I moved to Meridian about 6 1/2 years ago to enjoy the outdoors - Nebraska isn't exactly full of mountains or desert. I quickly got into camping and Jeeping.
My wife recently found a job here in Coeur d'Alene. She moved here in October of 2009 then I followed in July of 2010, after the school year. When I moved here I quit my job to go to school full-time. I'm currently enrolled at North Idaho College and work part-time. After I'm done with school the wife and I will discuss our current living situation and decide if we're going to stay here, go back to Meridian (I still own my house down there) or move somewhere else?
Why am I "here," as in Idaho? Because its the best place in the world of course!
I was born in Coeur d'alene, raised in post falls. As a kid, I always thought the first thing I'd want to do is move away when I grew up. Having been around the country, I can now say I've yet to find an area I'd rather live in.
X2. Raised in Meridian / Mtn Home. Joined the Navy and traveled "a bit" and only then understood the appeal of Idaho. I like both N and S ID. I live in Meridian, but really I could live in either N or S.
I was born and raised in Idaho. I stayed here (or rather, came back after hitting the Army for a few years) because it's a great place to live and raise a family. I love having 4 distinct seasons, and I love being able to have an urban area that can support things like headlining concerts, etc., but still be able to get away to the mountains within a half hour or so.
