Just accepted a job offer up there. Moving in the next 10 days. I can't remember if anyone is up that way.

I'm currently living in Aurora, just outside of Denver proper. Beautiful area. Really love the landscapes!

Nice. Been there. And yeah, it's very scenic up there.

Job's south in Lakewood. Probably going to hole up in an extended stay suite for a couple of weeks while we find a place to live. Rebuilding life from the ground up again, so...

But, I'm damn happy to have a new job.

I live in Superior, just outside of Denver proper. It can take a while to get some places in the city but I can't complain, living very low rent on my step-uncle's ranch. Great place to live if you like fishing, hiking, etc. spending time outdoors.

Ya I'm in Breckenridge, up the hill. If you want to go ski/snowboard at the resort I can get you at least half off tickets... maybe even free fiddy. Good luck to your sir.

Thanks, Realm. Just wishing the job wasn't at the (almost) bottom of the totem pole, but I'll move up quickly if I can gut out the call center portion. They will need management/trainers as they keep expanding this center, so there will be opening for me to move up quickly. Brandy and I have dreamed of living up there for 20 years now, so it's pretty exciting. Just wish my cash flow situation were better. Scraping up everything we need to move. Going to be tight for a month or two, but getting a sign-on bonus and relocation allotment will help.

I'd love to live on a ranch, Cruel. I'm started looking into learning blacksmithing, so a nice open space where I can make noise would be great.

I've lived in mountains a lot, but have honestly never ski'd or snowboarded. Hopefully once I get settled in and we get a chance to get out some I can learn. Might take you up on that offer down the road, qs!

That would sound great aside from all of the kids running around. :P

You guys waited too late. Mine's 21, on his own and doing better than his mom and dad, although that's changing starting today. We leave out tonight, driving overnight and will be in Denver tomorrow.

It's just that the world isn't ready for mini-kitty.

And we made it just fine. Spent the weekend settling in the best we could.

Awesome. I hope you guys get situated quickly. Is there still snow on the ground or has it nearly all melted? (You'll probably get some more snow before the season's over regardless.)

I'm just north of Denver in Thornton even though I hardly know anyone on this forum being a Soccer Brawler who wandered into GB pubs every once in awhile. Nice place to live but rent has gone WAY up since I moved here about 5 years ago. Pretty sure I know what call center you are working at as I saw some openings listed in the last several months. Good luck!

If you enjoy watching NHL, NBA, or MLS you can get tickets to Avs, Nuggets, and Rapids for very cheap ($10 or less for most games in you buy on gameday) at flashseats.com. Rockies are really cheap too (from stubhub, etc... they don't use Flash Seats). Broncos are very expensive although they do sell a handful of half price tickets to ever game, usually in late July. Have to get a bit lucky to get them even if you try to buy the second they go on sale. Got some last year though.

Not too much snow in Denver this winter and mostly too warm anymore. Mountains still getting a decent amount. Ski season lasts quite awhile here.

I'm a Stars fan first, but a Avs fan as 1a. Both have sucked bad this year.
