Move to Montana, Bears won’t kill you

Jack MT Goatheads MPC /

Need more moped people in Billings MT! Got a small crew forming and I need a roommate so why not say fuck it move out here? Billings is fairly cheap to live in, plenty of work (already phasing out of quarantine and was #7 of 10 best states to live in during the pandemic)

2 bed apartment or house is $600-800/mo

Studios 375-550 (only small pet friendly)

Starting wage is 10-12/hr for service jobs. If you can weld, CDL, or machine there’s so much demand here because everyone goes to the ND oil fields and makes BANK which is not a bad option to stack some cash but rough long term.

No sales tax too! Oh and vehicle inspection, NOPE! Just need lights and a windshield out here and no emission standards so grab a beater truck for $900 and let the good times roll.

Montana is also a DUI loophole state so even if you got a brush with the law you can ride mopeds.

So if any moped homies sick of paying too much in an expensive city or just want a fresh start hit me up! It’s definitely not rural Montana in Billings but not hectic city either.

Re: Move to Montana, Bears won’t kill you

I've been planning on moving to the Midwest, but maybe MT isn't a bad idea. Man 10 years ago there were still $400 studios here in Seattle.....

What are actual home prices like? I'm looking for a starter, maybe 1br with garage.

I'm done renting.

It’s definitely worth a look! Not for everyone but nothing is. It’s much flatter here compared to the other cities in Montana and is the most populated (still only 110k people) A big change from Seattle for sure!

House prices are pretty cheap especially vs Seattle. I have been considering it as well since renting sucks and I have a large dog so makes it difficult finding a place. You can find a decent mobile home for an easy flip or rent out for 15-35k. A decent 3 bed house on nice plot of land within town +\- 200-250k. I saw a 1 bed house with a big yard in butte MT for 12k actually.

Had my eye on this one wth the attached garage (Heights is a good low crime area to live, If you don’t mind a little sketchy stuff south Side is cheap and lots of fixeruppers) but not trying to buy a house right now or possibly ever if I can finish my school bus conversion.

Aurora, Twinsburg, Chagrin Falls, Bainbridge, Manuta, Hudson, Stow, Kent, Solon, Northfield, Cuyahoga Falls, Macedonia areas of Ohio are really good and only a short commute to Cleveland, The weather is very good with several riding days through the short winter

50% of Montana crimes is Billings but mostly property crime. There’s shootings on the south side (two a few weeks ago) but nothing like Chicago or other large cities. People typically prefer western MT like Missoula but it’s expensive and overcrowded. I lived there 10 years and just couldn’t afford to live there once I got a dog.

Do some googling and if you have any questions or planning to visit let me know!!

What are the winters like?

Pretty cold. Get good outdoor gear and a snowmobile you’ll love winter! But yea November- March it’s cold. It snowed a little this May 11th actually. Summers are amazing though there’s no humidity and usually cools down into 70-60s at night but can get into 100s in July/ August.

Hunting, snow sports, good medical marijuana, and snowmobiles get you through the long winter 👍 I’m sorta a snowbird and would just kick it in the AZ desert for the winter but miss the winter activities.

I liked Calispell area, but Great falls sucks. Like the Texas of the north. Don’t gamblers(poor idiots) pay all your taxes? If the south wants to secede again, I vote that MT and MI go too.

Re: Move to Montana, Bears won’t kill you

grizzlies run 40 mph. I would have my tomos running on the stand for headstart lol.

Run downhill bears can't they tumble.

Don't ask I lived in the mountains. No grizzly thank God just like big dumb dogs. Firecrackers and champagne poppers mandatory bear repellant spray works best on peeps wouldn't wanna piss it off thenwrassle with it

Remington 12 gauge magnum slugs....they fix bears, but you have to be brave and be close, I'll pass. Hummin, commin atcha....

Kalispell is a fun place in the summer near the lake and not far from GNP. You’re thinking of Idaho as the Texas of the north and I won’t defend great falls it’s pretty grimy but does have some nice places. There’s the Sip N Dip lounge that has real live mermaids and the town has a huge cement skate park.

There’s plenty on “casinos” but most are wise enough not to go, mostly retirees or tourists. Really more of a way to drink for free or cheap but sadly some get carried away.

But our tax money primarily comes from tourism... Yellowstone national park, Glacier national park... ever heard of them?

Also you really want Montana to secede from the US with all the active missile silos we have? 😘 Nah you don’t need that stuff!

Re: Move to Montana, Bears won’t kill you

Montana used to be cool. I lived in Missoula in the 90’s. Now it’s just full of California liberals and the arrogant Hollywood type. Calispell is a tourist trap. Eastern Montana sucks balls. Just flat, cold and windy, like Kansas. There’s still a few places left that are ok. Northwestern MT is pretty nice, up by the Idaho panhandle, and down as far as Lolo, going over the Pass toward Lewiston.

I am well aware of the silos. More silos there, but less warheads on them than at some other locations in the US. That’s why Great Falls was so disgusting. I got to see further into all that than I wanted to. Was scheduled to go into a silo but weather got too serious. You have to worry more about snowy and icy roads there, the wind will blow you off the road.

For real, please! I've never seen that part of the country and would love to see life there as a moped enthusiast documented. Before the pandemic I was getting excited to figure out how to get to y'alls rally in new mexico, I've never seen any of that either.
