3 1/2 hours to Portland, OR. and also Seattle, WA. 5.64" of annual rain fall. 325 days of sunshine a year. 4 full seasons, Almost sea level 394'. Some snow in the winter. No earth quakes. No tornados, no hurricanes. The Columbia river is 4 blocks away. The mountains are 1 hour or less from home.
The horizon can be seen in all directions, Average temerature is 73 deg F. Humidity is 30 to 50% on average. Loads of old Airstreams to rebuild.
What's not to like. We have looked at a lot of places and have property in Western N.C. but this looks like a great place to me

My plug for the beautiful Estancia Valley

Cheapest land and housing in New Mexico, a fraction of the cost of Santa Fe and probably among the cheapest place to live in the country. Good schools. Salt of the Earth community. One hour from Albuquerque or Santa Fe. Not as hot as south NM or cold as north NM. I could be your neighbor.

Wanna buy some property?

If I were you, I'd forget about Bozeman.

Here's a picture I took yesterday afternoon, floating the Yellowstone River, just a few miles east of there.



As you can see, there's no military bases anywhere in sight.

In fact, I can't understand why anyone would call this place Paradise Valley.

I lived a couple of years at the tip of my ring finger left hand. Boyne City, Mich. I was 11-14 and it was a great place for me. Great outdoor life. We then moved to the east San Francisco Bay Area. That was a great place for me as a teenager and young man. Swinging places in Berkeley and San Francisco before Viet Nam. When my own family was young we lived in Washoe Valley, Nevada just north of Carson City. Great place for raising a family before more Californians moved in. We finished raising our kids here in Placerville. Great Place for the kids out here in the wooded hills. Kids gone now but this place is great for Lynn and I. Been here nigh on twenty one years now. Life is good.

Yup, we do get some snow, but not a lot. The photo was taken out my back door looking west towards the Manzano Mountains this winter.

We're going to take a look at the Charlottesville VA area next weekend. It got some pretty high ratings from a couple of magazines reviewing "Best Places to Live". Someplace away from the snow and grey Winters, with a year mild climate would do it for me.

Over the years, we have found that whenever we travel, we always say, "Boy, wouldn't it be nice to live here." Family ties and careers are keeping us in New England right now, but we would like to eventually travel the country to see more of the "best places to live" in America.

Speaking of which, CNN/Money magazine publishes a top ten "Best Places to Live" list every year. Here is the top ten list for 2006:

Americans are flocking to places that offer big-city opportunities and amenities -- with a lot more green space and a lot less stress. See the top 10 Great American Towns.

1. Fort Collins, CO
2. Naperville, IL
3. Sugar Land, TX
4. Columbia/Ellicott City, MD
5. Cary, NC
6. Overland Park, KS
7. Scottsdale, AZ
8. Boise, ID
9. Fairfield, CT
10. Eden Prairie, MN

To each his/her own. For us the 25-foot Airstream is more than enough to travel for many weeks at a time. Our Jan/Feb trip this year was 7-weeks long and 4,500 miles in length. When we got home, we spent a while removing things that we never used on the trip. Now we have even more free space that we will probably fill with all that we will need for what might turn out to be 6 months or more on the road while our new home is being built.

We find it quite easy to live in small spaces. The Airstream seems huge compared to our VW Westfalia, for example.
