You're right. That's a classic should have thought before I said.

I've been following this thread and I so appreciate all the responses I've read. I too have felt the pull of New Mexico, so much so that my family and I are packing it up and moving there this summer. I really hope to be able to look back in a year and see some of the changes I'm reading about.

We have many reasons for moving, but high on the list are many of the things that people are saying they love about the state. We are escaping the expensive, crowded living conditions here, and are tired of the rat race of "buy more", "be more", "do more" that is so prevalent here. Being stunned by beautiful sunsets and night skies, slowing down and experiencing life rather than racing through it, being in a place with a sense of itself and it's history, these are all things I am looking forward to.

Hence why I am not on the East Coast either. NM seems to be a really special place. I am glad you are enjoying it here. Why be miserable?

The landscape, open space and sky, and smaller towns, the more laid-back style will change someone.

Default Can't Wait!

My wife and I have 2 acres of land down in Deming. She has been there before, but I visited for the first time about two weeks ago. I immediately fell in love with the place.

We won't get to leave Oregon for 8 years still (permanently, that is) and by then I hope I don't drown in all his flippin' rain. I originally moved here from CA (about 25 years ago) to get away from the smog and crime and people and traffic and high prices and rat race, but it's all coming here too. From what I could tell, most of NM is free from all that high pressure stuff.

Believe me, laid back and calm is good for you. Makes you live longer! And I think being in NM will make me appreciate living longer.

One of the many reasons I want to get my kids out of a state where education is not on the list of important things in life.
