Opheim.

Thats the secret. No one is gonna bother us in Opheim.


How about Two Dot or Plentywood?

Granrud's Lefse in Opheim is one of the few area bakeries that still produces the traditional Norwegian potato flatbread, Lefse.[1

We are worried about this around here. We are already inundated with massive growth and development. The last thing we need is more big city Northeasterners moving down here. They are doing a heck of a job of turning our state blue.

There's a simple solution.

Move to the forests of the north. Rust belt states could use the influx too. Turn them States Red!

My home in Rigby, ID is payed off but with 30 year rates under 3% I asked my mortgage broker what I could borrow. He told me my home was worth $600,000 and I coukd borrow $480,000 with no pmi. I asked the wife if I could borrow and invest in a spec and she said no way. She said the economy is too risky but i think values in Idaho are going to keep climbing.

Great place for a realtor - just keep selling those houses over and over again.

Specs are always risky, when everyone was doing them 08 they all lost their a$$. These crazy bubbles never end well, but they always end.

To anyone from out of state wishing to relocate to Montana I would recommend Glasgow, at the old airbase there they have numerous houses at very low prices. Living in Glasgow will give them a feel for Montana.

HA HA! Yup, I spent a week in Glasgow once. The coldest place I've ever been. It was 40 below the entire time I was there! And I live in ND!

This is not a good thing. Tell them MT is full as I saw on a bumper sticker yesterday.

Opheim.

How about Two Dot or Plentywood?


Two Dot is in an area that has already been noticed! I would imagine there is probably nothing most of us can afford there!-------Now Plentywood? I doubt any kind of a price increase there!

I know a few people who retired in MT and a few people who moved out of MT to retire.

Think about access to medical facilities.
Think about cold winters.

Actually, Boat,
I've been thinking of going to WF, apparently that Viral Girl is still haunting City Ma Hal. Was up there looking at the blowdown upper WF Lake and when we came through, there she was with posters about racism, racism -- and pretty ignorant verbiage -- "Not all Trumps are racist but Donald Trump is racist." I've got a "looting ain't free speech" sign (a panel, actually) in the back of the pickup and am starting to feel pretty confrontational.

But just really offensive, delusional thinking on her part. She needs an adult talking to.

I know that's unlikely, but I'm already pissed off enough....



I have a close friend in Big Timber. She takes care of the big ranches in the Big Timber area of the uber rich out off towners who come and summer in their multi million dollar ranches. She just mentioned this one extremely rich lady, from NYC and never held a job in her life , pulled her aside when she was cleaning her big ranch house. The lady, who recently became a woke social justice warrior, demanded to know if she was a racist Trump supporter and if she supported social justice. My friend reminded the rich trust fund lady that she never talks politics or religion with her clients. The rich lady insisted that she answer. My friend said that she told her as soon as they return their rich ranch land ( 2,000 acres) back to the local Indians they stole it from she would be more than happy to have that discussion. She also added they should return their winter estate in Florida back to the native Americans. And she added that she would appreciate it if she would stop stop treating her like a hired slave too and that she should she be ashamed of how she interacts with the locals who have lived and farmed the area for generations. And she reminded the woke bish that all of the uber rich white privilged out of staters have priced all of the locals out of housing, farming and ranching and most are too cheap to pay the locals a decent wage even though they can more than afford to. She has worked for this uber rich family 17 years and does a great job and treats the rich lady's family like gold.

She advised lady shut up and looked at her in disbelief and walked away.

So good luck with Montana not going full returd.


I was driving back from my cabin yesterday and had a long coal train on one side of 90 West between Big Timber and Livingston and a semi in the lane next to me. I have a "Jews Choose Trump" bumper sticker on my truck and I hear the semi honking at me...he pointed towards his door, where he had a "KAG 2020" sticker, then he pointed to the train on the other side of me and someone had spray painted "TRUMP 2020" on a stretch of cars. Yeah, there are too many leftists here, but I'm seeing WAY more Trump stickers/support than I ever expected.



You should have seen the Trump cruise and rally in Kalispell a few weeks ago, I'm pretty sure 90% of the town was in it or standing on street cheering. The line of cars went through town and halfway back. It was impressive for a smaller town.





Well that's just ducky, Montana guys, but how many electoral votes does Montana command?

The covid is one thing. But I suspect the riots in the big cities are another cause.
