    yeah definitely! you're at alta usually right? I will hit you up there one of these days once we get some more snow, no pass this year but I would dig getting up there

    lol yeah... this is another great utah feature. I've been living here 3.5 years and I've gotten to be a much worse driver, but still every time I run a "yellow" light and think "ahh that was pretty bad" without fail I check my rear-view and there's at least one more car behind me

    whenever I go back east to visit family I assume I'll just have my license revoked once a cop sees me making uturns across 3 lanes of traffic like the utard that I sadly have become

    ive gotten quicker on my toes driving in Utah. Ny/NJ drivers are WAY more predictable. And yep..when you think the yellow you just ran was bad....easily 1 maybe 2 more went through behind you. Scary as fuck. As for the u-turns they are putting those cement medians all over the valley to stop that shit...thats another thing ive seen more of than iever did...uturns...its like people forget where they are going a LOT.

    oh yeah...Alta regular..let me know when you wanna make turns.

    RV, Tiny Home and Camper space in Bozeman

    If anyone does end up in Bozeman, can't afford a place and needs a place to park a tiny home, RV or tent, we have space in a nice spot. You can read about it if you search 'Golden Skyfall Hip Camp' . Hip Camp is like an AirBNB for camping, a pretty good place to find unique camp spots. I would think some of the hosts would do monthly like us in places near ski towns where it's expensive to rent. Whichever ski town you're thinking it could be a good resource. SLC....maybe not so much.

    [QUOTE Sad, but hard to complain when I'm a transplant myself. ][/QUOTE]

    I should clarify that I am a transplant as well and of course have no right bitching about the influx. My comment is more along the lines of, it's a natural feeling, it doesn't make it right or wrong just the inevitable feeling that goes along with life getting busier. I can't imagine what people grew up here feel like, God they must be so resentful of what it has become and I really can't blame them, eg. FZ. No one moves to where I'm from so I just have no perspective of what it's like when your home town becomes the place that everyone in the country wants to live in.

    All things considered, I will say that the quality of life here is still pretty great and there is so much value in living here between the skiing, fishing, biking, and adventuring... I'm sure not about to give up my spot chasing the "next best thing" 'cause at least I can make a living here and it will only get harder to get back in.

    Interesting. Sure would like to see something like that near Big Sky.

    Nobodies from here. Just some were born here.

    When I first moved here in 92 it was so quiet and empty and I kept telling people how great it was and I guess some of them believed me.

    Not a big deal until you realize that everyone else did the same damn thing.

    Buddy from down in Big Sky just sold his condo in the meadow. Nothing special, but decent. Bought for 165 post crash when there were some deals, sold for 369. He's buying a place a bit further south that sounds real nice.

    Good on ya Mark.

    Judging Salt Lake City, Reno and Bozeman on the quality of their architecture is like judging Florence and Paris on the quality of their Big Macs.

    Bozeman has significance for me, an east coaster, above it's hallowed reverence expressed online - age 15 parents sent me to MOLE, Montana Outdoor Leadership Expedition, based near Hebgen Lake, near West Yellowstone, near Bozeman, where Rolf Olssen (?) an ex-air force survival trainer lived and taught journalism at MSU. Must have been summer of 75 or 76 when I was there, there were 5 campers my year, too few to be viable, I suspect it was their last year of operation - the only gal in our group arrived early and slaughtered the calf we lived on the next four weeks; my first job was sitting by the hanging carcass at dusk with a 30.06 waiting for the bear to come "right through there if he comes"; we lived in tepees for four weeks in between increasingly long backpacking trips in the local wilderness. Fantastic experience I obviously remember well and treasure, thank you Rolf for introducing me to the high cold west.

    Reasons

    1. Inversions
    2. Mediocre food outside of the Asian/Japanese and Mexican Culinary realms. Coming from ATL this is a bummer. Do have chick fil a though so it could be worse
    3. SLC outside of mountains is not a very aesthetic city , especially compared to Atlanta with its abundant foliage and tasteful architecture.

    4. Mormon factor

    All in all, very happy here bc Iím 20 minutes away from LCC, but the aforementioned reasons detract from the overall living experience
