In the summer of 2019 as part of our journey toward retirement we sold our home of 23 years in San Diego. When we retired in 2020 we moved to our retirement home, that has 2.7 acres of flat wooded land, located just 8 miles outside of Grants Pass, Oregon in Josephine County.
I enjoy many hobbies ranging from computers to politics. I once volunteered to run the University Usenet News Server. Computers have always interested me. I once started a local singles computer based group (this was before computer dating became so well known) where people would meet for various activities such as lunches, movies, bike riding, etc. The singles group resulted in at least three successful marriages.
In October of 2001 I married my best friend and best companion, Eugenia. Eugenia is from Argentina and moved to the USA in September of 2000. Eugenia worked as a kindergarten teacher in Argentina. Eugenia has spent about 10 years working as a medical insurance eligibility and electronic medical records clerk. Eugenia then worked as a Biology Assistant Administrator in the Bioscience Center at SDSU for about 5 years before we retired.
In our spare time we enjoy many activities. We tend to be quiet soft spoken people and enjoy much of the same things. We go mountain biking, hiking and kayaking. When we lived in San Diego we used to go to Mount Laguna during the summer for mountain biking and Cuyamaca during the winter time for hiking or Sycamore Canyon for hiking and biking. We also enjoy white water rafting and horse riding. Most any activity that is outdoors with peacefulness and serenity we enjoy.
Now that we have moved to Oregon we still enjoy the same hobbies; hiking, biking and kayaking but now we go to many other different areas such as; Rogue River Greenway for bike riding, Limpy Creek for hiking (great for winter days), Fish Hatchery Park (also good for hiking) and kayaking the Rogue River. Time will tell what other adventures we will experience throughout our retirement.
