Well folks, I'm packing the truck and leaving Wisconsin for Colorado today. It helps that the temp is 12 degrees here and Colorado has been in the 50's!
Can't wait to get to Delta!

I haven't had much luck in the job search. In fact, out of the 18 applications or resumes submitted, I've only had the courtesy of two responses. (I guess business etiquette is at a low standard everywhere, happens regularly here in Wisconsin). But this only makes me more determined!!!

1500 miles, me, a husband and a dog...here we go...

Think that is far from WI to CO??

Try this... we are driving 2 cars from Orlando, FL to Denver, co! That is 1,900 miles!!!

Is it worth it?

HELL YEAH, Orlando sucks, despite having nice winter weather. The rest of the year the Orlando weather sucks and the cost of living, too high.

You will love CO, it's great, definitelyl NOT as cold as WI, New Englad or the Midwest.

Good luck!

I'm just guessing here, but ... does anybody else get the impression Marylou has already "emotionally divorced" herself from Florida?

Wink been here two months, here's the update

The people in Delta CO and surrounding areas are wonderful people...warm, open, helpful and very proud of their communities. The weather is great, I'm so happy to be away from the continuous snowfall in Wisconsin. The only snag that I've run into and I wish I had been more prepared for this...extremely low wages...employers say it's because it cost more to live here. I'm not experiencing that, I think it's quite reasonable to live here and you know what? A happy meal at McDonald's costs the same as Wisconsin! The Wal-mart trip costs just about the same. I applied for a job with a personal care/homemaker service, just as a bridge until I found something else. $7.00/hr, no benefits! These employees have a big responsibility for the older folks in town, I give them alot of credit for taking that responsibility. Many of their clients are elderly, quite frail. I didn't think I wanted to take on that responsibility. For $7.00/hr, the most important question I would want to ask is "Paper or Plastic?" So, I guess my best advice that before you move here, understand that high end jobs are few, but not unachievable. Put just alittle more money away before the move so you don't have to take anything in desperation. I'm glad we made the move and I can't wait for the fun summertimes to begin!
