    Just wondering - which of you are native New Mexicans? For those who aren't, where are you from and how long have you been here?

    Born in Paducah, KY. Came here 32 years ago at age 10. Consider myself a grafted nativo. I love New Mexico better than any other place I've lived. The food, the mountains, streams, lakes, hiking, big sky, sunsets, cultural diversity, architecture... everything!

    Born in 1964 in El Paso and immediately moved to Las Cruces. In 1965 we moved to Hawaii. Then in 1970 we moved back to Las Cruces and in 1972 we moved to Pueblo, Colorado. I was there until 1985 and I moved to Southern California. In 1991 I moved to Denver and was there until 1998 and I left and became a rambling man checking out the Eastern part of the country and found my way to Jacksonville where I met my wonderful wife Yvonne. We moved to ABQ in August of 2002 and we just love it here!

    Man, that's alot of traveling. I moved from Albuquerque in 1983, to Rio Rancho. Been up here ever since. Not quite as exciting. We used to live right by Wargames West. I miss that place.
