Boulder and Denver have a great appeal to both Kate and I.  The problem is, it has a great appeal to a lot of people who are wealthier than us, which drives up the price of housing. 

Too expensiveee . . .  :oops:

Midget, the Salt is deteriorating.

Stay away from there.

You are aging and a mild climate is to your benefit.

Let Kate and I decide your future.

What ever You decide Kate and I have the votes

over You.  I'd do another Bonneville NW Reunion

just to be able to favor Kate in the 50/50 drawing.

Hoping.........

That's all an Old Man has ahead in his life.

Oh, hogwash.

Old men have a responsibility to inspire.

Although I DO think you're lying about your age, I know you'll never shirk that responsibility.

I must have missed this one earlier.  Probably digging through the beer cans in the garage, looking for my snow blower.

Maybe it's in the basement . . . :roll:

Kate already drives a Subaru, which seems to be a prerequisite to becoming a Boulder citizen, but I agree, Neil - that train done left the station.

I really, REALLY do love Milwaukee - I just wish we could move it to New Mexico . . .

Portland is nice. Climate milder, lots to do in area. Until the Juan De Fuca plate  decides to do its thing and the mega tsunami wipes out the whole coast... But then you are on the good side (upwind) of the Yellowstone hotspot super volcano that is past due which will mostly wipe out the entire US> But why worry, there is always  :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:  until then :evil: :roll:

At the end of the day, you gotta live somewhere! 

We're in no hurry.

Chris,
I agree with Neil, Prescott, AZ is a great place. I would move there myself except the wife has to much relation living around here (Santa Rosa, CA area) and once she let be put the extension on my shop the anchor was dropped! The Northern Cal area is way to expensive to move into, luckily I did it 26 years ago when it was not so trendy, but I do live within 10 miles of probably 30 world class wineries and Sonoma county has over 30 breweries! The Demos, who rule California, are quickly working on making us "Detroit West" but I will keep my head down, beer cold and see what happens.

Rex:

You are correct. I lived in Napa for almost a year when I ran a big dealer group out there. As I looked around, even coming from South Florida where real estate prices are stupid high. I could not begin to duplicate what I have here for double the money. On top of that I had a store in Serramonte, Ca and oh that drive from Napa to Serramonte. You never knew could be an hour or three and a half hours! Napa was a great area. On Sundays I would just drive just to see the countryside. Beautiful place. But in the end it just was not practical to relocate my family out there.

Chris, our local pub has Old Speckled Hen on tap, out door seating with hops growing from trellises.

Should I save you a spot?    :cheers:
