Are you a Colorado native (doesn't apply for Josh)?

Postby tmathews » Sun Feb 13, 2011 1:17 pm

How many of us are a Colorado native (actually born here)? I moved here when I was two years and seven months old, so Colorado is the only place that I have a memory of. I'm not exactly a native, but I suppose I consider myself "naturalized".

Where are you from originally?

Florida I guess, it's where I grew up, but I've lived in Oklahoma, Hawaii, Georgia, North Carolina, Idaho, Oregon and Colorado.

My sister was born here in Fort Collins though, but my parents moved to OK just a few months before I was born so I just barely missed the "native" status.

I'll be here for a maximum of 5 years while I finish grad school, I'm kind of hoping for either Washington or Montana for the next state :)

First 18 years in Minnesota. Then Texas, Alaska, and FINALLY Colorado. I believe I am here to stay.

Not a native. Definitely an Invader. Our purpose. To make this world our own.

Not me. But this is my home now.

Vermont for the first 24yrs.
The rest here in the Springs area (since 'May 97).

I hope Josh doesn't get butt-hurt for being excluded from your post Terry. ;)

Fourth generation Denver native. It's amazing how much the front range has grown in just my lifetime.

No. Southern Indiana originally. But I do think that one is born again when moving to CO.

My son Miles (1 year old) is a native. I live vicariously through him.
