Once you move to anywhere with those you're joining a community and accepting the responsibility it entails.
what is freedom to you? what you describe sounds a lot like license...a child's notion of freedom (golly gee wilikers, I can't wait till I grow up! then I can do whatever I want to!)

freedom is self-direction & self-responsibility; it's about choice & consequence

it's deliberation (self de-liberation)

I'm pretty sure it is me who has changed. "It's not you, it's me."

And there's this: 30 years is enough, man. Hell, my average stay with an employer is 3 years. There's nothing else I've done for such a long time.
as I say: good luck with whatever comes next, toad...

Well no. That would take like 3 days.

Maybe 4 at your age

I salute you, sir! There's crap on this series of interconnected tubes that's disappeared, that's less than five years old. Hell, some of it less than two. You've gone far above and beyond any reasonable length of time for a venture like this, and you've done yeoman's work these past decades to keep it going. And that's true regardless of what your reason for shutting things down is.
