Coming to a Small Town Near You...ME!

Quick post. Lots on my mind but too much work to do to sit still long enough to post it all.  Just a quick note to say I've been invited to an interview for a job in Colorado.  It's in the Southeastern corner and a good 13 hour drive from my home here near Phoenix.

But if you've been reading my blog, you might remember that I've pondered moving to a small town where my family can raise animals and enjoy the environment of a small town atmosphere.  Well, it may be happening.  I had a phone interview a week ago and made it through to the final cut.

I'll be heading to Colorado at the end of this month for a face-to-face interview.  The person I interviewed with sounded terrifically warm and friendly.  The town has a population of just over 7,000.  If all the criteria are met: pay increase, upward movement on the hospital career ladder, tuition reimbursement, etc...the Orange Jeep Dad family could be packing up and heading for Smalltown, USA.

I will post more as soon as I can.  All our prepping and self sufficiency skill practice could be finally getting put to use soon that we know!



  1. If it's something you want, I hope it all works out for you, OJD. It's a beautiful part of the country!

    : )

  2. Might be a better place as far as bug-out/prepping issues are concerned. 7k people vs a horde of millions with no water and food.

  3. @HB I still have to figure it all out. Moving the entire family to another state is stressful for everyone involved. I am aware of that and will do my due diligence in researching it. Thanks for your encouragement.

    @Matt You comment is one of the (several) main reasons I like the idea of moving there. Water is my biggest issue here near well as the bagillion welfare recipients.

  4. Wow, good luck - hope it all works out for you and your family. Sounds like a dream coming true!

  5. Good luck to you and may you make the right decision for your family. Small towns and lots of wide open country are better than any crowded city.

  6. Yay!!!! Good luck!!

    Oh and I gave you an award on my blog!

  7. @ Kris Tanks! It is exciting, for sure.

    @DD I agree 100%

    @Lily Wow! Thanks! I'll have to check it soon as I get a little nap...(my bedtime) :-)
