That place is more of a cesspool than I thought. How awful. That region is pretty but you couldn't pay me enough to live there or anywhere in western Montana.

Thanks for the tip on Thompson Falls, Clark Fork Fantast. I'll do some research on that area too. Thompson Falls is about 2 hour drive from Missoula and Kalispell isn't it? Any idea how the drive is during the winter?

Thank you everybody for the comments. I really appreciate it.
MT 200 from TF to MT 135 (around paradise) to I 90 seems to be the fastest way to Missoula, although 200 to US 93 is a little more direct - both routes meander because of the mountains. Last winter was one of the worst for snowfall in a decade or more per the locals, but the main roads are plowed quickly. Unlike MN where I grew up, plowing here does leave some snow (MN tends to scrape to pavement), so I would recommend an AWD or 4WD for at least one of your vehicles.

I am in Noxon, and tend to opt to Sandpoint/Cour D'Alene/Spokane for major shopping and large consumer purchases, from TF you're slightly closer to Missoula than CD/Spokane, but you are close enough to go either direction for large city type services/entertainment/franchise dining. Plains has a hospital, although I would categorize it more as a urgent care facility than a full service hospital. Sandpoint, ID has a regional hospital (but it's not huge).
