I'm about 45 minutes north of the Springs. Why?
LOL, I guess I didn’t explain myself very well. I’m just wondering if I want to live there for the rest of my life, but after thinking about it, I’m just not so sure anymore because of the snow.
It’s just that everyplace I’ve ever lived, there were bad neighborhoods and good ones. You can avoid the bad ones by paying the price and buy an expensive home, but I’m not a rich man and my retirement is going to be worse, so I’m looking for someplace cheap. I’ll have plenty of time to do fixer-ups but not enough money to tear down & rebuild.
I also need a little room so I can do stuff without bothering my neighbors and don’t want to live in a housing track. I personally would love it out in the boonies, but my wife on the other hand is a very social person who loves people and neighbors.
My son needs to work while he lives there and it would have to be close to town for work and school for his kids. As I get older I may also have to be close to town anyway for medical reasons, so I guess I’m looking for town living information. I would not want to end up on the wrong side of town. I’ve been there and done that. LOL
I admit that I wasn’t thinking about snow and that might be a problem. We got about an inch of snow here today and I don’t mind that too much, but I have to say the cold really bothered me this year more so than any other year.
Well anyway the more I think about the cold and snow, I may have to stick with desert living. There are so many places that I just love here close by and it’s just too bad that CA as gone so far downhill with the taxes and politics. There is just no way I can stay here.
