    I live in FoCo and itís an amazing place. Boulder is just too expensive and crazy but a fun place to go for a day.

    Boulder has awesome access to mountains and trails but would steer clear from living there unless you have $1M for a house. That is the average home price now.

    Longmont is also a good place depending where you want to live. I would consider Lafayette or Louisville over Longmont if you want to be in that area.

    Only drawback to FoCo is that it is starting to become a mini boulder but itís not that bad when you have 21 breweries in town!

    Boulder definitely is fun to VISIT, not live (anymore). Did you end up getting a JT?

    No.

    However seeing the Legend is changing my mind. I really want one but trying to be smart right now about toys. We recently moved to some land and have a few other priorities.

    Being a grown up sucks!

    Wow, hard to believe that is in Colorado.

    When I grew up in Northwest Colorado, the prairie dog was considered a pest. With a small game hunting license the season on them was year round, with no limit, and it seems like they were the only animal you were not expected to retrieve after the kill.

    Ranchers would pay a bounty to kill them on their land, but it was only a dime.

    My friends and I would bow hunt them in town, and out of town they were target practice for our big game rifles. We would get them from around 500 yards.

    I just can not wrap my mind around "saving" one of the little pests. That makes as much sense to me as not swatting flies and mosquitoes to save them.

    I seem to recall an instance a few years ago where city of Denver contracted a company to gas a whole field of them. They were starting to spread a little too much.. plus that whole plague thing. Cheery Creek State Park if I recall.

    Glad to hear that. I was worried the whole state had lost it mind.
    Maybe it's just a Boulder thing

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
