Winning the lottery, financial windfall, settled lawsuit, rich relatives's inheritance, etc etc. Just imagine that you could afford to live anywhere at all, luxuriously and why.

Hawaii. Blue oceans, mountains, unique foliage, unique indigenous culture, pleasant and mild weather. It is still in the USA, so I won't have a large culture shock, but it is still more multicultural than the part of Wisconsin where I live.

Assuming its enough that I don't have to work again, somewhere on the Tweed Coast/Northern New South Wales.
Then I might actually surf every day.

I'd pick Alaska, but only as a home base; I'd purchase a moped and travel all over the continent.

I would have to have at least 2 homes. I would have one here in the Pittsburgh area so I can still be near my family, and then a house on the beach in Maui.

I also would probably get a house somewhere near Disney World and Universal Studios in Florida for the kids (ok, for me too).

A small island off the western coast of Ireland with a thatched roof cottage, an endless supply of peat for the fire, cases of good whiskey, and all the books to read I haven't gotten to yet. Plus, I am the only one on the isalnd and have a small currach to get to the mainland every so often.

I'd go for a swanky place in Portland, Maine. I'd also have a summer house in Nova Scotia, and a ski house in Colorado.

Whoa, Nick Bockwinkle, you have the exact same intentions as I do. Is it possible you have the other half of this locket?

I'd probably also get myself a place in Vancouver or thereabouts, in the Pacific Northwest.

A ranch in the mountains of Idaho and house on the Makena Coast outside of Kihei on Maui - that would work

I'd choose my location based on weather. Preferably, I'd want somewhere with mild winters and mild summers. Somewhere with out hurricanes, tornados, earthquakes, and the like.

Well, I like to roam, so I'd probably set myself up with low maintenance condos or townhouses in some of my favorite cities so I could just up and go at anytime and be hooked up on the other end with no need for set schedules to be anywhere else.

Couple weeks here...a month there...A lovely network of central hubs, basically.

Freaky!

I'd get a place here in Halifax, plus one in my former hometown of Portland, too.

I'd build the huge house out in Calgary, though.

I'd stay right here in the Northwest, but probably upgrade the home to something in the 3000-3500 square foot range, then get a cabin (or a condo, or just another house now that I think about it) on the Pacific Coast (maybe Ocean Shores, WA) and get a house by my parents' place in Maine.

I wouldn't move. I would pay off my house here in China, Maine. After the kids were out of school, we might move.

I would definitely visit Bullitt and samoflage in Portland, though. I am guessing if they were building big old houses in Portland, they could add on the pieman wing for me. I would also hope for a pieman wing in the JJD's parents place in Montville.

I'd move to New England, like maybe Cape Cod or something. A house with a view of water, a porch that wrapped around the house and a porch swing.

I'd definately get another house in Northern New Jersey though. My luck, I'd have the neighbors from hell and I'd have to throw a ham over the fence to get them to stop with all the noise. :)

I'd buy a nice house here in Toronto for spring and fall.

Summer in Newfoundland.

Winter on the Mediterranean coast of France.

I'd like to buy an island, preferably one in a warm climate. That was my ex-roommate's goal in life, and I think it's a worthy dream. Maybe open a casino resort.

I'd buy a huge ranch in a warm weather place and help my wife run any size animal rescue that she wanted. Then, I'd build a golf course and stay there while MRS played with the animals.

I'd backpack the world first. Just hit every place I could, and try to see it all. Afterwards... I dunno. California, 'cause then I could actually afford the ridiculous property costs!

I'd like to have a place in Miami Beach. And probably another place in Hawaii because it is just so beautiful.
