Welcome Chris. Good to see another from MT here. This is a great group of Jeepers I know. And I'm sure you'll enjoy the trails we run. Looking forward to doing some wheeling with you. Where at in the Denver area are you moving to?

I'm in IT; working in Longmont, which would be a bit of a commute for you, but a lot of my co-workers are in Denver. What, specifically, are you looking for?

And welcome. I moved in from out-of-state (IA) 9 months ago, and am loving everything out here. I've done a lot of trails since I've been here; and like was previously stated, you'll have no problem finding people to wheel with.

I'm a lead DBA and Developer working with Oracle PL/SQL. We have several Database and Application Development positions here, but sadly, no Network or SA positions. This area seems to be prevalent with IT companies, so I'm sure you'll have no problem finding something.

Welcome to the area! I'm in Desktop Support/ Network admin and work for a school district not far from Commerce City. Unfortunately, we don't have any positions opening up right now, but like Jfeld said, there seems to be a wide variety of IT jobs in the area.

Welcome to CO, as others have said, lots of Jeeps here to wheel with. Every 3rd car is a Jeep it seems! Lol

I'm sure you will find an IT job up in Denver, but worst case you could look in the Springs. Lots of IT stuff down here with all the bases.

Been here only a few months... everyone I've met from this forum is super friendly. Just keep an eye out here, there's plenty of runs to join. Sadly I've missed out lately as I'm mid upgrade. Went on one run, got the "lift" but and been piecing it together since. Look forward to running with you.

So I have to ask.. Is the jeep wave a lost art in CO? I've thrown it 40+ times with 0 returns. :-(

some do and some don't....there are a lot of Jeeps so its a crap shoot. I have decided to wave at the Jeep and not at the driver. then it really doesn't matter if they wave back....
PS the built guys will usually wave if you look trail ready

You know I feel that way sometimes. But then I get a good wave and it makes it all better. Lol. I still wave at every jeep with like 10 percent waving back.

Welcome to Colorado and the forum. I'm your central Colorado connection. I live in Buena Vista. This is ground central for Jeeptober. I think we are all a bunch of great people on here. Plenty of wrenching parties happen because of this sitter.

One question though. I see you are originally from Montana. So how in 6 years did you pick up the "y'all"? Damn they must imprint you quick.
