Wes and husband Ron searched for many years for the perfect place to retire. They had narrowed their search to the south of Spain, the Canary Islands, and the coast of Argentina, when a friend in Canada mentioned Lake Chapala, a place unknown to them. After a lot of research, they came to Chapala in 2009 and bought a house 3 days after arriving. Retirement and relocation finally arrived in late 2011. With careers in sales and marketing management, real estate investing, general contracting, network engineering, international computer servicing, starting a website bleedinedge.com with friends in the UK, and finally 8 years as senior editor for Anandtech.com, the world’s largest computer review site, Wes could be rightly called a Renaissance man.
