You only live once and itís good to see you are embracing the opportunity that has been presented to you. I find myself quite envious. Colorado is a beautiful place to be. Enjoy.

Roy, that house looks fantastic and I'd love to live in the Rockies. I hope you're happy in your new home and area. Just remember, every morning when you look out of your window how lucky you are. despite mail problems...

Hi Gents,

Many thanks indeed. We have use of the big cabin but also have a smaller place next door. It is an incredible location. I may even try my hand at 'ice' fishing!

We are hitting it right at the start of the winter, so it will be a shock. Should be some interesting wildlife too, bears, mountain lions etc. My wife is already calling dibs on my .357 revolver..

Should have some cracking photos to share once settled.

Cheerio,

Roy

Hi Mark,

Not that I know of. Grand Junction will be our nearest big town, about an hour away, I will be sure to check.

Cheerio,

Roy

Its a whole new lifestyle - it will have many challenges but fantastic rewards. The scenery looks amazing. Enjoy it and create memories.

Thanks for all your kind words gents.

In the last throws of packing now and the moving truck is booked, picked it up on Sunday for a Monday move.

Still having problems sorting the internet out but fingers crossed.

Will be sad to leave northern New Mexico but a new adventure awaits...

Missing all my free time for projects, this packing lark is like a full time job

Cheerio,

Roy

Hi Gents,

I'm pleased to say we have arrived safely at our new mountain home (pic attached). We are on the western slope of the Rockies in Colorado 8,200 feet up next to a lake.

We just got internet hooked up. Having to go back to a landline telephone as really no cell signal way up here. No post either, so have to have a PO box in the tiny post office in the near by one street town.

Really looking forward to getting some recent button purchases delivered over the coming weeks.

Cheerio,

Roy
