Hi Paula - welcome! I live next door in Arkansas and have passed through many times on the way to NC! This site is a little tricky, enjoy the games and points-but I can pretty much tell you that if you bid on something an AARP employee will beat you to it! So, see when it ends and bid on it 3 seconds before it expires! Still may not work! As you will find on the blog, none of us ever wins. Susan

Dave. Currently in Austin. Can't wait to leave. Adventurer of sorts, road trip junkie, professional slacker, a wu wei kinda guy. I'll be "retiring" early (62 & 2 months) the end of 2018, and haven't the foggiest as to what I'll do next. Don't care. I don't do politics and I don't do religion. I *do* collect old coffee pots, vintage razors, and coins (all of which have gone to my three grandsons). And, no, I'm not married. I'm a veteran, ex-cop, former ditch-digger & welder, and used to do a bit of gunsmithing...jack of all trades, master of none. I've done a lot & seen a lot. Got lots more to see & do before my time on this rock is up.

Rock and Roll and concerts are my all-time favorite things to do! 4 in the past year and Metallica this month. Only problem, I only have my family to go with because we have to drive to Tulsa, Kansas City, St Louis or Texas. I don't have GPS and I can't read a map and Drive! I have been to well over 325 concerts in my life, of course theatre also. Heck, I even took my grandmother to see Liberace - now that was an experience for the books! I believe Iron Maiden has the best overall tour plans: lead singer is a pilot, they own the plane and lots of family involved. That was the concert I chose to take my 14 year-old grandson to as his first. His parents took him to see Korn and I probably shouldn't have turned down that free ticket offer - nothing like a real man in a kilt!

I lived in San Diego 23 years and miss it so much - so much to do and see! Lots of free activities, Coronado is great either side - outdoor music in summer, shops and great restaurants. I highly recommend the hotel for the best Sunday brunch. Balboa park, especially during holidays. Gaitanos Pizza (spelled wrong)-there's 3 that I know of one on India St, one in Casa de Oro no Lakeside. Have fun!
