Within an hour or 2 of Moab... that will limit you to some pretty small towns. Not to say small towns aren't great (I live in one, but 3 hours from Moab
) but of course opportunities are limited. To the East on I-70 you've got Green River and to the West the closest cities will be Salina and Richfield.
What kind of industry do you work in now? Hopefully there's a demand in the area as it would really be cool to live that close to Moab and the San Rafael Swell. I'm headed down there this weekend to do some Jeeping
