My thread of a few months ago, is now ready to be updated. Colorado is not yet in the rear view mirror, but it is getting closer fast. I am sure many thought I was just all talk, and would never make the move. But, I have a contract on the house. Closing is later this summer. I have pulled down all my big game mounts, have my books and furs boxed up. Painters are coming next week to repaint most of the inside of the house, I have just a few more small things to fix on the house before it is no longer mine. My employer / friends have decided to pull up stakes too, we are all getting out. Currently I do not have a place to move to, but I have most of the summer to find one. I have been selling off tons of stuff, throwing tons of stuff away, giving stuff away, and shortly I will be down to only the stuff that matters. Nearly everyday I am reminded of why I want to leave Colorado. I just bought a new to me car, a 1996 4Runner. A $2500 car cost me $216 to register! They actually have an extra fee for cars over a certain age!
