    Adjustments

    I have officially relocated to Northwestern Colorado from Northwestern Alaska. Some of the items that I am adjusting to....

    Darkness during the evening hours
    Ants (they don't exist in the Arctic)
    Antelope, deer, and elk are everywhere around my residence
    instead of reindeer, caribou, musk ox, moose, and brown bears
    Snakes (they don't exist in the Arctic)
    A road system
    Cars (Only four wheel drive SUVs and pickups were practical in NW
    Alaska
    Retail stores for shopping

    That'd be culture shock for me.

    Re: Adjustments

    There is one thing I've discovered in life, if I've discovered anything at all: Everyplace I've ever lived has been "just fine".

    I'm just at home living in a mud hut, as I am living in a palace.

    Hope you find something to engage you that will take away a little of the pain of leaving a place you so obviously loved.

    With me, that place is Iowa.

    From the title of this thread, I thought we were going to be talking about soemthing else, like when you're wearing tight pants and gotta move stuff around.
