Now I get where you are coming from, no it was never a place to settle down permanantly, I doubt the next place will be either, avoiding commitment is a lifestyle choice isn't it? I reckon Nomoss made being nomadic a lifestyle choice.
My business was definitely not a lifestyle choice, just the most sensible way in the current climate to exploit the result of my labour to repay my investment (it has already) and to create a value that I can liquidate and use for a lifestyle choice. People that come to this area either to buy or create a CDH are universally doing it as a lifestyle choice, that so many return tells me it was perhaps not a wise one for them.
Coming here for 2 years to do up the wreck(which ended up taking over 10) was definitely a short term lifestyle choice, my lifestyle choice as of 2004 was to avoid working for a living.
