Sorry man but prices won't necessarily be the same in 2013....

My advice is to start saving some money now. Get on a plan where you put back $50 or $100 a month or something, assuming you're working.

Save as much as possible because there's not always a guarantee of work right away.

And the best advice I'm going to give you, and pay attention, is GO TO COLLEGE while you are there!

I'm not going to preach to you about how important it is to go to college early in your adulthood, you will either do it, or wish you had done it by my age.

i already got 3500 put aside, but that is to get there AND buy a car. i should have about 7200 when i leave from my job and stuff.

i wanted to go there to board everyday and hike in the summer, but maybe i can take a couple courses online or something. are there any good schools out that way?

Ya the best thing you can do right now is get a decent car, preferable with all wheel drive or a 4x4 truck. And continue to save a lot of money like you're doing. Try and hold off buying the car until shortly before moving, because a car finds a way of increasing your spending habits.

And here's the college to go to. I believe you're a resident after living there 90 days? You need to check on this because it will lower the prices of classes by a ton once your a resident.

Colorado Mountain College

Taking just enough course right off the bat might not be a bad idea if you hate school, but if you don't mind it, then take a full load. Trust me, you will have all the time you need for having fun, promise. College must remain high on your list of priorities for numerous reasons..... College is the new high school and I can't think of a better place to knock most of it out then in Summit County.

Your on the right track by saving this money, just don't let it burn a hole in your pocket and you will make this happen.

Might check into a Honda Element and Toyota Rav-4 also.

Can't go wrong with a Subaru though.... Specially if you can find one with a boxer motor in it.

Good luck

if you want to be in a big architecture place you will need a LEED certified college.

It's 2010 not 2013 why the fuck would you even bother planning so far out now. Besides Breck is highly over rated move somewhere else don't move here, trust me. Also cars are over rated haven't owned one in 6 plus years I get around the county just fine on the free bus. Cost of living in 2013 who the fuck knows what that's going to be like, hell the whole county could catch on fire and burn to the ground this summer so who really knows.

As far as college that's your choice it's not for everyone, I said fuck it I make more than 90% of my graduating high school class and most of them have "real" degrees in fancy things like under water basket weaving, computer intellectual psychology, and yoga.

The kid is 15 or 16, lighten up!

If the kid wants to move to Breck, don't discourage him. Just because your not happy with the city, doesn't mean he won't like it.

And he's going to be 18 when he moves, a car is clutch at that age, especially moving to a new place where he doesn't know anyone. If you need a ride where the bus doesn't go, you ask a friend, he won't have that luxury.
