A friend once told me that this part of the US is like a retirement home for outdoors enthusiasts where everyone at any moment was ready to jump up and climb a mountain. This sounded too good to be true, but in the end, the summary wasn’t too far-fetched.
I consider this city to be the epitome of American easy living and quintessential Americana. Cost of living is outstanding, the city is growing, the housing market is in great shape, the city government has been tactful about government spending, education, and city planning, and the people are damn glad to meet you. BBQ was long a pillar of the city and still is, as my belly can attest, along with Jazz music and the status as a flyover state oasis.
My wife and I quit our jobs, sold our belongings and are hitting the road for nearly 2 years. We're blogging about our adventures, lessons learned, ideas, and recommendations. Take a gander at the content, leave a comment, or reach out to us to meet up on the road!
