Congrats! We moved 2 hours away just to get a house at about 1/3 cost. Best decision we ever made. I know TOO MANY people too scared to make the move, and just not sure why. Though admittedly we are lucky to have the flexibility too not to rely on one area. & moving 2 hours wasn't *that* huge. You are making a bigger leap!
But IA m sure it will work out well - yay for you!
