Utah in my life

So, my wife has an interview for a job in Utah next week. I can't be more excited for several reasons. 1. West is best 2. SW Utah is amazing and my FJ would love it 3. I'm a fly fisherman and there are a ton of great spots to take the FJ to go on fly fishing adventures. Current situation, I live in Oklahoma and have one great spot 4 hours away to fly fish in. Zero great spots to enjoy open public lands. Fingers crossed everyone!

Re: Utah in my life

I went to school out there and now live in the Southeast but I wouldn't have any problem going back.

Re: Utah in my life

Where in Utah? Best of luck to her (and you). There are lots of great places to live and wheel, but the pay/cost of living in the SLC/Provo-Orem areas are not the best. Property values are stupid when compared to pay in the SLC/Orem-Provo areas. Prices are definitely better than the west and east coast, but crazy when compared to similar employment and housing markets in the central/midwest.

All the mods and vehicles I have ever owned.

Anything less than absolute overkill is a half assed waste of time.

Can't tell you how jealous I am of you. I retire from the Marine Corps in a little under 3 years, and I've been begging my wife to look out west for us. I love the the beaches of NC, but I'd kill to be out in Utah or Colorado. You just don't get those views or locations out here on the east coast.

Re: Utah in my life

I think you can have multiple wives out there too. Trout, beer, and women! There's nothing like the streams out west. I started fly fishing in Idaho and I should've never done that.

Thanks guys for the best of wishes! We would be in Cedar City Utah, far SW. Really hoping this happens for her and for us in general because we both love the southwest so much. (As I sit here in 30mph winds in a parking lot) I hate windy days It usually means my hot water heater pilot light goes out, a few shingles get pulled up and need replaced. Really want to leave oklahoma. Ha!
