I'd like to relocate in about a year and settle down permanently in one of these areas. No matter how I look at it, I can't decide which place is the best for me.

- I like lots of space, sky, nature, mountains, and lakes.
- I like walking for miles without seeing much of "civilization."
- I like good, friendly neighbors who watch out for each other.
- I like growing my own fruits and veggies - a lot. Although these are areas with shorter growing seasons, I still prefer them.
- I like living where "less is more" in government.
- I like quiet, simple living.

I'm open to considering other places, but these places seem to be the the most "clean."

Any thoughts?

You might also want to consider Wyoming. Wyoming has some of the most beautiful areas in the United States, and while the population is rising, there are still lots and lots of open spaces where you can enjoy the mountains, lakes, and rivers all to yourself. Plus the people there are some of the friendliest you'll ever meet.

Thanks for responding. Actually, Wyoming is on my list. It's one state I haven't had the time to do much research on. (Isn't Wyoming very expensive?) I've spent most of my time researching norther Idaho and Montana, because I like to be near Canada. There are a lot of places I like in the US, but I'm not sure I want to go any further south than Wyoming.

I just wish land weren't so expensive everywhere you go.

hey Simple Living...
I agree with lovethewest. WY is absolutely jaw-droppingly beautiful. Although "expensive" is relative to where you currently are, no...WY is not very expensive. Places near Jackson and Yellowstone are. But not everywhere.
The problem in WY seems to be a lack of housing due to an energy boom that is going there currently. Lots of oil workers, etc...and all need housing.
If I was going to choose a place from your list, I'd probably go with western Montana. I was out there last summer...drove the Beartooth highway up from Cooke City to Red Lodge, MT and camped somewhere in near the WY/MT border. Beautiful country! I posted a bunch of WY pics from our trip over in the WY forum here. Check 'em out!
