    After signing a lease for a funky little place in Longmont, I have closed the book on 18 fulfilling, frustrating, and irreplaceable years living in Wyoming.

    I'm looking forward to more riding, less wind, more live music, less crappy beer.

    It's good to be here. Hopefully, I'll get to meet more of you all.

    Oh, and yeah, I haven't yet changed my location: 18 years is a lot of history to obliterate with a mere keystroke.

    Welcome back to CO and Longmont. I lived here for almost 20 years. Let me know if you need anything or want to go hit some dirt.

    Thanks much!

    I do indeed want to hit the trails when I get situated-- that's part of the reason I moved here: I got sick of ALWAYS riding alone.

    You know Colorado requires you to pay state income tax?

    They did when I left.

    That's fine. You take the good with the bad.

    I stand humbled by your obvious intellectual superiority and the generosity with which you grace us with your insights.

    No Goldwing here, but fork seals for a Benelli Tornado would be great. :D

    Colorado also has infrastructure, paid for by that income tax. As another recent transplant from Wyoming to Colorado, I'm happy to pay the tax, and enjoy the infrastructure. It's worth every penny.

    My dream when I finish a somewhat longer stint of the same kind of years in Alabama. Congrats to you! (And I'm already used to paying state income tax.)

    MW - I never dreamed I'd want to move back here, but I guess I wasn't finished there yet. We'll leave the light on for ya.

    lkr - Thank you. I appreciate that.

    It's richer than I like-- too much fork oil.

    Thank you.

    I really don't know what that guy's problem is with my choosing to move back to CO-- it's the second thread of mine he has stained with his crap.

    Somebody else's project, I guess.

    Thanks, man-- we'll see how it works out.

    I spent 3 months in Beaumont/Liberty in '05, and seeing mountains for the first time afterwards was a religious experience.
