I've been a city slicker all my life. I'm more than ready to move to a rural state/area. Some things I'd consider important: - Low Taxes - 2nd Amendment Friendly - Low Crime - Minimal Diversity - Good schools, economy - Affordable Housing Opinions fellas? Twenty or so years ago Colorado would have been a beautiful state to consider. Now real estate is ridiculous and they've gone full libtard. Same thing with Washington State, though Central Washington seems like a nice area. Also seen several towns in Utah mentioned as having great economies (St George, Orem, Provo, SLC). Though not sure what itd be like to live amongst Mormons.
