Thank you all for posting you have enlightened me and have helped me more then you know. The weather for sure is much better in Idaho. However Mama has family in Texas and as we all know if Mama ain't happy no body is happy.. LoL…

Our plan as of right now is go visit North Texas (Canyon to be exact) in May after that I would like to travel to Idaho and check our some areas there.

The main thing we are looking for is small town yet close to Medical because we are both in our very early 70's. I have found a small town Kimberly Id. that I want to check into.

Again Thank you all for taking the time to post

Kimberly may be a good choice for you.
It's very close to Twin Falls, but still far enough away to remain its own little city. It will take a while before the two become one continuous metro, as it is with Boise/Meridian now.

The weather is generally milder in that area than in I.F./Pocatello/ the rest of the SE corridor, but in the summers, it's not as humid as the Treasure Valley can get.

Twin has all the services you'll need at your age, so I think Kimberly is worth a good lookover for you.

If you're looking at Canyon then you're talking Panhandle. That's West Texas, and that's a whole different biome.

Lots of wind, lots of dirt, and sometimes significant snow and ice. Thunderstorms and hail, yes. Sometimes tornados, though not as prevalent as North Texas.

Only real geological feature is Palo Duro Canyon. Otherwise it's flat and brushy.

Incidentally, North Texas is considered the region of the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex and north, from Wichita Falls in the west over to Texarkana in the east.

Again banjomike I have to thank you for your incite and input. I have read most of this thread to my wife and it really looks like we will venture and skip going to Texas at all. Especially after reading what aiden_is wrote

aiden_is thanks for the heads up, we have traveled I-40 many times going through Amarillo but never gave it much thought to live in the area. Until wife expressed desire to move out of Calif and move to Texas. Her relitives live in the Houston area and there is no way this California boy is going to live in all that humid and hurricane prone area...… LoL

By the way, to correct some earlier posts, Mountain Home is not 75 miles away from Boise. It's about 45 miles to downtown Boise from Mountain Home. Even going to Meridian is just about 50 miles. And I-84 is a fairly straight interstate with 80 MPH speed limit so it doesn't take too long (though it can be dicey on occasion during the winter).
