      The problem I have with serious planning for a second FSP in a second
      state by the people who have already moved to the first state is that it
      looks bad. To be successful in our first state we have to persuade the
      locals that we choose their state because it is unique, we like it, & we
      want to make it "more like itself." If as soon as we get there, we're
      planning to "take over" some other state across the country, it looks like
      the power play that it is. So I think after we choose our state and move
      in, those who decide that they will absolutely not move with us should
      start their own project under their own efforts. The only way I could
      imagine that close cooperation between the 1st and 2nd projects would work
      & not be regarded with suspicion by local populations is to have the 2nd
      state adjacent to the 1st (say, Wyoming and Montana, or Maine and New
      Hampshire). But this would essentially defeat the point for those people
      who are completely opposed to moving to the other side of the country
      (about 10% of our membership right now). So we're back to having them
      design their own project for whichever part of the country is not chosen
      by this project.
