    Where we live in Montana there are only 75 days of complete clear skies, adding the partly cloudy days we have on avg 158 days of sunshine!!! so SAD is a reality for my wife and I both who thrive on sunshine... even before my injury our dream was to move south BUT much warmer then 80deg i melt..... I vote heck yea you would have to feel better

    after reading a short little story like that… It puts a smile on my face, because just being outside in the warm weather makes me happy and it's pretty cold where I live right now and I am inside a lot and not really doing anything. Hard to believe in four weeks I'll be in Fort Lauderdale, and I'll wave goodbye to winter's forever

    hopefully it will make mine too. I can't wait till I get down there

    There are a lot of good deals on houses for sale in FL. The one bad thing I hear is the cost of insurance.

    Since I receive no family help at all, I would do it also if I could figure out how to manage it as a quad.

    Enjoy yourself and good luck.
    Thanks for the good luck wishes. One thing I found out when I was buying my house in Florida, was that if you are a quadriplegic, you do not have to pay property taxes (that's going to save me $5000 a year)… So, that may be something you want to keep in the back of your mind in case you ever do decide to come down

    I'm a high para in England, and 6 months of the year is too cold for me.
    I've always hated the cold, but never had it rule my life as an ab.
    Since sci I can't cope with the cold at all. I need to go to the shops today, and it's just a little way down the road, but I know it's too cold right now. I have strong feelings of not being able to cope when I get cold, and I shiver so bad my neck gets really tight and gives me a terrible headache.
    I can't think straight and just feel terrible. I would love to live somewhere warm all year round.

    Warm good, but hot sucks.

    Getting hot ruins my day. It takes me hours to cool down, and even then I am tired.
