"middle of nowhere"? You're a hop, skip, and a jump (an hour and a half) from Cheyenne, and only 3 hours from Denver! You're an hour and a half from some of the best skiing, fishing, and boating (as well as pure clear water) at Lake McConaughy. You would be dead center in the middle of shows, museums, and eclectic living on the west, with the absolutely stunning beauty of nature (not to mention some upper-end motels and restaurants) in the east. You will meet a steady flow of all sorts of folk, from hunters and ranchers to college students and partiers; Sidney is famous for its Oktoberfest. With a little less than 7,000 people in the city, you are surrounded by farms and cattle ranches. The air is clean and sweet, the folks are friendly and educated, and Sidney is a progressive little town in its own right.
Would I move there? No. WAY. I chose a town of 145 people, as far away from people as possible, on purpose. Sidney is not my preference (of course I don't like Denver either). I AM in the "middle of nowhere" - Sidney isn't even close
But if you work at Cabela's, someday you might meet me!
The property and living expenses are probably far less than you would encounter in Cheyenne or Denver, too, BTW. If you want to save money for a place in either WY or CO, Sidney would be a good place to start... and a good home base to be in, if you wanted to go look at property on your days off.
