Yeah but it's their only one. I don't know if I'd want to live in Laramie either.

I'd choose Wyoming over Alabama any day, but I do hate Wyoming with a passion. Whenever I drive in Wyoming I go at least 10 over just so I can get to Colorado faster. I got my only speeding ticket just 5 miles into Wyoming too! Grr! Now I can't even speed there!

Both States are beautiful and for those of us that don't need constant stimulation of civilization to be entertained, wonderful to be in.
Ditto. There are nice pics of Alabama posted on their forum and I'd love their weather~actually year-round. But I HAD to vote for my neighbor, Wyoming. The scenery is absolutely beautiful, the air is fresh and clean, clear mountain water, peace and quiet, nature all around, friendly people, etc.

I would live in Alabama. Better food, close to the beach, people actually live there, more night life, better jobs, close to exciting areas like Atlanta or New Orleans, more culture, better weather, better music, better schools, etc.

If Wyoming were a better place to live there would be more than 600,000 people living there. Obviously, the people have spoken.

haha. I'd have to say Alabama. Visited it earlier this summer and i had a great time. The scenery is really nice. Wyoming is has really great scenery, but scenery can only do so much for me. Eventually, you have to socialize and nature doesn't necessarily talk back. Thus, I vote for Alabama.

I think that letting population decide whether or not a place is "better" is foolish. More people live in Khartoum, Sudan than San Fransisco, that doesn't make it better.

Alabama. It's closer to home, and it just has more going for it. There is a TON of international interest in Alabama. It's rolling hills also provide acceptable scenery. I just feel like it has more to offer than Wyoming, but that could be because I don't know that that much about Wyoming. When I think Wyoming, I think big huge mountain ranges and wildlife everywhere. I think of a more modern place with more ammenities and things to do when I think of Alabama. Wyoming would be an awesome place to visit, though.
