I had been reading several others threads seeing that a lot of locals (okay, generally speaking) do not care for the rich Californians moving in and changing things, so we do not need to go into all that. Perhaps I am thinking of the real old west or extra small towns that would (generally speaking) like old fashioned type, easy going people (maybe I've seen too many movies!) , although it does take all kinds to make a town, I understand. Mostly, I do not have anything against anybody, personally. I have lived in many states in this country - north, midwest, south and even California actually for a couple years! I simply thought some of the people in these western areas may be more welcoming to old fashioned styles of living (maybe these "old days" do not exist anywhere now). I supppose I was looking for some kind of loose acceptance (even though there is no need to) in that we would be "welcomed" in the west. Perhaps these areas are more like bigger cities than I thought initially. When "outsiders" read some of the things posted on some of these threads, they (including me) do begin to wonder. Interpretation - simple word form can all be clouded and misunderstood. Everyone has to live somewhere and make it on their own anyway.

Try Flagstaff Arizona. Cool in the summer, not so cold in the winter. Lots of scenery, and as you get closer to the southwest, more sunshine. Durango Co. would be nice also, as is Colorado Springs, CO.

I would recommend: Less words, more direct questions that can be answered. Your post IMO are all over the board and you are really asking some of the same questions in duplicate. Just some friendly advice.

Thank you for that suggestion, Prairieparson! I will research the area!

seven of nine ---? --- what questions am I asking in duplicate? It is really only about the initial post - on any ideas of where to move where perhaps a bit more sunshine would be in the west - and it could be anywhere as there are no limits - I am speaking so generally - if I understand you correctly though - since I received the general responses on Montana, I should go post different questions in different states - is this what you mean? Perhaps I do not understand the way it is all being posted! ------ what do you mean they are all over the board? I better go read some rules or something.

trying to understand the boards here -IMO??? ---- thanks!

Sorry, did not mean to imply any rule breaking. Just slow down a little. Much about living in Montana is thinking thru your thoughts. Perhaps your liberal use of the ! keeps me from reading through some of your questions. Focus on an area, then ask and others I am sure will be happy to help. The climate in Montana is so very different because the size of the state.

It's been posted on here many times and there are several threads deeper down that talk a lot about it, but many Montanans aren't very receptive to people moving in from the outside. There are a lot of different reasons for it, but my reason is that the people moving in to Montana have raised the price of property to out of reach to people who live and work there. Whitefish is my hometown and I can't afford to work and live there because of money from the outside.

Other people like the fact that Montana has been a low-crime state and often doesn't have the same issues and problems as other states. Some people feel that when outsiders move to Montana, they bring their problems with them.

So even though your husband might be "handy" and you might like to think that he will be readily accepted in Montana, that just may or maynot happen. It all depends on far more than a message board. But I don't think it's correct at all to say that everyone who is "handy" will be accepted. There's more to it than that. After all, a lot of Californians are handy as well.
