Not a social hiker here either dude, that's for Meetup groups, but I prefer to have at least one other person for my offtrail hikes for safety reasons. To each his own, blah blah blah. Let's do a hike one day!ASUAviator wrote:But at the same time, not all are like you. I for one am typically not a social hiker
Please do wait for the day. Retirement only means I'm older and unable to do the things I used to do. In reality, I envy you.ASUAviator wrote: If youre retired, props to you. Can't wait for my day
Well don't forget he does spend a ton of time on his awesome websitechumley wrote: I met a guy once who was retired and hikes all the time with no financial concern in the world. He was like 40-something.

Well it is true that you and I have disagreed about the merits of various communities, so perhaps you would really enjoy it here. I feel it is a soul-less, trashy town without good local recreation or scenic views. Your mileage may vary.Jim_H wrote:Casa Grande would be a huge step up for me right now, so I can't complain about that area at all.
I like Yuma. I spent two winters there, in Foothills. I kayaked the river and road biked the roads, and hiked the crusty peaks and interesting canyons, mountain biked the jeep roads, and took a class at AWC. I did a lot of hunting for petroglyph panels and other interesting things. I worked at a middle school and was amazed at the lack of interracial prejudice amongst the students and staff. I still have nice friends there, and I think it's a pretty nice town. It is awfully hot there in summer, and it is a long way to a high mountain area to cool off and hike, so I would not want to live there full-time. The crime problems there are no different than Tucson or Phoenix--you have good neighborhoods and you have bad ones.kingsnake wrote:Could be worse.

Dad to me before I moved to Yuma in 1985: "It's the arm pit of the world."
Me: "It can't be that bad."
Me, several months later: "It's worse, and lower down." ;)
