Fall in Western MT is typically very beautiful. The sky is clear and blue, the colors are beautiful. We get a long indian summer almost every year.

The Missoula area and Bozeman area are two of the most rapidly growing areas of the state.

6 & 7 year olds aren't very critical of one another, so your son should be fine.

I can't imagine anyone in my circle of friends even raising an eyebrow at a person who commented on being vegetarian.

Did you settle on a place yet?

Why are people so worried about moving to a new place and having the town like them? Shouldn't you be more concerned whether or not you like the town?

Cheeky, if you don't need to live in a larger town for work, then don't even think about Missoula or Bozeman. I'd look somewhere between Butte and Bozeman or Ennis or the Ruby Valley (Sheridan, Twin Bridges, Alder etc.) The nice thing about this area is close enough proximity to the larger towns for supplies but then you can leave the traffic and hustle bustle behind and come home to your peaceful existance.

You can drive to Bozeman in an hour and go to the Co-op, do your veggie shopping and hit Costco for veggies and head on home like I do.

All restaurants offer vegetarian dishes around here, even The Old Hotel in Twin Bridges so you will not go hungry.

Also, I wouldn't go around publicizing you're an atheist, just do your own thing and live and let live. No one will care one way or another. Not everyone around here goes to church and you won't be thought of as bad if you choose not to go.

And lastly, land is much less expensive over here, days are bright and sunny all winter, we get less snow and don't have concerns about crime, traffic, parking etc. The worst thing that might happen to you in the summer months is if you leave your car windows down while in the local store picking up some provisions, you might come out to find someone has left a bag of zucchinis in your car. (they grow really well here!!!)

Don't be discouraged by the neighsayers. This valley is also a bigtime cattle area and the ranchers are all growing hay all summer. BUT if you don't prefer to eat beef, you won't be dragged around by your ankles behind BillyBob's pickup!

I'm also an atheist and I think we're a very small percentage of the population no matter where we live. I'm always respectful of the beliefs of others but I don't think you need to hide that fact. I've just never found the claims of any religion to be realistic or believeable but at the same time I also believe in the freedom of religion and don't feel I need to convert anyone to my way of thinking. Last Christmas I was in Montana and my Step-Father was also having a family reunion at the house. His family is very religious so of course the conversation drifted that way and after being asked about my beliefs I told them I was an atheist and explained why. Their jaws dropped at first but I was respectful to them and they're very nice people. Just respect the beliefs of others and you'll have no problem.

I actually know of several people in Montana who are vegitarian, my brother to be included. I'm not a huge meat eater either, I like steak sometimes, but most of the time Ilike my fruits and veggies... Granted, most people don't get it, but they don't hate me for it. There are stores where you'll be able to find suitable food for you as well, my brother used to shop in Helena at the real food store (I believe that's the name).

Default What is on that table?

I eat what I like to eat, and you can eat what you like to eat. I'll share a table with anyone once.
