I know it's been awhile. I keep saying I'll maintain my blog but for some reason what used to be so easy is just as easy to forget now.

I read on FB this morning that Rob's child just turned 5. It is amazing how time flies as I remember him announcing hear the birth. Congrats Rob!

Life here is much the same, I love who i am with, love what I do and love, OK I hate El Paso, No, not the people or the culture, but brown and dry and windy gets old rather quick. I could use some rain and a whole lot of green and rivers and lakes and fishing. On and on I could go about the geographical features that I despise here or miss from other places, but here is where I will be for the foreseeable future, but it does lead to the QOD:

If you could move, forget work, family and the things that tie you where you are now, where would you live?

Quoting whitewabit:
If money was no issue it would have to be Europe .. Travel times are short between destinations and there is so many historical places to see .. skiing and the beach just hours away ...


Hello Ric! I would say the Colorado Rockies. I love the mountains and have lived in the German Alps for six years.

Whitewabit, I have lived in Europe for 23 years so I could fill you in if you would like. It had its advantages and disadvantages compared to the U.S.

Quoting ricderr:
I think if i had to live in one spot year round I would agree with the northwest coast of oregon....but...with nothing holding me back....i would have to pick summer in alaska.....winter in the fl keys.....and some autumn and spring in west north carolina...

Hence the boat. If I got tired of the scenery or the weather I could move on. Follow the good weather. Visit friends (most of whom live within a days drive of the coast) explore new and interesting things. Freedom.

Maybe one day...

It's gotta be tropical and near water. FL Keys maybe. I can't do snow and ice!

After many years of living in a place I pretty much hated, the Phoenix, Az. area, I now finally live in the place I'll never leave, the Pacific Northwest. Now, as Rob said, if I could put a big sailboat on the Columbia river that would make it completely perfect.

Good question ricderr.
My first reaction was: I would not move except to go downstairs to fill up my cooling coffee cup but when I read Rob's choice I thought: "Wait a minute. Maybe on a "Flying Boat" kitted out like an executive jet?"
Finally:
I'd move back in time to watch a bit of the world I experienced as an ignorant child or forward in time to see how this moment in history boils down.
