Husband did get the job, btw! We're moving 11/28!
Congratulations and have a safe trip!
Just FYI when you get here... we don't put "the" before I-70 or any highways or interstates. It's just I-70 or I-25 etc. It will identify you as a Californian more than anything. Right qfrost?

Wow, that will definitely take some getting used to! I've lived in California my entire life... guess I'd better start practicing...

I'm just poking a little fun at the CA lingo. No worries, doubtful anyone will hassle you about it.
Best of luck with your move!

Smile Just moved to Denver from Vegas

Hi we just moved from Vegas to Denver and went through the Rockies. It was really ok. We have a small Mazda and the largest uhaul truck they had. We were just fine. A couple of tips and a heads up: If the passes are closed be prepared to sleep over in the towns near vail. like Eagle so have that expense ready. Also make sure you have de-icer windshield washer fluid in your car BEFORE you leave CA. Other than that you should be great! You will LOVE Boulder it is really beautiful there and very nice people.

The biggest hurdle now (provided he gets the job) would simply be: the move.

We currently live in Southern California. What would the drive be like through the mountains near the end of November? Could we make it in two sedans and a moving truck if we're careful? Or would we be better off going below the mountains into New Mexico, and then heading up?

Obviously I'd rather save the time if we can, and enjoy the view, but I'm not sure how harsh driving conditions can get up there... wanted a bit of insight so we can make some preliminary contingency plans.

Thanks, much appreciated!
