It’ll be interesting to see the ingredients and equipment you use to brew your beer. Welcome!

I'm brewing with an urn wrapped in a camping mattress haha. BIAB of course. We have some locally grown malts which are cheap and tasteless in comparison. Local Hops here are also half the price of imported American hops but are typically dank/passion fruity, at best they taste like granadilla. We are currently in a prohibition because of the virus so homebrewing is at an all time high with the latest being wort kits that you add yeast to. Crazy times this side. No stock of anything but loads of recent interest in the sport

After 37 years in Carlsbad New Mexico we moved to the Silver City New Mexico area.  I wish we had done it years ago.

In the DMV (DC, Maryland, Virginia area) - but looking to leave this year.  Dropped my retirement papers.  Navy won't let me go to sea, so if I am going to sit behind a desk, I may as well get paid twice for it.
Not sure what to do when I grow up - aside from leave here.  Traffic is crazy and there is a shooting and carjacking every day.
Thinking about the Tennessee Valley or the Gulf Coast.

When I retired I decided to work in Army Aviation (I was Aviation Maintenance in the Army). So… for me that meant Huntsville (TN Valley). Point being: if you want to work in your field go where they do what you do.

You are a better man than me.  I got out of the Navy at the end of my active obligation because I did not want to go back to sea.

First 6 years of service was enlisted with the U.S.M.C, VMFA-232, 77-83, as a structural mechanic for F-4's.
Always land based, and dreaded the possibility of being stationed on an aircraft carrier, never was.
I like the ocean, boogie boarding, surfing, but never cared for being stuck on a boat.

My first 5 were as an enlisted nuclear machinist mate, the last 25 have been as a submarine officer.  Sea is hard, away from the family and I missed half of my 24-year-old daughter's birthdays (marginally better ratio on my son's b-days).  But the chance to lead sailors has been some of the most rewarding experiences of my life. 
I had one sailor, I took to CO's mast twice.  Most guys would kick the kid off the ship and out of the Navy at that point.  I kept working him for three years.  He just made Chief last year.  When I left command he called me his Navy Dad - I disciplined him when he needed it, but he always knew I cared and wanted his success.  Aside from being a parent, those experiences and that impact are hard to match. 
Not to mention there is a ton of fun to be had.  One of my Junior Officers (Justin) had a little brother on a different ship in San Diego.  I let Justin run an approach and attack on his brother's ship, including some great periscope pictures of the destroyer in the cross hairs.  Then I let him email his brother the pictures (I may have sent them to the ship's CO as well).
