Dazed, all the good things you said is how I thought it would be.

George Zimmerman volunteered to patrol at night.

/m28695 Cali, my basic NALCrest bills are $403 rent, Electric $120-150 in the summer and $15 a month for pest control. My Social Security takes care of the rent, so my CSRS and State retirements take care of anything else. That is not even considering MRD distribution. I could live on just my CSRS if I had to. The biggest thing I think about here is the Alligators in the lake when I take my morning walk around the lake. I haven't seen them the last 2 days. God Bless the NALC for creating such a haven. I don't know why other unions don't do this. This place is really a utopia if you want the quiet life free of the upkeep of a house. You can do as many activities as you choose. There is no drugs or crime problem here, and volunteers patrol at night. There is also a fire and rescue station right across from the office.

Yes, that's the obvious Draw. Rents where I live are averaging over $1,000 a month for one-bedroom apartments....and I live in a "Traditionally" Low-Cost area (simply not so, anymore. It's really a "High-Rent, Low-Wage" town).

The rent is so low at Nalcrest that you don't mind what you spend to keep it cool.

/m28689 No, not even with a long, blonde ponytail. Maybe in a different Setting...

/m28688 I think there is probably a group that watches for posts on the Nalcrest forum. Anything you post there regarding your Nalcrest experience would be appreciated, also.

/m28687 What, BB??!! You don't like a pretty, well-built woman with a gun and handcuffs? Is EAP available to retirees? You need help.

/m28686 Cali, I am pretty well settled in now. I have much to keep me busy through at least January. It is pretty quiet here in the summer because all the Snowbirds who fly north in May and start coming back around November. My exercise routine is going a little slower than I intended, but I just turned 71 yesterday so I have to take that into account. I am walking 2.5 miles a day, and want to increase that to 5 miles, but I have to do that in increments. I have a pet gator in the lake named Vasya - a Russian woman named him for me. My daughter is having a baby in October and we had lunch yesterday for my birthday. I have become the star of my Trivia team and the leader of my group says she always wants me at her table. This is the only forum I check in on here anymore. The politics forum is just too nasty.

/m28685 Not necessarily PTSD, but it did change my life in one way. At the time, I had just gotten off work and Detoured toward the Liquor Store for a 12-pack of beer (none at home). Of course, I had not gotten there yet, when I was Snared in this awful wreck. A female cop took me in her squad car and got RIGHT in my face, obviously to smell my breath. She wasn't my type, but most would consider her a very good-looking and well-built 30-ish young woman :) Anyway, after that incident (late 1980s), I quit drinking completely, for life. No "Story" there, no "Rehab", just a personal preference. I can imagine how it might have gone, had I had JUST ONE beer on my breath. And I drive VERY carefully now, like the Old Man I am.

Dazed, are you in a routine there at Nalcrest? How has this summer treated you there?

Boss, your last statement /m28682 is why (for this case) more statements would have been nice. Mulligan, thanks for that informative post. Boss, your story about the woman, the rain and white pick up is incredible. Fast thinking to get the license plate number.

Yep, just between my husband and I there was a total dispute about how far WE were when I saw the accident. That will Will Rogers quote is funny and I feel so certain about what I saw - and my husband didn't see the impact - only the vehicle standing on its rear bumper at impact - and yet while we were in the same vehicle we disagree.

I am going to go out of my way and drive back by the accident location in my husband's high up truck (we were in when it happened) and see if I could have filled in any blanks. (Will Rogers - but I am SURE of what I saw).

Boss, I am having a little PTSD approaching lights and feeling I am going to see another accident. Did you have any of that after the accident you described? I had that dread/flashback for at least 5 years after receiving whiplash from being hit from behind in 2006.
