Thanks to all that helped me in my other thread - "Up and going to California, and tips?". I deleted it because my friend and I have made a decision with Colorado. Now, I've checked out Craigslist for apartments, and I see that Boulder is pretty decent (not necessarily cheap) - being 420 friendly. But it may be a little TOO expensive to live there, at least at first... I've checked out areas like West Colorado, and even this Puebla area, and I'm seeing 2 BR houses for 800 a month and even houses for about 1,000. Are these areas decent? And how would I get by with a card? I wouldn't mind moving to boulder, but I don't know if we could handle it. yet. Any ideas?? And finally, does anyone know how the job market is? +reps to those with good advice!
