Default GTI (Gone To Idaho)

After contemplating it for a while, we are relocating to North Idaho! It is somewhat bittersweet to leave Texas. I love what is left of our culture and I am an 8th Generation Texan. I have deep roots here. However, my ancestors came here looking for what I am seeking in Idaho. In our opinion Coeur D'Alene has it all. Four seasons, lots of lakes and water, conservative populace, MILLIONS OF ACRES OF PUBLIC LAND!! Hunting is almost exclusively on public land in Idaho. Over 75 percent of the state is USFS, BLM, State, NPS, or USFWS land. Game to hunt within an hour of my house:
1. Whitetails
2. Mule Deer
3. Elk
4. Moose
5. Black Bears
6. Sheep
7. Goats
8. Wolves
9. Turkeys
10. Quail
11. Geese/Ducks
12. ETC, ETC

One of the things that surprised me are the amounts of turkeys and whitetails up there. I knew their were deer but Turkeys are EVERYWHERE.

Also, I am selling stuff, so if you want something hit me up! Here are my classified ads so far.

I may want to have a long talk with you fairly soon. I also am looking to retire and move to the N/W. Been selling parts to the east coast of Washington State, Oregon, and Northern California for years. It's like selling stuff to people in Llano. There are some serious redneck hunter / fish heads up there.
The fishing opportunities are as cool as the hunting. Buying licenses in 3 states and Canada should be reasonable as a senior........

Thank you all for the well wishes! Half the time I am scared of the change, half the time I am angry for waiting so long. We are really excited. We don't see any downsides other than leaving a few friends and family down here, that mostly live in other parts of the state than where we currently live anyway.

That was one of the factors in our move... Tyler is still pretty much old Texas but none of the major cities are.

Lol average annual low in CDA is 10. Hasn't been cold enough to freeze over lake CDA since 2000. We expect snow but I doubt I'll be shoveling much of it. I have a tractor with heated cab and I'll be buying a plow and blower. Might shovel a path on the back deck. But that beats 7 months of 90 degree weather to me. Summer time is basically unusable outdoors in daylight down here. We both want to experience 4 full seasons. I am looking forward to living 30 minutes from a ski resort, especially since this one isn't overrran with weirdo snow hippies from Denver.

I have contemplated moving back there to get out of this liberal ****hole Austin has become. I grew up in Orofino, and have alot of family and friends there. The last few years we spend all of September in the area. I know quite a few people in the Rathdrum area and will say the growth up there is happening bigtime. Alot of people moving to that Coeur d'Alene to Spokane corridor. The good thing is, it's just a short drive to some of the best hunting, fishing, and outdoor life that one could ask for. Enjoy and I will follow your move.

The CDA-Spokane metropolitan area is going crazy. Super hot real estate market. Very conservative and a friendly good place to live, we are excited.

I will continue to post on here, I still have ties in Texas and will be down occasionally. You should totally follow me up there! Would love to gtg.

The wife and I are debating on getting another place in either Oklahoma or Idaho. My Californian wife argues against Idaho because it’s too close to Cali and she is afraid the liberal Californians are going to move there and ruin it. Lol.

Hover your mouse over Kootenai county on the link below. It is one of the most conservative counties in the country....And almost everybody up there are conservative evacuees from the left coast craziness.

https://www.politico.com/election-results/2018/idaho/

Not knocking Oklahoma, but don't be afraid of ID going liberal IMO. If anything it has trended further to the right the last few elections.

Do you have kids? What are their approx age ranges? (Maybe I can convince my wife bc Mr Bucksmasher did it with his kids at ages x,y,z).

No kids yet but we are trying, thats yet another reason we are moving. We want to raise our kids with an outdoors lifestyle, not inside hiding from the heat.

Congrats, Bucksmasher and thanks for the info. If you are ever in Moscow, Idaho, look up Brian Keeney, the owner of Occam Defense. He’s a helluva guy and a Constitution loving Patriot. He also makes a **** fine AK.

The wife and I are quite a ways from retiring but land ain’t getting any cheaper and we want to retire somewhere that has four seasons. I love Texas but the older I get, the less I can handle the heat. Idaho sounds like heaven to me. Hunting in the mountains and fly fishing? Count me in.

Of course it was pretty last week, and will be warm next week but we get stuck in the first big snowstorm of the year... I love watching jt snow and it is much more comfortable than the 90 degree weather we packed up in!

We sent our daughters to school in Post Falls till college and would go several times a year to the that area . Our oldest daughter just bought a place in Post Falls ; she loves the area . We just bought a place near the Oklahoma / Kansas line but still may end up in Idaho later on . It is a Beautiful Area and you are Spot On with all the Positives . If you miss The Austin Scene you can run over to Spokane ; it's a bit Liberal but not as bad as Austin . There are some Californians that have migrated that way but it is not as bad as it was several years back . The only thing you might miss is Bass Fishing if you like that .

This looks like a great plan! Keep us updated; I am definitely interested to see what life is like throughout the year.

I would miss saltwater fishing pretty bad, but the trade off looks good at first glance.

Welcome to the west sir, you will love it, except the longer winters.

And they are called "snow machines" up this way.

Your current local weather, we're sitting at 4 degrees right now with almost a foot of snow.

And they are called "snow machines" up this way.



Your current local weather, we're sitting at 4 degrees right now with almost a foot of snow.
We are in Sheridan, currently. Had to stop here yesterday due to bad weather. Taking care of the horses, walking the dogs, and checking the vehicles antifreeze in 14į degrees was much more comfortable than loading the u-hauls last tuesday and wednesday in the 90į heat. Of course taking on and off a lot of heavy clothes is a pain but so is sweat running down your back at the end if october.

I would miss saltwater fishing pretty bad, but the trade off looks good at first glance.
I LOVE to saltwater fish but we were 5 or 6 hours away from that in Tyler anyway. Probably the same in Coeur D Alene. Different from Texas salt but still saltwater.
