    A coworker and I are always debating the good and bad of living in Sheridan wyoming so last week he proudly drops the new outdoor life magazine in front of me that shows their number two pick of the top 100 best places to live is Sheridan. In utter disbelieve I just scanned over the article then started laughing out loud when I cam to the mean house price listed as 108,000. you can’t even buy a .08 acre lot right next to the railroad tracks for that here. It kinda makes you wonder how much time these writers put into researching their articles, or maybe that’s the problem, he’s spent the last 20 years doing research so What’s your “best place” to live and why?

    The best place to live is on my street. If it weren't, I'd move.

    Because Buckeyes suck dog slime and MICHIGAN has the Wolverines and Mason.
    Besides that cesspool called Erie should not be compared to Michigan, Superior and Huron.

    Anywhere in the good old USA beats anywhere else in the world, yes even including Washington DC, and other similar metro areas, San Francisco and LA. If we keep working at it and do nothing about immigration and socialized everything we are going to wake up like Europe, which by the way I would not visit even if someone gave me the trip.

    I'll tell you why these writers have no clue about property values. They go to the websites that promise to appraise property without anyone actually having to do any work. My wife is a realtor, and says those sites drive her nuts. They are so far off that they're worthless. She does it the old fashioned way. She works to arrive at a figure.

    Jackmitch,

    You forgot Graham's Dairy, the Canteen, and the trap club at Issac Walton. These things alone make Ottumwa a great place to live.

    I just saw a copy the other day on a co-worker's desk, and don't remember much of the list. However I am familiar with several towns on the list and like them. Lewiston, ID was #2 by my recollection, and was the town years ago where Jack O'Connor chose to live. I like it, and ATA trap is active there, not mentioned in the Outdoor Life article. Pocatello, ID was #5. I'd actually rather live here than there, though both are nice. They have better upland hunting, while we are better for waterfowl and big game. Sheridan, WY is a very nice place, as is Dillon, MT.

    I've been fortunate enough to travel to 48 of the 50 states, and live in several different parts of the country. Much of the USA is very beautiful, but also much of it is in danger of being overun with too many people, too many houses, and too many machines. I am reminded of the Eagles' song "The Last Resort", which paraphrased, says something like "Call someplace paradise, kiss it goodbye".

    I live in Sheridan Wyoming, and the median price of housing is not $108,000, it is more like $190,000. It is a great place to live if you like the outdoors. We have a great trap club, the managemnent (well we wont get into that). If you love to hunt and fish bring your check book, and get used to the words no tresspasing and outfitters.
