Jan 17, 2009 - Missile and Church

Our first stop of the day was at the Titan Missile Museum. The silo became operational in 1963 and was deactivated in 1982 as part of President Reagan's policy (announced in 1981) of decommissioning the Titan II missiles. All operational Titan II silos throughout the country were demolished except this one near Green Valley which is now a National Historic Landmark. The Titan II was the largest operational land based nuclear missile ever used by the United States. The missile had one W53 warhead with a yield of 9 Megatons (9,000...

Oct 18, 2008 - Green Valley, AZ

Arrived in Green Valley on Thursday, Oct 16 to continue our quest for the "perfect" place. The housing market here is very confusing. New houses are selling for a lot less than existing houses. There are loads of existing houses. Hmmh! We are enjoying the great weather and the RV park has a pool and hot tub. We are meeting friends for breakfast at Coach's Sports Bar.

Nov 8, 2007 - How Green Is My Valley, Arizona

Green Valley has only been developed over the last few years - seemingly a bunch of roads and accommodations joining up golf courses. The highway even has lanes marked out and the supermarket has parking lots especially for golf carts. The Wyndham resort was like a collection of fully fitted and functional show-home apartments. The strange thing was that, when we arrived, there were only two or three other guests. Apart from one night when a small herd of Wyndham management staff turned up for what was clearly their management development...
