wife and I started a Co-op in costa rica that includes 60 acres of beautiful land in the mountains. We now have 12 full time people living here(young and old), fresh food grown and raised on the farm, neighbors we get along with and trust, smiling faces, no talk of politics, cheap cost of living(sustainable actually) and all the accomidations I was once used to plus peace and quiet. For you christians who are sick of all the noise and the atheist agenda, I can't make a stronger suggestion. Sell everything and get out of babylon. I'll even help you on your way.

      Sell everything sounds a little bit scary . What if someone arrives there and 3 months later decides to go back to Babylon ? with what money is he going to be able to buy a hanging garden ? hmm

      Sounds totally awesome!

      But the mission field here in my Country hasn't been covered yet. And a Christian cannot just retire; their work is never done.

    Sounds like a commune.  Great stuff.  Lets get back to nature.  Do you have to be a christian?  Cant you just be a nature girl?

      Anyone is more than welcome to visit. The phrase, "you reap what you sow" is a major part of our lively-hood- not to say we don't have free loading guests at times, but anyone who stays understands where our food comes from and lends a helping hand. Its actually very gratifying for everyone- and people never want to leave. The nice thing about down here is things really want to grow and most of your time is spent ridding invasive plants instead of begging your garden to grow(Strange difference from AZ).

      In short- yes you could stay.
