Hunter4Life43:Just a few thoughts: 1)moving to the city results in a higher wage, but also results in paying more income tax. 2)as mentioned by another forum member, higher property taxes, or if renting, the rent could be much higher. 3)being involved in a family farm plus working out takes a lot of time commitment. Are any of your family members able to buy your share out if you did decide to move? 4)is your partner forced to relocate due to down sizing? Sometimes the cost of relocating far out weighs the income going into your bank account. I was given a similiar option here in Canada several years back, and turned it down due to a much higher cost of living in the city. I was fortunate, that I was able to keep my same job with the company where I was working, not lose it because I was not willing to transfer, and sink myself into further debt. The best of luck in your choice.

Also when in chicago, try to look up local gun/archery clubs ranges,
It will give you a place to fire off some rounds, and maybe make friends with the local hunters, contrary to popular belief there are hunters even in the largest cities.
There may also be hunting grounds very close to the city,
Say within 1-2 hrs of the city

I say NO, don't do it! The reason I say this is because I made this decision 2 yrs ago, but not so extreme as you will. To make a long story short, I supported my home 100% for 10 yrs struggling some months to make my mortgage (union Carpenter), met my fiance for whom her and her kids inherited alot of money, enough to buy a 6000 sq ft. house with cash in a very well known community and life is alot easier but, my self esteem and ego has gone way down due to me not being a full provider! Although it has allowed me to follow a dream and invent a product that could change me and us. Farmland to gangland is another reason I say no. Anyhow I voiced my $.02!

Thats what I was saying no amount of money is worth living in chicago it is ranked in the top 5 for murders in the U.S you have the most notorious gang in the world the latin kings,and rival gangs the crips,and the decipals,not a place you want to raise your children thats for sure granted most of the killing are gang members killing rival gang members but the ratio of people being killed from stray bullets is high and not uncommon in chicago,dont be dumb and stay in the country on your farm where you know you will live a long and peaceful life.
