Well, I was born and raised in Chicago. I love this city, it really has it's charm, but I feel like it's time for me to go. The gun laws suck, high crime, high taxes and its freezing half the year. Everything from the red light cameras to mobs of parking violation "officers" handing out $60 tickets like its candy really make me question my freedoms. Might sounds cheesy, but I imagine waking up to beautiful plains or mountains with temperate weather. A state where I can have fun with my guns and cars without having to worry so much about "the law." Im a friendly, easy going guy who minds his own business and would like to live by like minded people, although a large city nearby would not hurt. I am 25 years old and plan on saving my money to take off sometime in the next year or two. I will be taking road trip next summer to check some places out west. Colorado sounds like a good place to start. Any advice would be great, thanks fellas.
