    If we both wanted to & we both felt it was safe (relatively speaking) then heck yeah! I’m with you though I’d have to be able to syke with my family occasionally. 

    I thought you were asking about colonizing in the literal sense. I was like oh hell no I’m not populating an entire planet out of this hooo-haa…. LOL

    I might, after my parents arr gone and assuming my sis and her hubby came too. I like my family too much to leave Earth without them.

    No. I would not leave Planet Earth. I’d go to another country, maybe. On Earth.

    FH has already signed us up to be on the waiting list to apply. I would only if he really wants to do it which he does. I have no real trade besides looking pretty ๐Ÿ˜‰ I guess I have a few years to figure out how to do something useful. FH says there is no going back to earth for the first settlers though.

    @MrsLongcoatPeacoat:  Have you ever seen the show TerraNova? It is a similar concept, but was cancelled after one season, much to my dismay. I watched the entire first season on Netflix in a week! LOL.

    I might consider it, but I’d really only be happy about it if my friends and family were all coming along for the ride.

    Hmm. I don’t know. I’ve gotten used to a particular level of sunlight, lol. What if it’s really dark, like northern Earth in the winter?

    Also, what if I have a craving for a particular type of food, but the colonizing organization forgot to bring a supply of Cheez Doodles or root beer? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Free housing and food would be worth considering, though!

    YES YES YES.

    I told Darling Husband for YEARS that if we colonize Mars, I’m SO GOING.  ๐Ÿ™‚

    Depends on the planet.

    I love to travel around the world, but I don’t visit the sulfur mines… KWIM?

    If the planet is halfway as hospitable to human life as earth though, you’ll have to fight me for a seat on the shuttle… :))) I love adventure and exploration.

    I would totally go!  My debt is the worst thing about my life!!!  I would be the teacher on the new world, telling the kids all about Earth as well as helping them make sense of their new world.  That would be AWESOME.
