lol. If you can't already tell. I am sort of lost. I kind of need to know what I need to do, but I need a direction to go in. Montana seems like a lovely state (I know you hear it all the time). It's not set in stone that Montana is where I will end up, but after talking to my hubby at length about the future, we have both decided we would definitely like to live in Montana if the occasion were to arise.

I am a wildlife management major and should graduate (if all goes well), by December 2010. I am married, we will be 22 and 25 when the move comes and we could possibly be bringing a 4 year old with us. (My niece, long story.) I want to work for the Department of the Interior, but specifically the Bureau of Land Management.

We have both lived in Texas our whole lives, but I have travelled through the rocky mountains extensively and know what the weather can be like to a certain extent. We would really like to know exactly what we need to be looking out for and things to keep in mind.

We don't know much about moving long distances and the housing market and just want to be put on the right path.

It always isn't possible to do a lot of visiting a few places before moving but it sure helps in preventing a big mistake. My advice would be to lock in jobs in areas you think you would like to live. You are still young and my guess is that you may not own a lifetimes worth of possessions yet. It's easy to become a "pack-rat" and after many years, trying to move can be a major chore. Don't collect too much stuff at first until you are sure you made the right choice. It isn't that big of a deal to move when your still young and you may have to live in a few places until you feel that you are really home for good.

Alrighty then, just follow the yellow brick road. Just remember if you move to Montana you won't be in Kansas anymore, um, I mean Texas.

If the photo below looks good to you (where's the friggin road !) and if you can deal with temps down to 35 or 40 degrees below zero (not counting wind chill) then Montana just may be the place for you !

What is fun when you're young can turn into a pain in the patootie after you get to be fifty or sixty and beyond.
Here are two more winter time photos, the first one is the snow in my tiny backyard here in Conrad from one storm. The second photo is a picture of a rare natural occurrence. They are NOT snow covered round hay bales. They are called snow rolls or snow rollers. The wind forms them much the same way a child (or adult !) makes the large snowballs for a snow man. The wind flops some snow over from the snow surface and then flops it over again until it becomes round and it just keeps getting larger until it gets too heavy for the wind to push any more.

There's a road?? And where's my house??

Hey, what camera do you have that tolerates cold like that? My little Fujifilm (rebadged Olympus) closes up shop when it hits about 50 degrees!!

That's one thing about the old film cameras... they were expensive to operate but they didn't care what the weather was like.
