After spending a few hours in Boulder, I could see that.
Seemed very "money".

Money indeed. Starting to inch toward Silicon Valley pricing and character. I really like the area, but we're pretty priced out, even as a technical writer working (contracting) for a big old tech company in the Valley. Guess that's why we're trying to find a bus, eh?

It looked like the yuppiest place I'd ever been... at least downtown.
That mall...
But the people I've met from there are super nice.

I have a bit different view of the area, having worked 911 in Boulder and Denver, and rescue all over Boulder County. Lots of entitled douchebags, but also a ton of super great people — and money doesn't dictate which group is which nearly as often as you'd expect.

(Now, if only there were a way to make a real living in EMS around here, I wouldn't have to keep being a techie!)

Well know what you mean but when money is low & people are making good of finding a bus for living think that's a good thing. Here I see people in beautiful apartments & 6 months time trying to sell furniture to pay their rent...terrible!

I've sold heirlooms I shouldn't have, and regret it everyday.

I have had a few people tell me the first thing they would do is remove the lift. My response was to call them an effing idiot and please don't share of your stupid ideas with me.

9 volt??? I don't know why you keep mentioning 9, when everything is nominal 12 volt (and actually runs higher than that).
