Like the good folks said you outta check out Bozeman. There's a hospital and I reckon a gal in your line might just be able to make some inroads there.

You'll never know if you don't give it a try.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Thanks for the encouragement. I do wonder about surviving the conditions during winter though. And by the way...someone said I would have to get rid of the Expedition I drive and get a "different" one...something about because up north they use alot of salt on the roads and it would "ruin" the car I now have....you mean they make vehicles to be able to resist the corrosion of salt? Any truth to this?

Yes and no.

It's true that de-icer (not salt per say) is used on roads in the winter to help melt the ice. It lasts longer and more effective than sand and the cities don't have the dust pollution problem that san causes. And de-icer can increase rusting in steels, though the ones that are used today are less corrosive than the table salt variety years ago.

Modern cars aren't as suspectible to corrosion problems because much of their bodies are made from plastic rather than metal parts, and of course, plastic doesn't corrode. So modern cars don't show the signs of rusting that cars of years ago used to.

Yes, do visit first. Especially in the winter. I had snow in my backyard until July. I live in the mountains pretty high up. If you like wolves, Missoula might be a place for you to check out. They have two hospitals there. I am born and raised montanan and yes winters do get long and dreary. Good luck

I don't want to get you down about coming to Montana, but...being a good shot does not mean you have what it takes. Eastern Montana has milder winters but lots of wind and no trees or mountains. Western Montana has less wind, lots of trees and mountains but very long winters that can drag out until the middle of the summer. Beautiful moonlight horse rides in the snow sounds so romantic. A more realistic scene would be your horse slipping and slidding on the ice, 20 below zero without the windchill and the rider freezing his/her butt off. You have to get off and walk your horse so that your feet don't freeze. Your hands are so cold that you can barely get the saddle unchinched and the bridle off when you are done. You have to be informed and prepared.

No, I live in Seattle right now. I'm primarily out here because the job market is much better here. Housing prices are expensive in Montana and salaries are very low. I'm from there - born and raised in Whitefish and graduated college from Montana State University.

I still have friends that live in Bozeman but they're umemployed right now and I'm working mandatory overtime, so I guess I can't complain.
