    Just got back from a trip to Denver with the wife. Long story short a move to the front range does not seem as likely - my wife has reservations about the area.

    However we spent some time in Boise and loved it. We shall see where this ends up.

    You've got me curious. Can you expand on that?

    Thank you for posting a follow up, would love to hear where you end up. I have never been to Boise but I have heard it’s a really cool place.
    Best of luck!

    If snocapped mountains, a beautiful sunset at Coors field and a street party equaled wife's reservations, you are right, it's not for her.

    Late to the thread but fun to see how many neighbors I have on here.

    If it even matters, Golden has your walkable downtown and close to light rail, Applewood has the big yards and great neighborhoods, Arvada has never seen a vacant lot they don't want to build multi family housing on or vast big new developments on radioactive soil on the west side of town.

    Stopped by Boise on an 8 day ride around CO/WY/ID/MT this summer and was blown away riding up the spine of Idaho through three national parks.

    I'd guess too many people now and crazy house prices is the concern.

    Me too, but who knows.....too sunny? afraid of the devil's weed? too liberal? too many bums? afraid she'll never see her husband again because he'll be out riding too often?
