Freedom is an interesting word and supposedly we live in a free country but I have never felt as if I am completely free in this country. With that being said, I have never lived elsewhere so I am likely taking for granted how truly free we are in this country. I love living in this country and likely always will, I am proud to be an American! I guess my bone of contention is with all the rules, laws, etc that don't always make much sense and how detrimental things can be from people making things up or even worse the media pronouncing something that becomes fact in the eyes of viewers. All of this in my eyes has seemingly become much more apparent through the pandemic and I am so ready for it to be over and done with.

 

I am really looking forward to some trips that I have planned and the first one is to an area near Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD so I am really looking forward to meeting both of them! The next trip isn't too far from where I currently live, but it will still be getting away for a week and seeing friends and family that I don't get to see as often as I would like. Later in the year, my brothers and I will be attending a basketball tournament in Las Vegas that our team will be participating in. I am thinking that I will get to see my friend Rocky Dickerson again while I am there. Last year a trip I had planned to California was canceled because of all their restrictions, but I rebooked it for the end of this year so I am excited about that. I will definitely get to visit Jeff Dowler, CRS, Michael Jacobs,  hopefully, Endre Barath, Jr., Sandy Padula and Norm Padula, JD, GRI and others.

 

I specialize in the East Valley of the Phoenix Metro area - Gilbert, Mesa, Chandler, Tempe, Scottsdale, Apache Junction, and Gold Canyon

Brian,

I have no idea, last time we drove to San Diego for a NAR thing, it took us nearly 3 hours.  I have no idea what the train ride would be like, definitely more direct than the freeways.  A

Hi Brian- I've never lived in any other country but I'm sure that there are those like Nina Hollander, Broker and Endre Barath, Jr. who could tell you what freedom means to them. 

I'm so excited that you will be able to travel again and I know that you and your brother will have fun going to Vegas to see the basketball tournament. 

Thank you for participating in the challenge.

Yes, I absolutely realize that I likely take the freedom we have for granted Kathy Streib but at the same time, it seems like true freedom should be able to be enjoyed by everyone everywhere.

That is yet another reason that I don't quite have any desire to travel internationally George Souto and even though I know there are some beautiful places to see, I feel like there is still so much that I would want to see in the USA first.

I wish there was time for a trip to the East coast Debe Maxwell, CRS there are so many wonderful people that I want to meet.  Trips to the East coast won't likely happen until I am done working though.
