.. Is likely where we are headed. Missoula/western/NW montana. Maybe even Idaho. Nothing set in stone. Alaska is basically off the list for us due to grandkids and family yadda yadda... =(

So we want some acres with few to no neighbors to hunt and fish on or near. Like minded neighbors are a bonus.

So we been looking at a few options in your areas. We shall see..

"So we want some acres with few to no neighbors to hunt and fish on or near. Like minded neighbors are a bonus. "

Then avoid Missoula/western MT. Its overrun with the liberal elite, and the land in the Bitterroot is managed like California. Everyone keep out. Land is ridiculously overpriced, covenants in subdivisions restrict times children can be outside...

My beloved Bitterroot is unrecognizable anymore.

Put on some Birkenstocks, stop bathing, go on welfare and vote socialist/democrat you will fit right in.

Dropy,
Check this out. I looked at this property sometime ago. It does have a spring/creek where the previous owners got their water. I would buy it if I had the money.

That's not too pricey for that area, the Flathead Valley is pretty expensive.

That area south of great falls along 15 seems interesting also. I have seen some nice deals over there. Will have to breeze thru and and check it out also. How is that area?

We've been in the Flathead Valley for 3 years now, and have never loved a place more. 50% hard-working local middle class folks, 50% moneyed folks retired from or havi g second homes from California, which has driven up cost of living in our small town of 20,000, but we love it here and plan to stay here until the Lord takes us home.

FYI, hard to find a well-paying job for a general citizen without highly-skilled qualifications, sometimes even then. The Flathead pays less than lots of other places we have lived across the country try because they can, we employ people doing a $16-18/hour job from anywhere else that here pays $12/hour, because the company can. Not great, but our company is far from the only one that takes advantage of that opportunity here.

Self-employed or a semi-retired/retired with few income needs? No place finer. It can be windy from the mountai s all arou d us, but o. The West side of the divide we get the beauty of the winter without the harshness or the length. Don't come if you don't love living in the cold part of the year; I'm just sayin'...

HTH, BS

Well my cabin is finally about 2 weeks from being finished, we finally got the load of logs we have Been waiting for. Found out the guys we "were" getting them from weren't paying the guy they were getting them from. That ordeal only put me 6 months behind. Well now I should have it 90% done and can take photos of the cabin and get them posted along with my for property sale add.

And its Breezy here but nothing like the wind tunnel, North Dakota is.

I can agree that land has gone up. People like me, who can sell our houses for LOTS of money right now are moving out there.

I have a friend about to move back to Montana, in that area. My wife and I have looked at MT and ID pretty hard. We're not ready to draw a line yet where we are, but we're in a heavy Blue state and looking at options. If the wrong law drops, my wife knows I'll leave overnight. It's kind of like the people that left NY and CT when AR's were banned.

While I can afford to leave and deal with stuff like this, a lot of others can't. With that said, I'm in a situation where the people from CA are driving up the market so fast that people are making offers that are $20k over asking without even looking at the house again. We're trying to decide whether to sell "just cause" or wait it out and let the market crash again.

NW Montana is great, and not many liberals unless you go to Missoula, or the Bitterroot Valley, or Bozeman. Missoula and Bozeman are college towns, that's why.

I live about 70 west of Missoula in a very rural area, and most people where I live are just like me; conservatives who just want to be left alone. Not many liberals to see around here.

But, jobs. I freelance over the internet so it doesn't matter where I live. But there aren't many high paying jobs. If you live close enough to Missoula or Kalispel to work there, unless you are in a great field like nursing or computer programming, the cost of living vs wages is weighted the wrong way.
