I went down to Cabo San Lucas two winters ago. A very close friend sold his business and bought a place about 40 miles north of Cabo ( far from the tourists) for next to nothing. He has a maid, a gardener, and a 36' boat docked in the village..............He lives on his SS check ( very damn well!!) and hasn't spent much of the money he got from his business!
I would like to do the same thing, but the wife won't leave the kids and grandkids. I wonder if I can get her to visit me in the winter?
