I was always interested in Colorado, so is my dad, but then I started to worry that they would all be super conservative but I have quickly learned it depends on the city. Denver is pretty liberal so if you want some of that legalized marijuana that is where you go to get it. I am staying in Colorado Springs where I guess they are a tad more conservative; you won't find a marijuana shop here. Either way, they are so relaxed about things compared to California.
You can ride motorcycles and quads in most dirt areas and they don't really care, in fact, I guess they don't really mind you crossing the road to get to another spot, something you can't do in SoCal without you needing to be willing to try to outrun the police. Almost no one locks their doors to their houses or their cars (except us Californians who just can't get over that natural urge to “lock up”) and I am at Barns and Noble right now writing this entry; I just went to the restroom on the other side of the store while leaving my laptop, bag, and jacket at the table. I came back and it's still there! I would never do that in SoCal because there is a really good chance I would get back to an empty table haha. Auto laws are really relaxed, auto tickets are super cheap, and our “Californian Defensive driving” is considered offensive driving here. It's all so funny to me, I like it!
