    Hello Gang - I just registered after reading this site for years.
    I am perhaps a rare user: I have a life, wealth, family - no issues, problems, drug habits, legal headaches. I own a brownstone in new york city.
    I even run a hedge fund.

    Some might say i have it all...but,
    ...I want out.

    I have a plan: I'd like to go to one of my favorite places, a town in Costa Rica, where the surfing is great as are the people.
    We'd buy a bunch of land and start a store in town (for tax purposes). Build a compound; an estate on a hilltop overlooking the coast.
    We'd start building a family, maybe an extended big family.

    We can garden, trade, surf, smoke and laugh - but mostly, keep quiet, private and secluded. An oasis.

    Importantly, there are direct flights out of new york!

    Any additional thoughts as to where else is possible? - Costa Rica is lovely, stable, kind and god-fearing (not that i'm religious, i'm not).

    Trivia Question BONUS!! - "LAST EXIT" is the first band started by "G.S." in the 1970s. "GS" today is beyond famous. WHO is GS??

    My dear friends: Suggestions on my Oasis Escape are more than welcome - as are interested parties to join in the adventure!

    -Mike

    Mike, great idea. I have one too. I have money , job, and the whole shebang. I cant retire just yet, have small kids and commitment. But want to be a weekend hippie and be true to myself. I can invest , join. Nothern Ontario, Quebec , Maine would be ideal for me. Nicaragua would be cheaper. I have a blog http://openfreecommune.blogspot.ca/ where I outlined my vision.

    if your going south you may as well go to french guiana or suriname or something, that way your not on a little stretch of land in a tiny country. and im sure you can get more bang for your buck just because its not as tiny of a country infused with as much tourist $$. i dont know just my thoughts.
