Hello Everybody, I’m examining whether environmental circumstances (country- versus city-living) impacts how much meaning people draw from their lives. Naturally, I thought this community would be an important perspective to include and consider. This survey takes about 5 minutes to complete. If you have a moment to spare, are 18 and older and employed I could really use your help.

Thanks again,

So we just moved from NC to Southern New Mexico. What places around or in Las Cruces/Deming/Silver/Lordisburg (sp?) have the best deals? Back home we had Aldi and Ross stores, which I believe there is a Ross Store in Las Cruces, and I loved shopping at both. They were affordable and had good quality stuff.

Are there any chains or locally owned places in the area that can compare to Aldi, price wise?

I am on a bit of a tight budget after rent and all that, but do need to get clothes for the kiddos. Also are the Goodwills around here reasonably priced?

Thanks in advance. :)

Hello,

I just wanted to put a little request out here. We'll be heading to Taos soon to fly fish and I was hoping that I could chat with someone about some good locations/holes to fish at. We're bringing all of our fly fishing gear and are hoping to catch some trout!

Let me know if you have any advice or know of any good places to fish that you've been to.

I'm a 20 years old and making the move from Southern California to the Santa Fe area in around 2 weeks. I won't be starting college until next semester so I'm a little concerned about how to meet friends knowing that Santa Fe is mostly a retirement town. I'm wondering if anyone knows of any volunteer groups or classes that I could take in order to meet some nice people around my age group. Thanks in advance!

We are headed to Pie Town at the end of the month, then traveling north up through El Malpais to Grant north up 547 past Mt Taylor, the North and East ending up around Taos ski valley.

We are interested in finding any good remote camping, ghost towns that are legal access, anything out of the ordinary. We travel to NM once a year and we are ready to get off the blacktop and into the dirt more.

Could someone explain why the solar industry is not bigger here than it is? Why do states like Oregon, Illinois, and Massachusetts- not known for their sunny weather- have more vital programs?

recent article I read

Hi there, I was looking for addiction recovery groups that would be in Grants or in neighboring areas. They could be centered around Alcoholism or Substance Abuse in general.

I did a search for SMART Recovery meetings in the area but did not come up with any results. Depending on the area, word of mouth is more effective.

Thank you!

So, I am in CA and I have a job interview in Hobbs on the 23rd. Now, I know a lot of NM residents don't think very highly of Hobbs, but i want to know if anyone can give me an objective, unbiased assessment of possibly moving to Hobbs, CBad, Artesia or Roswell? Most people (my wife included) think I'm an idiot for wanting to relocate to NM, but i think NM would be a lovely place to live

I was recently offroading in the area after Ocate heading towards Angelfire and saw an unfamiliar sight.

A cinnamon/honey with black tipped bear cub appeared on the road out of the brush then quickly ran up the trail. This happened for a while until it ran into the stream's ravine, but it did not match what I thought were the typical leg length and head shape of a black bear.

Am I wrong to think brown bears are still in New Mexico? I must have seen a color variation of black bear but it was too lanky legged and broad headed for one. Do any of your outdoorsmen have any advice on identification as this person from the east coast feels that he's mistaken in the identity?
