Hi Craig I'm a relatively new member. Just reading and learning. I would like to know if any of the bus tour focus on "Affordable housing" or could someone organize one. Most of the cohousing I see is way out of my range. I am a low-income disabled person. ( Don't need accessible husing just the cheapest.) Many Thanks, Diana S.

(4) Are you attending the Feb 2 Northern California East Bay Tour? Taken? Yes - I've taken two cohousing bus tours (presented by Coho/US in Northern California & Denver) - In 2006, I led one Seattle-area Coho/US cohousing bus tour and two Seattle-area FIC intentional community bus tours that included cohousing communities What I liked: - Chance to see cohousing communities of several styles in a short period of time - The perspective of the tour guides... they were quite well informed - How easy it was (to take, not lead) - just show up and enjoy the ride and communities - The passion or juice that the people living in cohousing had about their lives together - Talking with others interested in cohousing on the bus itself - Community is expecting to be visited and friendly toward group - They were very well organized, great logistics, comfortable bus What I would like to be different: - Free/Cheap; I would prefer that others just pay for my share of the costs - Timing; I would prefer that they were scheduled around my needs - Time per community; more time at some and less at others - Start/End; I would prefer that they picked me up and dropped me off wherever I wanted Attending Northern CA East Bay tour (Feb 2 '08 http://cohousing.org/tours.aspx)? - No, wish I could, but can't be in area - I plan to attend one of the other three California tours (May 3, Aug 9, Oct 25 - http://cohousing.org/tours.aspx) - May also take one of the pre-Conference Boston tours (June 12-15 - see http://cohousing.org/conference_2008.aspx). -- Craig Ragland Coho/US Exec.
