I use to live there. Like 19 yrs worth. Moved back to the S,E U.S a few yrs back. Things aren't so great. How's the employment there ? Prob the same as when I left. I lived in Ellicott , Co ( 23 miles east of the springs & I loved it.. Rented a nice place for 3 yrs there but moved ( had to) uptown off north nevada near mount view area. It was ok for 2 wks but then I started to hate it.. I guess my Question is , Are there some decent places to Rent without having to rob a bank to afford it ( just joking abt that )?? I do think co is a beautiful state but I don't like it at the same time. Some of the ppl suck ! Not Friendly.

well to be honest with you, if you had a choice, i would stay towards the SE, maybe even texas (thats where i am now). I have moved to springs and back from springs about 5 times now and im not doing it again. there are no full time jobs, if you have a degree you might get in at Mcdonalds or mop a floor somewhere. i have a 3yr Human Resources degree and i couldnt find anything in my field and ended up working fast food or janitorial all 5 times ive been there. Housing is an absolute joke. Small,dirty, beat up run down apartments going for like 700/month small houses going for 2Grand/month. you might get lucky like i did and find a house in manitou for cheap, i got a small 2BR up in the hills in Manitou for $750 (still too much, i used to pay 450 for a house this size in Kansas). It was a nice place but unfortunately its usually a "reserved" type rental house where the leases are seasonal and often pre-paid in full. I had to move when June came, but not bad i had that house from late October untill then and the guy actually trippled my deposit for not wreking the place. But ya, it really is just a guessing game out here and more times than not, a numbers game as well.

thanks Don for the reply . I appreciate it.. I'm in Ky near Lexington if you've ever heard of that city. Spring will be coming up here pretty soon & I must say it is very pretty here when that season rolls around. The Thorough Bred race horse farms are sometime needing help , but , when u work around a horse or horses that are worth Two or three million dollars , they really watch who they employ ! Can't say I blame them tho. Its really something ! The colts are so damn cute & smart. I live in a 2 bed , 1 bath, small kitchen. Living RM for 460.00 a mo.. Its not too bad. I've seen worse & I've seen better. I pay for electric & the landlord pays water , trash etc. They are very strict here about pain killers if u are in a position to Whr u got to take them. Thanks to florida , they're ALL paranoid here. Over that fiasco. Sorry I went on. Thanks again. I guess ill stay here. I wonder if New Mexico would be any different ? I lived there in the late 70s for a while.

Sounds better than Hazleton, Pennsylvania. The steaming shit of the coal region.

I'm sorry I should have been more specific . My fiance has a breathing problem called " COPD " . He said the dryer air would be better in the Southwest states. I'm not sure if that's true . We have higher humidity here & the summers have gotten unbearable with the humidity. Temps of 95 . Too much ! The spring time is beautiful tho. It starts here by the 3rd wk of march ! Thanx.

I didn't & don't like colorado springs. I got a out
of state warrant on me becos I got late on my child support payment. I got laid off & I really tried. I sold ever thing I owed including my tools & that how I made my living ! It sucked ! I got extadited to virginia but sit in CJC for 4 mos b4 they ever came to get me . I was to the point that I prayed for death to strike me so I could forever be rid of that hell hole. There was no bond . When I got to Va, I still set there for 3 mos . Finally my relative payed the 2,ooo dollars. That ex of mine still owes me a thousand that never got pd. My experience there F*ck me up big time. Pretty state but most ppl suck !! Sorry. Just my opinion.
