Looks like you're going to land right in the middle of the warm country. Not too many trees around the Tri-Cities but its a great place and with the 3 cities there's lots of places to shop and things to do. It seems to be a constantly growing area.
The good thing, in addition to the shooting that you already know is available to you, is that you won't be far from the Blues, the Cascades, Oregon or even Idaho. So shooting and or hunting shouldn't be a problem.
Sounds like you've got a good job and already have some good shooting spots lined up, so now you just need to explore all of the new stuff.
Yeah, I've heard it's called the Washington "desert" in this area. I think the change of scenery/latitude will do my family and I good. Does this mean I'll have to re-work loads up for my rifle(s) because of the differences in atmospheric conditions?
I had an offer to move to the Texas, Ft. Worth area but couldn't convince the wife. She kept saying "we can't move to an area just because the hunting is good!" I told here she was right, there's got to be a little shooting in there somewhere!! LOL! I was trying to psych her up for the Arizona, New Mexico area when this Washington job came up. I told her about all the game out there and believe it or not she said I'd probably need a bigger rifle. I just about fell out! What a woman.
I am so ready! JohnnyK.
