Though we're far apart I have the same question as well...anyone in the South getting out of the business w/ healthy hives, empty or w/ bees?

Just a little advice, Summerbee.  If you get registered with the state it allows retireing beekeepers to have an easier time looking for you.  That's what happened to me when a beekeeper was moving to Louisiana.  Unfortunately, he hadn't seen his hive in a month and when I got to it, it was nothing but a pile of SHB larvae and slime.  I couldn't save anything...
