    Hello,

    My name is Tom Walker, I am a retired helicopter pilot from the US Coast Guard. I have not been to the Philippines since the 80's, but now that I am retired I am thinking about relocating there. I plan to come visit early next year. I look forward to gaining some knowledge from the members here, and if there is anything I can do to assist anyone from back here in Florida, let me know.

    Welcomes Tom, to second Carl, you will probably like it here. Living in Florida the weather should not be a factor. Depending on where you live, life is affordable. Good luck.

    I have connections in Palm Beach County and elsewhere along the Atlantic coast. But I think they are about 500 miles away from you.

    PatO,

    I was wondering if you would care to elaborate on your comment, "depending on where you live life is affordable".

    I am trying to determine if my pension is going to be enough to live on comfortably. I would need a small place to live, but one with western style ammenities, would like to be near the beach and able to afford to eat out and play golf a few times a week. I don't need to be near the wild night life, but would want to be able to go somewhere for a few beers and some companionship. What would you think would be a reasonable monthly budget for this lifestyle. I know there are alot of variables, but would appreciate an estimate anyway. Any other members, please feel free to add your comments.
    Thanks
