RE: San Diego/Southern California CoHousing

 I'm guessing it could simply be a lack of information.  I don't think most 
people in San Diego have heard of CoHousing.  (Maybe I can change that, because 
I think I'd like to live in a CoHousing development!!)  I thought land values 
were higher in the North, although I suppose it really depends on what area 
one's talking about:  beachfront, downtown, rural.

To help with my research I'm thinking about visiting one or two cohousing 
developments in January/February.  If you (you meaning the entire group) would 
be welcome to having me stop over for a day, I'd like to hear from you.
