    All Good Things Come to an End: Hanging Up the Keys

    Yes I forgot to mention the US dollar used in Ecuador, one less challenge to work out. Actually the retirement visa has just recently gone up from $425 to I believe $1,200. Still in all the cost of living is dramatically lower.

    All Good Things Come to an End: Hanging Up the Keys

    All of the above plus natural beauty, biodiversity, culture. In addition we like the fact that Ecuador has written into their constitution a bill of rights - legal requirements for wildlife and nature on an equal plane as a bill of rights for people.

    Tire Pressure Monitoring System

    I agree, never leave home without one - cheap insurance. We also have the TST and it has performed well for us and I really have found benefit with the color display over the b/w displays which in some bright light can be difficult to read.

    Geico Canceled My Insurance After 14 Years

    Airhead "paper carrier" question

    No difference just look for unbleached or any marked compostable. We used the Airhead paper carriers until they ran out then switched to "If You Care coffee filters" that we can get in local grocery stores. The ones you linked should be fine.
