I know this may not be the best timing, since there seems to be a sarcastic battle of the regions going on between the Midwest and Rocky Mountain, but oh well. I live in Colorado currently, and as much as I love it, I need a change of scenery. I recently met a girl from Iowa, and am considering moving to be with her. I have never been there, but am going in about a month to visit her. So I guess I have to questions, one about the WRX presence in Des Moines, and one about the job market for my chosen profession, that being Backstage Theater.

I'll do the job part first. From what I can tell, there are like 13 colleges in Des Moines, with many in the surrounding area as well. This usually indicates a fairly good chance of finding work in a theater somewhere in town? This is an assumption, so I guess I am looking to get a general description of the scene there. I realize it is heavily agricultural there, but I also imagine people enjoy performance arts too. Anyone know any good venues to check out while I am there? Any info would be appreciated.

Second part is how many WRX people there are there. Coming from Colorado, the Subaru capital of the US, I imagine it is much less in Iowa. I have gotten in a bit with the WRX crowd here in Colorado, and they have been an awesome group of people to know. With some exceptions, WRX people have been very cool in my experience, both in person and on the Forums. SO yeah.....lets here it.

p.s. Just FYI, there are alot of people who just love to push buttons on the Mountain States pages, but its all in good fun so keep that in mind. :wiggles: JH

I haven't seen too much iowa activity here, heck the only guy that I know from iowa that's got a suby isn't on here. He's CR_TurboGuy on nasioc if you'd like to message him there. I don't know where he's from in Iowa though.


Good luck with this.

[rant I'm from eastern Iowa. But I don't have a WRX. As for WRX population, there is not a whole lot around here. But I don't know about the Des Moines area I don't get there much. If I'm out that way I skip Des Moines and go right to Ames. I have friends at ISU and will probably be attending there next year. As for the job market I have no idea what theater out there is like. But its easy as hell to get a tech job if your any good with computers. As for the people in Iowa, some may be a bit close minded but for the most part the people around here are good people. Subaru people or not. Did you try lookin' at Monster or any other big job search engine? If I were you I'd look into it. [/rant :D

Coolness. I am coming to visit my ladyfriend sometime between now and the 16th, so a day of hangout might be fun. Giving much thought to moving there and wanna see what the scene is like there. I have a feeling that working on cars might be my primary form of recreation, as my main one of whitewater kayaking doesn't really happen within 500 miles of Iowa. I'll definetly check out your sight, and it would be cool to maybe come hang out.
