the background helps explain the move but I still think that Skydog's advice is spot on. Denver is not, and never will be Philadelphia (I went to school there, so not just speaking in generalities). Come here with an open mind, prepared to enjoy what Denver and Colorado can offer, and there's plenty to like. And with the plan you have, Philly will still be there waiting for you when the time is right for that.

Thanks guys.


So the new plan is to rent a studio or something in the near-term and have me go out on a 3 weeks in Denver/1 week in Philly schedule and have the wife stay in Philly and come out 1 week to Denver. So we end up with a 1 week apart, 1 week together situation.


Not ideal but it gives her a chance to stay in Philly and keep her job (dog walking - she loves it) and we can work around the absences. It also gives her a chance to let Denver grow on her without having to make a sudden change without even seeing it.


She's still upset but I think it's less so.

Denver's a HUGE dog town. So if she is ok with relocating here once she gets used to it, she can definitely set up a new business here.

LOL! I moved from one soul killing suburb in Chester County, PA (Philly burb) to another soul killing suburb of Denver, Lone Tree. I actually liked it, and was more into the mountains than city living or being in downtown Denver. Hickenlooper (native of Narberth, PA) was Mayor then.


We lived in Lone Tree for several years than wanted something different so looked at other areas. I agree with others that Highlands section of Denver (not Highlands Ranch) sounds like a good fit for you. We liked it, but we also looked at properties in Evergreen, and Franktown, so you see where we were coming from.
