Hi Bob1962,
I moved from SA to Colorado Springs about 5 years ago. I totally love it here...the quality of life is great! People just seem happier here! If you search for "Mike from back east" you will find a lot of helpful info.
Best of luck to you!! I certainly don't miss the heat and humidity!

There IS fishing here, but this isn't a place I'd have as a destination in mind when my favorite hobby is fishing, imo.

Generally avoid the south-eastern part of town and you'd find a lot of great places to live. I love Old Colorado City, west of I-25 and around Colorado Blvd.
