      A little extra bonus to the decision.  Most of the histories I've read stress MITS and SCP, but near to family and the old home town, that had to have played a role.

      Here's a great vignette of their days in Albuquerque.

      GATES: Next door was a vacuum-cleaner place, then a massage parlor. To get to our offices, you had to walk past the vacuum-cleaner guy. We stayed in this motel down the road called the Sand and Sage. We're talking real sage, not some hypothetical thing. Every morning all the cars in the parking lot had all this sagebrush and tumbleweed that blew underneath them.

      ABQ only had a population of around 250,000 back then.  We've grown a bit since.
