    Thanks guys. The move is going to be grueling but it is what it is. I know some of you have made the move to other states so I’m sure the payoff is going to be worth it. It will finally be nice to live where things make sense and I can have pride in my home state. Something I haven’t had in a long time.

    Eventually there will be a shop going up but not right away. Haven’t figured out what size I want so I’ll wait to see what my needs are. As much as I would love to get paid for being a moderator, unfortunately it just doesn’t happen!

    Actually I’ll be down in SE idaho. Pocatello/Chubbuck area. I’m looking forward to exploring the area and surrounding states.

    Congrats on your move out of CA. I guess WA would be a upgrade coming from there. As someone who has lived in OR and WA my whole 48 years, it has definitely changed. It used to be very conservative but the last 15-20 years it has turned left. Now I’m seeing extreme left tendencies and I expect it to get worse with local governments supporting that. Really too bad because the PNW is so beautiful so long as you can deal with the rain.

    Congrats Dave! It sucks that you were forced to leave, but just be glad you were able to. Too many people get stuck in States like the PRK and just can't move due to family, job, etc.

    I've got a buddy that works in Boise and there are some great parts where you guys are moving to. You'll enjoy it!

    I'm probably the most liberal guy on this forum though, so I have a different take on the PNW. It used to be being a democrat meant support for unions, and free speech.... its only recently where literal insanity has crept in. I'm hopeful more rational voices come forward so we don't end up dividing the country!
    Anyway, best of luck to you and yours, the new digs look badass!

    It's posts like this that remind me to be very thankful for where I live. My neighbors don't care that I shoot, other than perhaps being curious about what I'm shooting. That's the way it should be. I do my part to keep it this way by contributing to the campaigns of the candidates who are on our side.

    Very nice area, dry and warmer than some other parts of the state. Saw that part of the state when I drove up to see the eclipse. Best of luck at your new homestead, we'll want to see how its turning out.

    Thatís just it Rob, people are forced to move because of insane politicians. If not then itís either jump on board with what your against or be unhappy with everything everyday. Either choice you make your happiness is deteriorated. I found myself being negative daily about everything and just couldnít do it anymore. Weather has a lot to do with it also. Waking up everyday and itís majority rain and grey overcast doesnít help the mood.

    Warmest part of idaho. Trying to convince the wife to move to a place with more snow was not easy. The warmer summers, sunshine everyday, and minimal rain was the selling point. She is onboard with the move and is in the same boat as me as far as loosing our place and accepting how WA and OR has changed and will continue to change. But, she is looking towards the future at our new place and is excited about it.

    You know it! Idaho has over 1000 miles of ATV trails to explore also. So it will be nice to see what’s here in the way of hunting. About the only thing I’ll miss about moving is no ocean for crabbing and lack of salmon.

    Now you can build a homey-home to live in. Faux-marble palace looked pretty sterile with all the stuff moved out.

    Unless I'm mistaken, Idaho has the most BLM land in the lower 48, if not the entire country, so this should keep you busy for a few weeks at least.

    It is. It needs a lot of decor to make it feel homey. Luckily my wife loves doing stuff like that so it won’t be very long. The 3 car garage is over 1000 square feet with a uranil so plenty of space with a pisser to boot!

    The crazy thing is that OR and WA has a lot of outdoor activities yet not many places ride ATVs or hike. Everything here is so heavily restricted it’s crazy. I’m looking forward to the freedom that idaho allows. With Wyoming and Montana being somewhat close, I’m sure I’ll keep busy for awhile. Which brings up another point. Ive explored OR and WA to the point that there is nothing new to see. Will be nice to see some new scenery.
