    So you were bumping Brad Pitt. Not many people can say they've had anal sex with Brad Pitt. Congratulations!

    Benefit to renting is you can easily leave if you donít end up wanting to settle there. Be a nomad, maybe it takes two or three moves before you find your forever home.

    Not quite the same scenario as yours but I did own a vacation home in the Caribbean for 12 years so I do know the pitfalls of ownership. Insurance and maintenance costs are unreal & youíre always waiting for the storm of the century to flatten you.

    Now, we just travel somewhere different each winter on 2-8 week rentals.

    If Iím you Iíd rent for sureÖ short leases if possible. Good luck

    I'm not on a "limited budget". you peasant. I just don't like wasting money on shit I don't need to. And deal with all the nonsense that comes with living on an island. Wouldn't be where I am if I blew money like you fucking degens do. Oh and the winds at the TPC are just as strong, I mean it is literally on the fucking Caribbean. I can play in anything.

    I don't want to blow unnecessary money living on a tiny fucking island that needs every God damn thing brought in by a fucking boat. I know the poors like to blow the money they don't have going there on a vacation they can't afford, but I' doing this (almost) year round not for a week.
    You are begging for advice on a cheap place to retire on PFA and Iím the peasantÖhaha. Panama is still the answer, good healthcare, good golf, good country club style livingÖ.or head to Thailand, plenty of golf. Why would you choose to play golf in a wind tunnel when you donít have to.

    I just had a flashback to a recent stay on the Dominican Republic.

    I did a AirBnB kinda thing. I’m walking downtown and looking at the new construction and nicer homes. Daydreams of being an expat like you and Micon.

    I would see guys sitting on a painters bucket at the end of the driveway with a rifle.

    I wrote about going to the super market and running my cart over a private security guards foot in the parking lot and this kid was holding something that looked like an assault rifle. Maybe that belongs in tgulls brush with death thread.

    Great wind surfing and I’m an island guy but nothing long term

    You should check out Haiti and get in on the ground floor
