Some of you have seen and posted in my recent thread about my upcoming relocation across the country. To summarize it, my girlfriend and I will be selling most of our things and moving to a place we've never been in order to have an adventure. For those who are interested, here is the link: http://www.glocktalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1427088 Here is the current situation (because it seems that nobody is reading the other thread anymore): We've pretty much narrowed it down to two places: the Asheville/Hendersonville, NC area (I can easily avoid the liberal politics in the city of Asheville) and Colorado Springs, CO. I am currently applying to aviation-related jobs in both areas. There is one thing I am wondering about Colorado Springs, and I'm hoping someone here can help me out: how is the city and surrounding area structured? Where I'm from, there is a small, central downtown, a few universities nearby, and plenty of housing within a 10 minute walk of either. What is Colorado Springs like? It looked more like a small urban sprawl on the google map, but it was hard to tell. I'm just wondering how easy it is to get around and if there is really any center to the city. Anything anyone can tell me about the city and the surrounding area would be very helpful.
