I love Colorado. I can't see myself ever moving back to the east coast or anywhere else for that matter.

That brew shop he has is pretty nice. I have been there once when I was in Fort Collins for business. It will be cool to have the pub right across the street. Taste a beer you like. Go across the street and buy the ingredients to make it. Sounds like a pretty good business model. I hope it works out.

I am originally from PA. I live near vail now. It is too much fun. Laid back, close to cities and great craft beer. What else could you ask for?

I'm a second generation native. Family was one of the founders of Durango.

I just went to get my Pioneer plates with all the proof of 100 years of family living here, and was told 'anyone can get them now'. Oh well.

Love it here, wouldn't want to live anywhere else.

Yea, I never put to much stock in those pioneer plates. The weird thing about growing up in KS was nobody ever boasted that they were "local" or "native".....becuase who wants to brag about that in KS!!

Actually the people I know from KS, and the people I have met traveling to our offices there for work, they are a pretty KS proud group. IT is almost elitist in some ways...strange!!!
