Places like Colorado, Montana, they're oh so beautiful but all that beauty it does have it's trade offs. For one you have some pretty harsh weather situations sometimes and for another for water you only have lakes and rivers and that. I do like the scenery there, think it's gorgeous and would love to visit, but I could never wish to live someplace so far from a major ocean. I like lakes, love rivers, but I have to be somewhat near an ocean. It's just in my blood somehow, that need to be around a huge body of salt water. But hey, to each their own. If plains and mountains do it for you than so be it and I honestly wish you happy there. Someone has to live there and like it I suppose. My idea of the perfect location "West" that's CA, WA, OR. I could never live where you do and like it for long. It would drive me crazy after a while big beautiful skies and mountains notwithstanding.

Aye and think of the length of cable required from the dish on that snow capped mountain down to the house.

Yup. More and more it's becoming important to keep those kind of secrets.

One of our first trips without the kids and the start of our treks to all of America's treasures was to Montana. It still remains my favorite. I envy your living there.

I agree, Bob. But I lived in Montana for 35 years before I came to the SW portion and I can't believe what I'd missed all those years.

I like the salt water, too. The crowds around it, however, are too much for me on a long term basis. Basically, I'm a hermit.

Actually, it's HD cable.

Just from the end of the driveway to the house.

I totally agree, but most of the tourists never venture out on back roads. And as a result, they never know what they've missed.

Don't give up. Maybe someday....

I'm very lucky to have been here since 1974. And even luckier to have been able to stay here after retirement.

Looks a lot like the town I live in!
Beautiful, fun, but sometimes harsh. We like to say that keeps the riffraff out.

I lived in Colorado 30 years ago, too many people now. Montana's a beautiful part of the US, but I need a little more green.

I do need to take a road trip out that way again, the wide open spaces and big skies are incredible.

I agree for the front range and I-70 but out here on the Western Slope it's not so bad. I'd love to check out Montana too.
