I thought I start this thread because there seems to be a flood of people wanting to move to Montana. I too am GUILTY of that! I figured this would be great for us newbie’s who want to move but would also like to see what other possible movers are thinking.

KEEP IT SHORT, SWEET, AND TO THE POINT!!

1) Current City and State =

2) Why do you want to leave =

3) Where In Montana and Why =

4) 2nd and 3rd Place States =

5) What’s currently holding you back from moving =

6) Anything else you want to tell us that we dont know? =

Bah.

I just saw this as a 'related thread' after making my thread!

Quote:
1) Current City and State = Raleigh, NC

2) Why do you want to leave = People (rather, prevailing attitudes); poor planning; government...for us, this is less of a 'why leave?' question and more of a 'why go?'

3) Where In Montana and Why = We don't know! I'm completely lost and have no idea.

4) 2nd and 3rd Place States = Idaho and Wyoming

5) What’s currently holding you back from moving = Decision making. I just got braces on; that had been a holdback, but I finally just decided I am fine with traveling back to NC for visits.

6) Anything else you want to tell us that we dont know? = Cookies are awesome.

I'm loving reading everyone's answers to this!

KEEP IT SHORT, SWEET, AND TO THE POINT!!

1) Current City and State = Santa Fe, NM/Honolulu, HI

2) Why do you want to leave = Want to live somewhere with continuous forest, relatively unpopulated, a graduate program in anthro

3) Where In Montana and Why = Missoula - school, restaurants, grant-writing work, I prefer medium-size cities (50,000-100,000 pop).

4) 2nd and 3rd Place States = idaho, washington

5) What’s currently holding you back from moving = making and saving money for the move.

6) Anything else you want to tell us that we dont know? = I love NM, but don't want to have to live in Albuquerque in order to go back to school or commute from santa fe. I've been doing lots of research (i love this forum!) into the move and am so excited about montana! the people who i've met who have lived in missoula have gone on and on about how much they love the place. everything about it seems to suit me. I'm looking to rent a little place a bit out of town, get some chickens and another dog, and do grant-writing work till i qualify for resident tuition.
