Talked to the wife about Sandpoint some tonight, and did some googling. She was never too excited about Idaho before, but she's coming around now. Even better, our friends who were planning to move back to CO are beginning to think that CO may be overpriced and seem interested in Sandpoint as well. If I can get her friend to move there, the wife will be no problem. The only issue is jobs. I'm going to start seriously planning an internet based business now. That would be ideal.
I'm hoping I can get our CO trip changed to an ID trip this summer. Gonna keep working on Mrs. Teague.
It;s also a great jumping off place to some fantastic places in Washington, Oregon, Montana. I know someone who lives in Sandpoint and he loves it. Moved there from here.
It doesn't get too cold there either. Coldest air is blocked by the higher mountains tot he East.
Climate is mild, moderate snowfall in winter and definite 4 seasons. Winter highs are in the 30's, summer highs in the low 80's LINK
If any of you folks ever want to look at the climate of a particular area, this site is just awesome. Climate summaries
It's a Western States database and it's awesome for a geography buff like myself. Just scroll down to the "old selections method" which is so much easier IMO
