So im gettin ready to pack some bags and movin out to Boulder next year from Chicago. Just wanted to pop in and say hi and get to know a few names before i head out there. cant wait for the wheelin.... will be a little better than what IL/IN has to offer eh? Well, just sayin hey! so who all lives near Boulder and how often do you wheel?
 
welcome in advance...
student?

there is a really popular, decent trail just outside of boulder called "carnage left hand canyon",
though thanks in part to the rednecks shooting it all up and leaving thousands of shells/casings
littered on the ground every week, who knows if it will remain open by the time you get here.
:lecture: (sorry, off soap box now)

anyway, another site you should check is www.colorado4x4.org as they tend to plan way more
trips since they're not jeep exclusive. i'd guess most CO people here (NAXJA) frequent both sites...

you should try to come out in august for ColoradoFest and get a taste of things to come!
;)
 
ive walked left hand canyon before when i was in looking for housing. trail looks fun, didnt get to far by foot but i can see what u mean bout the rednecks, in fact there were people shooting there when i was there.

already a member of colorado4x4 ;) ive been doin my research. when in august is colorado fest? ill be moving in august 7-8. cant wait, i think i read somewheres else that you work at CU? correct?

cant wait!

and yes, student.

Welcome to the communist republic of Boulder..

9 Miles surrounded by reality

Please check your firearms at the county border and pick up your free hand outs of pachouli oil, Elmers glue for your dreads, and complimentary BONG.

please return your tray tables to the upright position and prepare to be up to your ears in hippie.
 
i know its a very liberal town. just checkin to see if they had any specific firearms laws. kinda hijacking my own thread here and dont wanna get too offtopic but if im from IL (not a resident of CO yet) and do not have a IL Firearms ID (you need one here), can i still buy firearms in CO?
 
Mayor of Boulder...:D

We (the rest of the state) keep hoping the People's Republic will secede...or at least build a big-azz wall around the commune...errr...city. At least then we could fill it up with water and after a few decades when the pachouli gets cleaned out we'd have a lake to rival Lake Mead...

With that said, I just dropped off a pair of job apps at CU-Boulder today. Scheiße.
 
I work in Boulder, but I try not to go west of 30th. It's scarry over there! :scared:
 
quivvy don't let 'em scare you away...

they've bought into the myth created long ago to keep the right-wingers out. ;)

it's a liberal town in a red state-- so of course you'll hear smack talk. but it is gorgeous and a
great setting for anyone who loves the outdoors (especially if you have interests in protecting
the outdoors so your kids can enjoy them someday).

my biggest complaint: parking/traffic sucks these days, but hey it's a college town.

so again, welcome...

lol....

no firearms in boulder? or were u just being sarcastic?

Just Jokin boss..

Trust me it's all good, you'll see once you get here..

Boulder is a beautful city and the surrounding country side is amazing. I'm actually one of the liberals politically, I'm just making cracks because it's funny..

Most liberal folks in Boulder believe that protecting the outdoors means protecting them from all human activity. Including your kids. :wave:


hey now, we don't like it when "they" stereotype "us", so let's not generalize too much...

boulder created the idea of "open space" in colorado and limits growth so that there *are*
places for people to enjoy nature. they take public input seriously and of course you're going
to have people on all sides of the issue, but i think they do a decent job (in general) of
striking a balance.

these are difficult decisions that i don't claim to know much about... i'm more of a moderate
in that i don't necessarily support the wilderness act, yet i don't think the decision made this
week to open up all those acres to road building and logging is a smart idea either. :dunno:

whatever the outcome i do hope my children and their children will be able to enjoy colorado
as much as i have (and intend to).

:cheers:
