Wife and I have been thinking of moving out of our metro PDX home for a while, looking outside the city for a home. Now, we have an opportunity to move to the Fort Collins / Longmont area. I'm inclined to move for career reasons, and the area appears to be a bit more self sufficient than some areas I've been too, but wondering if anyone here has experience with that area. It seems that the college areas may not be well suited, but there are many small farms / ranches out there, and likely a more self sufficient mentality. Does anyone here have inputs or experiences with Northern Colorado living?
