Hello friends,

Well, I have been thinking about this for a while but this year's Colorado/Utah/Telluride experience has finally done it - I must move to Colorado and I've given myself two years to do it.

So, question for all you folks - where in Colorado should a current east coaster (though I've also lived in LA, Dallas, and Charlotte) move to?

Right now, my top choice is Boulder. My goal is to keep my same job which means I will need to be near an airport.

So, I wanted your thoughts on best places to live - again, keep in mind that I am not retiring in Colorado, but moving there. Appreciate your thoughts!

well, there are plenty of little municipal airports around, but the only big one is DIA... which is about 45 min. from Boulder (w/o much traffic)...

look at the north denver 'burbs... broomfield, westminster, and others... they might be a happy medium if you are working at DIA...

There's always the Western Slope too. Wink

Grand Junction has a bigger airport than Montrose, but both could be possibilities. Cheers

The weather is better here on the west slope too, and closer to Telluride. LOL

And Montrose now has its very own Smugglers, which certainly came in handy when we got stranded there for two days on the way home!!

Evidently the rain in Dallas prevented us from getting into Dallas, which we all wished we never made it too as it turned out.

Thankfully the folks at the new Smugglers were much more accomodating than the idiots who work for American Airlines (and if anyone reading this works for American Airlines I will not appologize:  your company has the worst customer service I have ever seen)(my one retreat from my previously stated position of never intentionally belittling anyone)

Yeah, Mark, sorry to hear about you getting stranded... <sigh> AGAIN.

Back to BB...

Grand Junction could be worth a thought... it's a couple of hours from Moab for biking, a couple of hours from Aspen for skiing, and a couple of hours from Telluride for festivating!

Those are my two cents...

That was kind of my thinking - why should I be in a funk any day of the year? I shouldn't! How do I minimize that likelihood? Move to CO where the highest % of festivarians reside.  :hop :hop :hop

Yes... just as soon as this conference call discussing "correlation and regression analysis" ends.

Boulder is a great choice, for bluegrass it could be the best (or lyons, nederland).  Example: Tomorrow is Waywords (and I hear Jeff Austin may be dropping in).  Rockygrass is 12 mile away, and there are FREE bluegrass shows/jams nightly.

But my second choice would be Grand Junction, just cause I know alot of GREAT western slope folks.

Thanks, folks, for your perspective!

Grand Junction has been mentioned a lot - how is the music scene there?
