My wife and I have become fed up with the rat race of our corporate jobs. We make good money, but the stress and aggravation is not really worth it. We have been looking around for a less hectic lifestyle with priorities on people, nature, culture, and low stress. We were very impressed with Molokai and are seriously considering a move. This would be a major lifestyle change and will requre a lot of thought. Has anyone on the forum done this? Any suggestions or thoughts on things to consider? We are thinking of things like less contact with family, none of the usual "entertainment" options. possible boredom, small simple housing, living on less income, no snow, etc. My wife taught high school in the past and really loved it, but the conditions that teachers have to work in can be dangerous to say the least. She felt very comfortable and has the impression that she would enjoy teaching in Molokai. We are nature lovers and conservationist at heart, so we would probably get involved in these aspects if we decided to move. I know there is pressure to keep "resort types" from buying or settling, but I don't know if the welcome we have received would diminish if we were to be permanent residents. It will take some time to decide and make arrangements, and we want as much information as possible, so any comments are welcome.
