Ok, I don't speak Spanish so 'updato' is my own word... and I was yelling it when I thought it.
Jo has leaned (caved?) towards the mountain home... so I would put the chances now at maybe 60% mountains, 40% suburbia. I'm maybe 70%/ 30%. With the dream home comes greater hardships. I made the comment that the added hardships may be a very good thing for our children to experience. Hardships would be things like not living down the road from Wal-mart. Having to deal with a real winter, not the Boulder mild winters. We'll be just 20:00 from Boulder though! Space will be a challenge in the mountain house. It's not exactly a large home- 1600 sqft but it does have a large outbuilding that has potential in this farm boy's eyes. I grew up being able to explore old farms, creeks, forests (kind of)... the dangers I faced and my attitude towards them can be summed up with my mother telling me when I was just a small boy- as I headed out in the morning to explore- "Be home before dark, the coyotes come out at dark" and my reply being simply "I can out run a coyote"... true story.
