Looking for experiences and ideas of how is the living over there. The people, work, prices etc.

  • One thing I have for you. My DH went to Colorado springs for a business trip. I went with him. Because of the altitude I had a headace for the first 3 days. I was told to drink a lot of water.

  • I'm a native Coloradoan and I love it here. Any area in particular and what type of work are you looking for? Where are you coming from?

  • I'm nearly a native in Colorado. It can get cold here, as well as quite hot. It is very dry here, so it is different from the more humid climates. You do need to make sure you are well hydrated, even in the winter. DH and DD do occasionally get nosebleeds from not drinking enough, but the boys and I don't. There is a lot of good here, as well as some bad - and that bad will be different for different people. We have gorgeous scenery and national parks, reasonable schools (though mine go to private) and the economy doesn't quite suck, but it's not great either.

    You are more than welcome to pm me with questions about specifics.
