Personally, I think you are making the right choice. At this stage of your career, and being close to retirement, it's simply not worth it, IMO. Having to uproot your family for 5 years or so isn't worth the hassle it would bring, especially if you plan to retire in Jacksonville anyway.
Wear gaudy colors, or avoid display. Lay a million eggs or give birth to one. The fittest shall survive, yet the unfit may live. Be like your ancestors or be different. We must repeat!
