wow---we are a little sensitive aren't we?---vulgar materialism?--turned down for med school?--gee i wish rather than working to make a living to invest in "your" local economy i could be like all you guys--enlightened, wise, perfect, with a monopoly on community, and able to spend my days skiing or hiking or biking and not have to tolerate such "money mongering" jerks like me--
well BoatMaster--if that's what you think--i will leave--and take my tax money,and all the money i spent building that nice house and the second condo i own, and all the money i spend on the mountain, and all the money i spend in the restaurants and bars, and all the money i spend buying cars from steamboat motors, and all the money i spend buying bicycles, and all the money i spend on ski equipment, and all the money i spend on locals taking care of the grounds, and the houses, and the snow removal, and all the money my guests spend when they come to visit on ski lessons, and equipment, and lift tickets, and all the money i spend on golf memberships, because, boatmaster, the nice thing about being a lawyer is i can go someplace else where i feel welcome--and good luck with your local economy and your ability to live this wonderful life which is largely possible because "lawyers" like me drop a lot of money in your town
i guess i would call myself one of the often criticized second home owner's in steamboat--we fell in love with routt county more than 10 years ago--now, the sea of dying trees and all of the development, its just a different place, a place we may very likely sadly leave--will it hurt tourism--of course it will--i haven't been to the boat since christmas--kind of dumb to have an empty house
