Hi folks - thanks for all the useful advice I have already received on these forums, first of all.

My wife has finally gone back to the US to teach, as it has been pretty much impossible for her to get into teaching over here in the UK. She landed a job in Wendover (which seems nothing like Wendover in England as far as I can tell!).

Does anyone have any information to share about the town? How difficult is it to find employment there? Is it as isolated as it looks on the map?

My wife has been there a week, and so far is pleasantly surprised by the friendly people and the surprising amount of shopping and amenities in such a small place.

Interesting - I posted this in the Utah section, as that is the side of town where my wife has gone, but now I find it's been shunted to Nevada... maybe a sign of things to come?

Yes! Wendover is more of a truck stop in the desert on a highway with motels, gas stations and restaurants (mostly fast food). There are casinos on the Nevada side of town which brings in a lot of tourists from Utah and elsewhere. Outside of that, there's not much there and not much to do. The nearest big city is Salt Lake City about 2 hours away. The Bonneville Salt Flats to the east has its own beauty. The Bonneville Salt Flats | Utah.com

Thanks for the information - I'm not sure it sounds like somewhere we could live long term...

I seriously doubt if you could stand the isolation it even short term. I know I couldn't and I've been in Nevada most of my life.

There are several daily shuttles that run from the casinos to SLC. Maybe see if they will let you hitch a ride over on the empty bus?

I don't know if anyone else is reading this thread, but it looks like there are 2 daily Greyhound buses between Wendover and Salt Lake City, although not at very convenient times!

Wendover - Salt Lake City: leaves Wendover at 4.10 am (gets to SLC at 6.10 am)
or 3.55 pm daily (gets to SLC at 5.55)

Salt Lake City - Wendover: leaves SLC at 11.35 am (gets to Wendover at 1.35 pm)
or 11.05 pm (gets to Wendover at 1.05 am)
