Well, they are both flat.. That is enough of a reason for me not to live there.. I am sure the people in Eastern MT have better hearts, but living around sagebrush, prairies and endless open range isn't for me.

Plus Eastern Montana is nowhere near any big city. For some that might be a plus, but depending on where you are in Indiana, you are close to Indianapolis, and if in the NW part of the state, Chicago. Eastern Montana has Billings, but for most it is a 3-4 hour drive. If you want to be furthest away from any city of size, (excluding Alaska), try Miles City, MT.

That's my point pw72, if you are going to be living around 100s of miles of flat nothing, you might as well have some cities or other attractions around that make it worthwhile. I cannot imagine a winter in Eastern Montana is any better, and most likely worse , than Indiana. Now, if I am in a place like Whitehorse, with majestic mountains, lakes, rivers and some of most amazing scenery in the world, yes, then I would feel it is worth living away from civilization. I am a mountain man at heart, is why.. I know some cowboys who just cannot be without endless open prairies and range for their cattle and the feeling of being in the wide open as far away from humans as possible. Eastern MT/WY is probably for them.
