That there is some truth!

my driveway runs all the way down the south side of my house. my computer room, kitchen and living room are also on the south side of my house. guess i get the best of both worlds.

i do still have to chip ice a few times a year...it builds up where all the vehicles block the sunlight. oh, wait, that's the entire driveway

Carson, you better get your self registered for Cruise Moab so you can get to meet all your future fellow club members

What time frame you looking at moving?

I'd love to make Moab...maybe when I live closer!

We would wait for my oldest son to finish school this semester (1st grade) and move around late May or early June.

Found some cool houses on realtor.com in Genesee and Evergreen. I have always liked that area. How are the schools up that way? Anyone know?

Carson, come on up man! We need to have a dedicated trailer run when you do. Can't help you with all the details, I live closer to Boulder in the #3 Rated small town in America (Money Magazine)... Louisville (pronounced lewis-ville).

FWIW, we have an amazing per captia of cruisers on the northside, and we have a cool breakfast club that our southside friends get jealous of

Hope your move goes smoothly!

Funny, I live in Genesee and chose this area because of the location and the schools. We love the school that Shelby is in. Call me the next time you come up and I'll show you around. Its definitely a buyers market around here.

Beautiful areas for sure. Don't know about the schools but sounds like Gary does. Again, the downside would be the commute. From Genesee to say the DTC area is probably a good 30-45 mins in good weather and decent traffic. Double to triple that with bad weather/traffic. Evergreen (depending on where in Evergreen) is probably another 15-30 mins additional.

Some people don't mind a long commute. Personally I hate a long commute and traffic so that is my bias . I use to commute from the South side of Denver to the North Side daily and the commute on a perfect day was ~35 minutes. Perfect days were rare so my typical commute was more like an hour each way. That turns a typical 8 hour work day into a 10 hour work day . I found myself staying later at work just to avoid rush hour traffic. Suddenly my 8 hour work day became an 11 hour work day, trading more time at work for less time on the road, and in traffic.

In the end, if your job requires you to travel all over the metro area on a regular basis then non of this may really matter

That is great to hear that about the schools, Gary. It is also good to hear that it is a buyer's market, since real estate is much more expensive in Colorado. Let's try to hook up some time in the next month or 6 weeks; that would be great.

The commute is not too big of an issue; I recently finished a project at Denver West and I70. I can see where weather could present a problem though.
