OMG OMG OMG! I just got an official job offer in Denver. I’m leaving Chicago! WOOOHOOOOOOOOOOO! Relo included, of course. I have so much to do in the next month, but I’m psyched. I haven’t spent much time out there, but enough to know I like the energy. People from Denver, Colorado, and western Mountain regions in general, please tell me things I need to know about living there, from the totally mundane, to “things I should really know about the people and culture that I wish people told me/I wish I could tell people.”

I know Denver has had a ton of growth, housing prices have gone up and there’s been some grumblings about the population surge. I want to be super-respectful, adaptable and most of all, enjoy the fresh air and not feeling like I could get mugged as soon as the sun sets.

In return, I offer a flock of curious llamas to the hivemind.
