I live over near Rapid City, Ellsworth AFB to be exact. Very windy, very cold, although today it is supposed to be 60. I hunt duck, geese, deer, rabbit, squirrel, grouse, pheasant, and fish in the many lakes around here. The only thing I do not like about South Dakota is the price of housing. I do not understand why a house that would cost $100,000 in other places has to cost $175,000 + here. After all, there is not a whole hell of a lot up here. Rapid City is a good sized city, we get Cabelas this year (WOOT WOOT!!), but still the price of houses disgusts me. With that said I do plan to retire from the USAF in the next 1-4 years and do plan on staying here.
Originally from MI but my girlfriend's family is here and she wants to stay, so...
Anyway, if you move up here and move to the west side of the state shoot me a PM. If you move to the east side I am sure the folks on the boards from that side won't mind ya shooting them a PM eother. NOTE: Once you leave Mitchell, SD and head west toward Rapid City there is not much in between. Pierre (State Capital) is the major city in the middle and it ain't that big. The only McDonalds from the time you leave Mitchell is located in Rapid City, 250 miles west, LOL.
