I suppose outsiders telling us what we can or can't do on our own property isn't a good way to make friends here either. (not the illegal or nuisance things, just regular native folk stuff)

asked those entering not to "Californicate Oregon". I do not apologize for my
money nor will I rub anyone's nose in it either. I worked hard and so did the

There is none better...... Sherm and Margaret Triscuit......
Sorry you are no longer able to visit. Keep the spirit of Montana in your heart.

I'm 16 and live in Colorado. I go to a bible camp here in the south a few hours from The Four Corners region and a girl who lives in Montana comes there. She is the one of the nicest, sweetest, people in the world. And last year I went on a canoe trip with my dad an some of his friends in Montana. We stopped in Fort Benton where we got on the river and none of the people there treated us like outsiders. Everyone was kinda like family. Montana may be the fourth largest state in the U.S. and they may not have overcrowded cities or large populations but they have some of the friendliest faces in the world. One friend of my dads is from Red Lodge south of Billings. He and his wife were really easy to talk to. I don't know what dummies spread that crud around about your state treating others like outcasts and that means they have no idea of the true meaning of friednship

I was brought here by the Air Force, stationed at Malmstrom in Great Falls. My wife and I are originally from Northen Virginia, about an hour for D.C. Coming to Montana was a bit of culture shock, but one that turned out to be fantastic!

From the first phone call I made to local businesses trying to find a storage unit, to asking for directions, to the father and son owned buffalo ranch that gave us Buffalo Jerky passing through have been some of the friendliest "strangers" I've ever come across. I've traveled the East Coast in it's entirety, and the mindset of people (for the most part) is totally different. We enjoyed the slower pace of life and realized that the general mentality here is to live life, enjoy it, but it's not a rat race. It's not who has the best suit, working in the biggest building with the newest Mercedes.

My wife and I are set to PCS in June back to Hampton, VA (Langley AFB) and I cannot express how much I will miss Montana and it's people.

It's been a great stay, thanks for having us!

Thank you for your service to our country and I am pleased to know you enjoyed your stationing in Montana.

My Brother in Law was stationed at Malmstrom, Missle Wing. Now, While he was born here, he really enjoyed his time at Malmstrom.

Good Luck on your new posting, and always feel free to come and visit us on these boards whenever you like.

I never knew this about people coming in here & messing up the land and then leaving after awhile with a wake of mess behind.

I'm from the south, Georgia, and I have lived in many cities & traveled to many places. I've never been to the west but Montana comes off to me as a place I'd like to live for along time & travel through the state while working and living there. I love the nature scenery too.
