    I concur, yet, that A.O. does get cold enough on winter nights to maintain a slight dusting of snow on the ground during the days also,,,a person really should listen to MARTY ROBBINS " RED HILLS OF UTAH " before tooling thru that 4 corner ,Mexican hat A.O. to fully appreciate what the dude was passionately sing about,,, I'd tooled thru Brice a couple of years ago& stopped at a roadside antique store,,,it was an hive of eclectic road warriors stopped there milling about, folks from,Japan,the Netherlands, spines like MELONFEUD Too! :)

    There is some truth to that. There is a stretch of river in Wyoming called the "Miracle Mile" that has some of the best trout fly fishing in the west. That place is always loaded with vehicles from Colorado. Some of our best hunting spots, too (thankfully the game and fish limits the amount of out of state tags distributed).

    People in Wyoming are generally friendly people. But they prefer that you visit, have a great time, and then go back home. They actually used to sell a bumper sticker that, basically, said the same thing (and this was way back even in the 80s).

    The wind in Wyoming is overblown, tbh (no pun intended). The wind is the worst in the eastern and central parts of the state. As far as internet services all the places I visited had cable internet with pretty high speeds, IIRC. The hospital in Casper is one of the best I've ever been to (though my experience with them is limited, I would choose Central Wyoming medical center over the few I've been to in Arizona. One being Banner Medical Center). However, if I were to move to Wyoming, Casper would not be my first choice (though I lived there for 27 years). The western part of the state would be where I had my eye. Specifically, Lander or Riverton. Both are within a couple hours of Casper and the hunting and fishing in that area are world class (if that's important to you).

    Good luck in your search, my friend.

    I don't live there now, so I don't know about internet access, but I loved Durango CO in the early 90's. It's only a couple hundred miles to Albuquerque if you need something that's not available locally.

    Which college team(s) do you follow? I'd move somewhere that I could attend their games if I didn't want to live close to my favorite NFL team.

    While I love sports, sports teams are not a factor in where I live. I will likely support any sports team near where I live unless its an NFL team playing the Cowboys :D
