Remote working has become something that is normal and a lot of employers are finding there to be more benefits to the idea of having geographic independence. You still have to be mindful of taxes depending on your state and you also have the freedom to choose locations based on weather and other attractions. Transportation and lodging aren’t all that hard to find with long term vacation rentals and rental cars.
