I Love Denver, but itís not cheap here. CO Springs isnít cheap either. The rest of cities it would be tough finding work.
After your suggestion I'm also considering Lubbock and Amarillo, I totally discarded them, but is worth taking a look.

Thank you!

I suggest you probably leave them in the discarded pile. If you go to college in Lubbock, at Texas Tech University, well that's okay (I did). But Lubbock doesn't have a lot to offer, and it is in the middle of nowhere.

Amarillo is kind of a "cow town" -- kind of the last gateway before the dry and dusty farming lands of west Texas.

There are dry places that have more to offer.

It felt about 1993 last time I was out there.

Didn't feel like a particularly welcoming place.

Whatever you do, don’t go to New Mexico. The schools and health care are terrible down there. We escaped to Colorado 3 years ago!

Try Tucson, Az or places near there, e.g. Oro Valley

I lived in Tucson while in Engineering school in the early 70s. I really liked it.

I have (4) ex-CoS friends who retreated to Tucson (all are in Oro Valley). (3 are ex-Engineers)
