Alexander, you could visit Two Acre Wood in Sebastopol.  We are farther away
from airports and major freeways than cohousings in the East Bay and the
Central Valley, but you are welcome to come.  Best way to do that is to let
me know a couple of alternative options for dates in January and February.
What kind of research are you doing--the personal kind to see if cohousing
is workable, or some other kind?  I can't guarantee you a meeting with our
entire group but we could see what we could pull together--depending on your
dates and so forth.

 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
