We're considering moving from Mt. Airy Maryland to Colorado. We have visited three times in the last three years. We have seen a lot of the state so far, coming back again in September for another ten day visit.
I have a CDL with a HAZMAT Endorsement and work for a world wide paint company. My wife is a Cat Scan Supervisor, we are both in our mid 50's. We have friends in the Parker area, which we like. We're wondering about job prospects, cost of living etc., Evergreen is also another area we really like. Any input is appreciated.

If you're considering Parker, Evergreen or the greater Denver area then I need to move this to the Denver forum; let me know....

We've tons of threads in here on all those areas, use our search tool to find them.

I'm from the Baltimore-DC area and I know I-70 and Mt. Airy well. Cost of living here will be higher than your area, weather / climate will be nicer.

Jobs are here, look at craigslist to see them, or have her hit the hospital or healthcare websites, etc.

Lots of trucking here, Denver is the only big city for 500 miles in any direction; I-70 and I-25 are quite heavily traveled, and we have oil/gas fracking going strong north of Denver which needs lots of drivers.
