We’ve done it, we’ve moved Big Shifter from the wonderful (or, formerly wonderful) state of Colorado to the adventurous and beautiful state of Wyoming. When I told one of my friends we had moved, he asked with a smile on his face, ‘Why-oming?’

We moved our business and our family to Wyoming when we had enough of Colorado; it’s politics, it’s out of control growth, cost of living and other issues that continued to degrade our way of life. It was time for a change and my wife and I had been talking about moving for some time, we just didn’t know where we would move to.
We knew somewhere smaller, somewhere with a greater sense of community, and a place people loved to be. We visited friends in a place called Sheridan Wyoming and fell in love with the area. It was no contest. This move was going to happen.
Three months later, we had prepped our house in Colorado, made necessary improvements and sold our home for over 15 years. We hauled our house and all of our stuff in two uHauls and four cars and were so thankful the weather was good because we are learning that it could have been much different in Wyoming.
I thought that living in Colorado, we had seen extreme weather, but northern Wyoming has its own brand of weather. So yes, things could have been very different moving in December.
What we have experienced during our short time here is a fantastic city and state where the people are genuinely friendly, and they love being here. In talking with many people in Colorado, we have seen their face twists up as they talk about living in the Denver area and the less than positive changes that have been happening in Colorado in general. But, in Wyoming, people love it here, their faces light up as they talk about their community, the lifestyle, the outdoors and the state’s rich history.
So, the Kulvinskas family is now a Wyoming family and Big Shifter is now a Wyoming company. We are excited to be a part of such a lovely State and look forward to growing our faith, family, and relationships in such a place.
Greetings from Wyoming! Here’s to new beginnings and adventures!
