    ... and if we just ... Returning to NM 1 Oct (for good)

    Just accepted a job in Alb and will be relocating back home after a long (too long actually) 26 year absence..

    Very much looking forward to leaving the humidity of Louisiana and returning to the mountains and high desert of New Mexico (not to mention the easy availablity of green & red chile..!).

    I'll be seeing you guys after 1 Oct.

    Congratulations on winning the lottery. Don't you flatlanders normally move to Colorado?

    Moving sucks but this is great news for you.

    Wait, this means we can't make fun of where you live anymore. That sucks too.
    See the trails, be one with FOO-MTB.

    Me a Coorsaradian? Nah.. I'm 100% native New Mexican thru & thru.

    Y'all (or should I say, all y'all) can continue to make fun of my flat lander riding skills, since I am used to riding only freshly groomed rock-free trails with as much as 10' of elevation change.

    Glad you're headin' back to the state. Won't be as fun taking you out on rides when you lose your flatlander lungs. Oh well, guess we can chunk rocks at ya or something.

    He'll be a local so I'm assuming there's a protocol.

    • pinecones for locals
    • sticks for neighboring out-of-staters
    • rocks for for non-neighboring out of staters
    • beers for ABQians

    Congrats!

    I don't care what no one says, NM is the place to be.

    Yeah, those other places might have jobs, good wages, trendy shops, tasty eateries, and edyukatid peepel - but we got hot chile, cold beer, and wide open fun places open year round.

    In best Klingon voice: Today is a good day to ride!

    Oh, I donno.. I've been living in Louisiana.. which is the ONLY state I know of that actually looks UP to Tejas....

    Yes, it is that bad.

    I am looking forward to revisiting Las Cruces, having lived there in Mesilla Park up thru 7th grade (left there in 1977). My dad was an aerospace engineer at White Sands for 20 years then when he retired we moved to the Alb area.

    Is La Posta in Old Mesilla still around?
