This stuff is great. Since it is a solid lotion bar it is a little awkward to put on but makes you feel like your sleeping in an envelope of moisture. You can get it much cheaper here at the Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage shop.
Amazon.com : Moon Valley Organics - Moon Melt Lotion Bar - 1.9 oz. : Body Lotions : Beauty

Also a humidifier like this one. Easy to fill. No heavy tanks to lug around. Large capacity. Local hardware stores have it.
Amazon.com - Essick Air EP9 500 Whole House Evaporative Digital Pedestal Humidifier, Nutmeg -

For chap stick since you will use it alot you want something as natural as possible. Example:
Booda Organics ? Pure, Vegan Bliss for your Lips!
INGREDIENTS: Organic Coconut Oil,
Organic Sweet Almond Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Olive Oil, Candelilla Wax
Also at Natural Grocers.

Thanks! Glad to hear there's someone else who made it. Appreciate the advice about hawaiian food - but I'm damn happy to be getting away from plate lunches. Gonna miss those musubi from 7-11 tho!

After a few years in Colorado you may wonder how you ever lived in a humid climate.

My hands occasionally crack in the winter and I use Working Hands Cream to take care of them.

I love the low humidity because it means NO BUGS!
That said, when I moved here from greater Boston, I found that I blew bloody snot out my nose every morning in the shower for almost 2 years.
YMMV.

After eight years here, I honestly don't have a problem with the lack of humidity. I use hand cream if I have my hands in and out of water frequently during the day, and I stay well hydrated. That's about it. I do notice that my hair is better when I go back east. It's pretty straight out here, but a little bit wavy in more humid environments.

I love that my hair looks so much better here. Went home to Houston for a visit in Oct, and my hair was so horrid looking, I wondered why I had even bothered bathing and washing it.

Of course, I realize the guys reading this are like "Who cares?"

Probably. I have the opposite experience. Must have something to do with the texture.

Aside from some dryness on the back of my hands I barely notice the humidity anymore. I just use some Cetaphil lotion on them at night and they're fine. I think it took me about a month to adjust to the humidity but then I felt fine. Honestly the altitude is going to be more of an adjustment for you than the dryness. Sea level to 5000+ feet is a big jump (literally)!
