Moved up from Florida in January - shocking!! Missed our family terribly, but they're all gone now. I'd say we missed it only.... seven years or so. And to be honest, it was fairly brutal. There's so much to do and see out here, and the weather is a lot more tolerable six months out of the year, but there were times we looked back (tried not to), and asked ourselves what kind of mistake we'd made. Working on 9+ years now, and sometimes the discussion still comes up, but there is no UNDO button! It IS home now I guess...But it just depends I suppose. It may not be as difficult for everyone else, I think you have to look at what you're leaving, and the things you hold dear - then decide what you're willing to part with, as you can't replace stuff - you just have to start all over again it seems... My Humble opinion.

Yes. I missed the east coast for 5.5 years, and just recently moved back (to Maryland, no less). I just wish I had been able to move back sooner. However, I only moved to Colorado for a job, and not because I had any inclination to live there.

I can't imagine anyone wanting to live in any other state other than Colorado.

I moved out west about 17 yrs ago, first to northern WY, then to western CO, from the coast of Massachusetts.
My mom and sister still live in MA but I seldom go back to visit.
I love the Rocky Mtn West, the Colorado Plateau in particular, and could never live back east again.

Once I moved to CO I never looked back.

As my daughter once put it, we have two seasons here: almost summer and almost winter. If you have ever lived in a real 4 season climate, such as in the northeast or midwest, you understand the difference. Summer here is most reliable; it has never snowed in Denver or Boulder in July or August. I have seen snow in every other month in the 30 years I have lived here. Likewise, I have seen 70 degree highs in every month here.
