I was stationed in Spokane, Wa for 4.5 years and just got back to Texas about a month ago. I loved it up there minus the winters, they were a little rough on me. We would visit CDA often as it was only 45 minutes from our house, lots of good local beers up there. Be sure that you look for a store called North 40, itís like a Tractor Supply and Academy combined! I will miss the summers up there but Friday night my buddies that are still up there all had snow shovels in their hands...good luck, amigo.

Lol. Not for sure if i am going to buy a snow shovel. I have a john deere with a cab and plan on buying a plow for the front and a blower for the back.

No, itís actually Lake Pend Oreille. Itís about an hour north of Lake CDA. No where near as crowded and everyone gets around on 4wheelers or SxS.

Thank you fir the kind words! We loved our property in Texas, and the real Texans we still have left in Smith County. It was 90 wednesday Oct. 21st when we finished loading the uhaul...we had our first 90 degree day the second week in April..7 full months of 90 degree weather was a major factor for us. We will give Idaho a try if its too cold we will move again, just seeking an area with four season climate, outdoor lifestyle and conservative politics.

I am a self employed landlord, my wife works for a diagnostic imaging company. She will need to be in Houston four or five times a year, her company will fly her down.

Best wishes to you and your family. It takes alot of cajones to just pick up and move across the country.

I've been considering Idaho for some time as well. Here are a few positive points relative to me and my current situation:

- Lower temps / 4 seasons
- Public hunting opportunities
- Lots'o Mountains
- Hiking / Fishing / Dual-Sport moto
- Low crime
- Mostly conservative population
- Decent school system
- Relatively low cost of living

Any insight into the taxes in ID? State income tax? Sales tax?

Looks awesome. Congrats to yíall for making the move. Idaho has long been on my list of places to visit. If you donít mind me asking, what is the real estate market like up there? Cost of living?
