    Hi Santacruz

    Yes the Grants Pass area is very pretty in the spring and summer. I sure got tired of the constant rain or drizzle and dampness in the winter though. I lived in that area when I was @ five to nine yrs old then we moved to Portland. My parents moved all over up and down the west coast. But I always managed to find them.

    Went to school in the old roosvelt school. It was so large I marveled at it as a child. Now it is an office building and really quite small. Ones perspective sure changes from child to adult.

    personally the late 23rd century

    I live on the other side of the Rogue Valley, Butte Falls. It's not as drizzly over this way, but still those cold winters are getting to these old bones.

    I can't wait until the day when I'm considered a local on Maui.

    Wow. A local on Maui? Now that's a goal, I could strive for. How do you move 25 people over there? That's my family. Couldn't go without them.

    But ladies, what about child birth???? Can you imagine having a baby back in those day's or any other type of surgury or ailment. I recently had gall blatter surgury and I can't imagine what I would have done if I were living back then!!! Probably just suffer! I had endometriosis back in my 20's. Can't imagine having to live with that without the treatment that today has to offer. Sorry girls, I'm pretty good with the now! I think times were tough way back then. Doesn't anybody agree with me on this! Alright alright I know I'm a wimp!

    That is true Tink, I would have been dead at 20 yrs old with the first. I almost died with him , due to the blood issue. In fact they told me there was nothing to do but wait and die. So that would have been a factor for sure. But pretending nothing like that would happen , it would be nice to just time travel anyway.

    Europe in the 1790's

    Mulan you like all 25? That's an unatainable goal for me. But the family members of yours that I've met are very special.

    North America-- say 1890-1920-- a really cool but overlooked era in US history. Preferably in the west.

    I could always imagine myself as a ex- Cavalry trooper working in the one of the old trades; blacksmith, cooper maybe a livery owner. Or, in the ranching business.

    Hey there LB.

    So you live in th Butte Falls area. Ben through there I think as a child. I live in SW Idaho and I guess the weather is as good as one can find when one looks at the year round averages.

    If I am right Maui is the island Honolulu is on. I went there once and was dissapointed with what I saw. I was expecting the lush green shown in all the brochures and ads and found it to look a lot like dusty warm So Calif. Only one spot on the island was green and with running water. Had a lot of fun there anyway with all the different things to go see.

    I am told some of the other islands do live up to the brochures and are beautiful.

    Good luck with your wish.
