I think its common knowledge that there are a few folks from CO on here.  The author for one:) and Brave New Life.  Anyone else out there from CO

I've heard from quite a few of us in emails, although it's a good question, how many of us are in the forum (less than 1% of regular visitors are signed up as forum posters). In fact, I have the privilege of going to lunch with a Longmont-based Mustachian only one hour from now!

Plus I had a meeting with another one last night about the new business he is starting.

Just like I said in today's article, the movement is everywhere :-)

I'm a former Coloradoan who moved away 5 years ago, but will be moving back later this year. I think all the cool (and often free) outdoorsy stuff, reasonable cost of living and typically well educated population combine to make Colorado a good breeding ground for Mustachians. Plus, the ever present sunshine is bound to put people in a great mood, and people are more likely to make better decisions when they're thinking big, positive thoughts :)

We're moving from South Jersey to Colorado in 6 weeks. :) I love hearing the particulars about CO life from MMM and in the comments of the blog. It assures me that the life I'm used to here is also doable there.  ;)

Fort Collins for me! If it wasn't so far, I'd say we should get together for a beer; maybe someday.  Mass mustachian camping trip?

Louisville. Would definitely be interested in an occasional in-person meetup and Q&A session. Will also trade computer & web site help/expertise for handyman/home improvement help.

I'm pretty new to the area and don't have a car, so I don't get around too often. I know I'm only about 5-10 minutes from Cherry Creek Mall. I know I'm pretty close to the intersection of I-25 and 225.

dave1 and BoulderTC, I like to hit the front range for early morning, pre-work day rides. Any chance you want to do one this Friday morning?

Onemore,

I could probably do something short and sweet like Green Mountain in the morning.  I could meet up Friday morning assuming it stops raining and has a chance to dry.  Were you thinking headlamp early or just predawn?

Longmont - SW side

How about the last Longmont Bike night of the season this Wednesday? Assuming it's a go in the flood aftermath. I hope everyone fared well.

I expect to be in Boulder the first week in November (11/4 - 11/7) and would like to meet fellow Mustachians. I don't know the area but I have a GPS so I could probably find an address. I'll be staying at the Millenium Harvest House (at my employer's expense), so the bar/restaurant there might be a reasonable place to get together. Let me know what you think.

Hi Y'all, I'm looking to move from Genesee / Golden area towards my new office off I25 & Colorado.

Just putting feelers out there, I'm looking for a place to rent come April/May. I need a house with a yard and a garage that's within a 10 mile radius of that intersection, though I much prefer to be North, South, or West. East is bad mkay?

I'm ok with living in the ghetto, but I need a yard for my 40 lb mixed breed doge and I need a garage for my race car. I'm a 32 male with impeccable rental history and references for the past 7 years (before that I was at my parents and my mom will talk your ear off so best not to call them).

If you have any leads please let me know! I'm willing to stretch outside the 10 mile radius if it's to the west.
