Re: Canadian-made Sorel boots?
You say you want to retire to Dakota.
Why not retire to the Yukon, There are probably in the neighborhood of 3000 folks from the lower 48 in our town who have been here for as much as thirty years. (they still vote in USA elections).
I have freinds from Georgia, California, and other points down south.
There is also a lot of cross border visitors coming from Alaska to visit and shop.
We have the best weather, the best health care, the best wilderness, the best fishing the best hunting, do I keep on.
After you are 65 your meds are free, all health care is virtualy free. (for that I have to thank southern canadians and transfer payments, it is a canadian thing)
Fishing is free, hunting is free, visiting parks is free.
You gotta try it to believe it.
Young people bting their parents up here becaus housing is at a low cost for them.
