Rod makes a good point. I would believe the Colorado roads are bad this year as last winter 2021 we had extended days of minus 14°F weather following 2020 fires and mudslides. We just moved back in late 2019 and we had little rain that summer and drought the summer of 2020. When we were here 1978-1981 at the Academy we had thunderboomers every summer afternoon almost. Now this summer we had 2" of rain last Sunday and good rains almost every other day. Temps touch into the mid 90s a few days but we have also been in the mid 70s to mid 80s for a couple of weeks now. So roads here are likely undermined by water runoff from the monsoon season that has returned, and damaged from above by the burn scar runoff and mudslides.
It will be interesting to see how things pan out. I am glad we are not on the western slope. I had looked at the area around rifle, but too far from shopping for my dear SH. Dang I am glad I listened. I would not want to be on the western slope with the fires and or smoke from several states on fire. Next month will be interesting in the sense of the ancient Chinese curse.
Could you explain why your license / registration / insurance would be invalid?
Asking as we went through a similar deal a while back (resident of MN building new place in ND [year out]; sold MN place then stayed at lake, in RV and various rentals across the US until the new place was completed). Basically went mobile until the new place was done.
Anyway, we couldn't get ND residency until we had a physical address in the state. For the duration between MN sold and ND available we left our residency in MN via a PO box. Changed all addresses to the MN PO box including our insurance and licenses. None of that behavior invalidated insurance, registration or licenses.
