NOTE FROM ADMIN (david): I am bumping this entry from DianeH (posted in June 2005) to the top again, as it continues to generate many helpful comments. You guys are all great, sharing your stories — thanks! There are several other entries under the category of “Moving To Montana” as well. And to those looking to move here to Montana: you’re on the right track — if you know that Montana is where you need to be, then I have no doubt that you will get here in due time.
Well, to start with I’m very new to blogging. Actually, I’ve never done this before so it might prove interesting if not amusing to the old pros here. I am currently living in Arizona but it’s just a temporary situation helping my parents out. I am looking to move to Montana in the next month or so. I was going to live in Polson but the deal fell through. Now I’m thinking I may have good chances at jobs more near Billings. I can’t stand city life but I don’t have a “portable” job yet so may just bite the bullet and start there. I have looked into Bozeman, Livingston, Lewistown, Laurel, and Red Lodge but I will admit I don’t have any idea where I would live. I know Kalispell is out of my price range even for rental places but I do love the mountains. If anyone has any ideas on places to live/work in Montana I’d appreciate them.
By the way, I’m not from California so I know that’s a plus…lol. Actually I was born in Ohio and just recently moved from Texas to Arizona.
