Durango would be a great choice. The anti Cal sentiment is small. Mostly people who are jealous. You'll find small minded people in every community. But rest assured nothing formally organized....

Best advice would be to locate where you will work and then figure out what the commute will be to and from there to different areas. Driving into the sun here can get old real quick. Most commute problems are due to being blinded by the sun and the accidents that causes.

Hey there-
Not sure if you have gone down this road. Have you considered Larkspur Colorado? Their pay is better then average. But you could also live in Colorado Springs or the outskirts and have a decent house, then commute. Just a thought... bashep

After 20 years CO is at $50k and in CA I would be over $80k. With homes being $300k+ in Durango, $32k won't cut it. Not to mention there is only high school to try to find a job. And it looked like a place I would like.
You might look in Farmington, New Mexico, a border city next to Durango. It it a fairly big city. Something like the third biggest city in New Mexico. I know many people who live in Durango but work in Farmington and vice versa. Farmington is a desert city where Durango is a pretty mountain city. Some people move to Farmington first and then later when they can move to Durango. Farmington New Mexico info can be found by using a search engine and there is a lot on it. Californiawise I would compare it to Farmington = Palmdale, Durango = Tahoe.

I'm trying to do some research about the state you live in. i want to visit, probably in a "bad month"...{.which is?} to see if my body can tolerate the cold . i would like to find a city {if there is one} where there has less trauma, storms and very little humidity...but yet have beauty all around me. Ive lived in Florida my whole life and I'm tired of the same ole... flat....boring.... heat... well you get the picture. the Florida weather is killing me, now that Ive gotten older. i always wanted to live in Colorado {because of the beauty} but have always heard only the night mares. i would love to find that perfect city or out in the county...{not to far from the city}, cost effective to raise 5 children, with out the worry of them being buried by snow storms. by the way a hummer sound great to buy, is there something else that can do the job, that's a little cheaper.. hee hee.. Is there any way you can help me out ? who to ask than a person who lives there....lol...I'm looking forward to hearing from you. thank you, Dawn Tousey
