Hi. My family and I are contemplating moving to Idaho. We are looking for a quiet frontier area that is remote but not totally cut off. We are just curious to hear from you Idahoans how you feel about your State. We are wondering how the pay rate is there, especially for trade workers vrs cost of living ect? How are the schools, generally speaking? Are jobs scarce? What are winters like there? Do you think Idaho is ideal for an off-the-grid home?
My husband is a Meat Cutter with Management experience. Are there many opportunities for that type of work out there?
Sorry about the 20 questions! We are just really trying to make an informed decision.
From what we have read and researched Idaho is gorgeous and I haven't read anything bad about it! I am worried that it is close to liberal areas such as California, as we are a LIBERTY minded family. Thanks for any genuine feedback that ya'll would have to offer.

Horsegirl..I am also a liberty-minded Floridian who is making a move to Idaho. I have friends who relocated to Idaho and don't regret it one minute. Idahoans DO resent when "Regressives" move there to escape the decay "Regressive" policies created in California, then oddly enough, attempt to recreate the same conditions in their adopted state. I think being from Florida, your biggest issue will be adapting to the snow. Have a job lined up before you leave then work your tail off when you get their and you will be fine.
