In the unincorperated region between Golden, Arvada and Wheat Ridge. Some call in Fairmont.

There's me--except for the time I was out in California (worked at LLNL on the linac out there), I've lived in Colorado since I was seven.

I used to be out in the middle-o-nowhere, pretty much straight south of Lakewood, but a few years ago, somewhere (in the form of Highlands Ranch) started heading this way. So, now it's more like I'm on the edge-o-nowhere.

My aunt lives in Lakewood. If you ever need someone to make you a really ugly crochet afghan, I can give you her number.

My parents moved to the newly-incorporated Centennial when they retired. I have other relatives in Littleton and Golden, and college friends in Boulder. I get out to Colorado about once a year to see everyone.

Yeah. That was a great place to have some chili, watch the pretty girls go by and get caught up on homework.

I like the strange effects that headlights make on a foggy windsheild while heading up I-70 near Vail at 3 AM because your dad plans his trips so that he won't have to stop at a motel.

I visited CO. once up in the Loveland area, I have to say CO. was my favorite vacation spots so far, the best part of CO i'd have to argue are the mountains themselves. I think anyone who can wake up and look out and see rocks that meet the sky, are some of the luckyiest ppl in the world.

Loveland is a nice town. Sculpture capital of Colorado! Living on the front range is great because in 10-20 minutes you can be hiking in the mountains, smelling the pines. Finally saw a bear this year while hiking!

I worked at CU Boulder this summer and lived in a basement on The Hill. I liked the Flatirons and Chatauqua Park. A lot. I didn't get out of Boulder much though 'cuz three days after I arrived I totalled my car. Luckily, the city itself is very bicycle-friendly.
Definitly on my list for potential grad schools.
Great aikido training too.

Breckenridge and Keystone have very good ski instructors and nice mountains. I usually ski Copper Mountain, Loveland (less $) or Winter Park. There is actually a train from Denver to Winter Park. One in the morning and one in the evening going back.

Hmm... I live in Fort Collins, CO...

I've got an idea! We should arrange some kind of big geek get together :-) I'd drive down to Denver to meet some fellow geeks.. (i'd probably drive to Grand Junction for that, but don't tell anyone) If anyone else likes the idea send me an email at [email protected] We could even have a little Mac Lan or something w007.

If you can wait until the summer, say mid-August (but not GenCon weekend), ther is a good chance that you might even have a Swiss Mercenary over.

My contract break (minimum two weeks) falls in August, so I am seriously looking at visiting Canada and the US.
