If so, is it very nice place to work in and live? The reason why I ask and if I ever get out of the bad financial shape I"m in and have enough money to move I'm considering moving to another state and get out of this miserable meth induced state of filth known as Kentucky!

The reason why I"m considering the Dakotas is they along with other states like Hawaii, Montana, Washington state, and Nebraska as rated as some of the happiest states in the nation according to poles such as this one:

http://www.forbes.com/sites/melaniehaiken/201...

And in a separate pole of the most DEPRESSED STATES in the nation, West Virgina was rated #1 and guess which one was just behind it? That's right! Piss stinking Kentucky! Here is the pole that was done,

But in all seriousness, has anyone here ever been to north or south dakota or any other of the more happier states? Are they as happy as they are said to be? Because from my own experience Kentucky sure seems to be neck and neck with West Virginia as the most miserable.

And when I do have enough money to get out of here you morons can help me move if you like! Bunch of losers!

Lived in North Dakota for eight years. If you like winter you will love it. The second year I was there we had snow on the ground June 3rd. I love winter so loved every minute I was there hope to retire there. Right know there is a lot of work there in the oil and gas fields but just like here they have a hard time getting people to work, no one can pass a drug test.

I spent a year in South Dakota near Mobridge on a project and it was Vast Space, Few people, almost no trees, and if you live in one of the few larger populated areas you pretty much have the same problems as we have here with dopers and drugs... If you can get out of towns and don't mind Vast Distance between Anything and Winters that are very cold and snow driven with summers that are hot and dry then you can pretty much do what ever you want in your life without anybody caring, or knowing...

On the Up side the Job Market there today is Booming and there are jobs in every field from the Oil industry to trucking to construction and service industry... But Cost of housing, if you can even find a house, is Outrageous ..

It's been a Very long time ago I was there and I hear the population has went way up because of the oil boom in the region so not sure how it is today...

Like anyplace it's what you make of it... And the people you associate with... In my long life I have been to all 50 states and lived for at least a year in 13 states and they all have their good and bad points...

Prettiest would have to be Colorado Springs, Colorado,,,, And best place is a hard one because Everyone has different enjoyments in life... But for me it would be Custer, Idaho... Loved that place... Mountains galore, very few people, hunting and fishing to no end, And no body bothers you ...
