Re: Studying paganism (or another religion)


Texas is too dang hot!!!! Period! I do NOT do extreme heat well. Problem is..I don't do extreme cold well, either! And here I am looking at some extreme northern states!! LOL.
I love Colorado, though. When I was itty bitty, we lived in Englewood and Aurora...and after we moved to FL and AL, we went up every other summer..and sometimes at Christmas to visit my grandparents and my Mom's brothers and families who lived up there. I LOVE the Rockies, and, despite the cold, I think I'd love living up there again as an adult. Some of the potential places for transfer are Pueblo, Denver, Aurora, Glenwood Springs (oh hell yeah!...HOT SPRINGS.HERE I COME!!!) and a few others I'd never heard of before. I don't think I'd want to be in Denver proper...but Aurora or Englewood would be OK I think.

When we stayed in Glenwood springs last year to visit hubby's sister....NICE SOAK!! emoticon
I like Glenwood Springs...but not Denver, or Pueblo...to crazy with people.
I'd live in Estes park if not for the SUPER snow and tourists.... emoticon

Re: Studying paganism (or another religion)


Queeny, I'd not want to live in Denver and even though Aurora used to not be too bad, I've heard that it's getting that way. Denver has kind of crept in on Aurora. My Mom and Step-dad lived in Penrose for a while and really liked it there, but there's no job offerings for the company there.

When I was about 12-13 yrs old, we went to Glenwood Springs, to the hot springs pools...it was the middle of July. The pools felt SO good.....out of the blue a freak snow storm (and I do mean storm...thunder, lightning, the works) blew in and we all had to get out of the water. Of course, being at that altitude, it's not uncommon for it to snow in the middle of summer!!

There were some really neat looking towns in Oregon, too, that were listed with some potential for transfer. I think I could live in Oregon.....got the mountains and the ocean (I'm not a huge ocean person, but once in a while would be OK)

Oregon and Washington are way cool places to live. Just rains a lot.....
We loved Gig Harbor, Wa.

Re: Studying paganism (or another religion)


Lavender Wings was telling me earlier today that Oregon is a really nice state. She's in WA state, but knows enough about Oregon. I do know Oregon has one of the best economies in the US.....and fewer people per capita than most states that size.....would be one of my first picks I think....IF we should decide we wanna transfer, that is.

Re: Studying paganism (or another religion)


This is a picture I have of Gig Harbor, WA. We lived here when Hubby's naval ship was in Bremerton, WA

You don't want to live in Eastern Oregon, around BEND....it's as hot as hell there in the summer. Our RV broke down once there...104 degrees for a week! emoticon

The inland mountains are gorgeous and the coast is nice too.
But like I said.....it rains a lot in both places...so if you happen to be a solar power person like I am....it can get to you! emoticon

Re: Studying paganism (or another religion)


What a gorgeous place!!

Looking at the Atlas, Bend is almost in the center of the state. The area that we were looking in...and I wish I could remember the names of some of the towns/cities, was more toward the coast. I know a couple of the places were around Portland...I think Newberg was one of them, but not sure. Most of them seemed to be West of I-5 with a few just to the East of there....and predominately in the upper portion of the state...from about Eugene up. I can't get to the site...only employees can..so can't bring up the city names emoticon ....but, like I've said, it's not a serious thing at the moment...just fun to look at the possibility.

Queeny: I got relatives in Bend. emoticon

One day, I'll visit there, but it seems I'd better not plan on doing so in the high summer.

That harbor pic looks lovely. emoticon
