Dozens of small towns in Wyoming
No state income tax
No gun control of any kind
Friendly foilks
Most of the conveniences if you really want them
Most places within less than a day's drive of a big city if you need that.
Not democrat friendly though!

Only problem I have is after getting used to the convenience is remembering not to do it in the Walmart parking lot when I get out of the truck!

and...many insurance companies wont insure your house if youre far away from the fire dept bldg or on a dirt road. and if they do...that 3 grand youre trying to run from in taxes just goes into insurance.

the only snow plowing on county roads you get is your own. sometimes you gotta plow your way to town.

so again...it aint as easy as you think.

I'll take the country living any day!

I grew up in a town that WAS 18,000 people and now over a 100,000 not including students at the 5 different colleges there.
Growing up most of my free time was spent at my grandparents farm in the country where there were farm chores,hunting,and fishing to do all the time. They didn't have air conditioning,they didn't have a gas or electric heat,they didn't have indoor plumbing or running water in the farm house.They had two wood stoves,a outhouse,and a water well that was filled from the house gutters not the easiest way of life,but some of my best childhood memories were there on that simple farm out in the middle of no where.

The wife and I bought a little place in the country just before we were married 25 years ago where I have run a HVAC business since 1990 and farm some row crops here as well.We really enjoy the country living along with the small country schools our children attended and the people here in our country community are best neighbors you could ask to have....Sadly that city of a 100,000 plus is moving this way

Is Wyoming the only state that can leave the union if they are imposed with restrictions on gun rights? One of the states made that deal with the Gov, but I cannot remember which one.

Ive always wondered what it must be like living quietly away from the city lights. I grew up in the Philly burbs, and have set up my wife and family here. Bobski, that was a deep post my friend. You bring the backwoods fantasy living back to reality!

Still, I dont think I could ever fully leave the burbs and go all out into a land where its a good mile until the next neighbor. I would, however, someday like to push out west away from Philly and settle in a remote suburb area....no closer than an hour drive to the city. I want land, lower taxes, and a better sense of living. Problem is, my wife is GLUED to her friends and family around here and wouldnt wanna move too far.

Thinking about packing it in, selling my home that costs $3,500 a rear in taxes to support, and moving to a small town, in an under developed county, with little or no taxes.

Have any of you, moved away from the large cities, to sit on a porch swing, and get out of the turmoil?
I bounced around bigger cities the first 25 years of my life and hit a wall. I moved to a small town where I loved to come and fish and moved from it when it got a little crowded. Now I live in a little place that does not have a traffic light and could not be happier. I can shoot on my land asnd if I see a car then they are pretty much coming to see me or they are lost. We have a few cows, a bunch of chickens. We where running a greenhouse but I am not sure we're going to do that for a while I can get water for any of a few springs. Man it's cool to get water for free that people pay for by the bottle... Litterally, There are two companies that sell water that comes form the same source as we get here. Small town life is the best! In a way it's like going back in time. Where a mans word still has weight and people help each other in times of need. But still leave you the hell alone...Unless you need something..heh

If you have to drive your truck to go Elk hunting you live in an urban area? If the only wolves you read about are in your Red Rideing Hood Book you are crowded. If Mountain Lions don't control stray cats in you back yard you are too near town. If you think coyotes are dangerous you have never met a Grizzly Bear.
It takes more than a mail box to call your home rural.
