That's cool, it's really a joke for myself too 'o) I thought I'd have the house built in a couple of years... it's been 7 years now, and still not finished. I also have never owned property before, and forgot to include Property Taxes in my plan to duck-out and slow down... There's just no way to really do it, but as you say, "deliberate" is a fair way to put it, it certainly is more aware of just living, and prioritizing what's really important. I Lived in Laramie most of my life, sounds like a good adventure. We are now half way between Laramie and Cheyenne. I lived in Denver and Northern California a couple of years, but ended up back here... no matter how I try to engineer or justify a change, it just seems this is the right place to be... as I've been constantly reminded of lately, "truth is stranger than fiction"
