    SLW and I saw an episode of HGTV - House Hunters where they looked at 3 places on St. Croix. It is a beautiful island but what caught our attention was the cost of electricity. It was friggen unbelievable.

    And these DUmmie threads are hilarious, they are a DU staple. :D
    May the FORCE be with you!

    If republicans continue to make gains in 2012, and the movement that recently started in Wisconsin fizzles out, I'm definitely planning on leaving again.


    WELL........BYE!

    but getting your guns there is another thing...AND getting there. I'd want to take my motor home and you'd have to fight thieves all the way.

    very true, traveling in a caravan is the best way to go. When I went to Belize I ran into a lady that had traveled down there with a group that were transporting some cars down from Vegas. That was 10 years ago and it's probably worse by now. I'm not sure about the guns though

    I plan on shipping my stuff there (Panama) in a container. It will be insured and met on the other end by in laws. If they steal something, I'll send in the outlaws.:mad:;)

    Wait, opportunity? What is keeping these people from leaving? This isn't the Soviet Union. There is no anchor tied to their asses. Just go. No one will stop you.
