Moving to Boulder in a few weeks

Hey all,

I'm moving from Chicago to Boulder in the next few weeks. I'm really excited about this change since my Tacoma hasn't been off-road much since the TTORA jamboree in PA in 2005 right after I bought it. I loved wheelin from the first time I did it but life and work got in the way of me doing it much and then I moved to Chicago. Now that I'm going to be out in CO I'm looking forward to maybe getting out there and having some fun or just chillin with some cool people. I don't know too many people in the area, just a few old friends from growing up. My job has my traveling constantly so I'm gone a lot but whenever I'm home I have nothing to do. Can't wait to be out there and I look forward to wheelin with y'all in the future.

Hey, another gold-ish Tacoma! What are the odds? I swear Toyota had a surplus of that color and just hosed the crap outta the Tacos...

Pre-welcome to Colorado; the sign at the eastern border is inaccurate... that is NOT "colorful Colorado". It's an extension of Kansas; flat, boring and crappy. Once you hit the mountains is where Colorado really begins.

Welcome at any rate, let's go wheel.


and I have the stickers to prove it

DH, I'll definitely hit you up for snowboarding! I'm not really moving out with much of anything and it has already crossed my mind what I should do first: buy furniture or go snowboarding. Right snowboarding is the definite front runner. My new place is in North Boulder but I was looking around the Table Mesa area. The reason I travel so much is because I work in Remote Sports Broadcasting, so I have to travel to all the events.

Wakk, my Tacoma is actually silver. It had a couple of weeks worths of California desert dirt on it when those pics were taken.

I'm hoping to be moved out there by the 12th. So hopefully I'll be seeing y'all soon.

Finally made it out here and actually around for a few days. Looking to go snowboarding this week. Where would you guys recommend? I'll probably be going midweek. Do the places around here offer midweek deals? Also, if anyone wants to join me let me know. I'm pretty open for my schedule so any day this week works for me.

I've heard that now a few times... About people not liking Boulder. I'm curious as to why that is. I'm pretty uninformed about most of Colorado, in general, and fairly arbitrarily chose to move to Boulder. What do people not like about Boulder? Can any add some insight?

I think it's mostly it's because of the hippies and the ultra lib's looking down their nose at anybody not following the latest "save the earth and society" trends.
All in all, I don't think it's a bad place to hang out, but I haven't lived there.


I'm outside your window watching you read this.
