I want to relocate and have a fresh start in the next year or so. Ideally, I would like an area with four seasons but not a LOT of snow and brutal cold and where real estate prices are not out of sight. I'm too old for that. I want a pretty place with a small acreage not too far from town where I can raise a few chickens, have a garden, and raise flowers. Ideas welcome. I am now in California and I don't really want to stay here. Ideas and suggestions please.
