    Sounds like a cool gig.

    Maybe a single guy going to Frisco will find his Felicia.

    Nothing to add here but to say I stayed in Frisco on my way to Grand Junction from Denver. Not a bad little town on the western slope. It's just on the other side of the Eisenhower Tunnel (I think that's what it's called) on I-70. Beautiful area.

    I'd love this job. Living in the mountains. Skiing, etc. Too bad you need to have won the lottery to live up there.

    Frisco is at the bottom of the Eisenhower Tunnel (the Continental Divide) to the west, about 70 miles west of Denver. Next to Silverthorne and the turnoff for going to Breckridge. Lots of outdoors stuff here. And this job will not pay enough to afford to live there, but still a great area.
