Distandrummer.......actually, Pueblo is a very well kept secret. What you see from the highway (like many American cities) is not indicative of the people or the beauty of the city itself. Pueblo is a clean, friendly city with some cool architecture from bygone era's. There are some cool old homes and neighborhoods that beckon from the past.

Pueblo was VERY cool! The old downtown is revitalized and the old homes are GORGEOUS! There's a cool artsy factor and neat stuff to do all over the place. It was a very nice place and I would have no problems going back there. A friend of mine who used to live there was on the same trip, and he said this recent trip had decided him that he would be retiring there. His wife really wanted to go back there, too.

I agree....I wouldn't mind retiring there. And the weather is just a tad warmer than it is in Denver. Longer gardening season. If you go through with your Airstream, get off the highway and drive through some of the beautiful old neighborhoods. Great photo opportunities using the houses as a backdrop to your trailer.

Last time I went thru there was in 1984. I was impressed with the huge differences between Pueblo and, say city of Denver or Colorado Springs..I'm sure it's gotten only better since~!
While driving a motorcycle between Pueblo and, Durango, I found the countryside view impressive or fantastic~! The river was awesome and, inviting..
Spend a wild night at an old 1940's style road side motel called Hermosa Court, just outside of Durango. Cost 20$ cash up front..No credit cards, thanks you said the mama san lady in her night gown.. Now that was one heck of neat place..lol

I won't tell my wife, a Pueblo native, about what was said here about Pueblo. Once a major producer of steel, the city has been remaking itself for quite a while. Part of it is quite nice and some of it needs some help—like just about every big city. A lot of retirees now (including my in-laws) in Pueblo and in a "settlement" west of the Pueblo called Pueblo West. PW is sprawl, pretty much treeless, and full of old people (old like me), about 20,000. I won't say I'd want to live in Pueblo, but it's better than Colorado Springs with all its righteousness and much too busy Denver. Now I'm in trouble.

Speaking of old Airstreams in junkyards.... in situations like this you can sometimes make a deal thru a third party. The seller may be afraid of getting in trouble selling to the wrong person but will sell to someone they know and can trust.

Offering large sums of money can help too.
