that is the 2nd Zappa reference I have received on here!!! lmao

I am half way thinking I should! Wouldn't that be funny. ... hmmmm

But it is not on my original agenda. I'm living in Philly, or subs of it. And well...yeah...time to pack up and find new scenery, or just a new life. Bored with the one I have, and always wanted to go west, but not far west ya know?

West, like West Virginia? or the real west?

I once threw a dart at a map and then moved to the town where the dart landed.
If you are 'running away' from something, don't bring your baggage with you.

Run 'to' a new town, plan to be happy, adjust yourself to fit in with the local population and you will be happy.

West as in NOT California west.

Running away? Not me. I was raised to face things. So....the only baggage I will have is the kind with my stuff like, clothes.

Just bored with the place I live at. My wife also. I tend to move around. But I met my wife and settled down. Raising a kid, and soon she will be an adult. So...why not? I haven't heard reason not to move to Montana. The state is attractive, and has all the modern comforts that will keep my wife comfortable.

Also I have my mother -in-law and her sister who are coming with us.

My kid likes the idea of UM as a school for her to attend. So why not?

I have grown tired of the area I am in now. I am looking for a more peaceful living.

Baggage...silly....

I don't know much about Montana except that it is considered Gods Country.The pictures I've seen are breath taking. I've considered moving there and starting a new life. No not to escape my life just to enhance it. I don't know the cost of living though. Can anyone tell me about what the cost is? I currently live in Ohio. I grew up in PA and it was beautiful but to just imagine Montana makes me smile.

Though others may disagree, you can control your costs of living through being a bit innovative and willing to do some work that you may otherwise be unaccustomed to doing. Like what, you ask?

>Cut and split your own firewood for heat.
>Build your own small home, or buy a fixer-upper.
>Harvest your own food: Fish, hunt and your own vegetables, chickens and eggs.
>Accept a higher quality of life rather than seeking more of the "High life".

Also, (having been a Midwesterner for half my life), you will find winters and summers here less extreme due to the reduced humidity. You will need to learn to water your crops more often, but for us we couldn't be happier with the trade offs we've made.

Your Mileage May Vary from what we've concluded.

Good luck,

mg

You really don't have to worry about offenders. Whenever a child is kidnapped/violated, it makes headlines here, which is less than ten times per year it seems. Just because offenders are there, it doesn't mean they will do anything.

Having lived in Philly for a year back in the early 50s, I can understand why you want a beautiful place like Montana.

Depending where in OH you are you may experience some sticker shock here in MT. Not California prices but still higher than one would expect when they think about Montana. (I grew up in OH).
