My wife is self employed and she can work from anywhere. We have been hunting through this country for a change and we LOVE CO Springs! I, on the other hand am a very skilled and talented electrician....this is in over abundance where we come from! I hate asking what jobs in my line of work are but that is a question. I specialize in remodel for commercial and residential. We are also looking in the Woodmoor area and love to fish and race with SCCA and NASA. Anyone out there?

If you are conservative and religious, Colorado Springs may be a good fit for you, but don't expect it to be a holy utopia. It is a big city and unlike the stereotype that many believe to be the case, not everyone in Colorado Springs is in church on Sunday. It's a fantastic city though, and you should have no problem finding a place of worship and other activities.

As for work, just know that the economy in this city is stagnant, much like everywhere else. The population growth in Colorado Springs has slowed in the last few years, so that may affect your work options too.

But if you can find a job you'll find that it is not an expensive city to live in, and has a lot of great outdoor recreation options at your finger tips.

Good luck!

There is a NASA track south of Colorado Springs just north of Pueblo.

Here is a link to their web page: I-25 Speedway

Just be aware that if you think that COS is filled with only conservatives who are religious, that there's far more diversity than you will expect here. Almost all of my friends here go to church at least fairly often, but none describe themselves as being anymore than middle-of-the-road in terms of the "religosity" (to coin a term). And, most of my friends here are Democrats or independents, or very moderate Republicans.
