relocating to santa fe
I'm originally from NY and two years ago moved to south west Florida, but since hurricane Irma I have been tossing around the idea of relocating to Santa Fe. Anyone from the area on the board? Can you tell me what the area is like? Are job prospects good? Sorry if this post is in the wrong section.

I'm from the Midwest and only been through Santa Fe a handful of times while on my way to my different search locations, but have really enjoyed the weather there. My wife has never been, but I think I've got her convinced to relocate.

RE: relocating to santa fe
I was born and raised in Santa Fe, and now live 60 miles away in Albuquerque. Santa Fe is a relatively small city whose primary industries are tourism and State Government. The weather is pleasant, with mild summers and winters. There is lots of wealth in Santa Fe, mostly due to retirees moving there. Because of State Government and Tourism, there is a strong middle class. Like the rest of most of New Mexico, it's a Progressive community. If you're coming from a conservative community, you'll experience a bit of culture shock. It has one of the largest art communities in the United States, with dozens of galleries to support them. There's an old saying, "Move to Santa Fe when you can afford to move to Santa Fe."

Thank you Mr Y
I have watched all of your vids and must say they are very well executed. My family and I are considering Albuquerque as well I don't want to pigeon hole myself into one place. We aren't conservative and are pretty open minded to other cultures and beliefs. Florida is just to new we love history and really miss that aspect where we are now. and the hurricane was a nightmare so we decided to toss the dart again and see where we might go next! I followed your twitter and look forward to more vids!

RE: relocating to santa fe
You're welcome. Thank you for watching our videos. We appreciate it.

Having lived in both New Mexico and Colorado (amongst many other places), if the reasons for moving West are the treasure and/or the outdoors, I would choose Colorado over New Mexico. Colorado offers a wider variety of outdoor options, and more surface area on which to take advantage of them. Also, if Fenn's treasure is on your "criteria list," Colorado is better placed to take advantage of solutions in Wyoming and Montana. And, Northern New Mexico is an easy drive from most of Colorado.

RE: relocating to santa fe
If we weren't tied to the land here in MO, I'd move SW. We'd traveled all over NM for years before hearing of the Chase, but it has led us into some new areas. Whether NM, AZ, CO or UT would depend on the tax situation, weather, cost of living and proximity to a military installation. Make your criteria & use them to decide.

P.S. - Probably should be in therapy room, maybe I'll move it tomorrow
