Don, I've had it happen a few times that life just takes an abrupt left turn; it always turned out for the better.

I know that some of my brothers and sisters on the forum know that last July 2021my wife of 21 years wanted to be single again. We reached an amicable agreement and I moved out and on. I have relocated to Mesa AZ and settled into an over 55 RV park. Since my arrival in late December 2021, I purchased a new to me 2002 Electra Glide Classic and traded my 30 ft RV for a 37ft fifth wheel Forest River Cedar Creek Silverback. In Feb 2022 I met my new best friend, Peggy she loves to fish (baits her own hooks) also a great shot. My life has turned around for the better in just under a year.

Congrats, but I want to know if she has a boat and a jeep to pull it with and did, she send you pictures of it before you met up.
Just had to ask ::)
Bob
No boat but she does have a Jeep Willys four-door and loves to fish, shoot, hunt and tent camp

Yeah, I dated several girls in college. I took one to the lake to go out in a boat, did some fishing.  When we got back, I handed her the stringer of fish as I was still unloading gear. To my surprise she had gutted and scaled those fish and had them in the frying pan.
We've been married 42 years now.
Watch out now!

I picked up a 14 ft inflatable with all the trimmings including an electric trolling motor. It packs up small enough to toss in the back of the F150 along with our camping gear, so once we are all settled into the 37ft fifth wheel we are planning a trip to the mountains to escape the heat here in the valley. the pups will go with us since we are planning on 2 weeks for our first extended camping trip.

My buddy Ron bought a very clean 2007 Harley Electra Glide Classic with amazingly low miles. The ride to Tortilla Flat is a beautiful morning ride with a great chili lunch waiting for you when you get there. There is a beautiful reservoir lake just before you get to Tortilla Flat. The town population of 12 year-round residents. Back in its heyday, it was a stagecoach station along the Apache Trail. According to legend, the Lost Dutchman mine is located somewhere nearby in the Superstition Mountains. Where I live in Mesa is very central to tons of wilderness of both mountains and desert with many ghost towns and abandoned mines. I have been busy since February between upgrading to a 37ft fifth-wheel trailer to meeting a very sweet and loving lady. My life has certainly seen both highs and lows in the last 12 months but I would have never met Peggy if I hadn't relocated here to Arizona.

Don, sounds like you're in a good place, both figuratively and literally.  Just confirms you should never be afraid to walk through a door when it opens and you're looking for a change.

Peter the change was forced on me and after the initial shock wore off I decided that the best way for me to start over was a complete break from my past life and relocation as far away from the source of my rebirth was necessary. MY first couple of months here in Mesa were interesting but busy organizing and settling into my new environment. I dated a few women but nothing fit so I focused on exploring my amazing new home state.

Shortly after arriving, I bought an inexpensive 2002 Electra Glide Classic to ride and started checking the surrounding area for interesting clubs to meet new friends (women  ;D ) So far Arizona has been very good to me. Next week my sweetheart and I are going into the desert near Queen Creek to shoot some pellet rifles and my new Henery Golden Boy .22  I will post my first impressions on the Brocock Sniper .25 that I won at the EBR last October
