Decisions decisions!!!!

Well, after I graduate from school (2 more semesters) I want to relocate out West somewhere just for a season. I live in New York though...Im used to that big city life and road rage and rude people and New York accent...everything that comes with NY lol

It would be amazing to move out to Colorado for a season, but I dont know if I could wing it in the summer time! It is definitely something me and my BF def talked about...

Snowboarding in Colorado everyday?? I think my heart just started beating faster with excitement lol

[QUOTE=shredbetties;172380]i vote jackson hole! it can be a bit spendy, but i stayed there once in some weird cabins with king size bunk beds that were pretty cheap. and had king size bunk beds. oh, and kitchens. Plus, there's a bus that takes you over the pass to targhee, which is in some kind of freak snow location where they get 200 inches extra of snow each season? Bit of a mellow grade, but still fun.

Oh and you say you stayed in some weird cabins...haha you should see the places me and my crew stay in!! 29.99 a night, along with the bugs and things growing out of the walls lol, but hey, its 29.99 a night thats all that matters! lol. Its a snowboarders life

this is something that only people who've never lived outside of the east coast say... it's quite nice to do without the road rage... and the rest of the stuff (art, culture, whatever) you can find pretty much anywhere. Especially in a resort town where they're trying to attract rich new yorkers. I've lived here and out east, and out east sucks.

I did have to learn to talk more slowly and quietly though.

Summertime in the Rockies is pretty sweet. World class rockclimbing, kayaking, mountain biking, hiking, and summer snow if you don't mind earning it, to be had.

Denver is a city, not of New York magnitude by any stretch, but it has a little bit of everything. The access you get from D town is hard to beat.

I think denver does pretty well for culture for a city of its size too - probably because it's the only notable city in a rather large area, everyone always makes a stop there.

NYC is known for the road rages...not NY in general. Growing up in CNY I can say I meet the same share of arseholes on the road all over there as I do anywhere in New England or anywhere else.

I will say out west is more mellow. After going to Windells camp this summer I met some very chill people and was surprised how laid back they were, more attuned to my nature. Got to know a kid who was from NYC originally himself who agreed on the mountain here in the East it's more common to hear a profanity in response instead of a "are you alright?" or "sorry man my bad". After I told my brother about it we're leaning towards a trip out there this winter. I'm personally thinking of moving out west to Montana or Wyoming sometime down the road myself.

Sorry to thread jack ^_^

Government - If you think the problems they created are bad, just wait until you see their solutions.

Screw being normal

Naaaaaa there is no where else I would rather live then in New York. I could never live a slow life out West. No thanks. And there is no where else in this country you can find the diversity you can find in NY. The only reason I would move is for the snowboarding. Other then that. Its too slow for me out West.

Yea it is NYC for the road rage, not NY in general. You can go upstate and its a whole other world. It definitely is different out West for sure. But you can be from NYC and still be laid back. I am one of the most laid back people you will ever meet. If you think the profanity on the mountain or the road is bad you should see a Jets game lol.

hahaha the fact that you're planning a vacation already makes you less laid back than some of the kids i know... who are so laid back that it would never occur to them to make a plan or decision in advance, since it ruins their going with the flow.

They would also probably not use words like "hard" in reference to themselves.

Oh and to get this back on topic - jackson hole! It's also beautiful. And if you have beacons, has some sick slackcountry.
