I have accepted a position in the 4 corners region and will be moving in the next month or two. Looking forward to meeting up and playing at higher elevations!

Thanks for the welcome. I am a Safety Professional and will be working for the largest natural gas producer in the area. I have been working in Alaska and commuting from Texas for the past 8 years so living near work will be nice.

My wife and I visited 2 weeks ago and soon after my visit and interview I was called with an offer, I am currently going through the prehire process while continuing my job in Prudhoe Bay Alaska. Durango is a beautiful area and we love the people there and all that the area has to offer. Wheeling, Fishing, Hiking, Skiing(I will learn) etc. What a playground!

I have been a very inactive texas member since about 2002 since my job seems to have me away on every event I have only met a couple of runs but have good working knowledge of working on our trucks. Currently I have a 2006 Tacoma and a 2008 jeep Jk.

I look forward to settling in and getting to wheel some new and interesting terrain.

I hear you on the home prices. WE plan to rent for 6months to a year and purchase before the 12 month IRS relocation period is over so that I can get a better idea before making a final housing decision. . I have a great relo program and I am saving a bundle on airfare by taking this position so the home prices are OK with me.

Oh you'll be itching to rebuild as soon as you see all the amazing within 3 hours of your location! Moab, Farmington, The Ouray Telluride and Montrose area! Seriously I can't think of a better place to live for wheeling!
