In SW CO, they bitch mostly about the Texans taking over. Every year that gets more and more drowned out because the displaced Texans actually are taking over. A lot of native Coloradans are entitled fucksticks, though. They can eat a dick.

I'm just glad to be in such a rural area that I'm insulated from the crowds, bad drivers, crime, and the general bullshit that comes with city life. And I damn sure don't miss the big flat oven that is Texas.

We drove through CO on teh way to WA and were disappointed in the scenery. It may have just been the path through we took, who knows.

I'd be curious to see what SW CO is like because we were nowhere near it.

Ya, if you were disappointed in the scenery, you definitely weren't near the San Juans (SW CO). I-25 splits the state (almost) in half vertically, and everything on the Eastern half might as well be Kansas. The Western slope is where it gets good, and the SW portion is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful areas in the world. Then again, not everyone is into high mountain peaks, dense forests, lush valleys, crystal clear lakes, rivers, streams, and waterfalls, wildlife, ghost towns, and extremely remote wilderness. I sure am!

I've been shopping real estate in both DFW and Sacramento here recently, and though it's not mountain country, even the moderate hills and established evergreens you'll find in Sacramento is simply so much more appealing to me. Add to that Lake Tahoe is a day trip, and it's so much more enticing there versus here. While, yeah, you can get more sqft for the money here, it's basically more "meh" per dollar.

It's also less Democrat per dollar... not that I'm a republican, fuck both parties, but I have no problem identifying the lesser of two evils.

Aaron, have you looked at WA state, it's beautiful up here and the cost of living isn't far off from DFW area.

Must be something like WA, where the western portion is green and the eastern portion resembles west TX.

Speaking of Texafornia, I fully expect Beto to resurface sooner or later and run for office. Sad thing is if he does he'll likely win if it's a Senate race he gets into.

We've discussed a move to Seattle, it is beautiful, and an option for the current position I'm intervieing for, but not currently on the radar. My step daughter's dad and his family are in Sacramento, so that's the only consideration for now, we are comfortable enough in Frisco that really Sacramento is the only move that makes sense.

Once my stepdaughter is on her own this all may be subject to change, and Seattle is a logical next step in terms of career path.

For those that have not heard, Charles Schwab will be building their new HQ in Westlake Texas. Bring on the next influx on California migrants. Maybe now 114 will become an actual freeway without stoplights.

To that end, I took GB home today instead of 121, and it was flowing good with that new lane. I can't wait for 121 to get finished (if we are still here).

By the time it's "finished", we'll need another lane.

I was recently talking to a company in Bellevue. I love Seatte area. If I can find the right move, I'm gone. No secret I've never been a big fan of DFW, but lately my hatred has grown.

I left 10 years ago and haven’t looked back. Best decision of my life.

"Do it."

The political side sucks, but there is a reason people deal with it and pay big money to live in certain places. After commuting this past year, I'm pretty well over it. If Sacramento doesn't work out my long game is to land something in Seattle, once Lina's off on her own.
