How about you ? any costumes to mention or favorite drinks ? I am wearing my New Artic Cat Cap as my costume tonite .

We were invited to the home of the people who I just got through building storage rooms in the Pole Barn I built some years ago for them.

Not bragging ,,just sharing what we are going to do on this Dec 31st 2009.

I like Henrys "Poor Bore Ale " myself and the wife likes white wine. We will stay Sober enough to drive the 4 miles home ,,back roads except where I cross a main Highway .

The hosts of our small party play a little "Blue Grass " so that will be our tunes as they say.. LOL

Care to share what "you-ins" are doing tonite ..( a Little Arkansas Accent came out if you noticed.. LOL GP here wishing you all a Happy New Year ..

True, but there are a lot of 50ft drop off cliffs where we ride... don't wanna miss seeing one of those.... :eek:
It's funny though, most of them don't even get themselves in a position to race me anymore.... wonder why...

A quiet evening is what we are used to these last 25 or so years ,,but last night we went to some friends home ,,5 couples and a turtle .. The host played a little on his fiddle and mandolin acompanied with his gal friend on the guitar .. she is learning to chord along with him ,,enjoyed this for about 30 min. and then right back to (having a couple drinks,, I swear ) and eating not so much( cant swear to this ) and talking like most of like to do .
Came home and found a movie on direct tv and watched it and went on to bed and didn't even hear the shot guns of past years go off at midnight ..

So I can relate to you staying home and having a quiet evening , nothing wrong in doing that as the comfort of ones own home is where it is ..

Wonder how many are having hangovers this morning ? Glad them days are long gone.. LOL GP

Now for my New Years Resolution,,,,lets see ,,acually I dont think I ever held true to any so will just plod along and try being as nice as I can be to all..

We did go out to dinner/movie while grandma watched the kids. It sure was nice, grandmas and grandpas rock. It sounds like you had a great time last night. Bring on 2010, come on economy show us the money. On our way home last night I was amazed at how many home fire works were going off.

Sorry it took so long to reply GOPAPA, haven't been near a computer that, been using my cell phone to keep up with what's going on, but replying wasn't really fun.
But I'm back at civilization now.
Farmington is a pretty nice place. We have the Rocky Mountains just 30 miles to the north, desert on 3 sides, 3 hours to Lake Powell, 40 minutes to Navajo Lake, couple of smaller lakes closer. Lots of riding area, but we are in a battle right now to keep our main riding area open, seems some (not all, just some elitist SOBs) mtn-bikers are trying to close of much of our riding area so they don't have to worry about being run over by a side-by-side.
Lots of oil and gas and power plant industry here. We have 3 major native american reservations on 3 sides of us, lots of casinos *L*... The climate here varies. This morning, it was 4 degrees outside with a windchill factor of -7. High today will be 36. But in the summer, we hit 95 to 100 pretty regularly in July and August. Springs and falls here are nice though. We have a pretty good riding season here though. Even riding in the winters aren't bad because of the sunshine. Yesterday I was out with my Prowler and got about 3 hours in.
It is nice, but you'll definitely want to make a trip here first and spend some time checking it out.

I am spoiled when it comes to water beings I have a natural spring on my property,,plus a drilled well of only 80 FT deep and about 12 gallons a minute from it..dont expect to find that in your area ,,but would like assurance of plenty of drinking water for the rest of our years,, LOL thanks for the info Gp

Actually we don't do too bad here, most wells are in the 45ft to 100ft range. We get lots of ground water flowing underground since we are not far from the Rocky Mountains.
Our real problem is all the water flowing through the rivers all at once in flood stages and then stay low the rest of the year. We tried to build a new reseviour to catch the runoff, but the eco-nazis fought us tooth and nail on it. They thought it would limit their rafting and kayaking. I'm a rafter and knew it wouldn't cause us problems, but it just gave the eco-idiots one more chance to fight anything other than their agenda. We finally got it built, but on a smaller scale.
My dad is the NM Intersate Stream Commission Chairman and past president of the National Rural Water Users Association, so we are well aware of the water woes here. But it's not as bad as it sounds. Our biggest problem lately has been a running drought that has kept us pretty dry for a few years, but it looks like this year might break that.
Global warming??? Not here...*L*. We've had a run of colder than normal winters, it has been anywhere from 4 to 9 degrees at night the past few weeks.

I have done some reseach and came up with dust storms in and around Las Cruces and it isnt anything I am liking a lot .. not sure I would like sand comming into my garage or house for that matter .. We are in the beginning stages of looking so we need to take a road trip and check out these places in person first.. Now I have been looking at Mesquite Nevada .. to me that would be half way in between Littleton and Thousand Oaks where our children live ,,or pretty close to it any way .. Homes are cheap there right now too and it is pretty country and no state taxes ..thanks for all the info as I like facts from people who live there and are not just trying to sell me something and covering up whats what.. GP

Keep in mind, the Farmington area is high desert plateau, at the foothills of the Rockies. So we get both the cold and the heat. The Durango, CO area is a nice place, but the housing prices are going through the roof. Lot of Californians moving in there. Farmington is just 45 miles from Durango, so we get alot of the same weather, but Dgo gets more snow.
Las Cruces is definitely a dusty area, lot more heat, more like the Mexican Sonora Desert terrain.

The water situation really isn't quite as bad in my part of Az either. Our wells are about the same range as up by Darryl. It sounds like our weather is pretty similar. We don't get nearly as cold in the winters, our lowest lows are the upper teens and lower 20s. Our summers get to around 105. We also do not get all the dust storms like las cruses. We are in the foot hills of Mt. Graham.

You dont know how much this helps me decide where to go looking at for a pick of where we might live our retirement years out.. Sure glad you both know about the dust storms as this is my wifes pick and I am for being nearer to the kids so the drive isnt so far. Las Cruces is is about as far south as one can go .

I am still trying to get the Tax differences worked out between the states and with the housing market down thats good but one could get bit pretty hard in higher taxes when the economy comes back and take a real big bite out of ones retirement monies.

So picking a area that is maybe off the beaten path would be a safer buy when it comes to taxes staying close to the same .. I look at this way ,,we get one chance and we better make it a good choice.. so with help from you all I will get answers that realestate people some times either dont know or wouldnt tell us.. Gp
