    Next month I am heading out. My wife and I are going to Costa Rica for our much anticipated retirement. Some selective people should send me a message if you ever think you may be heading that way. I'm sure we will enjoy the occasional guest. "Pura Vida"

      Why are you saying goodbye? I am writing this from Costa Rica right now - living proof that they have Internet and that you can access Hubpages without problems.

        I know it works. It will be a good excuse to walk away. Hows the weather?

          I am near San Jose so we have a fairly steady temperature all year round (80 to 86). Now its the dry season here, blue skies, sunshine, no rain, no humidity. I was in Panama last week and it was much hotter and more humid.
          Whereabouts will you be in CR?

      You were always a good one to debate with ... always held to your beliefs and maintained your integrity, and I alwyas respected that. Though we did not always agree on everything, know that I will miss you and that I wish you well.

      May God be with you and may your retirement be long and enjoyful! smile

    Surely you could still hub in Costa Rica.

      If I do, thats because its raining out. Yes, we will be there for good. I have bought a small place in Panama and CR so that I can bounce between the two without citizenship and a slight change in climate- panama home is jungle and tropical, Costa Rica home is mountainous.

    Enjoy your new life, and be safe. I did my jungle training in Panama and except for the rain, insects, humidity, killer frogs, and snakes, I loved it. Costa Rica is the home of my favorite coffee. Either way I am envious. You've been a good sport more then a few times and I have enjoyed arguing with you. Take care.

    Yoshi, Scott- thank you both. It has been fun. I found you both to be worthy adversaries and Allies. God be with both of you.

    Congratulations!  Costa Rica is a beautiful country!  We've been considering moving there ourselves (more for work than retirement though). 

    All the best for your retirement!
