I have visited Co for the past 12 years and have fallen in love with it and want to relocate to Parker Co. My inlaws have a little horse ranch near Parker and even though life is good where I am in California I feel like I am missing more to life than what is possible here. Help me out I have a good job that pays a ton of money, a nice home in the best part of the Bay Area and all the toys and activities my family can use. Why do I have such a strong desire to give it up and relax in Colorado? Oh and I am still a young 36.

because you know there's more out there. And you're ready for a change to spice up your life a little. I'm in a similar boat coming from the east coast. I seem to have everything I could want here. I am settled with my life, have a nice home and family here but I feel like if I don't go move to Colorado I'll always be wondering what life would be like out there. I've visited over the last 10 years and am still a young 35 next week! They're calling us!

I say follow your heart! Maybe you can rent out your home for a year, just "in case" you have a change of mind and want to return to the Bay area. You will still have your home! Good luck!

Almost Heaven, you are probably drawn to the laid-back lifestyle and quality of life people have in Colorado. A good idea, like someone mentioned, is to rent your house. How about taking a vacation and seeing if you can get a job in the town you are looking for and if you get one, great! What about buying a summer cabin in the place you want to live and when the urge strikes, go! I know a doctor who wants to live in Durango, when he is older. He bought some property there, with no house, and he goes there every summer. He has a travel trailer to park it on his place. So you can dream but still have your job until you retire. Some ideas to throw your way.
