Quick update:

I'm no longer a resident of NY. I took a medical retirement from the fire department and bought a house in SE Colorado. Been down here since September 30th, closed on October 16th, moved in October 19th.

Huge congrats Rach!!! Knew it had to be getting close if not already done...

So tell us about it... House in a neighborhood? Piece of land out a ways?

Details man! ;)

I'm down in North La Junta about an hour away from Lamar. Found a 2,400 sq ft, 7 bed, 2 bath ranch on an acre of land with two 1,000 sq ft garages. Paid $68k for it. Completely outside of city limits, but only a mile outside of town. Stopped by the local fire department down here for a tour because I miss being able to wander around a station at will and got to talking to a couple of the guys and next thing I know the Captain is shoving an application in my hand and telling me I better bring it back ASAP because they have an Engineer's position open.

I've got a few things to do around the house like gutting and remodeling the basement so my kids have their own space to go do their thing. I'm also going to update the electrical in the garages so I can set one up to be my shop, and use the other to park the toys out of the weather. The yard is split 50/25/25 so I've got .5 acres un-fenced for the kids to play in, 1/4 acre fenced for the dogs to run, and the other 1/4 is taken up by the garages, but I've got a 95ft x 25ft slice of land between my fenced area and the field out back for solar panels. I've got perpetual water rights on the property and an unregistered well in the basement. The ground water sucks, but there is a filtration and softening system already installed so once I go over those I can have "free" water with the turn of a valve. Once we get settled I might look in to buying the 6 acre plot behind my house.

My neighbors across the street are the retired police chief of La Junta, who was on the job when I was down here before, and his son is a Deputy Sheriff. He decided the best way to say hello and introduce himself was to pull me over for a busted license plate lamp. At least he didn't give me a ticket, right?

My 26ft trailer snapped the frame in Indiana on the way down here so I left it at a friend's house. I had to borrow a 12ft trailer from another friend in Denver and made the first trip back to Indiana to grab a load. Leaving this week to head back to Indiana and get the last of it and fix the broken trailer enough to get it back to NY so I can get my truck and come back to CO and be completely done with NY.

You'll like living in Colorado a lot better than NY. Are you sure you want to go back to work?

I think if I got a chance at retirement I'd do my best to enjoy it.

A-hole is in Utah. Give me a bit to get the basement done and the guest room set up and Chateau D'Rachgier will be available.

Yeah, I know. The wife says the same thing. I'm only 36 though and it was a forced retirement. They are willing to send me to school for the nursing program and I can run part-time as a flight nurse out of the regional a few miles from the house, and run paid-to-call with the ambulance. I'm hesitant to commit to full time employment though. I had another disc, just above the old injury, blow out 2 months ago; and I've been putting off the surgery to fix it because of this move. I'm not sure how well, if at all, my body can tolerate running hard like it used to. I have this bad habit of ignoring warning signs and pushing through pain.

Congrats on the move to the west. I hear tell that New Yawk is a great and beautiful state as long as the cities are not in view. It's the politics, like californication that makes it pitiful living. Unfortunately, like the others have alluded to, CO is on it's way to joining the ranks of extreme liberalism. Still, the scenery may make it bearable.

You need to be taking care of the only back you will ever love. It only gets worse with age. But on the other hand, you are only young for so long and missing the 'doing' cannot be undone either. It's a Catch 22. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.
