End of the World

This week's "let's move" escapism destination brought to you by the latest crisis in the Middle East. We're "moving" to Sedalia, Missouri. The location has a number of benefits:

  1. The latitude is south "enough" for me. Neither Mike nor I love cold weather, but more importantly, I need sunlight. The Sedalia city website says their July temp averages 78 degrees. That's a little hard to believe, but whatever.
  2. It's "near" a major city ... just a quick 94 miles (smile) from Kansas City; or 60 miles from Jefferson City; or 117 miles from Springfield.
  3. It has an airport, a community college, and a 180-bed regional hospital right there in town.
  4. It's just 20 minutes from Whiteman Air Force Base, which has a commisary, BX, and medical.
  5. Finally, there are farms for sale. I figure we'll need some row crops, a small herd of dairy cows, some meat cows, and some chickens. A few sheep would be fun. No horses.
