klg_girl: Moving there soon
Hi, I am going to be moving to GJ in the coming months and I am trying to find out how friendly the city is etc. I am coming from South Carolina where I have been living for the past 11 years. I moved here from Boulder/Nederland so I am ok with any altitude and cold weather. I am in my mid 30's and while I am no spring chicken, I still like to get out and about at times.

Grand Junction takes some getting used to, but overall it's a nice place. I actually live in Palisade, just east of Grand Junction, and prefer the smaller, quieter life here. Ironic because I am originally from the San Francisco Bay Area and consider myself a city boy.
I, too, am in my mid-30s and like to get out fairly regularly. There's no shortage of places to go and hang out, regardless of your tastes and preferences.
I'd like to add you to my friend's list so we can keep in touch during your transition. As it gets nearer to your move, or after you've arrived, let me know and I'll send along a list of things to do and see.

Sure, go ahead and add me if you feel brave! Reading your lj a bit i see that you are a liberal of sorts which usually means that you have an open mind. Open minds are an important thing to be as I am a member of the GLBT community.

I figured as much from reading your userinfo. Doesn't affect me in the least one way or the other.

Well that is a good thing to know and is appreciated :) I read some of your info as well and beer is good! Here are a few more quotes for ya!
"Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy." ~Benjamin Franklin
"I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day." ~Frank Sinatra
"Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut." ~Ernest Hemingway
