Im actually mostly basing it on license plates, maybe it's biased where I am or something though. See mostly Texas and California plates, maybe seen one Arizona plate since I've moved here.

This is a cool map, just hard to get data from

Well we are British but when my company started talking to me about relocating me to the States, I came over and visited Denver, TX and CA and chose Denver.

However the company wanted me to start in TX and so I have been here 9 months but now it really does make sense for them to move me to Denver. There is a saying in Texas which goes something like "I was not born in Texas but I got here as soon as I could" for me it could say "I am not in Denver but I'll get there just as soon as I can" ;-)

Seems like the company has seen sense and now negotiating the relocation to Denver early next year! When we arrive the car will have Texas tags but I assume we will need to get those changed over?

Default Long rifles

1. A .22 caliber rifle for critters. Squirrels and those Hanta virus carrying prairie dogs. But, you already own one of those as you are coming from Texas.
2. A serious large game rifle. For wolves, bears and mountain lions. Shoot now and dodge questions later. We also have Elk.

Be sure to lose any ability to make left hand turns. Do not go into the intersection to prepare to turn left when there is an opening. Instead, sit at the intersection entry and wait for a broad window to magically open. If the light changes red in the meantime, just dust off your bad fortune and wait for it to be green again. Repeat.

Excuses, excuses! Though I do agree that people will crowd you out, then change lanes themselves.

Yes, you'll need to go to a DMV office and get nice Colorado plates. You can wad up those fake looking, ugly tin foil Texas plates and toss them in the rubbish bin!
