solution is leave meteo area for western colo. we made that jump in 2001 and never looked back. We wave at the huddled, gridlocked, masses going opposite way to/from denver on Fridays and Monday's. it was already bad getttin’ in/out of metro denver for the weekend back in 2001Then again, if I ever mistakenly decide to drive I-70 on a Sunday afternoon again I may be forced to reconsider.

Yep... most of the state still doesn't have decent internet, the front range is one continuous traffic jam, everywhere is ridiculously expensive.It bothers me much more than FireTiger, though we do have a pretty fair sized network here that even I would miss. We toured lots of the state from 2010-2012 and even had an offer on a house in Buena Vista that fell through before closing on one in Longmont.
Montrose area is too much of a dirt pile for me. We couldn't find a town we felt comfortable in. Though I've worked remotely since 2008, you still need a great internet connection , so there are still limitations.
There are outdoors benefits to living here as well, with easy access to Eastern CO, Wyoming and Nebraska.
But damn the traffic, both vehicular and foot. I haven't done a hike within 90 minutes in years.
Dude when I was staying at the Koa in red stone and they had high speed WiFi I was like wtf.Yep... most of the state still doesn't have decent internet, the front range is one continuous traffic jam, everywhere is ridiculously expensive.
For me one of the wildest parts of moving to MT was high speed internet. Like you could get high speed internet in Montana. It's 2021, my mom lives 2hrs from Denver and she still is stuck with comcast, 17-20 mbps internet that routinely shits the bed, over in grand county at our family place you can't even get that.
I left Douglas County for a job in Waukesha county. I will update how it pans out. Gonna miss the county forest land I imagine but hopefully open some new opportunities down here. Itching to try some layout boat waterfowling.Reading this thread is making me value my Northeast Wisconsin residency more and more. Really good fishing nearby, hunting is ok- nothing like out West but good enough with enough plenty of public to keep busy in the northern half of the state.
Aside from the outdoors and as for a place to raise a family, I value where we live a great deal. Great school district, low crime, overall nice area and the Fox Valley is just the right size IMO.
What is good is good man never leave your cakes because someone promised chocolatesJust curious if I'm in similar company on here. I live in NE Wyoming and love the perks of being a Wyoming residency. On top of not really paying taxes there isn't a western state that treats its resident better. I recently had a recruiter approach me about taking a similar job in Northern Nevada as an accountant. I know I would have gotten a 15-20k. I quickly said I wasn't interested because I don't want to leave Wyoming. I live the ability to just buy a deer and elk tag at Walamrt and regularly draw a three antelope tags. I do all my hunting on public land. A close second reason was my hatred of moving but really the hunting perks was why I said no. Don't know if anyone else put here would have a similar mindset.
