A new home: Fort Collins, CO

I married J in 2003. Since then, we have lived in:  Tuscaloosa, Alabama; Sacramento, California; Trentino-Alto Adige, Italia; and San Jose, California. Taking into account changes in living situation (from rentals to owned homes or better rentals, etc.), Jeremy and I have moved, in total, seven times.

Our eighth (Fort-Collins-New-Belgium-On-Street-Bike-Racksand potentially final) move occurred two weeks ago when we landed, at last, in Fort Collins, Colorado. Since our arrival, I have frequently been told by the locals that Fort Collins has:

  • more breweries per capita than anywhere else in the U.S./world.
  • more restaurants per capita than anywhere else in the U.S. (after Manhattan).

Perhaps for these very reasons, Fort Collins is also considered (by its residents):

  • the best place in the U.S. to raise a family, and/or
  • the best place in the U.S. to be a bicycle.

Welcome to Fort Collins! We’re thrilled to be here.

PS: As you may suspect, my intention is to revamp and restart this blog. Like you and me, it’s a work in progress. Hang in there.
