Please no, those things are disgusting. Hey If you are from Calif. you should know what go food is, (or is it all hippy crap down there too?) go around to some of the bakeries here, and you can't tell me that that stuff is good/quality stuff. Most of that stuff is baked by cheap labor college kids who never measured a cup of flour in their life and won't keep the job for more than a couple weeks.
"What do you say JJM?" - is that is a proposition, young lady you should be ashamed of yourself, beside I doubt you are my type - but you never know.

Default Is This How People Really Treat You In Missoula?

So if that kind of thing doesn't bother you, or if you have a more liberal outlook, Missoula is probably worth checking into.Also, they are really prejudiced to fat/overweight people there. I am 50 lbs overweight, and I got harassed for that also, by people yelling out obsenities at me just for how I looked. On a more positive note, the climate there is very nice. I live in Great Falls, and the weather here is crappy compared to Missoula. I would love to live there, but, unfortunately, I just can't handle bigotry in any form.

Has anyone else experienced this kind of attitude and/or treatment in Missoula or elsewhere in Montana just because they were overweight?

Have spent much time in Missoula, had a place a few miles east and had extended visits/part time residency since 1987.. Some local Montanans, particularly long-timers are not my cup-o-tea and found them downright coy but NEVER experienced or even witnessed behavior like(obsenities) that from adults.
I did have some local "yee-haw" s.o.b. at a self serve station between East Missoula and Bonner try like hell to get water to spray from his squeege while washing the bugs off his windshield (what was left of it anyhow) and fling it back at my motorcycle. The intent was SO obvious, he was trying to stir up trouble. Fortunately, his aim left much to be desired . I let him know (for no reason politely) to be more considerate of people around him he offered no apology-just a smug smile, aka "smerk" and continued but obviously concerned he riled a genuine hardcore. Its very rare I perpetuate the myth of the "outlaw biker" as this is a perception I wish to go away however I took a moment to make an impression on him. I would bet these types spend many a night in jail in Missoula!

Thumbs up Missoula's great

Lived in and around Missoula for a decade. A great town.
But a lot of transplants and liberal idealism.
The mountains, fishing, hunting, hiking, and downtown community are beautiful.
One can learn a lot in its environs.

So someone gave you the finger for putting your moral opinions about a politically charged issue out in the public eye for everyone who might disagree with you to see? And now everyone from missoula must be jerks? I'm sorry but you put that sticker on your car to provoke thought did you not? Sounds like he thought about it and decided to give you his opinion of your opinion lol. Was it nice? no, but you cant expect everyone in a town this large to be nice.

Same with your broad assumption about all of missoula must hate overweight people, you seem to be the one making all the assumptions based on a very limited experience with the people that live here. You cant get along with everyone and for the most part Ill say the community here is very excepting of anyone who comes here.

So as far as Missoula goes Ill give you a general description.

People, The people here are as I said very nice for the most part. Crime is low and to someone who has lived in a large city it would feel very cozy and hospitable.

Weather, Its mild here all year round. Summers can get a bit hot and winters can get a bit cold but there are few extremes as we do sit in a nice little protected area with mountains all around us so snow is light rain is about normal as in you wont be stuck inside much and once again its rare we have any kind of bad weather for an extended period of time.

One thing I would warn people about is fire season, We have fires that have made it close to town and for the most part they dont effect us too bad but if you have asthma or some kind of issue it could get real uncomfortable if a fire gets close to town. For the most part I dont notice it but then I dont have any respiratory issues.

Recreation, This is the part I take issue with the most but it really just depends on what you like to do. If your an outdoors person there’s tons of things to do, places to go, lakes, rivers, trails, camping, fishing, hunting etc, all here or within a short drive away. If you're like me and are 20% outdoors and 80% city entertainment its fairly dead. Dont expect rock concerts or a lot of other things that make it to large towns but we do get some of them to swing by from time to time and having the University of Montana here helps with that a good bit. All in all its a good town that has room to grow and a good place to raise a family even though it is a little short on entertainment for teens but the city has been good about trying to address issues and even put in a bunch of water parks that are just great for kids.

You can actually dive in flathead if you have the certification.

The transportation is ok not the best missoula was designed by three people each taking a section and so streets are a pain in the ass in some spots, we have a large amount of cyclists here and a good number of trials throughout the city so they can get around and its a viable form of daily transportation depending on where you live and work but for the most part the town is just small enough you can bike to just about to any job and back.

Well I cant think about much else to say about it here so good luck!

I find this very hard to beleive, as half of the women in Missoula are overweight, - don't beleive me - just look and count.
