    You are 62? Why do you think your timing is relevant to someone who's mid-30s? It's not "results vary" it's "past performance is not indicative of future performance".

    A couple things. Assuming it is PhishShow, he gets props from me for being his real self on here over the years. He acts a little AKPM, and some of us fling him some shit. Been that way for decades now.

    Teachers, plumbers, waiters and retail managers are buying homes all over the intermountain west. Not in the most expensive zip codes, but it can be done.

    If you are in your 30s and are categorizing your life as "throwing in the towel", I think you have bigger questions than where to live. I'm certainly not the best person to take advice from as I don't always have the best attitude, but life is what you make of it. Easier said than don't, but you gotta figure out what makes you happy.

    Where? For serious. I'd like to know.

    Re: the OP-

    I've never met the dude, but it seems that he f'd around in college and focused on skiing on his parents dime. If I remember correctly, he was one of the only CU kids good enough at skiing to hang with the core TGR Colorado croud back in the day. Not sure if he graduated but eventually he went back to NJ and his parents bailed him out with a job managing their carwash.

    Lots of life experience later (GF left when she graduated nursing school, etc) and he made the existential choice to move back out west to find the happiness he left behind. This probably meant walking away from the family bankroll?? That's a big choice, and one that I'm sure wasn't made lightly.

    From the sounds of it, he's been trying to work different angles in the real estate world and doing other stuff to get by.

    Look dude, I don't know you but there is no reason for the alias. Lots of people on TGR know little bits about your story and it seems like you are well liked by people who know you in real life. Seems like the reputation from 10 years ago of being a kinda out of touch spoiled CU kid is long gone.

    A lot of us on here were naive CU kids who had been sheltered from real life experience. I'm sure some of the shit I talked about and posted on here when I was 20 is cringe worthy.

    Did you finish your degree? What's it in? Do you have a dream job? What is it? What parts of the work you've done do you enjoy the most?

    Good luck, OP.

    Really? Within my circle of friends and I don't have many...Granby, Fraser, Blue River Estates, Steamboat, Draper, Driggs, etc.

    Oh yeah...people in glass houses and all that regarding what you wrote about WRG.

    I moved halfway way around the world in my thirties... to where I wanted to live.

    I don't listen to the present 30 somethings about how they couldn't make it work away from their family jobs or lack of capital investment or over qualification for being an employee like the OP does.

    Listening to the crusty fucks who made it work might be his answer?

    Maybe asking the crusty fucks before he moved there and couldn't make it work might have helped?

Fast forward...4 years of college in 2 years by crushing myself. Then Med school, residency and now I can live wherever the fuck I want. I think it was worth the pain and expense but you need to take a hard look before signing up.

    OP, have you ever considered a move back to the EC? Specifically, Londonderry VT?
    One day all your talk about Londonderry is going to end up with a sea of Maggots descending upon Londonderry like abused and broken lemmings. And then what? Who will feed them their drugs?

    I'm sure dbdude would have been smart enough not to elude Seattle's finest by running around naked.
