Never thought I could afford to retire in the US (I am 62).
Having vacationed in central america these past 6 years I realized that these coutries made it possible for someone with a limited social security retirement income to afford their standard of living and more importantly their medical services.
Three years ago while visiting Costa Rica I visited a dentist, had a root canal, a crown and a cavity taken care of.
Total sum: $201.- !.


Today is monday morning on Catalina Island (California). At 10:30 am I'll take the ferry to San Pedro get in my truck and start driving to Panama (central america).

The planning and modifying my Isuzu NPR delivery truck to a motor home took a while. The planning started some years ago, the truck took 6 months.
