    Alright so me and my fiance are moving in about two years time.
    I know it's sort of a long time away from now but I want to think about this now because I'm a person who enjoys planning and knowing what lies ahead of me. But the problem is that we're disagreeing a lot on moving.

    I like snow, mountains, trees, rain, open land where I can see for miles or at least be surrounded by trees. She gets cold easily but she likes mountains and trees but she wants to be somewhere near civilization.
    I don't really care as long as it's not too close to a major city.
    She said that 30 minutes away is acceptable and I agree.
    Oh, and we aren't really huge fans of beaches but we like them a bit.

    One of the biggest things for me is guns.
    I don't want to live in a state where I fear that they may one day try to take away my guns because to be frank, that's just not gonna happen.

    But my girlfriend doesn't want to live in a area where people are all connected and everyone knows each other. :upeyes:

    So what's everyone's ideas on moving?
    What state and what location would be best for us?
    I thought I would ask you guy's your opinions and see what you all thought about because you probably have more experience with different areas than me. Oh, and feel free to ask any questions that might help you answer. Thanks, guys!

    There is no civlization in Wyoming?

    It sounds to me like YOU are already living in a State that can give you what you want. I think your girl friend may need to move though.

    I've thought about Montana and Washington before.

    I really like the look of Washington because of all the trees and rain up in the Northwest area but the Twilight fan girls really screwed it up for me.

    How about Northern Az ? Very mild summers, and winters not as harsh as back east.

    New Hampshire would probably work. Nice mountains, plenty of snow activities, you can be in a big city or live 4 hours away in the middle of nowhere on the canadian border. Good fishing, alright hunting, good skiing, and 3 hours away from amazing skiing. Warm in the summer but usually not brutally warm. There are beaches 50minutes from nashua/manchester. Then theres the cape a few hours away in Mass, or Maine oceans. Also if you want some really city life your only 1-2 hours from boston depending where you live. The only thing is weather in New England is crazy some times.

    CCW permit is gauranteed within 14Days for 10$ and you can't be rejected unless your prohibited from owning a firearm.

    You don't mention what you do for a living or how you plan on making money where you go. This could effect some of the suggestions.

    Not enough green for us I think.

    The only think that she really mentioned wanting is trees and a decent sized town nearby.

    New Hampshire looks nice but I have an aversion to living up NE anywhere near those places for some reason but I'm willing to keep looking around online for more details on New Hampshire to see if we'd both like it. Thanks!

    Utah. We will never be disarmed.

    A friend was working on fiber optic lines in south west Wyoming near Evanston. The node access was in the middle of a farmers field. A cop pulled up to see if he was supposed to be there and in asking him what he was doing the cop asked "do you have a firearm in the vehicle?". He said no and the cop said "don't you know we have a law against that here?:rofl:

    Just consider your families too. While moving away from families is good for a young relationship, it can also be a pain. My wife and I moved from NY to NM after being together for 8 months and married for less than 1 month. We learned as a young couple to take on our problems without running to Mommy and Daddy. The downside to that was we only saw our families (both in NY) once or twice a year. We missed watching our nieces and nephews growing up and all sorts of family holidays. If your significant other is attached to her mother or friends by the hip, I wouldn't move her out of state. I've seen young wives/fiances bug out real quick when they're out of their comfort zone.

    I was actually there for a week earlier this month.

    Seattle, WA...hour drive and you are in the mountains snowboarding or hiking...also has some beaches...never gets too hot or cold.

    For being a very liberal city it is pretty relaxed on gun laws...

    Go 30 mins North or East to get out of the city.

    Washington (Not DC) State. . No income tax. . Reasonable gun laws (mandatory issuance of CCW, no exam/training required). Just stay away from the Seattle area. Look at Vancouver (Not BC) or Spokane. Added advantage to Spokane is that you are next to Idaho (which honors WA State CCW permits) and has great hunting/fishing, camping, hiking, Cabela's. . . In the Vancouver (Not BC) area you just 2 hours or less from the beach. We own property by the beach and take our camper there all the time.
