Talk talk talk

So Heather and I are seriously talking about moving back to St. Louis. For some, this isn't a surprise and for those that I haven't talked to in a while, it may be. Strangely, for the first time, I actually discussed it and do not feel bummed about it in the least. Don't get me wrong...I LOVE Colorado and the things I can do here in my free time. I'm supposed to race in Moab in 2 weeks. I'm backpacking/fly fishing in Rocky Mountain National Park for 4 days in about 4 weeks. I'm going backpacking/fly fishing in remote places for 2 long weekends in October. I always have been and always will be fascinated by the mountains and all of their history. However, I really want to see my wife be able to pursue more of her career goals and it's just difficult to see that happening here in Colorado as the mental health profession is not high on the list here unless you wanna work in a prison. The other thing that's been eating me lately is that I'm tired of us not making any money. I have some fantastic connections back home and know I wouldn't have any trouble getting into a good school. I could also make about 10 grand more back home and that's decent cash when the cost of living is lower to boot. Right now we're thinking about St. Charles so we can live close to our friends Adam, Mary and their 2 girls. It feels good to be looking at it in a different way.

Ummmmm....I may just leave a tent and a cooler full of Schlitz down there somewhere and be a Hermit. Not sure how I'd fare around the crowds. I get uncomfortable if I have to go Colorado Springs.

winter = no crowds
