The views are stunning, can’t beat the hunting and fishing, but yeah winters last a good 6 months, but the weather from spring to fall it’s downright heaven
    Funny thing me, my wife, and daughter just moved from the Logan, Utah area to the Boise, Idaho area for work (about two months ago). Home prices here are insane, very similar to Utah where we left. We are currently renting in Kuna, which is about 30 minutes Southwest of Boise without traffic. It is much more rural than Boise, a bit of a drive to the standard shopping places (winco, cosco, etc.), but we chose it over another option in downtown Boise just to avoid living in the bigger city. We really enjoy the area, people are very nice, the area is great for taking walks and day trips to hiking locations and the like. We are still just barely scratching the surface of what to do here, but if you like the outdoors, I don't think you could do better. I know of one decent public range about 20 minutes away, but I have only driven past, never actually shot there. If you like shooting competitions, they have everything from USPSA to shotgun shooting. Parma and Nampa both have solid practical shooting clubs, and ranges with plenty of bays to use.

    The one downside is cost of housing. I have read several reports of Boise being the highest increase in housing costs in the entire country. It might not be #1, but it is close. Several coworkers have mentioned their values doubling in not many years. I sure hope things level out eventually, because we would really like to buy/build a home here, but it is just not possible in the current market. There is a lot of development though, so hopefully supply/demand comes a bit more in balance in the next few years.

The cost of the new place--which is 900 sq. ft. larger than our than our existing 50-year-old home, and laid out much better--was 35% lower than the low-end range of what our current place is assessed to sell for in Puget Sound. Lots of tech people moving here and snapping up all the houses.

    Can't wait to get to a place that upholds the Constitution. The leftist tyrants running this state have lost their minds. And there are too many hipsters around here, the culture in Puget Sound makes me crazy. I hear there are some in ID too , but mostly concentrated around Boise and resort areas. Hope they stay there.

    As AOTAC says, there *is* no perfect place. We're realistic about that. But we have some friends there in Western ID. And we figure we should be in a community of folks that share at least the same core values we do about the country, the Constitution, and liberty.
    Good luck, brother; wish I could get the old boatanchors pulled up to follow you.

    Well you have some aging family in the area, if I remember right. I'd probably do the same thing in your situation.

    The "boatanchors" ARE my relatives, who somehow think a little weather inconvenience (and don't get me wrong, I hate winter myself) is a bigger problem than a Leftist regime that actively WANTS to kill or enslave you. "Ewww, cold winters, hot summers, icky inbred hicks..."*snort*
