Hi Norris!

I've listened to the podcast you did about this with Paul, and I must admit I am VERY intrigued. Unfortunately, I don't think it is quite in the budget for my girlfriend and I at the moment. However, I'm wondering what you're open to.

Here's the backstory. My girlfriend and I are moving to Portland soon because she is going to attend OHSU for nursing. After that (Sept 2013), we're hoping to settle in Portland for quite a while. Any chance you would be interested in renting? Or perhaps an owner carried loan? I recall from the podcast that you're trying to relocate to Hawaii, so I'm sure the answer is probably no, but I figured it is worth a shot in the dark.

If you're interested in anything alternative to an outright purchase, please let me know!

Sale pending on the house! (To someone who learned about it by watching Paul's "Sustainable Food - People Per Acre" video!)

Kyle, I just sent you an email...
