New joiner from Texas

Hi Y'all,

Just joined today after lurking for a number of years; ER will be end of 2014.

I've enjoying learning from everyone and I'm looking forward to contributing as I transition into ER.

Hill country here! Don't think it would be too nice to tell folks I biked yesterday in shorts, then sailed in the afternoon, in shorts. Did have to put on a windbreaker after dark....

Native Californian (4 generations) but moved to Texas in 2003.

As I tell folks, I wasn't born here but I got here as soon as I could.

Welcome Hike-n-Bike from another Texas (east of Dallas) retiree. Jan 12, 2014.
