  • you know you're from Colorado when...

    People move onto the highway at 15 miles an hour.

    You have absolutely no recognizable accent.

    If the humidity gets above 25%, you consider it "muggy".

    You only go to Central City when friends are in from out of town.

    You have been skiing less than 10 times in your life

    You think 5-points is a ghetto.

    You are the third car to run a red light after it has changed.

    You say things like "I don't care how big Golden is, it's still a one-horse town".

    You think only stupid people get lost in your town.

    When giving directions, you never say "Turn left, turn right", it's always go West, then South.

    During a thunderstorm you wonder "which I-25 underpass is flooding".

    You never plan a picnic between 3:30 and 6:00 in Spring or Summer months.

    You see no reason to travel to Aurora.

    You think "South Park" is a place to stop for gas on your way to Buena Vista.

    You think a pass does not involve a football or a woman.

    You can run up 10 flights of stairs without huffing and puffing.

    You've stood on solid ground and looked down on an airplane in flight.

    You know what the "Peoples Republic of Boulder" means.


    and lastly you go to this thread and say you're interested in the Colorado (and Western region) micechatter meet! Sorry, I'm just trying to get the word out to everyone


    on and fyi, please don't anyone get on our case about "why do you NEED a meet?!" because no, we don't...we just really really want one

    Too true, too true!!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

      I've never been skiing and with the Kentucky and St. Louis parentage and having vocals that flutters inbetween those, Ohio, and british, does that mean I'm from Colorado?

        Something to add to the list:

        When you travel to other states you pack shorts - no matter what time of year.
        Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
        I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.



        May the Gumballs Be with You...Always.

        NO GOATS!

            Other things to add?

            You wear sandals year round.

            You have a 5000 dollar mountain bike on a 400 dollar car.

            Can't think of anything else.

            Great list, Quas. I have to travel to Aurora once a month because of my 'rents living there, dangnabit.

            Peace,
            Roo

                    Thunderstorms. Massive, torrential thunderstorms.

                      You got. And they show up out of nowhere. You'll be working on your car in the driveway, go under the hood and back out and *poof* you'll emerge with dark clouds and lightening out of the blue.

                      Speaking of weather, here it is, over 60 to 70 degrees daily for the past week here and then yesterday, zap, below freezing. Still wore my shorts, tho, like the list says.

                      Such is life in the mountains!

                          It rains sometimes with no clouds in the sky. that's aesome. It happens rarely here (and usually it's just pat clouds) but it alwaysmakes me smile and remember CO.
