Where do people work that live in Loveland? Are there those that drive from Loveland down to Denver for the high salaries?

Another thing, the crime here WAY outdoes the crime in the Loveland and that area.

So, Loveland can get the wind like Cheyenne gets?

Can present short times of gusty winds but not even close to the duration, intensity, or velocities of the area north of the Cheyenne ridge ... Cheyenne.

For those that leave Loveland, where do they move to? One place they almost 100% DON'T move to is Florida, that we have seen or heard of.

We are planning to leave this summer, not because there is anything really wrong with Loveland, but because we want a more rural lifestyle. We bought a place in Custer County and plan to move down there full time to live a simpler life.

I'm sure people leave, as they leave everyplace for various reasons, but there is certainly a huge net influx overall.

Actually... I know quite a few Colorado retirees who move to FL, but most stay closer (AZ and NM) if they have / like the grandkids.

It's good to move around as you so desire once you are free of the family and job commitments.

For many of us (non- insured for HC) Colorado is certainly not an option (rural HC costs / availability, RURAL Co is very very high). But generally the USA is no longer an option since the A(?)CA removed all the 'affordable' HC options. My 'retiree' HC options were at $3.50 / day (Pre A(?)CA are now $44/ day (Insurance only, not including the actual CARE). sorry... too much $$ = uninsured... & join the 15 million traveling for HC https://patientsbeyondborders.com/me...atistics-facts

I prefer FL over CO. Some might not like to hear that, but it's the truth. People have different preferences, and there is no right or wrong location.

I don't think people like or dislike where one prefers. I'd prefer more and more choose Florida over Colorado and leave it to us!

For some, there is definitely a "right or wrong location". Right now, some of our Facebook friends simply can't understand why we would want to leave Florida and move back to Colorado winters. Of course, they don't have the interests, as in lake boating/fishing, seeing Bull Elk in RMNP and going to rodeo's that we do. As already stated, "We don't make good Floridians or Southerners. We are definitely more of the Western states kind of couple, like Colorado, Wyoming and the such.

Have hotel room reserved. Last night, got airline tickets for Frontier Airlines and a Car Rental. On Facebook today, the city of Cheyenne was advertising about CFD (Cheyenne Frontier Days), of which we will be going one or two days.

One other thing, whether the move is to Loveland, Cheyenne or somewhere else, the walls in our apartment are getting very bare. We are packing up pictures and other things. The move won't be until May of next year, but we are too old to do the "wait until the last minute" thing.
