Funny, If it wasn’t for the birth of my daughter and China Virus problems I would have already taken my family back to the states. 
 

Careful what you wish for my friend. 

Happy to trade seats with you...

Same Same. Heading to the country house. And if they don't have one they are renting/buying one. Too many places near NYC to highlight one. The neighbor I grew up with on the west coast spent 36 years working in the big apple, now retired, living upriver on the  Hudson. He e mailed  ... In the last 5 months their podunk town has become a hot property for NYC refugees. but likely all of New England has too

------------------------------------------------

 

Didn't Greece open up? Cold winters though, means you will have to get farther south. Crete, Karpathos, Rhodes? Kastellorizo only if you like remote. Across the ocean, standbys are Oaxaca mexico, down on the pacific coast from there. Avoid gulf of Tehuantepec!  Guatemala, Lake Atitlan or Antigua. I have no idea if Guatemala is open and what the situation with wuhan 19 is, but always liked it. On my short list, pre pandemic. Hope it works out. Here in Thailand, it has finally dawned on us steelheads, likely will not get out until, july 2021, or later. From lockdown to a country wide quarantine. uhhhh, It could be worse.

Im down with remote as long as its the same cost as LOS or less and can access wifi to stay on TV forums!

Ooops, sorry, just went through your list and one other. It's looking grim  😮

 

Greece is open, to EU passport holders, canadian etc, but not US.

Guatemala has banned US flights, but was taking about opening next month. Then Trump publicly yelled at them on unrelated issue.  That likely is toast now.

----------------------------------------

Moving on for US although transport is difficult and tests required.

-------------------------------------------------------

Barbados. If you have the money, they have the rhum.

Turkey, head to Kas, right across from Kastellorizo island Greece. Ferry over to Northern Cyprus (?) 

Ecuador - Good read, restrictions, test yes, but US had been allowed in. Now a volcano eruption has led to evacuate advice form US embassy. but only part of the country, Maybe this is the time to sneak in and get an apartment in Quito.

Dumpster Fire News

Given Trumps handling of the pandemic, this excrement show is only going to get worse short term. The 'back to school' order is already a disaster. I expect college football season to be officially cancelled this week. 50/50 if the NFL follows.


Dumpster Fire burns until November, then some hope but dark say for two more months. Fly to Cuba via Mexico ? up2U

 

Good Luck and Godspeed.

 

 

My first trip abroad was machi picchu --so went to peru and quito for galapagos......Id try that or turkey and even greece....just wanting the cheapest, and least restrictions...I can supply a test prior to flying as well

I'm certainly glad I came to Thailand when I did. Then my mom got out of her failed marriage, also escaping our overpriced, failed home state, and got a nice, cheap place out in the midwest. The price on them has just about doubled since.

 

The plan now is to spend the next 5-10 years in the LOS, then go join mom when she's too old to live by herself, with my Thai wife.

 

Thailand's a good place to score a good chick, wait out the current American crisis until things hopefully get better, then return across bridges which you've hopefully kept intact. I would not recommend Thailand for any indefinite stay or investment. While they certainly love the money, the government and many others here have proven time and again, they really don't want us here.

Ive been coming there yearly since 2008. Im regretting leaving mid march when my visa expired--hindsight

 

I usually do 4 months, but had I know this mess would occur here I would have just camped out over there, as I had a job lined up and a place and as soon as I landed the fuse was lit on this current dumpster fire

Who would want to go to Mexico with the high crime rate there?

 

If I were back in the USA I would get me a remote cabin somewhere off the grid in the beautiful Colorado Rocky Mountains. Preferably with nearby rivers/lakes to fish on.

Happy to investigate if you got any leads.....im on east coast..right next to the Stable Genius  😞

If you have no job, and cannot afford the 2 grand for Cambodia, how can you plan to go and live anywhere?

I have savings as I live below my means, and earning USD and then spending it like a local in LOS tends to stretch it out.....Id consider the 2000 but that amount in the hands of others just spooks me a bit....anyone had any exps with this and that it is legit and worth it.....seems like the closest option to wait out LOS

Ive always considered it but Ive had a double hernia surgery, I did used to work on a schooner in Maine

Im trying to get OUT of the US...there is nothing  good here until this mess is under control...in my opinion

A friend of mine left Thailand in February to stay back in the US....he regrets his decision every day and is now searching for anywhere he can land to wait out the Thailand closure somewhere other than America. I was planning my regular two year visit for O-A visa in October....now...just wait it out here...maybe another 2 years before I go back
