Appreciate all weighing in. Just recently sold a vacation home in Santa Fe and while I worried every day about something going wrong with the house, I would not have those concerns here. Good suggestions about zoning laws and power, etc, that would be a certainty before any land was purchased. Great thing about having a place I could always depend on having available, many of my other trips would be in NM, CO, Utah, etc and I would be much closer to venture out from there.
If you are reading this, it means I have made it another day!!!
