I spent a few days in downtown Seattle recently. I love big city life. I enjoy the hustle and the bustle and the anonymity of blending in with the crowds. I love being able to walk everywhere, and the quiet oasises you find in the midst of urban sprawl. Alas, the condos across from my hotel were going for $600,000 to $6 million. A bit steep for my pocketbook. So, instead of downtown Seattle, I'm going to be renting an office in downtown Spokane for the summer. It will have to do.

I have a feeling I'm in the minority among Hucksters. Which lifestyle do you prefer, country life or city life?
