Thanks for the replies. I haven't been able to access my acct for awhile, so haven't answered anyone til now. DH and I are working on paying off some debt and then buying land and building, so what with the building and all it will be about 3yrs before we make it there. Not set on Fort Collins, but definitely don't want a big city. Need to be near the mountains, preferably a river, close to a midwife, and no more than than 1-2 hrs away from Denver.
