Exactly, it's a big area, lots of variety to the neighborhoods and not-so-neighborhoods.

Palmer is not full of rules, on the contrary, it could use some more ordinances like prohibiting parking vehicles on your lawn or leaving overflowing trash cans on the street for pickup (especially on windy days), etc..

This summer was consumed with the move then our vacation. Iím excited about exploring all the valley has to offer next summer. Hopefully I can give you guys the best fishing spots. The fishing wonít compare to your current spot, but I bet itíll be easier to access hiking and camping spots.

Another factor for us, was the year round opportunities for our kids.
How so?

Small town vibe. Not village bush, but hub bush.
