Thanks for the info. I am in the same situation. The wife wants to move if she can get a job somewhere she likes & I work online. Anybody want to buy a house in Atlanta..?
San Fran area (Oakland maybe) & Denver area are the focus. I think San Fran might be the ticket but the housing prices are pretty daunting.
Breckenridge is probably the wife's dream spot and I would dig anything that I got to ride more.
Not too long ago riding and smoking grass made me very happy. Somehow I got away from that routine and need to get back to my happy place

I'd think Portland and Seattle might work for ya...but they are mix of working class with nouveau corporate....abit different as far as sun, sunny personalities and the cities tend to roll up instead of going late night/all night; but also has world class backpacking, hiking, climbing, dh biking, sailing, kayak, scuba, microbrews and snow...just got to have gortex shells instead of the puffy.
Edit…However Vancouver BC would be much more like ec cosmopolitian with a touch of the queen and Asian influence compared to Seattle and Portland are pretty grungy. Bellingham is nice but not particulirly good for young couples....more like for young families but has great outdoor access.

Aside from Broncos fans, Colorado Springs, and the lack of snow for the past year...
Colorado is awesome.
I've lived in Utah and Colorado, I like Colorado better myself. I would love to try the PNW or Cal at some point in my life though.

Political leanings? Really? I've never been overly opinionated when it comes to my political stance but is there more of a focus on politics out west than there is in the northeast?
Random question, but how is Boulder compared to Salt Lake and Durango?

|gjsnowboarder||Of course if you like beer, Colorado is the only choice if comparing with Utah.|

Boulder climbing; Fort Collins, brewery's and biking, Colorado Springs, biking and hiking.
One really important consideration should be politcial leanings. There is a big difference say from Salt Lake City to different parts of the Denver area.

|killclimbz||The rockclimbing and Mountain biking near and around Denver is world class. There is that. Plenty of backpacking to last a life time. The drive to the mountains is about 90 minutes to most resorts. Weekends are a shit show on I70 though. Contrary to my post, it does snow in Colorado, we are just in the second season in a row of little to no snow fall. It actually looks like it might change starting this weekend, but then again I am not holding my breathe. If it comes through like the forecasters are starting to say, the season could very well be just fine this year.|
