    I'm in that 2nd home demographic and seriously considered northern New England, having bid on a few places and going as far as a P&S on one. The objection to me is that I wanted to limit travel to...

    Here's to those who plan their treks around the interests and skills of their friends.

    I'd go out on a ledge and suggest that it was sometime between 1987 and 2007. :)

    While I agree that our stewardship of all that is around us, including our own species, is our highest calling, I do not think that signing a pledge has much to do with that. I, too, would not likely...

    Yes, age will slow down one's pace but so will the desire, appreciation and spiritual engagement of the place you are at. Maybe one's age should not be cited in the context of pace but in the...
