Re: If you could move anywhere in the US where would you go?

I've lived in the midwest pretty much my whole life, 7years in SC. If I were younger I would move to Wy. in a heart beat, if not there it would be Mt. Like I said if I were younger, as it stands now I will probably die in the Midwest. Like Broz stated don't wait wherever you go. As stated above get the hell out of New York before they come for your guns.

Re: If you could move anywhere in the US where would you go?

A large difference between west and east is that ya gotta put a lot of miles on to take advantage.

A gps distance of 35 miles take 54 miles to get there. Those are the short hunts. However, I do shoot yotes and got this years cow behind the house.

I grew up in western PA. Lived in VA for awhile. It was great. Joined the Navy to see the world. Got stationed for 4 years out of the 6 in southeast Idaho. Tho't I'd died and gone to heaven. Been here since 'cept for 18 mo in PA and 7 years in LA.

Remember this good advice: If ya wanna make a million dollars in Idaho, ya gotta work a million hours.

When I lived in those other states I could afford to do all the hunting I wanted in ID and PA.

Being retired w/a little blood pressure lift and the mortgage paid off, there ain't no moves in my future.

Goin' woof scouting/hunting/shooting in the morning south of Palisades Res.

Google on Palisades Idaho, Commissary Ridge or Flag Knoll Idaho and eat your heart out.

If there were a move in my future I'd pick Montana.

Re: If you could move anywhere in the US where would you go?

Lots of good choices, I suppose its going to come down to picking a few areas and the wife's employment. With my current job I can go almost anywhere and get work. I suppose it will be the same when I get my degree as well.

We had planned on moving but not for another 14 years, recent events have moved things along.

Re: If you could move anywhere in the US where would you go?

I too am done with NY State. I've wanted for quite some time to go West. West if the Mississsippi River that is. A trip to west Texas , the Sweetwater to Snyder area a few years ago has been the only time Ive been across big muddy.

I've driven through every state east of the Miss and there are a great many beautiful places. Did quite a abit of hunting and fishing when gas was affordable. Too many to list if I start thinkin' about it.

Right now, Montana or Idaho have been on my radar as is Wyoming. What about the Dakotas? or Nebraska? I've got some homework to do.

Born and raised in Montana. Left for a while, lived in Cheyenne, Laramie, Arizona, Kalifony. I came home. Hell I'm not sure I'd leave Havre if I won the lottery. Just no place else I have any desire to be than Montana. I don't even like taking trips out of state. lol

Horses? My baby

You folks thinking about heading out this way. What are your occupations? OP is going into the nursing field so I'd say Billings, Greatfalls, Missoula, maybe Bozeman. That's where the better paying nursing jobs are.
