    Cool Retirement...

    As we all know, when we hit retirement age we come face to face with the fact that it may be time to relocate. The big question is: where to? Here are some tips.

    4. You would give anything to be able to splash cold water on your face.
    5. You can attend any function wearing shorts and a tank top.

    9. The 4 seasons are: tolerable, hot, really hot, and ARE YOU KIDDING ME??!!

    "1. You carry your $3,000 mountain bike atop your $500 car."

    This is more true then you know in a lot of areas of Norcal
    and areas of the country that have a big cycling area. I have seen people go to great lengths just too fuel their passion every weekend.
