Battlement Mesa, CO

“Many of us who retired here came, basically, at the same time — you know, the old timers. We retired and just wanted to escape urban life and this is where we wound up. And so, everybody was so happy, really upbeat, thinking this is a wonderful place. And the activity center was a big draw for a lot of people, as was the golf course. And so, when we came here we talked to our realtor and said we had heard about the oil and gas drilling. We asked, ‘Could you show us what that is. What does a rig look like?’  And he pointed, ‘Way up there, there’s a rig. Oh, don’t worry about anything here because this is a covenant-protected community and nothing will come in.’”
