Don't forget to water your 3 acres of Kentucky bluegrass and drive your SUV 60 miles to work every day just for good measure.

Good idea... I need to move up in the world!!! Also, I want all the meadows paved and I want to pump all the water out of every river within 600 miles in order to power my server farm 24/7. Oh, and we need to cut all those trees down across the way because they're blocking my view of the lake. And while we're at it, let's elect a former action star into gubenetorial office: I suggest Wesley Snipes.

(just trying to fulfill some stereotypes here)

Actually, the title of the thread was:
"From California To Colorado. Why???"
So stating our reasons for moving here is very much on topic. However, since naming names is a no-no on here, let me rephrase my answer:

I moved from all the way out here from CA for one reason and one reason only:

To bug the crap out of people who incessantly badmouth Californians and other out-of-state transplants due to their own ignorance and narrow-minded opinions!!!

Californians are flooding many states. It's not new, not unique to CO, and has been going on for years.

It's probably payback for all the high school and college graduates who fled the midwest and mountain states for CA

You forgot to mention placing a barrel to catch the rainwater flowing off your roof, and voting for the most liberal candidate running for office ( perhaps Sean Penn or Michael Moore. too bad Bono isn't a US citizen ), so that Colorado laws will be more amenable for a new influx of trustafarians & ski bums, with a major increase in the development of multi-million dollar homes, more interstate highways, with more emphasis on tourism, construction, and real estate development as the major industries of Colorado. We should also pass legislation to designate the Hummer as the official state vehichle. Ho Ho Ho

I liked your suggestion of 'dismantling the good-ole boy network'. Where'd it go? How else could so few help so many?
