I wouldnt suggest Tucson, pretty boring and not much of an auto scene. Phoenix has alot more going on and its closer to everywhere fun (lake, mexico, SD, sand dunes, ski resort)

when i click on Co i get many diff selections and wanted to see what you guys thought were i should be looking and where i want to stay out of

the selections are

boulder- Not a whole lot different than CA IMO
colorado springs- Very conservative,a nd a nice place to live IMO. We have a few guys in our club that live down there
denver- Depends on how you like the BIG city feel, I hate it
eastern CO- Rural, and quiet
Fort collins/ north CO- College town, but I didn't mind visiting it
high rockies- That's where I wanna live one day. I'm a mountain guy though
pueblo- No opinion, other than seeming to be a run down town after the steel mill closed
western slope- We ahvea few members there as well, and they are outdoorsmen, like dirt bike riding, hunting, fishing etc


now i dont want to live in the middle of nowhere... also this might come as a shock but i am Mexican hahaha.. so somewhere where i wont be looked at bad ( i have been to parts of AZ where i get stared at constantly)

so what do you guys think?

let me know

There are a LOT of Mexicans here, so I doubt that you'd run into anything, as long as you speak english . If you do make the move, we'd love to have you in our club Raul

funny cause i was actually looking at CO Springs.. now the woman would prob like Boulder because she loves socal... but she also loves ranches and used to train horses and compete....

we will see.... it would be easily a year before we could even think about making the move...

Stay away from Boulder.
West/South Denver is good. Northwest Denver is Boulder.
Ft Collins is good.
Colo Springs is good.
Grand Junction/western slope is Great.
Eastern CO is kansas.

Anyplace in the mountains is hard to get in/get out.
I lived in Evergreen west of Denver. 5 ft of snow from a 3 day storm.
The truck would bull thru it, but we had to climb in and out the windows.

Pueblo is small but it's on Navaho lake if you want water.

Raul, glad to hear Colorado made the cut on the places to move too. It is beautiful here! Here is my take on the sections:

boulder-Stay away, a beautiful place, but some of the worst people...tons of hippies who do not like the diesel crowd(including cops)
colorado springs-Nice place to live, mountains are really close
denver-A little too big of a city for me, but there are alot of good suburbs to choose from
eastern CO-Flat, like said above, alot like kansas
Fort collins/ north CO-This is where I live, quite a few cities to choose from (ft collins-college town; Loveland-A little smaller, but a great place to live IMHO; Greeley-Another college town, but stay out of the east side; and a couple more small towns to choose from if you want a little ranch close to things)
high rockies-Very nice if you want to be a mountain man
pueblo-Haven't spent alot of time, but it's a little warmer than most CO places
western slope-Like Nick said, alot of outdoor activities

I hope this helps a little, but I am a little biased for Northern CO. If you need any more info just let me know.
