Looks like I'm moving... Again

I just accepted a new position in my group at work. it's a lateral move with a new boss and a new customer set. Im still doing NFC business development. One great perk is I can work from home and live anywhere.

So Emily and I are leaving California and moving to Colorado in September. I'll keep my California salary, but pay 6% less in state income tax, have inexpensive housing, have good gun laws, an still have good riding. Plus we have friends there. Looking forward to trying something new.

I was shocked at how inexpensive the housing is in Denver. We moving from a city it cost $600/sq ft to $100/sq ft and cheaper taxes. I'll have room or visitors when we buy a place

That's awesome bro. So happy for you

The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

A friend of mine live in Highlands (not Highlands Ranch) and he works from home with frequent trips to the airport. Good area unless you have 2.5 kids and want a big yard. Stapleton is more suburbia and is a short drive to the airport.

Of course being on the west side is a shorter trip to the mountains
