Clark, if you've never been west of the Florida/Georgia line, then you really do need to do lots of research on what it's like to live in Colorado. Luckily you've come to the right place. There's tons of good information on this forum about comparisons between Colorado and the east coast, about where the major employment areas (and “big cities”) are, about the weather, about dealing with altitude, etc.

How soon are you planning your trip? This time of year you can hit bad weather at any time. Right now the weather is warm, but it could change in a matter of hours. Unless you are prepared to drive in the snow and/or ice, you might want to wait until May or June for your road trip.

Just so you know that March and April are the snowiest months in Colorado. That's why I said to wait until May or June. But you'll find that out when you start reading all the great threads on the forum.

That's actually a good time to come for someone not used to snow. They might get to experience it and see if it is something that will work for them.

Good point, Wanneroo. I just worry about people driving all over "checking out" various parts of the state, when they aren't used to driving in snow.

Hopefully one of the threads that Clark reads is about what kind of car and tires he needs to drive in snow.

I absolutely love snow, as long as there is a warm drink in my hand and a nice picture window between me and the snow...

Colorado is not homogenous. For instance living in a rural area away from the front slope is going to be a vastly different experience than living in Denver, Boulder etc. Even more populated cities like Denver, Pueblo, Colorado Springs and Ft. Collins have tremendous differences.

Large dogs need plenty of space. If they are your most important priority you probably don't want to buy/rent in densely populated areas. Your budget will be a huge factor in where you can live.
