    Boise Idaho. Anyone live there?

    Can you give me pros and cons? How do you like it. There is a slight chance I might be moving there. I have been there a few times on assignment but my exposure is limited. What do you guys think of the city?

    Is this possible move to Boise work related or are you just getting tired of looking at Nevada bucks.....

    Haha. No it would be work related. Living in elk country wouldn't be a bad thing though. Maybe I could help thin out the wolf population as well.

    Boise is pretty nice. I spent the first 18 years of my life there and then another year there just very recenty. Boise was once fantastic; now that the population boomed with non-residents it is different but still a nice place to live. Winters are minimal; summers usually 90's to 100's. Lots of recreation surrounding the area. Not as many animals in the general vicinity due to everyone wanting their McMansion on prime winter habitat and new subdivisions that devestated many acres of waterfowl habitat.
    Most people are friendly; there is plenty to do. Cost of living is pretty good; now is the time to buy a house in Ada or Canyon Counties. We like it their but would not move back...to many people.
    You should enjoy it if you choose to move there but don't get sucked into the "blorange" bandwagon....

    I saw a TV show about best/worst places to live. Boise got good marks in everything but air quality. It was paired with living along the front range of Colorado for air pollution. But I think I could overlook that just for the hunting opportunity. Hell, I've lived along the Colorado front range and although it does suck at times, the windy days blows it all away sooner or later. Now the massive people influx is another matter.

    haha yes blorange is a bsu thing. Boise is really a great place but if I had to move back I would look to live outside of the city. Kuna or somewhere south of Nampa. Boise does get horrible inversions in the winter due to being in a bowl. Plus if you like Salmon fishing it is very close to some great rivers.
